From the publisher:
Where can you turn when the world turns against you? When Elizabeth Barnes’ life fell apart she never imagined that she’d be rescued by a new friend on four paws.
The plan was simple: Elizabeth would ignore the fact that she was unjustly fired from her dream job, fly across the pond to settle an unexpected inheritance in her father’s home country and quickly return to reclaim her position among the Silicon Valley elite.
But when Elizabeth stumbles upon an abandoned puppy, she’s shocked to realize that her brief trip to England might turn into an extended stay. Her strict itinerary is upended completely by the pup’s dogged devotion, and soon the loveable puppy helps her to connect with a tight-knit community of new friends on two legs and four, from the aunt and uncle she didn’t know existed, to a grumpy coffee shop owner to two very opinionated sheep. Along the way Elizabeth is confronted by long-kept family secrets, hard truths about her former life and a new romance that might lead her to question everything she knows about love. Because sometimes rescue magic happens on both ends of the leash.
Is this not the cutest cover ever?? The book is just as cute, especially if you like British romcoms – and I do.
Elizabeth, or Bess as she is automatically christened in the UK, is a social media driven, San Francisco start-up, worker bee at the top of her game. Until she gives an interview and spills the tea, as it were. It costs her everything, her job, her stock options, her reason for being. So when a relative she never heard of tells her she has an inheritance, she figures why not and hops across the pond.
She never figured on falling in love – with her new family, the small, country town, the puppy she rescues, or the best looking man she’s ever seen. These characters – including the animals – come to life on the page, as does the location, and I never wanted to leave. But alas, I eventually had to turn the last page.
If you want a feel good read, and right now I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t, do yourself a favor and spend a few hours with this lovely book. Highly recommended!
