Review: Summer with the Country Village Vet by Zara Stoneley

Summer with the Country Village Vet (Love in Langtry Meadows, Book 1)
Fall in love with a brand new cosy romance series from bestselling author Zara Stoneley.

When Lucy Jacobs is made redundant from her inner-city teaching job she fears her career is over. Teaching is all Lucy knows and she's determined to get back in the classroom as fast as she can.

Except the only job on offer is at an idyllic village school in the middle of nowhere – Lucy's idea of hell. Where are the disadvantaged kids who need saving, where is the challenge?

But as Lucy finds herself welcomed into the warm-hearted community of Langtry Meadows, she begins to realise new challenges await – like frogs in the classroom, a rather difficult donkey, and a very brooding local vet…

Local boy Charlie Davenport has his own issues about living in the close-knit village of Langtry Meadows. His private life is already fuel for the well-meaning gossips and the very last thing he needs is to get close to the new school teacher…no matter how lovely she is.

But as summer days drift away Langtry Meadows weaves its magic, Charlie and Lucy both get the chance to turn over a new leaf and start anew…maybe with each other?

A fun, romantic story to make you smile and long for your own country escape.

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

Once again Stoneley delivers with a book that you just cant put down, one filled with fantastic characters who can be serious but have a softer and funnier side to them. As a happily married woman I have to live vicariously through the female leads to get that fluttery in your belly attraction and Stoneley offers that up by the bucket load in this book. Hello Mr hunky vet Charlie Davenport. Right from the very beginning I knew I was going to like him... ('like' may be a little tame) and I was not disappointed.

I loved the chemistry between Lucy and Charlie.
I loved the country village setting.
I loved the friendship that felt so natural between Lucy and the residents of Langtry Meadows.
I loved all the different appearances from animals.
I could go on and on....

I am so glad this is the first in a series.. I have so many questions. Like who Is Elsie Harrington (I have my suspicions, and I hope I'm right but it's a long shot). Do Jill and Matt get together? And does little roly-poly puppy come and live with Lucy? You know, all the important ones...
