Enjoyed all of the 6 books in this series but this one was a bit lacking compared to the other 5.
All of the books are an easy read, just what I needed before bed.

The last one in the series? Written in 2009, so that is my assumption. Another pleasant, easy read, if a little disappointing in general story lines. Kate returns this time as a qualified vet and another new vet, Sebastian also begins working at the Barleybridge Practice. Rather too 'perfect' a story and outcome, but Rebecca Shaw has left it open enough that there could be a seventh in the series. Overall a nice set of six stories about the vets and their goings on.

A lovely, gentle read that is utterly relaxing and takes one away in to the life of quiet business in the English countryside. I want to live in a village like that imagined by Shaw. Her world does have the pain and suffering of modernity, and yet, it is tempered by kindness, honesty and straightforwardness. Beautifully done. A perfect antidote for the bustle of city living.

another fantastic book by rebecca shaw, and the thing that I like most about it was that it brought in characters from her other series of books (turnham malpass) as customers at the vets, hence bringing her books together. definitely recommend her books

As with the rest of Rebecca Shaw's novels this was a nice accessible read. It was easy going and the perfect before bed reading that required little intellectual input but passed by in a pleasant way.

I found in places the language, especially the dialogue, could be wooden and unnatural, but I didn't want it to end.

All a bit simple and trite. Except for a few moments, one wonders if it's written for children because the language is so basic.

nice book, but a bit "jumpy" in the narrative a bit as if there were some story lines almost missing.
