I have started another four part serialised novel and this time I am taken from city to country with Sam.
Her life as a receptionist in the city vets is okay but she wants more, she secretly would love to be a vet. But it has always been out of her reach. Sam seems to always be broke and lives in a poky flat and rarely gets any fresh air. Arguing with her boyfriends seems to be the norm and he isn’t that interested n the future either.
When she gets the opportunity to go and visit her Nana, she jumps at the chance to take stock of her life.
Staying with her Nan, she grows fond of the old dog Rufus who has given her Nan meaning and purpose since her husband died. It seems that Sam has arrived at the right time, to help with Rufus.
It is through this that she meets Joe, the local vet. He seems to have a great affinity with animals but his skills with dealing with humans is rather lacking. Sam and Joe clash.
But the Sam receives some news, which might mean she needs to return to London.
Back in London, Sam realises that life is not for her there. Her boyfriend is less than supporting and she realises how much she misses the countryside and the love that her Nana gives her, so unconditionally,.
Trouble is her Nana seems to have not been herself.
Step forward Sam and a little stray cat called Ebony. Sam has an idea which will solve not just some of her problems but her Nana’s as well.
However she has to encounter Joe again in and it seems that her skills as a receptionist could well be put to good use, for a while anyway as Sam has left London with something else not just a little black cat.
Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for allowing me the opportunity to read these novellas, I look forward to the next two parts.
Part One is out now and Part Two is published (for kindle) on 16 Feb. Parts Three and Four in March and April resepctively.
If you want to wait until June, then you can read the novel as a whole – still in my opinion they best way to enjoy any story.
