    A 'purrfect' read!!!

    Where would we be if we made different choices in the past? If only we hadn't lost touch with our best friends! After running away from her old life and then returning to her home town, Lisa asks herself just these questions. Staring out again, her skills as pet- sitter are less than perfect and this is creating some hilarious situations that really made me laugh as I was trying to picture them!!! Roll on Jack the cross-eyed Labrador and his owner Winnie's words of wisdom and you have a book that is hard to put down. Not just a lighthearted novel but also a great story of starting to question your own actions and making amends - Carol Thomas has a wonderful way with words making this a great novel to get stuck into!

    Lovely story

    I thought it would be about the funny tales of a pet sitter, but I was wrong. Although we follow Lisa when she is doing her job, the story is about so much more. It's about friends, love and family lost and found, about a secret that seems to threaten but are lovely when revealed, about changes in life. There are fun parts but also moments filled with a lot of tears. Some are happy ones, some are sad ones. But in the end, everything comes together and only happy tears remain. The book is fluently written and it took me by the hand and would not let go until the last full stop. Loved it!

    Fun read with interesting characters

    Lisa moves back to her home town after many years travelling and living in London. Heartbroken, can she rebuild her life and her friendships, whilst trying to develop her new business as a pet sitter. Add in the ex-best friend with her brood of 4, the ex-boyfriend and a hot new guy, and you are in for a fun read. It's not a comedy per se, just some fun situations that Lisa gets herself into, as well as tears and deep emotions.

    Sweet Novel

    Lisa Blake leaves her desk job and rotten boyfriend in London for her hometown. Since her parents spend part of the year in France, she is back in her childhood bedroom and trying to jumpstart her pet sitting business. The pets are not as purrfectly behaved as she expected which leads her to hilarious encounters with an ex-boyfriend, a best friend she lost touch with, and a mysterious man she keeps running into. This was a sweet novel with a lot of humor and a lot of chances to wonder what might be different if Lisa had made different choices when she was 18. It was a pleasure to read.

    A refreshing laugh out read

    Oh what a laugh out loud read this was. Lisa, recently separated from her boyfriend is back to where it all began. Back to her parents house but not quite back to how things were. She meets her old best friend in the most unfortunate circumstance. (Being a Mummy, I could totally relate to Felicity's state of mind and state of dress. 😉) The scenario plays around in Lisa's head until she finds herself face to face (at her parents front door) with her best friend from school - her best friend ever but the best friend she hurt all those years ago. The two ladies reminisce and cry (as we do) and within seconds it is as if they have never lost touch. Lisa is a local pet sitter who simply cannot stop losing the pets she's either house-sitting for or out walking with. It is very amusing. She meets some lovely people at the same time as losing the pets she is responsible for and one particular pet sitting project leads to her trying on a wet suit and bumping into her ex (and extremely handsome ex) boyfriend. Here is where the story heats up and just fits together like pieces of a puzzle. I thoroughly enjoyed this (even though I am allergic to most animals and not a furry friend lover). It was entertaining. Light hearted and extremely easy to read and relate to (except for the losing pets part). My favourite bit was definitely in the Chinese takeaway. Don't know what I'm on about .... have a read yourself ... see if you spot it! 😉
