Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what
Vet Molly has always been career driven and focussed on caring for her animals, but when she meets a gorgeous Mystery Man at a conference and their connection is off the charts, well, one night off work won’t hurt anyone…except the next morning he’s vanished and all Molly knows about him is his first name.
Three months later, back in Love Heart Lane, everyone loves the story of Molly’s amazing one-night stand. It’s so unlike her! But when Mystery Man turns up walking his dog through Primrose Park and their night together seems to mean nothing to him, Molly needs her friends and neighbours more than ever. And especially when she’s left with the most unexpected of surprises…
The author brings us another fabulous heartfelt read in the Love Heart Lane series. Each book is a self contained story that focuses on different characters so can easily be read as a standalone.
We first meet Molly when she attends a conference of which she throws caution to the wind when she meets handsome looking man who she falls for on meeting him. Sparks are definitely flying between these two but the next day Molly comes crashing down to earth. I instantly felt for Molly and I was totally intrigued at how this story was going to play out with such a rocky start.
Molly being a vet, it’s inevitable that animals are going to be part of the story and they come in the form of man’s best friend. There are more than a few humorous moments with one particular dog and it made for lots of light hearted reading. There are some more serious topics involved also of which one particular storyline made my blood boil. I love how even in this particular genre, the author has created some highly unlikable characters which had me jumping up and down at the injustice of what was going on. There are quite a few threads running through the story of which has the reader going through an array of emotions.
Primrose Park is another wonderful story by the author who knows how to pull on my heartstrings and emotions. Overall it is a heart-warming and light hearted read yet covers more serious topics of which the author handles beautifully. The style of writing brought vivid images to my mind and I loved how it was almost brought to life in my head. Never mind the characters falling for the charms of Love Heart Lane, I feel a sense of home every time I pick up a book in this gorgeous series. A compulsive read that will fill your heart full of emotion.
