When the going gets ruff, it's time to make a change...

In need of a fresh start, Jess has moved to the beautiful Devon seaside town of Pennycombe Bay. However, things aren't turning out exactly as she hoped. She enjoys her new job at the local pet shop but feels like she's treading on eggshells living with her moody cousin Ruth.

When she meets handsome stranger, Nick, on the beach, she thinks she's made a new friend. Or perhaps something more... Although her hopes of romance are quickly dashed when she finds out he's seeing another woman. But with faithful dog Prudence by her side, Jess is determined to become more involved in the local community.

Can Jess make Pennycombe feel like home?

Another wonderful story featuring some fabulous pets, from Sheila Norton.

I knew as I started it I would be in for a treat.  After all Jess not only talks to Pru her dog all the time, she imagines Pru's answers too.

To start with Jess is rather lacking in confidence,  but as the story progresses,  she really does grow. 

I loved her pets as therapy volunteering work, her attempts to help her cousin Ruth with a problem,  and Jess becoming a vital part of the Pennycombe Bay community. 

Pru isn't the only fabulous animal,  there are a whole host of others featured too. There is also a multitude of sub plots which get you really involved with this lovely local community. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this,  and just wish I had a dog like Pru myself.

Thank you to Netgalley and Ebury for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
