Trust Me, I'm A Vet

I have been in what I can only refer to as a reading depression lately. I am reading but in the slowest tempo you can imagine and very sporadic. I think my trying to get as many projects finished as possible in 2012 with my handwork (see my other blog) has affected my reading lately. I did however finish a fun book and can finally share this one with you.

It is Trust Me, I'm A Vet by Cathy Woodman. This modern day James Harriot is the young woman Maz Harwood from London who goes to the country town of Talyton St. George to fill in for school friend Emma who goes on a long term break from her small animal practice. What she does not tell Maz is that the practice is in trouble financially after warning her about a fierce rivalry with the Talyton Manor Vets owned by the Fox-Giffords. Will Maz be able to keep the practice afloat until Emma returns and find a sense of belonging in this country setting? 

I am a long time fan of James Harriot and perhaps that is why I could not resist this book. It was enjoyable and made me long to give a little kiss on the head of the cats and dogs along with Maz. 

Happy reading!

Is this a Kindle book of regular. I am reading a book Bill brought over now. It is Hidden Summitt by Robyn Carr. It is a series and this is book one. They are also on the Nook but he bought two of them.
Hope you get to read more now.
The one you just read is definitely your kind of book.
Love you, Mom

Hello Heidi, thanks you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I haven't read this book about a vet's practice (I must look our for it) but have read several of the Rebecca Shaw novels about a vet's surgery in the village of Barley Bridge:)

I love James Harriot so this book sounds like it would be one I would enjoy. Actually any story with animals in it I love so I will have to get out my Nook and look for it :) Funny I haven't been doing alot of reading lately either...stitching to much maybe?...and I just pulled out Gone With the Wind. I love this book and haven't read it in about 20 some years so it is like sitting down with an old friend. Hugs from CA. my friend.

Sounds like a fun read! I am having the opposite problem you are - I am reading too much (and hence, staying up too late.)

This sounds like a good one. I love All Creatures. I have the same problem if I'm reading a lot I don't sew as much and vice versa. Right now it's reading for me. I'm into C.S.Lewis right now and Oxford.
