Kate arrives at Barleybridge Veterinary Practice on her first day as the new receptionist. The hills rise almost immediately from the edge of the car park, dotted all over the slopes are sheep grazing. Turning round she can see the town which has now crept up the foothills making the practice the last bit of civilisation before the hills. The setting is idyllic. Kate quickly gets to know the other staff and becomes engrossed in the work and drawn into their lives and those of the animals and their owners. She knows to have a bucket of water at the ready when Adolf the Rottweiller has an appointment and to have soap and spare clothes waiting when her boss Scott is called out to the Parsons's filthy farm. But Kate has a big decision to make. Should she give up her faithful boyfriend Adam and train as a vet or should she be content to work in the practice as a receptionist? She confides in Scott because, although he is a bit of a womaniser, it is obvious that he is completely devoted to the animals and his work.
Tender, funny and full of the warmth that has made the Turnham Malpas novels into bestsellers, this first Barleybridge novel is a sure winner.

This first of a new series of books by the bestselling author of the Turnham Malpas novels is set in a Dorset village where 19-year-old Kate begins her working life as the new receptionist at a veterinary practice. In reality she'd much rather be a vet herself. She befriends all the staff, becomes engrossed in her work and gets to know all the regular clients and their pets. But always in the back of her mind is the thought that she should finish with her oppressive boyfriend Adam and return to college to train as a vet. And seeking advice from Scott, the good-looking Australian vet, is certainly not going to work in Adam's favour. Kate quickly takes control of her own life once she realises she'll only ever have the one chance. This is a very tender and warm-hearted novel, which establishes a collection of enchanting characters, sure to be as popular as the Turnham Malpas books.Book Description:
The first in a brilliant new series of novels set in a veterinary practice on the outskirts of a Dorset town by the bestselling author of the Turnham Malpas novels.
