Book Review ~ Coming Home to Puddleduck Farm by Della Galton ~ @DellaGalton @rararesources


About Coming Home to Puddleduck Farm:

When your heart's broken, all roads lead home...

London City Vet, Phoebe Dashwood, finds her partner Hugh and their boss in a passionate clinch beneath the mistletoe at their works Christmas party.

Heartbroken, she bolts to the New Forest, her childhood home to regroup and soul search.

Being home gives Phoebe the chance to reconnect with friends and family and especially with her fiercely independent gran, widower Maggie Crowther, owner of Puddleduck Farm, and makeshift animal shelter New Forest Neddies.

Deciding not to return to London, Phoebe hunts for work locally, hoping she can also help Maggie, who’s clearly swamped and not coping. But will Maggie accept Phoebe’s help?

Her quest is hampered by stubborn grandmothers, meddling mums, an attractive childhood friend, a real-life Lord, a remorseful ex, and a best friend who’s determined to play matchmaker.

Can Phoebe find happiness professionally and personally in the place she calls home, surrounded by those she loves or does fate have other plans for Phoebe?

My Review:

Sometimes, the only way to heal is to go home. Phoebe learns that the hard way after finding her boyfriend Hugh and their boss Melissa in a compromising position at a holiday party. She flees London and heads to her parents' home in Goshill to try and make sense of what she saw. Hugh makes it pretty easy to figure things out after a heartbreaking bombshell turns Phoebe's world upside down. 

Phoebe opts to remain at home, letting her life in London go, in order to start over. I really being part of Phoebe's journey as she navigates the next phase of her life. The author did a great job creating this world, setting it up, and developing the characters. I had fun reading about strong grandmas, supportive parents, and silly animals. I look forward to the next book.

I was provided a copy of this book.
