#Review ~ Love Blossoms at Puddleduck Farm by Della Galton #Romance @DellaGalton @rararesources

Love Blossoms at Puddleduck Farm

How can life be too busy for love?

Phoebe Dashwood is living the dream. She’s running her own successful vet practice, Puddleduck Vets, alongside her grandmother’s animal sanctuary.

She’s also dating the gorgeous, yet slightly broken Rufus Holt, the most eligible bachelor in the New Forest.

So why isn’t she blissfully happy?

Both Phoebe and Rufus are consumed 24/7 by their own commitments. Their relationship is always last on the list.

Phoebe juggles quirky, yet demanding clients and their pets whilst widowed Rufus is consumed by his anxieties, responsibilities of fatherhood and the unenviable tasks of being a Lord in waiting with a huge estate to manage.

Phoebe knows that when you’re a vet, there isn’t always a happy ending. But will there be a happy ending for Phoebe, Rufus and everyone else at Puddleduck Farm?
Is it ever really possible to have it all?

My Review:

Love Blossoms at Puddleduck Farm is the third book, and while it could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the series is order. Phoebe and Rufus are having a rough go at things. Both are extremely busy, rarely eking out anytime for one another. Add in a meddling maid and old-fashioned thinking, and Phoebe has her work cut out for her. And that's what this relationship seems to be full of - work. Several passages made my eyes a bit leaky as I really felt Phoebe was too hard on herself. 

This book in the series was a bit darker and less lighthearted than the previous two. I loved it just as much but it was different. I loved how the author wrote a realistic relationship between Phoebe and Rufus. Not all relationships are smooth or the fairytale dream. 

Della Galton did a great job creating this world, setting it up, and developing the characters. The side stories involving Maggie and Eddie, Tory and Harrison, and Sam and Judy added such great elements to the story. There are several happily-ever-afters in Love Blossoms at Puddleduck Farm and I loved every single one of them.

I was provided a copy of this book to read.
