Katie Fforde meets James Herriot in these two gorgeous countryside romances Trust Me I'm a Vet When city vet Maz Harwood runs away from her disastrous love life in London to work at Otter House Vets in Talyton St George, Devonsire, she is hoping that she will find some peace and quiet. But there is precious little peace to be had at the Otter House. What with a comatose hamster, bowel-troubled dogs, and prize-winning cats. But her patients are the least of her worries, as she also has to contend with a stubborn neighbour who's threatening to sue over an overzealous fur cut, and the distracting presence Alex Fox Gifford, the dashing son of the Otter House vets' main competitor. The Sweetest Thing After a messy divorce, Jennie Copeland is determined to live life on her own terms, and so she moves herself and her three children into a ramshackle house on the outskirts of Talyton St George, where she intends to set up her own cake-baking business. Although it sounds idyllic, in practice, Jennie can't help wondering whether neighbouring farmer Guy Barnes was right when he predicted she wouldn't last the year. But she's determined to stick it out, if only just to annoy him.

In the 1920s, the Campbells move west to the isolated wilderness of northern Alberta to begin a new life of homesteading. With the depression engulfing Canada and the United States, the family struggles with poverty and staying alive under harsh conditions. A neighboring family of Indian ancestry provides needed food and advice. For little Jimmy, this friendship introduces him to wildlife lore and a respect for all the natural kingdom. Jimmy comes to know tragedy and hardship. The family's shanty burns to the ground in mid-winter. Dad suffers from personal depression and suicidal thoughts. Mum must leave the family for medical treatment for weeks at a time. Jimmy is thought to be near death and is rushed to a remote hospital by a trapper with a dogsled. Yet there are times of delight and joy: catching fish, eating an apple, riding a bike up and down mountains, listening to animals in the woods, skinny dipping. He is shocked and awed by the beauty of the mountains. Books and the world outside of his settlement begin to fascinate him. When he is a teenager, the family leaves their home and debts and moves farther west to ranch country in the mountains of British Columbia. Jim is devastated to learn that he was a bastard child adopted by his parents. He perseveres with his studies and odd jobs. He is encouraged by teachers who see his potential, and he easily graduates first in his high school class. Jim leaves with plans to join the military as a Royal Canadian Air Force pilot in World War II. A young person reading this novel should gain an appreciation of factors influencing a youth's life: family, society, environment, government. Even though roads seem insurmountable, people can shape their own lives in marvelous ways.

This is the third novel based around the character of D.C.I Steven Price by Joseph and Linda Pye. It is the fourth book to be published in eighteen months by the couple who only met in 2008. Joseph has had the stories in his head for a long while and has even written them in the past although never got them published. Linda writes the female parts and edits the books and they work together well as a team. The first three books are now in the local library and are being well received by customers as they are often out on loan. The accompanying photo was taken in Queensland, Australia, where the couple spent five weeks visiting family, having a 'mock up' wedding so that Joseph's sister Marilyn could be there as she couldn't make the real one later in the year, her husband Derek, is a marriage celebrant over there. We made many good friends during out time over there and miss them all lots as we do our family and friends that we don't see so often.
