Guest Review: Primrose Park by Christie Barlow

The gorgeous new book in the heartwarming and bestselling Love Heart Lane series!

Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what

Vet Molly has always been career driven and focussed on caring for her animals, but when she meets a gorgeous Mystery Man at a conference and their connection is off the charts, well, one night off work won’t hurt anyone…except the next morning he’s vanished and all Molly knows about him is his first name.

Three months later, back in Love Heart Lane, everyone loves the story of Molly's amazing one-night stand.  It's so unlike her! But when Mystery Man turns up walking his dog through Primrose Park and their night together seems to mean nothing to him, Molly needs her friends and neighbours more than ever. And especially when she’s left with the most unexpected of surprises…

Review: This is book 6 in the Love Heart Lane series from Christie Barlow. I have read all of the books in this series, set in the Scottish highland village of Heartcross, and have been looking forward to reading this new addition and catching up with some familiar faces. Although there are always recurring characters in these books, each, including this one, can be read as a standalone. As with the rest of the series, this book has a bright, attractive cover that invites the reader into its pages.

This story centres on vet Molly McKendrick, who lives in Glenshiel, the town neighbouring Heartcross. While attending a conference on dog training, she meets a man to whom she has an immediate attraction that proves to be mutual. After a somewhat passionate evening together, she finds that he has suddenly and completely disappeared. All she knows about him is that he is called Cam and he is a dentist; she can find no trace of him. Three months later, when exercising her dog in local Primrose Park, she bumps into Cam, but he pretends not to remember her and is quite disagreeable. As time goes on, Molly continues to meet Cam from time to time, keen to discuss their evening together. She also becomes quite involved in the Heartcross community and Primrose Park in particular. Although she and Cam have shared interests, can she see a future with this man?

I very much enjoyed this book. It was nice to meet up with some familiar characters from previous stories in this series. There are also a few new people in addition to Molly and Cam, but some of them are not at all pleasant. Molly was a lovely person, but Cam was a little unpredictable, although why came to light as the story progressed. In addition to the humans, there is a loveable little dog in the story, loyal but fierce when the situation demands. I’m sure that other readers will enjoy this book as much as I did and be keen to catch up with the rest of the series if they haven’t already done so.
