#Review: The Vets at Hope Green: Part 3: Too Close To Home by Sheila Norton @NortonSheilaann @EburyPublishing


PART THREE of a serialised novel – a heartwarming and inspiring story about living the simple life and the joy of animals.

Things are finally starting to look up for Sam – a chance at her dream job as a vet, and a new friend (who is a huge animal lover himself – a very important detail!) What more could she ask for?

But something is eating away at her: her boss Joe is acting strangely around her – he’s definitely hiding something. And having dreamed of being a vet for so long, she cannot afford to put a foot wrong.

When a call to tend to a sick pony comes into the practice, it all strikes too close to home for Sam and Joe. The odds are stacked against her, and she risks losing everything…

Note: this is part three of a four-part serialised novel. The full length paperback will be available in June.


Things are starting to come together in this penultimate installment of The Vets at Hope Green. Sam settles into the village and her new job and gets over quite a personal scare. Her relationships in the village grow as she forms firm friendships and gets to know more of the residents.

She gets a visit from an old friend from London who it turns out isn’t so nice and could do with a bit of a lesson in what a friend is and how a friend acts and one of her new friendships gets a bit complicated.

She also learns more about her boss Joe and why he’s not exactly the friendliest person to be around, could this be the turning point for a friendship between them?

The story continues with the theme of enforcing just how important animals are for human healing and support, it has a great feel-good vibe and the novella can be easily read in about an hour so a nice quick afternoon read.

Ending on a whopper of a cliff hanger I can’t wait to see what’s in store with the final installment.

A huge thanks to Sheila Norton and Ebury Digital for the eARC in return for my honest review.
