    One thought on “It's a Vet's Life”

    1. I just love these! Maz, Emma and company always have such true-to-life experiences. I love reading about the vet practice, even the disasters. It's great that the author showcases real life, the good and the bad, instead of everyone living in a perfect world. Just about the time you realize what's coming, and can't believe the author actually went there, she does! I understand the entire series covers other townfolk and isn't limited only to the Otter House crew, but I think the books that focus [...]

    2. Cathy Woodman’s Talyton St George series has become a firm favourite with me – there have been three previous novels set in the small village, and the fourth It’s A Vet’s Life is the most recent. It’s the third (of the four) to feature Maz Harwood and all at Otter House Vets and it’s rather like coming home and putting on your favourite slippers and dressing gown. It’s one of the cosiest book series around at the moment, and I love the comfort that comes with knowing who the charac [...]

    3. chicklitaholic/20When I was younger, growing up in the countryside, I always wanted to be a vet. I love animals and constantly begged my mum and dad for a pet. Sadly one never came and my dream of being a vet quickly diminished when I realised I can't handle the sight of blood. My love of animals, however has continued, and upon finding a set of books about, you guessed it, a vet living in the countryside, I just could not pass up on reading them. While It's A Vets Life is part of a series of bo [...]

    4. This book was sent to me for our Christmas 2011 book competition. The cover of this book is still in keeping with the style of the previous three books by Cathy Woodman but it has got the Christmas touch which stands out among the shelves, with a snowy setting and the sparkly snow flakes on the cover it is in true fitting for this time of year.I really enjoyed the previous two books and so when I heard there was a third instalment based in the lovely fictional village of Talyton St George I coul [...]

    5. “It’s a vet’s life” is the fourth book which is set in the fictional market town of Talyton St George in East Devon. Like the 1st and 2nd books in this series, this book carries on the story of Maz and Alex – the third book was not their story so me reading this one before number 3 didn’t matter.It is two years since the birth of their baby boy and when Maz and Alex decide to set a date for their Christmas wedding. Although they have a good few months to organise the Talyton St Georg [...]

    6. As I haven't read the previous novels in this series, I must admit that I struggled a bit this one as I found the sheer number of different characters overwhelming. It was hard to keep straight in my head who everyone was and I kept having to flick back to earlier pages to find out what I could about them.I also found the book oddly superficial. It deals with some very dark subjects, but seems to use them as mere plot devices, rather than actually examining them closely and seeing how they effec [...]

    7. This wasn't what I expected. I was hoping for a fluffy Xmas novel and it was fluffy all right but not Xmassy at all.It took me quite a while to get into the story because I needed to get accustomed with the many characters and also, because, let's face it, I don't care all that much for vets, but in the end it was a rather pleasant read if very predictable.I don't think I'll be reading the other books in the series though.

    8. This was my favourite book in the series. yes, its shocking in the middle, but very well written and I read the majority of the book in 1 sitting over 4 hours I just couldn't put it down. The book also deals with issues which probably occur in veterinary practices every day. I laughed and cried and cried some more have a box of tissues handy, you'll need them! Best book so far and cannot wait to read the next.

    9. I loved the previous books in this series so much, and I was super excited when this one came out. But something about it just wasn't right. The story is exciting and sad, but the writing style has become very present tense conversational and it's slightly annoying. That said, it's a good book and I'm already looking forward to Woodman's next book.

    10. I wasn't so keen on this instalment in the vet's series by Cathy Woodman. I liked the pieces about the animals, but the rift between Alex and Maz seemed to be very contrived in order to create tension. Having said that, Woodman writes very accurately the feelings of desperation as a relationship goes bad, but it did make for a very depressing book at times.

    11. Maz Harwood is engaged to Alex Fox-Gillford they have a son George (21 months). They are both vets and lead very busy lives, Maz hardly sees Alex. They make a date for there wedding Maz is left with the preperations, but has Alex changed his mind?I really enjoyed this book I would definetely recommend.

    12. Wow!! What can I say, a bit of a rollercoasted!! Another great book by Cathy Woodman! I find myself heading down south and feel like a part of Talyton when I'm reading these books.

    13. Really enjoying this series although a bit more of a shocking story line compared to the previous novels!

    14. At first I was not sure about this book, first one by this author that I have read. Maybe because I am a retired Vet Nurse! Once I had got into it I enjoyed the book and will try another.

    15. Nice, easy flowing book - easily read in a day or so. Didn't realise it was part of a series though, so it was fine to read it without knowledge of characters etc

    16. I've found a new favourite author- I love this vet series. I have the next one packed ready for my holiday.
