    1. Out of all three novellas so far this is definitely my favourite i loved it!!

The book center's around Ellie who has recently lost her business a restaurant and is looking after her aunts dog Maurice while shes incapacitated with a broken foot, anyway Cinders Ellies beloved cat decides to run off and while looking for him she stumbles into Daniel new owner of the chestn [...]

    2. Oh my, what a sweet short story! I so want to read Jo's "The Oyster Catcher", and it's for sure my next PB read but I still have few books to read for my upcoming blog tours, and so I thought that I treat myself to this little gem. OK, I'm blabbing, aren't I?I was immediately sucked into this sweet, charming story about Ellie moving shortly to the countryside, just to babysit her Aunt's dog and house, and bringing with herself her cat and memories of her beloved restaurant destroyed in fire.

    3. At just 81 pages, this novella is short and sweet with loveable characters, both human and animal.That’s not to say that it is perfect. As it is so short, there really wasn’t much development and the plot overall was extremely predictable but I think that’s all part of the charm of this kind of story, and besides the cover gives a lot away before you’ve even started reading.The writing style was simplistic but suited the story well so I’m looking forward to reading Jo Thomas’ novel T [...]

    4. I started this story as soon as I finished The Oyster Catcher, also by Jo Thomas.

Suspicion of newcomers is therefore entirely natural in small knit communities, an idea apparent in both of T [...]

    5. A short story by Jo Thomas - a lovely little read for an autumnal evening while snuggled in an armchair. Some delicious descriptions that delight the senses coupled with a warm narrative.

    6. Loved this short storyI have enjoyed everything I have read by Jo Thomas and this lovely little story is no exception. Such a heartwarming story, perfect for this time of year.
