This cute novella, Wellies and Westies, first attracted me because my family has a Westie for a pet. I love this breed of dog, and if I find a book with the word Westie in the title... I'm going to read it! The second reason why I picked the book up? It takes place in England, a dream destination of mine. Thus, I was sold the second I laid eyes on the book cover. (Yes, I certainly did judge a book by its cover.) Cat Palmer finds herself in a jobless muddle when her position at the local children's nursery flatlines. With some help from her friends, she ventures out into another type of business -- one where she's the boss. She loves dogs, so why not start up a dog business? Another thing I liked? Perhaps this is just the nerd in me, but one of the characters is an illustrator / graphic designer, as I am myself. I related so well to said character, especially in his descriptions of the job. I thought it fit very well within the pages of the story -- like I said, I only mentioned this because, well, I'm geeky and I found another geek to relate to. CONS: As a note to the discerning reader, I want to mention that there are a couple instances of vulgar language used in the story. Other than that, there is a scene or two that might cause a blush from the reader (due to romantic inclinations), but the story didn't go too far. Wellies and Westies from the Primrose Terrace series is funny, witty, a lot of fun to read, and filled with new furry friends.
