Creature Comforts by Trisha Ashley

A review of Creature Comforts by Trisha Ashley - Five**


Fall in back in love with life in this gripping read about fate and second chances.
The eagerly awaited new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author.
Izzy has broken off her engagement to her feckless fiancĂ©e Kieran and returned to her childhood home – the sleepy village of Halfhidden.

She soon realizes that life in the village is anything but peaceful – for one thing she’s living with her mad aunt Debo and her pack of dogs, and for another, Izzy has a lot of unanswered questions.

When she was a teenager, Izzy was involved in a terrible accident, involving various inhabitants of Halfhidden. As she sets out to discover what actually happened on the night of the accident, she realizes that her painful past is actually standing in the way of her future happiness. So when a handsome stranger comes to Halfhidden will she let love back into her life?


I started this book yesterday and have just finished it. I have always loved Trisha's books about Sticklepond and to read a book about a close village called Halfhidden was wonderful!

The story revolves around Izzy and Rufus. They have an awful lot of baggage from their backgrounds and the love story takes almost second place as they resolve all the issues before allowing themselves the freedom of loving each other.

As usual, there are village shenanigans, larger than life characters - and some very obnoxious people! I love the way Trisha describes village life, with everything revolving around a few important places - the pub, the spring and the Dog Rescue.

The dogs are wonderfully described and I so want a Babybelle! There is so much going on with the dogs and the humans I was worried I'd lose track of the plot, but Trisha keeps the reader fully informed and I raced through the book! It was one of those books that you are desperate to know what the ending is, but don't want it to end at the same time.

Heavens knows what I'll read now - my head is full of dreams, angels and large, hairy dogs!
