A Cosy Christmas with the Village Vet by Eliza J Scott


It’s the most magical time of the year! Will Brogan and Nick find the happiness they crave so they can celebrate the festive season?

Christmas has always been a special time for Brogan, especially since her move to her grandparents’ smallholding. Set near the picturesque village of Lytell Stangdale in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors, it’s an idyllic location. But with the loss of her beloved grandparents still raw, she’s struggling to find her festive spirit.

Talked into going to a wedding by her friends, Brogan finds herself sitting next to a rather handsome stranger. Thinking she’ll never seen him again, she dusts off her flirting skills and lets her fun-loving side loose.

Newly single Nick Heston was dreading going to his friend’s wedding. But a chance encounter with a woman with captivating green and eyes makes him think otherwise. He’s gutted when she disappears without leaving any way for him to contact her.

Telling himself he needs a break from relationships, Nick intends to focus all his attention on his job as a vet at a new practice. It proves easier said than done; he just can’t get Brogan out of his mind.

Meanwhile, Brogan’s been looking forward to starting her new job as a vet nurse at the new local practice.

On their first day at Danskelfe Veterinary Surgery, both are stunned when they come face-to- face once more – something Nick seems very happy about, but Brogan’s not so sure. Despite her reluctance, it would seem fate is keen to push them together, and Brogan finds her feelings for Nick growing. As for Nick, the more he gets to know Brogan, the more he finds himself falling for her.

Just when their romance looks ready to bloom, something or someone seems to get in its way.

Will Christmas work its magic? Or are Brogan and Nick destined to be nothing more than a brief encounter?

Why not join Brogan and Nick, together with their canine companions Wilf and Maudie – and all the familiar Life on the Moors characters – for a heartwarming, festive trip to the moors?




I love Eliza J Scott’s books and will admit I am biased in this review, because I love this series and all the books I have read by her and I adore her writing.

This is the eighth book in the series, but this can definitely be read as a stand-alone, you don’t need to have read any of the previous books (I mean you should because they’re so lovely, but not required) like most of Eliza’s leading ladies I loved Brogan so much, she’s just so relatable and gorgeous.

Then we have Nick, who is almost as great as Brogan , but put them together and it’s such a great pairing, now if only they could both see that ! They are just so full of love and kindness. Their are a couple of furry supporting characters who are just as fabulous, it’s a story filled with hope, love, friendship and the best community spirit.

Overall this is another fabulous contribution to the Life on the Moors series, full of festive delights, snow, Christmas tradition and heartwarming romance. If you’re looking for the perfect seasonal read full of warmth, look no further than this or any of the books in the series.

Thanks to Eliza J Scott and Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to enjoy and take part in the blog tour for this gorgeous story. For full disclosure I was given a free ebook in return for a voluntary and honest review, all opinions are my own and freely given.
