ABOUT THIS BOOK
A dog’s life is just what Maddy needs.
Maddy Young thought she had it all.
Swanky city apartment? – yep. Fancy car? sorted. High-flying career? – tick.
Even if she’s lost most of her friends because of spending all her time at work, and can’t remember when she last had fun, it’s worth it.
Until she’s suddenly made redundant. Now she’s 37, jobless, and after the breakup with the former love of her life, unhappily single.
Enter Maddy’s childhood friend, Beth, the owner of Growlers, the doggy daycare centre at Giddywell Grange, on a mission to make Maddy see there’s more to life than work.
Soon, Maddy is swapping spreadsheets for volunteer duty at the library, daily Starbucks for cups of tea with elderly neighbours, and her Prada handbag for doggy poo bags… And with Beth’s gorgeous brother, Alex, back from the States, Maddy starts to think that Giddywell Grange might just be her happy place.
But when her old life – and her old boyfriend - comes calling, will Maddy go back to the job she loved so much? Or will she discover that the key to happiness lies in making others happy?
An enjoyable read that gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling, ESCAPE TO GIDDYWELL GRANGE by Kim Nash is the perfect read to curl up with on the couch and relax.
Maddy Young dedicated her entire life to her career so when she finds out she is being made redundant instead of getting a promotion, it throws her world upside down. What on earth is she going to do now? And it isn't long before Maddy realises that she has neglected her mother, her childhood home, and her friends as she has built her career, so reconnecting seems to be somewhere to start. As Maddy renews her relationship with her best friend Beth, she begins to see how kind and giving Beth really is as well as hardworking with her own doggy daycare business. Taking a leaf out of Beth's book, Maddy soon finds herself involved in her childhood community of Giddywell Grange and there may even be a whiff of romance in the air too. But when the past comes calling, will Maddy return to the familiar rather than the new life she is only just beginning to carve out for herself? And is it ever possible to move on from the heartache that has gone before?
An engaging story with some loveable characters (and dogs!), ESCAPE TO GIDDYWELL GRANGE by Kim Nash makes you think about how quickly one's life can change and how we all may cope with the repercussions. Maddy is a little lost and while at times I did want to shake some sense into her, the more I got to know her, the more I wanted to protect her, and hoped that she would take some chances on her future. The setting is beautifully depicted as I now know is a signature style of this talented author, and there is truly never a dull moment in this moving story of fresh starts and new horizons.
ESCAPE TO GIDDYWELL GRANGE by Kim Nash is a wonderful read, sure to please fiction fans everywhere, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
