Christmas at the Dog & Duck by Jill Steeples

Thanks again to @Aria_Fiction for the opportunity to review another of their books from over on @NetGalley. This time by @jillesteeples #ChristmasRead


A perfect, feel-good romantic novel to curl up with this Christmas. A story of new beginnings, love and friendship. Perfect for the fans of Jenny Colgan and Lucy Diamond.

Ellie Browne has left behind her high-flying job in London to return to the charming Buckinghamshire village of Little Leyton. Working shifts at The Dog and Duck and running her own doggy-day-care business, Ellie’s looking for a much simpler way of life and a good old fashioned Christmas.

But Little Leyton’s landscape is changing; Johnny Tay, Ellie’s ex, wants to pick up where they left off; sultry property developer Max Golding, has moved into the village and is ruffling feathers; and rumour has it that the pub, which holds a special place in Ellie’s heart, might be sold. Suddenly, life’s looking a whole lot more complicated…

Can Ellie juggle her emotions and commitments in time to celebrate Christmas?


I loved the cover of this book as soon as I saw it, its not very often one sees a black cover that looks nice and Christmassy too. 

This was a comfortable read with a nice little village pub. The characters were a good bunch and the story had a feel good vibe to it. There was nothing in this book that could upset anyone whatsoever. I found it to be a quick read and enjoyable throughout

I rate this book 5/5
