City girl Amanda has literally escaped London and fled to the wilds of Yorkshire. Ok, wilds might be a slight exaggeration, but hey sometimes life in an English village can often be a little like living in a jungle. An eccentric and very pretty jungle, but a jungle nevertheless.
She is looking for a completely different kind of lifestyle. Not the restrictive mapped out lifestyle her parents insist she lead. She more or less stumbles over the attractive vet next door, who doesn’t think much of her or her strange shop. Once an outsider always an outsider.
The village women make it their personal goal to play matchmaker for Ben and Amanda. They are really subtle at it as well, not. Luckily the two of them don’t seem to mind the meddling very much.
The Chic Boutique is a charming tale of mistakes, regret and believing in new beginnings. Happiness isn’t always being the most powerful with the most money and living in an apartment overlooking the epicentre of a pulsing city. Sometimes happiness is finding inner peace, regardless of whether it is in city or in a quaint village.
This story is about Amanda asserting herself, taking charge and living a life she wants, as opposed to living one someone else thinks she should be satisfied with. Fortunately for her she happens to find two balls of fluff and a strong shoulder to lean on, as she stumbles (boy does she stumble a lot) her way to independence/
Dove mixes the oddity of village life with memorable characters and budding romance to create a very enjoyable read.
