“I've always said if I could live anywhere I would love to live on a farm. Perhaps its the simplicity of life that happens there. No hustle and bustle. Where life simply happens moment by moment and it's never dull. In the latest novel that has completely captivated me in a virtual way, Country Loving by Cathy Woodman, we arrive just in time. Busy accountant Stephanie or Stevie as she is known to close family and friends receives an urgent phone call from Cecil, a man who's been helping to run the family farm in London, Nettlebed Farm.

Stevie realizes the urgency of the call and is more concerned with the reasons why her father never bothered to call her and let her know he had had a stroke. Knowing that if she doesn't do something her father might face arrest due to animal neglect and possibly lose the family farm. Ever since her mother died, she hasn't maintained contact with her father as often as she should have and plans a trip home with her boyfriend Nick. Nick has other plans in mind by helping Stevie out on the farm. He is hoping after dating her for the last 18 months and proposing to her, she might in fact say yes and they can set a date for the wedding.
Only the more time Stevie spends on the farm, the more she comes to realize that Nick is just not the man for her to settle down with. He is looking more for the perfect image of what marriage and all that goes with it looks like. She just wants to go back to more simple times and finds that spending time with the cows on the farm that desperately need her is just what the doctor ordered. However she can't help but wonder if Leo, the new vet in town is just what she needs to help mend her heart. She just needs to convince her father to let her help to find a way to keep from losing the family farm, settle old grudges between the neighbors and find love wherever that may take her.
I received Country Loving by Cathy Woodman compliments of Arrow Books and TLC Book Tours for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed are strictly my own. I absolutely LOVED this book because deep down inside I am a firm believer I am a "country girl!" I love the softness that comes from the descriptions of the cows as Stevie tends to each of them with their own unique personalities. When the herd escapes the pasture and heads to town on a wild binge, you know you are in for wonderful journey. This one will grab at your heart strings and keep you definitely wanting more. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion. I can't wait for the next novel which will be due on next year. Until then pick this one up and prepared to definitely be hooked in the process.
