One Hot Country Summer Paperback
by Rebecca Shaw
Part of the Barleybridge series
In the middle of a sultry summer heatwave, the inhabitants of Barleybridge find love, conflict and much more...When Kate worked at the Barleybridge practice, she had thought herself in love with Scott.
But that was years ago and she is over him now - or so she thinks.
When she returns to the practice, she is alarmed to discover that suddenly, yet again, she is completely besotted with him.
Some things at the practice have changed: there's a new vet, Virginia, who seems to go out of her way to criticise and upset Kate, not to mention upsetting the clients.
But Virginia is not all she seems. Scott, very much in love with his wife Zoe, hates the idea that they have not yet had a second child.
Convinced that the fault is not his, he refuses to seek help.
The ensuing rows with Zoe drive a wedge between them.
Will he look to someone else for comfort? Kate hopes that he might...

Review by susanpenter
The sad things about this book is it seems to have an air of completion, when I finished the fourth book in the series it was almost like you knew there would be another to follow - unless that was just because it was sat waiting to be read. Rebecca Shaw did well to introduce the character of Virginia and bring her up to speed with the rest. I really hope there is a new book, perhaps after a time gap when Kate has completed her studies and come back to Barleybridge, maybe ther has been a tragedy to change one of the happy couplings - not Scott and Zoe too obvious...
