A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow

What it’s about?
It’s time for the wedding we’ve all been waiting for…
Life at Hedgehog Hollow is never dull, although Samantha hopes that the new year ahead will be a little less chaotic as she prepares to marry the love of her life, Josh. But disaster strikes when she checks the rescue centre’s bank account after the festive season and discovers it has been emptied.
Who would do such a thing, and why? With the future of Hedgehog Hollow now in jeopardy,
planning a wedding has lost its shine.
Phoebe is desperate to escape the shadow of her family, infamously known for their attacks on
Samantha’s beloved rescue centre. Could the kindness of the Hedgehog Hollow team be the chance she needs for a fresh start, or will her family’s secrets continue to drag her back?
What I think:
I love Jessica Redland books and Hedgehog Hollow is one of my favourite series.
The last book in the series ended with the shocking cliffhanger that left the future of the rescue centre in peril and this book picks up the story where it left off.
Samantha amd Josh are planning their wedding, running the rescue centre and the veterinary practice and continuing to rebuild their relationships with their complicated families.
When the rescue centre bank account is emptied Sam is facing a crisis that will impact her ability to rescue hogs at one of their busiest times of the year. When it is revealed that volunteer book keeper, Phoebe, is related to the hideous Grimes whose grudge against Samantha has led to previous criminal damage and prison sentences, it seems clear that Phoebe is behind the theft. But is she?
Redland is so good and blending lighthearted humour and heart-rending stories. Phoebe’s story is a real tear jerker and utterly heart breaking. Criminality, drugs, child abuse – it doesn’t sound like the topic for a.book.wotj such a pretty cover, but believe me when I say it all comes together so well. Phoebe has become one of my favourite characters in the series and I was rooting for her all the way.
Hedgehog Hollow rescues more than just our spikey friends. It’s fast becoming a focal point for the community and a place where people can find the time and space they need to recover. Samantha just needs to remember to look after herself sometimes too.
This is a great installment in the series. I honestly couldn’t put it down. The characters are wonderful and I love the hedgehog info.
Jessica Redland has created something really special with Hedgehog Hollow. I have loved the whole series so far and will definitely be reading the next book when it’s published.
