Chasing Dreams of Hedgehog Hollow
By Jessica Redland
What it’s about?
Samantha has a secret. Returning home from her dream honeymoon to the normality of running
her beloved Hedgehog Hollow rescue centre, she’s ready for the next chapter of her life with Josh.
Or is she? Samantha is hiding something which could forever change the dreams they shared and bring their happy ever after crashing to the ground.
Lauren has given up on love. Twenty-six years ago the love of her life, Shaun, left her a note and was never seen again. Two painful divorces later she still can’t face opening up to anyone. But little does Lauren know that the closure she’s dreamt of for all these years may be closer than she thinks, and perhaps the only way to let new love in is to forgive and forget.
Samantha and Lauren will need the love and support from the Hedgehog Hollow family more than ever. After all, some dreams are worth chasing…
What I think:
I am so fond of this series.
I’ve been a part of the blog tour for each book so far and thoroughly enjoyed every one. One thing I particularly like is that while there us a central story each book develops the world of Hedgehog Hollow and explores more of the characters we have met along the way.
Samantha and Josh’s story continues to develop as they head off on their honeymoon and make some bug decisions about their future.
The hedgehogs and hoglets continue to come and go at Hedgehog Hollow.
But the real star of this book is Lauren – Josh’s aunt and the woman that introduced Sammie and Josh.
Lauren is at a cross roads. Fancy redundancy from a job she loves and disappointment in her love life she is unsure what to do next.
Lauren begins to reflect in her past relationships – two very different failed marriages – and the impact they have had on her.
This is a book about hope and dreams and taking opportunities. As always, Jessica Redland explores sensitive subjects with care and compassion and humour. The characters are complex and relatable. There’s laughter and tear along the way.
This is a book that you simply won’t put down.
As always with the Hedgehog Hollow books it works as a standalone. But I do recommend the whole series as the whole journey so far has been fantastic.
