Winter at the Dog & Duck by Jill Steeples
 The Dog and Duck Series, 1

Can a winter affair become a love to last a lifetime?

Ellie Browne has left behind her high-flying job in London to return to the charming village of Little Leyton. Working at The Dog and Duck pub and running her own doggy-day-care business, Ellie's looking for a simpler way of life in this idyllic English setting.

But Little Leyton's landscape is changing; Johnny Tay, Ellie's ex, wants to pick up where they left off; sultry property developer Max Golding has moved into the village and is ruffling feathers; and rumour has it that the pub, which holds a special place in Ellie's heart, might be sold. Suddenly, life's looking a whole lot more complicated...

Can Ellie overcome all the challenges to finally find her one true love?

A perfect, feel-good romantic novel to curl up with this winter.

This book was previously published as Christmas at The Dog & Duck.
