synopsis of a witch

Best friends Scarlett and Shannon spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur, running their dog business together. Scarlett’s intensive training course, Ruff Love, fixes owners as much as their pets, while Shannon spends her days walking spoiled pooches.

They share more than their business though: they also share Scarlett’s husband, Rufus, who’s been Shannon’s best friend since childhood. It’s a cosy setup. Unless one of them has a secret…

When Scarlett and Rufus’s baby plans are decimated by a surprise turn of events, their marriage hits the rocks and they both turn to Shannon. All three relationships are pushed to breaking point, but when loyalties become divided, how do you decide who’s most important?

Review of a witch

I’ve been a fan of Michele Gorman’s books for a while now, so when I was asked if I would like to read her latest novel ‘Love is a Four-Legged Word’, it was an easy answer give – of course I wanted to read it!

The story revolves around unconventional animal behaviourist Scarlett, her husband Rufus, and friend and colleague, wacky, yet on-the-ball, Shannon. Shannon also happens to be Rufus’s best friend.

I kind of guessed from the relationship between the three of them, that there was going to be some conflict of interest going on in the book, but it doesn’t turn out how I had imagined.

Scarlett and Shannon run a dog business together, ‘Ruff Love’. The laughs came thick and fast courtesy of their clientele, and not just from the four-legged ones either. Some of the dogs’ owners were barking mad too.

The book is filled with strong characters that are surrounded by an engaging plot-line. There are a few very emotional scenes in the book, from friendships to families, and infertility too. All of which Ms. Gorman perfectly executes.

If you are looking for a romantic, heart-warming story, yet one that will have you laughing out loud and enjoying the fun, then this is the one to choose.

About the author of a witch

Michele Gorman

Michele writes books with heart and humour, full of best friends, girl power and, of course, love and romance. Call them beach books or summer reads, chick lit or romcom… readers and reviewers call them “feel good”, “relatable” and “thought-provoking”.

She is both a Sunday Times and a USA Today bestselling author, raised in the US and living in London. She is very fond of naps, ice cream and Richard Curtis films but objects to spiders and the word “portion”.

I spend way too much time on Twitter and Facebook when I should be writing, so please come say hello.
