Fat Dogs and French Estates 5 by Beth Haslam

March 28, 2021

What I love most about Beth Haslam’s lovely series of books is that I always feel I’ve been on a visit to France and have spent time with her, Jack and their wonderful collection of animals. This fifth book in the series is another delightful sojourn on their estate in south-west France. I’ve walked the woods, ridden the quad bike, played with the puppies and helped rear baby pheasants, and all from the comfort of my sofa at home. I’ve also joined them at the local auberge, met all their delightful quirky neighbours and enjoyed the beautiful French sun and scenery.

This was a lovely descriptive book, but it’s the rich and lively dialogue that moves the story along. I can just hear their gorgeous vet speaking as well as grumpy Jack’s diatribes that hide a heart of gold, far from the cantankerous impression he likes to give.

Altogether, this was a fabulous, beautifully written memoir that brought a smile to my face with every page. Thank you, Beth Haslam for inviting me into your life and home. I hope I can come again soon!

  1. This is a series I will definitely be reading. I have such a weakness for books like this set in France… they’re what I read to cheer myself up when I need it.
