Primrose Park by Christie Barlow

Vet Molly has always been career driven and focussed on caring for her animals, but when she meets a gorgeous Mystery Man at a conference and their connection is off the charts, well, one night off work won’t hurt anyone…except the next morning he’s vanished and all Molly knows about him is his first name.

Three months later, back in Love Heart Lane, everyone loves the story of Molly’s amazing one-night stand.  It’s so unlike her! But when Mystery Man turns up walking his dog through Primrose Park and their night together seems to mean nothing to him, Molly needs her friends and neighbours more than ever. And especially when she’s left with the most unexpected of surprises…


The importance of friendship
Molly and Cam have a one night stand but Cam runs out straight after leaving no information so imagine Mollys shock when she comes face to face with him in the town she lives in having just found out she is pregnant with his baby! 
I loved Molly, she is an intelligent and fun character who is surrounded by friends who love her. She is a vet and struggles when she is told that because her blood pressure is so low that she will need to take time off work but she still follows her doctors advice, and supported by her friends, her maternal instinct kicking in and her baby became her priority. She is liked and respected in her community, able to pull people together when needed. She is an independent and loyal person who stands up for what she believes in and I think that’s a big part of what made me like her so much 
There is a big focus in this book on family and friendships with a lot of drama that caught my attention and had me keeping on reading. The support network that most of the characters have makes it feel more real and seeing the community come together following an incident felt like something that would happen in real life which helped me to bond with the other characters in addition to the rest of the community. The only thing I would say is that the story is told from Mollys point of view and although personally I would have loved to have heard from some of the other characters at certain times, it still really worked and had me hooked
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story full of the love and support of family and friends with a good sprinkle of drama that will keep you reading
