Vetted Kindle Edition
Fiona is an older, more established woman; a veterinarian working towards the goal of starting her own large animal practice. When a young woman arrives on her doorstep one night carrying a dog she may have fatally injured with her car, Fiona is thrown for a loop.
Vetted—a life that neither woman anticipated, but each learns they want desperately.
Will their families, the fates, and rustlers finally bring these women to their knees? The only way they can survive is to stand strong together, but are they both ready to fight for what they want? Only time will tell….

I could relate to Alyssa on so many levels and wished so many times growing up that I had the nerve to stand up to my family in the way that she did.
No idea what I'm talking about, well then you're just going to need to read the book for yourself!
Fiona reminds me of the vet's I worked for whilst studying in the UK, strong, independent, determined and workaholics!
If you enjoy reading about strong female characters who overcome various obstacles and adversities thrown their way then this is definitely the book for you.
The characters are well developed, the storyline flows naturally with no unnecessary sex scenes, there's romance and intimacy as needed but not heaped on as is the case with some f/f books these days. There's plenty of drama and gun toting city girls turned country vet / cow girl to keep you reading all night as I did.
I'm hoping there is a follow on book from this one!

The story begins in modern day Denver but it may as well be a scene out of a 50’s or 60’s tv show. Allyssa is a new college student, studying business to help her father in his insurance brokerage. However, her education is not a segues into a fast moving enterprise. This is meant to be a temporary solution with the main goal of finding her a well-to-do husband, preferably one of the wealthy sons of the family’s country club cohorts. Allyssa’s parents and her older sister control what she wears, her choice of friends, hobbies, college major, every detail. There’s no room for her own voice until a single incident alters her path forever.
Enter the handsome but older Dr. Fiona Herriot. After what feels like a brief but still appropriate courtship, Fe proposes to Allyssa. Whether it’s the opportunity to go into a world that isn’t dictated by her family or whether it’s her affection for Fiona, Allyssa decidedly becomes Mrs. Herriot.
Together, they embark on a journey to the big country of Oregon where they open a veterinary practice. There are the trials and tribulations of a new marriage as well as learning to live in a rustic environment, far from city conveniences. There’s also a bit of danger and action. Finally, as their relationship deepens, so does their physical intimacy. Both characters evolve nicely but it’s Allyssa who grows into her adult skin.
Fast moving and unabashedly old fashioned like a steamy Lesfic version of a Hallmark movie.
Unfortunately, the book just never worked for me, on many levels.
Most obviously, the novel includes a number of grammatical errors and typos (the most obvious being towards the beginning, where one of the main characters, "Dr Herriot", is referred to as "Dr Harriet"), and due to that, it was difficult to stay in the "reading bubble". This book would benefit mightily from the work of a good editor, or even a good Beta Reader.
Additionally, the characters are unrealistic and unengaging - especially the main character, a college student who yearns for independence yet continues lugging home a laundry bag each weekend for the family maid to attend to. This same character has a family of cliched caricatures, none of which read as genuine.
The situations presented in the book are similarly unrealistic - the main character, Allyssa (constantly referred to as "the blonde") bringing an injured dog into a vet office and staying to HELP in a very serious procedure, is just one instance. That same character then moving into the vets office, is another. Yet another being this same main characters not having a cell phone, is simply ridiculous. It's these kinds of set-ups that ring false and bring the storytelling to a stand still.
The other main character, Dr Herriot (constantly referred to as "the brunette") is wooden and the conversations shared between the main characters is stilted at best.
The entire book just lacks any kind of realism or anything to relate to.
All in all, my advice is your money and time are better spent on other books.
