I fell in love with the first book in series and this one welcomed me back into the warmth of Hedgehog Hollow like a much-needed hug. I am local to the Wolds and Jessica Redland captures the beauty of the setting in her writing, and as someone shielding the descriptions gave me a view of the outside and an escape. Thomas’ meadow is vivid and somewhere I wish I could spend time there myself.
The novel begins with a giggle when the rescue centre opens and I was immersed back into the lives of Sammie and Josh. It catches up with them a few weeks after the end of the previous book and covers the consequences of the Grimes brothers’ actions, family rifts, mental health as well as discovering more about Josh and his background. All topics are covered sensitively with some unexpected turns when family secrets are revealed. The hedgehogs are adorable and I have learnt so much about them by reading these novels, which is great for awareness.
The handy recap provided means it can be read as a standalone novel, but personally I think you gain so much more by reading the first book beforehand.
Would I recommend?
Jessica Redland’s books offer an escape from the humdrum of life and lockdown, and this one is no exception. The characters fast become friends, making you want to continue reading and revisit them in the future. The stunning settings, memorable characters and adorable hedgehogs make this is a book to snuggle down with under the duvet and enjoy. I can’t wait to read the next in the series and discover more about Fizz, who I connected to straight away.
Jessica Redland is the bestselling author of ten novels, including The Secret to Happiness, which are all set around the fictional location of Whitsborough Bay. Inspired by her hometown of Scarborough she writes uplifting women’s fiction which has garnered many devoted fans.
