    I am a fan of McKnight’s work, especially the Garoul series, and I thought this would be another series I would love. I didn’t read the first book and fortunately you don’t have too. You can read it as a stand alone.

    I read some reviews on this book and I could see all arguments. Reviews ranging from 3 to 5 stars. I settled on 4 stars. Now I have good reason for it. Wendy, the lead character annoyed and frustrated me. Her obvious naivety and her negative attitude really wound me up and I admit I was ready to forget about it. But my inner stubbornness kicked in. I got to 58% and my whole attitude towards the book changed.

    Literally a swipe of my kindle and I started to laugh. A LOT. Maybe it was the goat? I’m not sure but my attitude towards the book done a complete 360 and I found I was loving it and cheering the residents of sleepy wallpos on. I saw all the characters in a new light. I especially liked Chloe and Kiera and did not like Patel one bit. The Kids in the book add a really good back drop on the story and worked really well in the book.

    It turned into a fun light hearted read in the end and I’ve actually talked myself out of four stars and I’m going to give it 4.5. Purely because Gill managed to change my mind.

    If you’re looking for some light hearted fun and the worst kiss in the universe then give this ago. Enjoy!!

    This is a light hearted very funny book ideal for a afternoon in the sun. I read the first book before this one so I already new Wendy as a character, her naivete but also her intelligence and kindness. The book can be a little boring in the beginning because it’s slow to develop and takes a while to show other facets of Wendy than her insecurity and negativity and the rest of the supporting characters almost don’t show. It’s when the author put all of them together that the book starts to be very good and very funny.
    Filled with typical Irish humour and witty dialogs, I loved the book and laughed a lot. I think it’s better than the first one, maybe because I empathized more with Wendy and Kiera. The description of the worst kiss in the world is hilarious.
    Enjoy!

    ‘Wendy of the Wallops’ by Gill McKnight is an absolute delight. PC Wendy seems to be permanently awkward and embarrassed, especially around attractive women. She has recently come out to her friend and local vicar, Jane and her partner Renata from the first book in the series. She hasn’t quite worked up the courage to tell her family or her work colleagues. When she is asked to keep an eye out on young Lexi, whose father has gone on the run from his witness protection programme, she comes into contact with local artist and Guide Leader Keira. Between being constantly annoyed by Keira, her hot new boss from the Met and her cute doctor, Wendy is surrounded by women who confuse and arouse her. This is a story about a totally adorable character following her path towards accepting and being happy with her sexuality. It is also hilarious and sweet and I highly recommend it.

    I was given this ARC by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.

    Welcome Back

    Ms McKnight has once again written a wonderful tale featuring the residents of the quaint villages Higher and Lower Wallop. In this sequel, Welcome to the Wallops, Officer Wendy is assigned to a task force. Her assignment is to prevent a young girl from being kidnapped. How can she fulfill her mission with the many distractions that suddenly pop up in her life? Guess you will have to read the book to find out.

    I love this series for the warm, tender and sometimes humorous romances they are. I liked how Wendy grew and changed throughout the tale. She went from by the book, Ms Prim and Proper to a warm woman who doesn’t have to be so strict all the time, while she strives to become the Officer she longs to be. I really enjoyed watching Wendy become more at peace with herself and with the help of a very special and often annoying woman, she not only sees the world around her more clearly, she also finds a sense of peace. Seeing her as a Girl Guide and all the funny little laugh out loud incidents that come along with little (and sometimes big) girls was a delight and made the book so much more fun.

    This is a sweet and cute book that is already back in my must re-read pile

    This follow up to “Welcome To The Wallops” centres on PC Wendy Goodall. The story follows Wendy through her struggles and successes as she settles into her ‘gayness’ and manages to find herself in many humourous situations.
    Wendy is supported by friends both old and new. It’s good to drop in and see how Jane, Renata and Whistlestop are getting along. Surrounded by an aray of quirky characters that reside in ‘The Wallops’, Wendy manages to lead a Girl Guide group, flirt with the local GP, get caught up with DI Patel and a witness protection caper all the whilst her twin brother and birth mother are reconnecting and Wendy trying to get her head sorted about that. Oh, and add potentionally falling in love to the mix!
    Gill McKnight works her magic weaving this story through all its twists and turns bringing about a well written, interesting, positive, quirky, fun and loveable story that I would highly reccommend.
    I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.
