Book review

Fresh Eggs and Dog Beds 3: More living ‘The Dream’ in Rural Ireland by Nick Albert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Watch out for that giant wood wasp!

I was gifted this book so had not read parts 1 and 2 of the series but part 3 happily stood alone. I soon got to know Nick and his lovely wife Lesley. There are indeed lots of delicious fresh eggs, with a range of tasty cakes coming out of the kitchen in big batches. Whilst the much loved “selectively deaf” dogs are very much part of the story and of their lives.

I was hugely impressed by their commitment to the rebuilding of their house on the hill in rural Ireland. I too breathed a sigh of relief when they had finished. And I loved the descriptions of the countryside thereabouts.

Intermixed are a couple of seriously alarming moments (no spoilers allowed) and moments which made me laugh out loud. The shenanigans with the cockerels were hilarious.

So I am looking forward to joining Nick and Lesley in their cosy home again, for some more good ‘craic’ and a piece of freshly baked cake, when Book 4 is released.
