Publisher's Summary

This short story is the perfect introduction to best-selling author Virginia Smith's latest series, Tales from the Goose Creek B&B. Set in the years before the Richardsons launch their bed and breakfast scheme, the quirky residents of the small Kentucky town are all in a tizzy over the upcoming Fall Festival. Alison, Al and Millie's headstrong daughter, astounds everyone with the news that she's getting married - in three weeks - to a Colombian! As her parents frantically try to stop the nuptials, Dr. Horatio, Goose Creek's beloved veterinarian, is determined to solve the mystery of the six-toed kittens that have been popping up all over town.

This charming prequel will make you laugh out loud and fall in love with the delightful residents of Goose Creek.

Wholesome goodness

This is the first book from this series that I have read. It is a short, cute, clean little tale following lives in a small Kentucky town. Nothing profound, but if you sometimes (or all the time) like light-hearted wholesomeness this is a good place to look.

A Cute Story

This story is a wonderful antidote to the evening news. Spend a couple hours meeting Dr. Horatio and his family. Happy ending guaranteed.

Will make you laugh as advertised :)

So I was baking a Christmas cake and let me tell you, I couldn't have chosen a better story to accompany the pastime. It just goes together well with baking. It's the domesticity. It feels like Virginia is visiting for tea and telling you gossip about your neighbours.

Ladies and gents, this is the Road to Avonlea, southern version. It's a delightful exploration of quirky and very human characters... and there are polydactyl cats all around as well :) Becky Daughty's southern drawl was very enjoyable to listen to. And the Colombian made me laugh so hard!

Go have a listen, this little story is entertaining!

Love this series!

Would you consider the audio edition of Dr. Horatio vs. the Six-Toed Cat to be better than the print version?

Yes, because I can knit/spin while listening.

What did you like best about this story?

I had already listened to The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade: Tales from the Goose Creek B&B and wasn't sure about listening to a prequel (I usually like to do books in order) but I loved it. The characters/town/storylines are so engaging. What I like best, I think, is that animals are included in the stories.

Have you listened to any of Becky Doughty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes (see above). Just as enjoyable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did as it was a short story.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

I look forward to listening to more in this series.
