ABOUT THE BOOK:
A couple's best friend?
Stylist Jessica Champlin knows it takes more than a darling goldendoodle to save a marriage. She and her ex-husband, investigative journalist Sebastian Hess, had too many irreconcilable differences for even their beloved dog, Baxter, to heal. So they've agreed to joint custody, and life has settled into a prickly normalcy.
But when Baxter heroically rescues a child and the video footage goes viral, Jess and Sebastian are thrown together again, and her life takes some very unexpected twists. The line of dogwear she creates becomes wildly successful, and suddenly she's in the spotlight with everyone watching—the press, the new guy she's seeing, Sebastian and the past she never imagined she would face again. Soon there's only one person by her side—and it's the person she least expected. She's willing to open up to a new normal…just as long as Baxter approves.
THE DOG PARK WILL BE RELEASED ON 29JULY14 FROM HARLEQUIN MIRA
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me an e-book ARC of The Dog Park in exchange for my honest review.
As I've said before in other blogs, I'm a sucker for books with animals as characters, specifically dogs. Especially when they have a HUGE starring role. As someone who has owned dogs most of her life I know how much joy and comfort (and sometimes frustration LOL) they bring. To me, they are kids with fur, part of my family. So I really loved that The Dog Park was strong on how animals have healing power.
I thought this book was thoughtfully written, even if had more of a Women's Fiction/Chick- Lit
than true romance. I like how Jess matured and grew in the book. Although the book was pretty predictable, it was still enjoyable and I found myself quickly turning the pages and savoring them at the same time.
