- Love at First Bark-Debbie Burns
Mia and her son are adjusting to their new lives after her husband dies. She has to deal with the fact that he was unfaithful, and her son now has a half-brother. Her husband’s friend, who is also her son’s godfather, has always been there for them, and it turns out he still is. In fact, he has been in love with Mia from the beginning. Mia volunteers at the local animal shelter and they are all caught up in helping out when a dozen border collies are dumped at a local park. Romance and dogs, of course I enjoyed this one.
2. A Season for Second Chances-Jenny Bayliss
The Nook is a home and one-time business on the English shore. It doesn’t take long before Annie fits in with everyone except the homeowner’s nephew. Annie opens up a coffee shop and adds café services. Soon, she can’t imagine ever leaving. Loved this book! I love British humor. Where else do you hear such great lines as “I wanted to slap her in the face with a wet cod.”?
3. Piglet-Melissa Shapiro, DVM
This book is actually about a tiny blind deaf pink puppy and not a baby pig. Piglet is a doxie-chihuahua mix of double dapple heritage. This double dapple genetics often results in birth defects. This also happens in other breeds when two merles are bred. Dr. Shapiro takes Piglet in to foster him. You can imagine how that goes. The family adopts him. He got his name because he was pink just like a baby pig when he arrived. This story tells the tale of dealing with a blind and deaf puppy and teaching him how to communicate with his world.
Magazines: Country Living (3), Best Friends (2)
If you are wondering how I read multiple issues of the same magazine in one month, it is because I have a backlog of issues to catch up on. I fell behind while working and am trying to catch up. Yes, I have an issue with throwing away publications without having read them first. Don’t judge me!
