Susan C Daffron is on tour now with CLP Blog Tours and Fuzzy Logic
Librarian Jan Carpenter likes things just so. Nestled in her tidy little cottage on the outskirts of the small hamlet of Alpine Grove, she enjoys her quiet life with her friendly, rotund black lab, Rosa.
Jan’s orderly life is turned upside down when she attends her mother’s latest wedding in San Diego. (Number six…or maybe seven, but who’s counting?) There, Jan encounters Michael Lawson, the obnoxious neighbor kid from twenty years ago. He’s still irritating, but not as annoying as his dog who has a habit of eating…everything. The last thing Jan wants to do is risk heartache on a vacation fling with a smooth-talking serial dater, even if he is sinfully gorgeous and finds her unusual ability to remember obscure facts fascinating.
Amidst wardrobe destruction, canine digestive indiscretions, and episodes of extreme mortification, Jan’s desire to avoid drama may put the brakes on her fiery attraction to Michael. But maybe being cautious and responsible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
I have also read the first book in this cute series, Chez Stinky and found Daffron’s writing to be immediately enjoyable. And I’m a huge dog lover, so of course I love all the dogs in the books and how much attention they get in the pages! Just like with the first, there are humorous and heart-warming moments throughout the book. Jan’s mom sounded pretty hysterical and the whole “heart sick” scene had me snickering. If you enjoy sweet romance stories, I definitely think you need to check these out!
