Must Love Dogs by Claire Cook
Must Love Dogs by Claire Cook follows forty-year-old Sarah Hurlihy, a recently divorced preschool teacher who struggles with getting back out there into the dating market. Her sister sets up a personal ad for her and soon enough, Sarah is forced into the world of first time dating and awkward messages on her phone. Sarah is joined in the book by her hilarious cast of family, many of whom struggle as well in the dating world, as well as a few significant men in her new dating world.
Warm and charming, I found Must Love Dogs to be a must read and I’m glad that I finally had the opportunity to sink my teeth into it. I found Sarah’s journey post-divorce to be an honest portrayal of someone who hasn’t completely lost hope but is taking it incredibly cautious. The book is filled with witty observations about men and marriage and the heartache of dating. Honest and often times humorous, this book is an absolute must read.
