I just finished up listening to the audio book Dog Crazy: A Novel of Love Lost and Found by Meg Donohue.
How do I resist a dog book…I can’t. This one was pretty good. It’s a light reading-cry in the middle-happy ending book…nothing deep, nothing dark. It’s a good happy ending story that is great for a light summer read.
Here’s what Amazon had to say, “The USA Today bestselling author of How to Eat a Cupcake and All the Summer Girls returns with an unforgettably poignant and funny tale of love and loss, confronting our fears, and moving on . . . with the help of a poodle, a mutt, and a Basset retriever named Seymour.
As a pet bereavement counselor, Maggie Brennan uses a combination of empathy, insight, and humor to help patients cope with the anguish of losing their beloved four-legged friends. Though she has a gift for guiding others through difficult situations, Maggie has major troubles of her own that threaten the success of her counseling practice and her volunteer work with a dog rescue organization.
Everything changes when a distraught woman shows up at Maggie’s office and claims that her dog has been stolen. Searching the streets of San Francisco for the missing pooch, Maggie finds herself entangled in a mystery that forces her to finally face her biggest fear-and to open her heart to new love.
Packed with deep emotion and charming surprises, Dog Crazy is a bighearted and entertaining story that skillfully captures the bonds of love, the pain of separation, and the power of our dogs to heal us.”
Amazon readers give the book 4.5 stars. I’d say 4.2. It was well written and a good book. I just prefer books that have a little more meat or history to them. I did enjoy the audio book and recommend it. I think the book would be quick read.
