The Truth About Love and Dogs by Lilly Bartlett
Four little words, uttered by her husband… ‘Oh my god,’ he gasped into her shoulder. ‘Shannon!’ There’s just one problem: her name isn’t Shannon. Rewind six months and Scarlett and Rufus aren’t in the honeymoon stage anymore so much as the honey-should-we-bother phase. Desperate to get their sparkle back, Scarlett has plotted, planned and waxed more than any woman should have to, but none of it is working. Which makes it very hard to start the family they want. At least her business is going strong, even if her marriage isn’t. She and her best friend spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur. Scarlett is the fairy dogmother, training hopeless pets like compulsive eater Barkley, impulsive Romeo Murphy and bossy Biscuit. Meanwhile, her best friend walks the dogs and pines for the man who doesn’t know she exists. Thank goodness the women have each other. If only Scarlett could work out how to get her marriage back on track. But Rufus isn’t sharing his feelings with her. He is, though, sharing with her best friend. Her best friend, Shannon.
This was great fun and, as you would expect, the canines steal the show. This story is an ideal mix of romance, intrigue, and loveable dogs. And all the while, I kept rooting for Scarlett and hoping she achieved the happiness she deserved as she and her husband deal with some heart-wrenching issues.
Get your tissues ready for this thoroughly enjoyable read.
