In the blink of an eye, Josey lost the most important people in her life, her parents.
Can a hound dog named Cookie, a pair of Mourning Doves, and a passionate vet bring the holiday spirit back into Josey’s life in time for Christmas?
Here’s the thing. The premise of this book is great. Emotionally wounded woman get’s dog, meets cute veterinarian, falls in love. As a romance that sounds great. This particular story is just too short. Sure, its a novella so it’s meant to be short, but this story would have been great as a full book, now it was pretty much worthless.
Because it’s so short, the characters fall flat. I didn’t really feel for any of them, not even the dog (and I love dogs).
The story just went by too fast as well. The romance was too quick and just felt unrealistic.
Do I recommend it?
Want a quick and somewhat cute read? Then go ahead.
