Book Review-Love is a Four Legged Word-Michele Gorman

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Have the tissue box ready--both from laughing and a tear or two as Scarlett and Rufus go through a very rough period in their marriage. Shannon--the third wheel and best friends with both of them is stuck right in the middle, worrying that these two would break up and how she just couldn't take sides-at least not too much. Shannon is looking for Mr. Right but is so shy and insecure.

Scarlett had started a dog training and walking business called Ruff Love-Shannon was her partner, who mostly did the dog walking. You are going to love all their clients--both canine and human. And as is usually the case the humans had to be trained right along with the dogs!

You are going to love this book--it starts out kind slow--but quietly creeps up on you! I really started crying at the ending. This is another "do not miss reading" from Michele Gorman--she never fails to please.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Escape into the romantic comedy about canines, conception and fresh starts from the USA Today and Sunday Times bestseller that reviewers and readers describe as the perfect “beach read," "funny and heartbreaking” and a "feel good summer read”

Perfect for fans of Stacy Ballis, Karen McQuestion and Elin Hilderbrand

Best friends Scarlett and Shannon spend their days tangled up in dog leashes and covered in fur, running their dog business together. Scarlett’s intensive training course, Ruff Love, fixes owners as much as their pets, while Shannon spends her days walking spoiled pooches.

They share more than their business though: they also share Scarlett's husband, Rufus, who's been Shannon's best friend since childhood. It's a cozy setup. Unless one of them has a secret...

When Scarlett and Rufus's baby plans are decimated by a surprise turn of events, their marriage hits the rocks and they both turn to Shannon. All three relationships are pushed to breaking point, but when loyalties become divided, how do you decide who's most important?

Michele writes books with heart and humor, full of best friends, girl power and, of course, love and romance. Call them beach books or summer reads, chick lit or romcom... readers and reviewers call them "feel good", "relatable" and "thought-provoking".

She is both a Sunday Times and a USA Today bestselling author, raised in the US and living in London. She is very fond of naps, ice cream and Richard Curtis films but objects to spiders and the word "portion".
