Reseña del editor
Thirty-nine year old Rachel is having a really bad year. After losing her job and breaking up with her boyfriend, Rachel has inherited her late aunt's house, her beloved border collie, and a crowded rescue kennel, despite the fact that she knows almost nothing about dogs. Still, considering her limited options, she gamely takes up the challenge of running the kennel. And as Rachel starts finding new homes for the abandoned strays, it turns out that it might not just be the dogs that need rescuing.

This story doesn't promise happy endings, but it does show people facing their own demons and finding a way forward that is positive and even uplifting. Will Nat and John get pregnant? Maybe, maybe not, but you are left with the impression that they will be a family irregardless of being parents to a baby or their lovely Bertie on his bassetthound own. From the main character, Rachel and her storyline dealing with the thorny issue of a married lover, a tetchy relationship with her mother, gaining understanding about her deceased Aunt, Dot's multifaceted life, unplanned pregnancy issues for older women and allowing the possibility of a new love to blossom; the author unashamedly allows real life to take on a magical tone that gives readers hope.
I loved this book, and was gripped by the possibilities of life and relationships; be they between humans or their dog companions.
Get this book. You'll not regret it.
All find each other when they become involved with a local rescue kennel. Friendships aren't immediate but start slowly, with each so absorbed with their issues that they can't see what is just beyond their noses. Of course, the dogs do the heavy lifting in getting the characters to start seeing and resolving their issues.
As is usual with animal based stories, the dogs steal the show, especially(for me) Bertie the Basset Hound. And there is plenty of good information about the benefits of rescuing versus buying a dog and some training tips. And there was a twist or two that keep the reader guessing. A quick and sweet read.
