The Truth About Love and Dogs – Lilly Bartlett / #Review @MicheleGormanUK 

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.



My review

A book with dogs in the title and on the cover? This is a must read for a dog addict like me!

From the first page, the author dragged me into the story and she never let go until the last word.

I have a new puppy for about three weeks now and I picked up some tips. Thank you! 🙂

But the story is about a lot more than how to deal with a (young) dog. The author also added a heartbreaking and hearrwarming part that made my heart weep first and smile afterwards.

If you are looking for a book that makes you sad, happy and has you crying both sad an happy tears, stop searching. You have found it!

This is a book I adored. A little gem that I put on my to-recommend-list. 5 stars.

Thank you, Michele Gorman.
