"Love is a Four-Legged Word" Book Review...

...I go through spurts where I read a ton and then I don't read at all. Being that I'm technically "on call" until after 6pm M-F, I've been doing a lot of reading. I don't want to get too involved in anything before 6pm or make social plans so reading is a good way to pass the time until then. Anyways, I just finished reading "Love is a Four-Legged Word" by Kandy Shepherd...LOVED this book! Maybe I'm just into the easy read, fun, romantic books these days but I just loved it.

Summary: Maddy's landlord passes away and Maddy had promised to take care of his dog, Brutus. Tom, big shot lawyer, comes in to tell Maddy that Walter has left his millions of dollars to Brutus (AKA Maddy since she's the legal owner). Of course, Walter's greedy little nephew comes in to threaten Maddy and Brutus and Tom swoops in to the rescue.

Of course, this is very predictable as you can only imagine what happens with Tom and Maddy's relationship. It wasn't quite the page turner that "Match Me If You Can" was but it was still a good, fun, easy read.

Up next, my very first Jennifer Weiner book!!!

I like because the dog's name is Brutus! I hope he's a bulldog...or he is in my mind anyways:)

I might have to pick this one up!

I'm the same way with reading...I love to do it, but with little kids, I don't get to often, so I go in spurts. I just picked up "That Camden Summer" by Lavyrle Spencer and I'm loving it so far - I never thought about doing a book review before, but maybe I will! =]

I love the brainless reads! Too much already going on so it is nice to just step out of reality for a little bit.
