Review: This book is a really romantic one but with added love for dogs. It it a book l could not put down once l started reading it. I found this book really easy to get in to I was hooked after reading the first page. It is heart-warming know Rachel ends up loving Gem and the other dogs and she finds new friends and even falls in love. Rachel is so kind to everybody she really friendly and easy to get along with. Rachel's mother sounds jealous that she inherited the house and everything in it. I loved reading this book. This book won the pure passion awards 2010 RNA romantic novel. I bought this book because l liked the cover and l read the back and it sounded a good book and it was very good book. You will be swept off your feet with this book. Everybody who bought this book also loved it. I wish l could rate this book more than the 5 stars l rated it because it is so good. I wish there was a follow on to this book as l would love to read more about all the people in this book and the dogs.
Praise For Lucy Dillon.
