Review: You Lucky Dog

This was such a fun read! Carly and Max’s dogs get switched due to a freak dog-walker incident (you’ll want to check that out – believe me!), and thankfully they manage to figure things out and get the dog situation figured out.

Fate intervenes, and Carly and Max, along with their pooches, start spending time together – just for the dog socialization, of course. But soon they realize there may be more here than dog bff’s … until fate puts a few major roadblocks in their path. And then they have to decide if what they have is worth working for, or if it was just for a while.

Such a great book! These characters have a depth to them that you just don’t always find, and I came to love both them and their hounds! This story kept me turning pages, looking forward to finding out what they would decide to do and how they would choose to handle each situation that arose. Really loved this one! 💜



An accidental dog swap unleashes an unexpected love match in this new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.

Carly Kennedy’s life is in a spiral. She is drowning in work, her divorced parents are going through their midlife crises, and somehow Carly’s sister convinces her to foster Baxter–a basset hound rescue with a bad case of the blues. When Carly comes home late from work one day to discover that the dog walker has accidentally switched out Baxter for another perkier, friendlier basset hound, she has reached the end of her leash.

When Max Sheffington finds a depressed male basset hound in place of his cheerful Hazel, he is bewildered. But when cute, fiery Carly arrives on his doorstep, he is intrigued. He was expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with firm ideas about dog discipline. And Carly was not expecting a handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese. Baxter is besotted with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For his sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite.
