Dog Crazy

Dog Crazy A Novel of Love Lost and Found
By: Meg Donohue
Releasing March 10th, 2015
William Morrow


The USA Today bestselling author of How to Eat a Cupcake and All the Summer Girls returns with an unforgettably poignant and funny tale of love and loss, confronting our fears, and moving on . . . with the help of a poodle, a mutt, and a Basset retriever named Seymour

As a pet bereavement counselor, Maggie Brennan uses a combination of empathy, insight, and humor to help patients cope with the anguish of losing their beloved four-legged friends. Though she has a gift for guiding others through difficult situations, Maggie has major troubles of her own that threaten the success of her counseling practice and her volunteer work with a dog rescue organization.

Everything changes when a distraught woman shows up at Maggie’s office and claims that her dog has been stolen. Searching the streets of San Francisco for the missing pooch, Maggie finds herself entangled in a mystery that forces her to finally face her biggest fear-and to open her heart to new love.

Packed with deep emotion and charming surprises, Dog Crazy is a bighearted and entertaining story that skillfully captures the bonds of love, the pain of separation, and the power of our dogs to heal us.

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: Dog Crazy became a pleasant surprise. It's full of emotions and real characters. I wasn't sure what to think at first, but a few chapters in, I was hooked. Maggie, the story's leading character, has a lot of issues she has to face head on, and unknowingly begins to when she takes a new, unsure client who can't seem to face the truth about her pet. The story is charming, emotional and very engaging and I found myself flipping through the pages with anticipation as the story continued to suck me in. It was a slow-ish start but when it picked up I could not stop! I haven't read a thing by the author before, but I'm going to be checking out her other books!  Recommended!
