What they say: The thought of having a dog hasn’t crossed Theo Martin’s mind. It’s not that he doesn’t like dogs–he does–but the idea has simply never occurred to him. It has occurred to his mother though, and when she decides to buyhim a puppy because she thinks it will “liven him up a bit”, his life is turned completely upside down and not for the better as far as he’sconcerned. But when he discovers that having a cute dog on the end of a lead attracts a great deal of female attention, he soon changes his mind. All kinds of women stop to pet the pup and while they coo over Poppy, they talk to him. A lot. And for Theo, it looks like his love life is taking a very welcome turn for the better. But what about Josie Wilde, his dog sitter? Forced to employ someone to walk his dog when he’s in work, he finds himself increasingly attracted to her, but unfortunately Josie’s interest in him appears to be purely professional. As the summer unfolds and he falls head over heels in love with the sweet and vulnerable pup, he finds himself falling for Josie.For Theo, it’s not so much ‘love me, love my dog’, but more like ‘love my dog, love me, too’. Please…?
About the book: I’ve said this before (and I’ll say it again), but when you’re a book blogger there’s a hug mismatch between what you say you’ll read and what you get to and I’m gutted that it’s only now I’m getting to another Liz Davies book!
This is the story of Theo, who’s in a bit of a rut and is suddenly handed what he sees as anything but a lifeline- a doggie. (Jumps around the place). God I needed this book, and from the off was right with Theo, who reminded me of someone close. I felt for his point of view and he had me with his opinion on John Wicks (why the dog, people, why. Why?!?!)
I loved his journey and the brilliant Poppy. I smiled along, giggled in places and just loved really!! Perfect escapism and an author I will honestly make sure I follow. Thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for allowing me to be part of the blog tour.
About the author
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love. She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and whenshe isn’t scribbling away inthe notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat-she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days. She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travelthe world in it.
