Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout

(Via)
Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout is a wonderful read. It was charming and sweet with just enough mystery thrown into to keep the plot clicking right along. The story is about Dr. Cyrus Mills. He has recently moved back to the town of Eden Falls, Vermont to take over is estranged, now passed away, Father's veterinary practice. The only problem is that the "Healthy Paws" vet franchise in neighboring Patton is gunning for him. Will he be able to get enough business to prevent Healthy Paws from buying him out? Will his love life get sorted through? 

This book was right up my alley. It's about dogs. It's cute. It's set in a small town. Cyrus Mills was living in Charleston before he moved back to Eden Falls. I did think that it started on a weird note and in looking it up I found that it is the follow-up book to Trout's The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs. This meant that some of the characters had already been developed and so they weren't in this book. It didn't lose anything, it just made them seem a bit flat. However, not having read the first book, I really liked Dog Gone, Back Soon and it stood well on its own. 

A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
