Fall in love with a little help from man’s best friend in New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay’s contemporary romance debut.

Mackenzie “Mac” Harris fled her hometown of Bluff Point, Maine, after being left at the altar—and seeking solace in the arms of her best friend’s off-limits brother. Now, seven years later, she’s back to attend her best friend’s wedding—safe, or so she thinks, from the mistakes of her youth.

But Gavin Tolliver has never forgotten the woman who has always held his heart. And when Mac rescues a stray puppy named Tulip, only Gavin, the town’s veterinarian, can help. With a little assistance from Tulip, Gavin vows to make Mac realize that their feelings are more than just puppy love…

Advance Galley Reviews

Perfect mind fluff of a book. Yes, romance novels are predictable but sometimes you need a little fluff between the thrillers and mystery novels. This book meets that bill beautifully. A gorgeous, perfect veterinarian, a small town girl returned home for a wedding, and a stray puppy bring these two people together who already share a tie thanks to his sister and one night of passion 7 years ago. A few little plot twists: awful, abusive owner of puppy claims her, setting the two on a mission to get her back, uncertainty over the sisters reaction if they got together, the looming wedding; and the ever present distance and careers they both enjoy make this a pleasant diversion from reality. The plot flows well, the characters are very likeable and have an easy familiarity that doesn’t seem forced, and 2 eccentric bucket listing aunts make this a really fun way to spend a few hours.
