I loved this book. It should inspire people to adopt from and volunteer at rescue shelters.

RNA Winner 2010. It was a good book. I like that there is more than one romance developing. Learnt that I would never take on a Bassett Hound. I have now completed all the RNA shortlist for this year and would like to thank the library for helping me get all the books especially this one as many were not available easily in Canada. I am not sure I would have rated this number 1 this year. I will need to think about it. But it is certainly in my top 3. Enjoy and thanks Library. I love the Library!
