Sit, Stay, Love--Book Review

 Novel--Book Review

                                      The author is committed to donating a portion of the proceeds
                                                                 toward senior dog rescue

                        Please don't confuse this book with a children' s book with the same title

I laughed from Chapter 1.  I giggled from Chapter 2.  And all the way through.  

My first thought was this book is just gonna be a chuckle.  Is there any depth?  I found it to be light-heartened and fun.  

I enjoyed the characters.  The hero is a professional baseball player described as a abrasive.  The heroine is described as quirky.

And, yes there was depth as Cal struggles with his feelings of insecurity and with forgiveness.  

From the back cover . . . 
Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother’s elderly dog, Tippy, he’s quick to call on a pet-sitting service. Gina isn’t thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can’t abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy. As Gina travels through Cal’s world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too… Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together. 


"There's just something about a dog, isn't there? What is it about these loyal, quirky, laughable, loving creatures that turn our lives upside down? I've been honored to share my life with many canine companions and each one has taught me a thing or two (or three.) In this novel, you'll meet Tippy, a dog who seems to be able to grasp the important things in life much better than his human companions. I'm convinced that God gave us dogs so we can have some adorable reminders about what unconditional love looks like. I hope you enjoy your travels with Tippy!"
