Goodreads:  If you lost both your husband and your dog to cancer within weeks of each other, but you were sadder about the dog, would you tell anyone? Maybe your closest friends. Unfortunately, Jane Bailey’s closest friends are on the other side of the country. That’s where Jane plans to go now that she’s free to leave Philadelphia, the too cold, beachless, street taco-deficient city her husband dragged her to six years ago. But with no job prospects in her hometown of San Diego, Jane is roped into helping out temporarily at her uncle’s southwestern small-town B&B. En route to her new role as innkeeper and breakfast chef, she finds a stray at a rest stop. With her heart in pieces from the loss of her dog, she’s determined not to let this mutt worm its way into her affections. She’s also determined to have next-to-no interaction with the B&B’s irritating guests, and the even more annoying handyman who lives next door. Can Jane keep her sanity—and her secret that she’s not really a grieving widow—while trying to achieve her dream of getting back to the place she thinks is home?

Kritters Thoughts:  My second Jackie Bouchard book and I am officially a fan!  I love how her books center around dogs, as right now that is what my life is centered around.  Jane is a recent widow and also lost her dog which was maybe more devastating.  She is wanting to return to her favorite city of San Diego, but gets side tracked at her aunt and uncle's B&B where she learns some interesting things about herself.

Jane was a fantastic character and I immediately cared about her and what she was wanting to do with her life.  I love it when I immediately get drawn in by a character and care about them.  Usually characters are super peppy and for some reason Jane's negativity really stuck out in this book and I enjoyed the realness it made of her.  

I will definitely be following Jackie Bouchard and hoping for her next book soon.  I wouldn't mind if she continued Jane's story into another book!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
