Review: Dog Crazy by Meg Donohue

Goodreads:  As a pet bereavement counselor, Maggie Brennan uses a combination of empathy, insight, and humor to help patients cope with the anguish of losing their beloved four-legged friends. Though she has a gift for guiding others through difficult situations, Maggie has major troubles of her own that threaten the success of her counseling practice and her volunteer work with a dog rescue organization. 

Everything changes when a distraught woman shows up at Maggie’s office and claims that her dog has been stolen. Searching the streets of San Francisco for the missing pooch, Maggie finds herself entangled in a mystery that forces her to finally face her biggest fear-and to open her heart to new love.

Kritters Thoughts:  First, if you are a dog lover, you should read this, but you may not want to read this in a public setting!  

Maggie Brennan starts as a character who has made a dramatic move to San Francisco to start her life with a new beginning - new job and new home.  Quickly into the book, Maggie becomes a less than reliable character and her story takes a turn, but I willingly followed her on the journey.  

Maggie is a therapist with her own set of issues and it was interesting to see one of her patients quietly turn the tables on her and they end up healing each other.  At moments I could predict what was coming next, but I didn't mind know where it was probably headed.  

This is a shorter book, so I would recommend curling up with it one afternoon and take it all in one (ish) setting.  It isn't the "deepest" book, but the story and the "lesson" make the book worth reading.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
