Goodreads:  Exhausted veterinarian Morgan Pearce is feeling overworked and under-thanked, so when two favorite clients ask her to watch their special needs senior dog in their Nantucket home, she jumps at the chance for a summer break. She hopes her time on the island will be a reset from the stress of her everyday life, but her chill vacation vibe takes a hit when she gets roped into fostering a challenging, anxious dog and helping plan the local rescue group's glittery annual fundraiser.

Her trip starts to feel more like a vacation when Morgan begins falling for Nathan Keating, an irresistible entrepreneur who thinks every problem can be solved on a surfboard. Just as the summer is shaping up to be the magical refresh she needs, thanks to a fling that feels like the beginning of something real and Hudson, the foster dog who reminds her how much she loves her job, a visit from her estranged brother and the discovery of who Nathan really is changes everything. Morgan finds herself at a crossroads, trying to determine if mistakes from the past must define the future, or if she should forgive, forget, and grab hold of a chance to finally rescue herself.

Kritters Thoughts:  A book with a dog on the cover and knowing it is a romance will always be a book that I will start and probably like!  Morgan Pearce is a veterinarian who has been through it all and is about to lose all of her marbles when the perfect summer break shows up on her doorstep when a patient of hers needs extra care while their parents are away and it is in a semi secluded location - so off Morgan goes to Nantucket.  

While always in a romance, the reader can easily predict where the characters will end up, the journey is the reason for reading.  I felt at times there were a few pieces missing, but overall I felt as though the journey was a great ride.  It was interesting reading about the turmoil a veterinarian and how dealing with both pets and humans is hard, especially when it can be a hard day for all parties involved.  With dogs in my care, I spend a lot of time with our vet and never thought about how their job is difficult dealing with both animals and humans! 

I loved how the healing care of dogs was shown in this book.  We recently lost a pet and our other two have been a part of the healing process and dogs can definitely bring the heart rate down!  

My third Victoria Schade book and third time was a charm - I have loved all three.  I hope to catch up with her books that I haven't read shortly and sure hope that there is a dog or two in each one!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
