Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It was a sweet romance, a clean read, and an interesting story.
Katie Price needs inspiration for her next book, and she follows the dart in the map to a small town in South Carolina. The adventure leads her to a town doctor and his nephew, Kyle. Kyle has a way with these amazing dogs, and Katie has to learn to truly see them, and him.
It’s a good story. The read is quick, and I didn’t want to put it down. The story is engaging and you want to see where it leads. It is a bit slow, but I imagine that’s how it would be in Bishopville, South Carolina—slow and steady. But you will be mesmerized by the doc, the dogs, and Kyle.
Would I recommend it: Sure. This is a good, clean read for summer.
About the book – from Goodreads: “Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.
Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.
When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.
