Book Review: Love, Accidentally

By Melissa Amster

Ilsa is a veterinarian who comes across an injured dog and his attractive owner, Grif. Before she knows it, she and Grif can’t get enough of each other. However, there’s one obstacle standing in the way of their happiness...Grif’s ex-girlfriend.

I thought Sarah Pekkanen’s short story, “Love, Accidentally” was a nice treat at the end of a long and busy month. It was a sweet and romantic story that reminded me of all the excitement I felt in the beginning of my relationship with my husband. The conversations felt very natural and it was easy to be swept into the story instantly. The characters and scenery were easy to visualize, as well.

Although I know it was a short story, I still wish it had been longer and perhaps included Grif’s ex-girlfriend, Elise's point of view (like how Liz and Lisa did it in “The D Word”). She was in "All is Bright," even though "Love, Accidentally" isn't really a sequel. Most of the book was chapters from Ms. Pekkanen’s other books. She had plenty of room to write more, if she had room to fill so much space.

Overall, it was a lovely, feel-good read. A nice treat for those waiting for “These Girls” to be published. And at 99 cents for Kindle, it’s just a mouse-click away!
