Can you ever really forget the one who got away?

August Merriweather has always been good with animals. In fact, she’s known as Manhattan’s Dog Whisperer. Men, on the other hand? Not so much. She’s been falling for the wrong guys ever since her regrettable crush on Keaton Sax, older brother of her best friend, Leah, and the biggest jerkface this side of the Hudson. 

Now an emotionally closed off widower, Keaton has become one of the most formidable men on Wall Street, but August knows his secret. He’s not driven by sales targets and bonus checks—Keaton just wants to give his family the security they never had. So when Leah asks Keaton to wrangle her over-the-top, dramatic husky at a weekend talent competition, Keaton says yes…and begs August to help him win the event for Leah.

Between obstacle courses, Molly’s husky temper tantrums and a cabin with just one bed, August is having a blast. Away from the pressure to have a “perfect life” with the “right guy,” she finds herself relaxing and getting to see the softer side of the man she once loved. Is this just a temporary truce? Or could Keaton finally be the right guy at the right time? (Courtesy of Amazon.)

Please share a favorite memory involving a dog.
There are so many! One that sticks out is when I was a young girl my grandmother had this beautiful dog named Lady. She was a retriever collie mix but was pure white everywhere except for a small tan patch on her back. She even had pure white eyelashes. Everywhere we walked her, people would stop us to comment on how stunning she was. Lady used to sleep outside my play pen when I was a baby and as I grew up she would follow me around the house and sit on my feet when I had my lunch and dinner so nobody could get between me and her. She had the sweetest personality and I miss her dearly.

What is the cutest thing you've ever seen a dog do?
My parents have two Chihuahuas named Zorro and Cici, and they’re a barrel of laughs. Zorro is teeny tiny but he loves stuffed toys. His favourite is a stuffed pizza slice that’s bigger than his head, but he happily trots around the house carrying it in his mouth and proudly presenting it to anyone he sees.

Who was your favorite dog to write about from this series?

That’s like asking me to pick a favourite child! I can’t do it and I love them all for different reasons. Camilla had the best internal thoughts and I had so much fun crafting her “voice.” Starr had the sweetest relationship with her owner and I loved writing the scenes with her and the characters bonding. Molly has the best attitude (well, worst depending on who you ask) and writing her body language and facial expressions was so much fun!

Who is your favorite celebrity dog?

I’m not sure if this counts but… Scooby Doo! I grew up watching the cartoon show from a very young age and I loved the idea of this big goofy dog who was afraid of everything. It also fostered my love of the mystery genre.

What is your favorite movie involving a dog?
Most of the ones that spring to mind are childhood favorites, but I did watch The Secret Life of Dogs when I was home last year with my family and it was really funny and sweet. I still love a good cartoon!

What is your favorite book, aside from your own, about dogs?
Absolutely and without a doubt, anything by Teri Wilson! I adored A Spot of Trouble which is a romcom take on 101 Dalmatians. It’s super funny and heartfelt, with loads of doggy hijinks. Unleashing Mr. Darcy is also fantastic and has been made into a Hallmark movie. Highly recommend her books.

Thanks to Stefanie for visiting with us and to Harlequin for sharing her book with our readers!
