Synopsis: Claire Cook's beguilingly original Ready to Fall struck a vibrant chord with its "perky take on midlife angst" (Publishers Weekly). In Must Love Dogs she gives us a contemporary Everywoman in a big rollicking south-of-Boston Irish family-a zany novel with the flavor of Nora Ephron, Susan Isaacs, and Jeanne Ray's Julie and Romeo.
Forty-year-old Sarah Hurlihy, a divorced preschool teacher whose life is her classroom, is about to meet her first date in more than a decade. It was the "Loves Dogs" that hooked her in the personal ad, and now she is scanning her neighborhood café for the man with a yellow rose. And find him she does, but he's the last person on earth she expects to find there . . .
In Must Love Dogs, hilarious missteps abound. Sarah's widowed father, Billy Hurlihy, with six adult kids, is seeing at least two women. And he and Sarah aren't the only Hurlihys with romantic challenges. Her brother Michael, for one, has a rocky marriage that Mother Teresa, his St. Bernard, just may put over the edge. With self-deprecating humor and a laugh-out-loud view of the way we live now, including shar pei/Labrador crosses and a transgenerational body-piercing experience, Must Love Dogs is a perfect beach read that melts the heartache of dating with warmth and humor.
From the Author: Hi Everybody! I decided to turn Must Love Dogs into a series because my truly fabulous readers kept asking for more from these characters. I'm so glad I listened to you, because I'm having a blast spending more time with them. So far I've written three Must Love Dogs books:Must Love Dogs (Book 1)Must Love Dogs: New Leash on Life (Book 2)Must Love Dogs: Fetch You Later (Book 3)And I'm happy to say I've got plans for at least two more books in this series. To be sure you're the first to hear about the release of the next one, go to ClaireCook.com and sign up for my email list. If you'd like to know more about how the Must Love Dogs movie really happened, you might want to read my nonfiction book Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way). xxxxxClaire
