This was a really enjoyable read. It was the concept of getting a dog that drew me to this book, and although Buddy did feature in the book a bit, I felt he could have played an even bigger role. However, the plot was still enough to keep me gripped throughout. Kerry was a great leading lady and it was amazing to see her grow and recover from her husband's adultery during the story. Kerry's husband's storyline was interesting in itself, to see how he accepted his mistakes and learned to live with them. What I liked about the other love interests was that it wasn't obvious who Kerry would end up with right until the end - James, Harvey or even her (ex)husband. I give this book 9/10.
