Publisher's Summary

When a hurricane blows through town and threatens the future of Olivia Clark's animal shelter, she publicizes her desperate plea for help to the masses. Aid comes from a surprising source: Chloe Homestead, Olivia's ex-girlfriend from 13 years ago and the only girl Olivia has ever loved. Chloe, a self-made millionaire, offers to finance and manage the shelter's repairs and operations - a gesture Olivia is in no position to refuse.
Working intimately together to provide loving care to homeless animals, Olivia struggles to keep her composure in Chloe's fun and flirty presence. As Olivia's walls start to crumble, the past catches up to them. Chloe has a dark secret that she's been carrying around for 13 years.
Will Chloe's secret threaten the future of the shelter and the relationship she has worked so hard to restore?
This book delves into the selfless world of dogs, animals, puppies, animal shelters, philanthropy, and family.

This story should have been emotional powerful and moving. But all the parts that should have been emotional or dramatic were filled with whiplashing emotional and moral stances that just left me wondering what any of them were really feeling. Honestly it felt like it should have been a love story between Chloe and the brother with Olivia as the complicated emotional issue that kept them apart. Chloe even says, He made me strong and stand up for myself while your kindness and control made me weaker everyday I was with you.
The big confrontations throughout the end were also bizarrely carried out. apart from the above statement Chloe basically said that Olivia never really loved her and just transfered her pity into love. And yet her love is real? She entered that confrontation like someone trying to make a stand and cut ties not someone trying to explain a difficult and hurtful time to someone she loved and was supposedly trying to win back. At every turn it was made to be Olivia's fault, everything was her fault and everyone else was just paying for her failures.
And Melanie was a character that confused me as well she kept giving wildly differing advice and attitudes towards love, bisexuality, commitment, and herself.
So just confused and a bit frustrated at the end of this one.

don't waste a credit plz trust me

the narrator is bad along w the audio quality to much background noise. you can even hear her phone vibrate n receive email. then there are massive blank audio spaces it's not the narrator taking a pause the audio just stops for long long pauses in the middle of the story with out even an announcement of a new chapter so your left wondering what's going on n wondering if you missed something. the actual story isn't good either way to much detail in some spots n not enough in others. I'm confused about all the rakey treatment talk to seems more like an advertisement than moving the story forward. I've listened to over a 100+ audio books some horrible some great but this is the first one I haven't been able to finish I finally gave up on chapter 15. plz don't waste ur time or money

Very poor performance and sound quality

Would you try another book written by Suzie Carr or narrated by Clara Nipper?

Definitely not by the same narrator and possibly not by the same author.

Would you be willing to try another book from Suzie Carr? Why or why not?

Yes I would try one more.

What didn’t you like about Clara Nipper’s performance?


What character would you cut from A New Leash on Life?


Any additional comments?

The twist was totally obvious from very early on

Just a beautiful story wonderfully told

I first came across this book on kindle a little while ago and loved every page if it. So I was thrilled to see this reimagining of it.

The relationship between Olivia Clark and Chloe Homestead is like poetry. Suzie's customary enjoyable, lyrical narrative is lovingly maintained in this unabridged version, which preserves the enjoyment of the original story and makes an essential addition to your library.

Buy it now!!!!
