Publisher's Summary

Abby has just arrived in Summerville, Ohio, with her placid Newfoundland, Bowser. She's reluctantly inherited her grandmother's coffee shop, but it's not long before she's brewing up trouble in the form of magical baked goods and steaming up her life with an exasperating college professor. And then there's Daisy, a Web code writer, and her hyperactive Jack Russell, Bailey. Her tightly wound world spins out of control when she discovers the chaos within and meets a mysterious dog trainer whose teaching style is definitely hands-on.Finally there's Shar, professor of ancient history at Summerville College, who wakes up one morning to find her neurotic dachshund, Wolfie, snarling at an implacable god sitting at her kitchen table, the first thing in her life she hasn't been able to footnote.What on earth is going on in this unearthly little town? It's up to Abby, Daisy, and Shar to find out before an ancient goddess takes over southern Ohio, and they all end up in the apocalyptic doghouse...

Great story

Would you consider the audio edition of Dogs and Goddesses to be better than the print version?

Not sure

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dogs and Goddesses?

Baking cookies and painting the mural

What about Renée Raudman’s performance did you like?

Renee' Raudman has done a great job. All the characters have distint voices, I always knew who was speaking.

If you could rename Dogs and Goddesses, what would you call it?

The title is fine as it is.

Any additional comments?

I am a big Jennifer Crusie fan. This book is a departure from her usual story's. However is was a very fun and laugh out loud story. I do not understand the bad reviews, except perhaps it just isn't their type of story. Not all readers like supernatural stories so maybe that is it. To enjoy this book just suspend the concept of disbelife for awhile. I was sad to see the story end and know I am going to listen Dogs and Goddesses again.

Escape reading

Okay, it's not great literature, but sometimes you want burgers and fries instead of haute cuisine. I'm a big dog fan so I couldn't resist a romance novel where each of the 4 heroines comes with her own canine companion.
