Touching story that takes place during the holidays, although they have very little to do with the story line. Animal lovers will especially enjoy this book. I'm not familiar with this author but after reading Pupcakes, I'm anxious to read more of her work.

Overall, this story is charming as all get out. It’s not at all a Christmas novel, though. Maybe the last 15 mins have to do with Christmas. Despite that, it’s a quaint story of a woman and her pug.
Amy McFadden has such a strange way of reading, it’s distracting at times. Her consonants are so hard at the ends of her words it makes hearing her Ts and Ps feel like slaps in the face after a while. She also sounds as times like she wants to be doing anything else but reading this book. Her downward inflections frequently betray the fairly upbeat sentences in Noblin’s story.
As for the writing, it’s predictable but not overly so. If I took a shot of alcohol every time Annie wrote “Bridie let out a breath she didn’t know she’d been holding” or “Bridie bit her bottom lip” I’d be dead by now. Many details are repeated or extraneous and it occasionally slows down the story.
