Publisher's Summary

If you lost both your spouse and your dog to cancer within weeks of each other, but you were sadder about the dog, would you tell anyone? Maybe your closest friends. Unfortunately, Jane Bailey's closest friends are on the other side of the country. That's where Jane plans to go now that she's free to leave Philadelphia, the too cold, beachless, street taco-deficient city her husband dragged her to six years ago. But with no job prospects in her hometown of San Diego, Jane is roped into helping out temporarily at her uncle's southwestern small-town B&B. En route to her new role as innkeeper and breakfast chef, she finds a stray at a rest stop. With her heart in pieces from the loss of her dog, she's determined not to let this mutt worm its way into her affections. She's also determined to have next-to-no interaction with the B&B's irritating guests, and the even more annoying handyman who lives next door. Can Jane keep her sanity - and her secret that she's not really a grieving widow - while trying to achieve her dream of getting back to the place she thinks is home? Fans of Lolly Winston's Good Grief will enjoy Rescue Me, Maybe.

Main character seems to hate everyone

Cute premise for the story, but not well written or narrated.

The main character is judgmental, rude, disrespectful, and thinks everyone she meets is an "idiot" or "jerk". It is impossible for me to relate to someone with so much hate in her heart. If these were temporary feelings as a result of losing her husband and dog to cancer, it would be understandable, but she was like this long before. I have two hours left to listen and have been forcing myself to keep picking it up because I thought she might become a better person, but at the moment, she still sucks. I'm not sure how the other characters see good in her and want to spend time with her. She is a miserable person.

Unfortunately, the narrator has a perfect voice for a depressed, angry, judgmental person. I don't think I'll choose this author or narrator again.

Almost a good book

The story began with a promising start. Both dogs were engaging. Then the narrative seemed to drag. It was difficult to keep in touch with the heroine and the main characters. At the end, I did not really care.
