Publisher's Summary

Juliet’s been in hiding - from her family, from her broken life, but most of all from the fact that Ben’s not around anymore. Her mother, Diane, has run out of advice. But then she insists Juliet look after her elderly Labrador and it becomes apparent that Coco the dog might actually be the one who can rescue her daughter. Especially when it leads to her walking dogs for a few other locals too, including a spaniel, Damson, who belongs to a very attractive man.... Before she knows it, Juliet realizes she has somehow become the town’s unofficial pet-sitter. A job which makes her privy to the lives and secrets of everyone whose animals she’s caring for.

- Ann "Dog fanatic, loves brit Lit, Classics, Irish Lit, and an Occasional smart chic lit. Audible obsessed. Love my dogs like the good life."

Great Read - makes you appreciate what you have

Similar to Lucy Dillon's previous books - easy to listen to, funny, dog friendly etc. Jilly Bond is the perfect narrater for this style of writing. The charaters are all likeable and real and the dogs just bring it all together.

Its the story of widow Juliet's 12 month grieving and how a pushy mother, disfunctional sister, crazy neighbour, a very charming Irishman and a few dogs help her see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Its a really lovely feel good book which softens the pain of loss whilst still keeping it real and funny. Its how we'd like it to be.
