Paws for Love by Dana Mentink: A Novel for Dog Lovers- Love Unleashed, #3 (review by Cathy)


About the book:

The Only Thing Sweet About Jellybean Is His Name Jellybean the terrier is about to unleash some serious mayhem on the unsuspecting town of Albatross.

There’s no quiet on the set when over-the-hill screen star Lawrence Tucker brings his naughty terrier, Jellybean, on location to the beachside town of Albatross, California. When Jellybean develops a rapport with Tucker’s violin tutor, the painfully shy, socially awkward Misty Agnelli, her arm is twisted into minding the obnoxious animal. Trailing Jellybean leads Misty into the candy store of Bill Woodson, a handsome chocolatier with a painful secret and a three-year-old niece to raise.

Misty must deal with the unstable Tucker, a temperamental Jellybean, her budding feelings for the mysterious Bill, and the high-pressure atmosphere on the set. Though she wants nothing more than to flee, how can she tell her Grandma, Lawrence Tucker’s biggest fan, that she abandoned the star and his dog? It’s actors, animals, and antics galore when Jellybean gives his own heartwarming performance.
My review (5-stars):

Paws for Love is a sweet and humorous story with characters that you’ll love.

Jellybean is a rascal and my favorite character. The author may have based him on her own precious pup and that’s just a guess as I have no actual proof.

Now about those humans in the book, they’re warm, funny, a bit odd and flawed.

I loved Misty and Bill.  They each have obstacles to overcome as we all do. I admire and thank Dana Mentink for bringing focus to the challenges they faced.   There isn’t a character in the story  that I didn’t like, which made me enjoy it  even more.

This is a heartwarming  read  and one I highly recommend.

I received a complimentary copy of Paws for Love from the author and have given my honest opinion.
