In this romantic adventure, anything is paws-ible when a single shop owner makes a connection with her new vet.
Boutique owner Sophie Daniels certainly isn't looking to adopt a dog the day veterinarian Chase Lewis convinces her to take in Comet. A rambunctious puppy with a broken leg may not be the best choice for a first-time pet owner. And house calls from the handsome doctor—her high school sweetheart who's just moved back to Sweetwater Springs—may not be the best choice for her heart either.
Chase has come home to help his nephew but finds that he's forgotten just how much he enjoys small-town life. However, sooner or later, he's going to have to face the past and his unresolved feelings for Sophie. Now that Comet needs both their help, Chase is going to let the four-legged matchmaker work his canine magic. Then Chase will prove to Sophie that first love is even better the second time around.
Includes the bonus novella A Wedding on Lavender Hill!
Chase and Sophie used to be in love when they were both 18 years old. However, Sophie suffered a devastating injury while climbing and due to her tragedy, she drove Chase away. He went to college and then veterinary school. When Chase's brother is jailed, he moves back to Sweetwater Springs to be their for his sister-in-law and young nephew.
One day while driving Sophie hits a dog and hurries the dog to the only vet in town - Chase. Although quite concerned about the dog it does not take but a moment for Sophie and Chase to realize that the spark that died out years ago still burns just as hot.
While Chase is there for any sick or injured pet that comes his way, he is also there for his nephew. What is more is that the dog that he treated for Sophie still needs care, and Sophie just might be the best one to foster the animal. This helps to bring Sophie and Chase into contact quite a bit, giving the both of them ample opportunity to explore their growing feelings, thus giving their love a second chance.
Although Sophie and Chase may indeed want to be together once again, there are obstacles that are in the way. Will what they feel for one another again be enough to overcome these difficult obstacles? I enjoyed this touching book by Annie Rains and have also loved the previous books in this series. Sweetwater Springs and its residents are absolutely wonderful and it was nice to spend a few hours in this sweet story.
Many thanks to Forever and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
