No. of Pages: 394
Date of US Publication: 5 April, 2022
My Rating: 5 Stars
This book reminded me to not judge a book by its cover - when I originally saw this one, I didn’t like the cover, and figured it was romantic fluff and wasn’t interested whenever I saw it (in my goodreads, instagram, and facebook reading groups). Shame on me (or, really, for me), because I could have discovered this amazing book months ago. I loved this novel; it drew me in, broke my heart, put it back together again, made me cry, and made me absolutely love the cast of characters in this wonderful, wonderful story.
Thoughts while reading -
I completely adored Six Thirty right from his entrance into the novel. He’s up there in my favorite fictional dogs list.
This reminds me a bit, writing wise, of John Irving’s writing.
I will never again decide to not read a book, based on a more cutesy casual cover.
An absolute recommendation.
