Fall in love with a little help from man's best friend in New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay's contemporary romance debut. Mackenzie "Mac" Harris fled her hometown of Bluff Point, Maine, after being left at the altar--and seeking solace in the arms of her best friend's off-limits brother. Now, seven years later, she's back to attend her best friend's wedding--safe, or so she thinks, from the mistakes of her youth. But Gavin Tolliver has never forgotten the woman who has always held his heart. And when Mac rescues a stray puppy named Tulip, only Gavin, the town's veterinarian, can help. With a little assistance from Tulip, Gavin vows to make Mac realize that their feelings are more than just puppy love...
The opening chapter of this book had me laughing! I knew then that I was going to enjoy Mac and her friends. Mac is going home for the first time since she was left at the altar and is still embarrassed by it. I also like this small Maine town that was very nicely described in this book. mac is the type of character that I always enjoy reading about , funny , tough but lovable. Gavin is a veterinarian and seems quite interested in Mac , he also sounds very dreamy and I found myself wondering why Mac was not dating him in High School….. Then to make this book an even more enjoyable experience , enter Tulip a runaway/stray puppy who just steals my heart! Mac takes a bit longer to fall in love with Tulip but eventually the bond is formed. I appreciated the author writing about animal cruelty in this story and how it is intolerable, I know that it is a tough subject to introduce in this type of book but kudos to Jenn McKinlay for doing an excellent job! There were quite a few scrapes and scuffles involving Mac that were hilarious, I found myself laughing out loud a few times! All in all a very enjoyable, heartwarming book. I am happy that this is the first book in the series and there will be more to follow.
