I needed really light reading this week, and basically blogless Susan was kind enough to let me know last weekend when The Returns was free again.
IMPORTANT EDIT!!!! NO DOGS DIE ANYWHERE IN THIS BOOK!
Look at that cover. Talk about an angel!! Swoon… I’m a sucker for damp baby basset ears and those big ol’ freckled feet, and if you are a basset fan too, click over and click through to the author’s page. Her basset, also named Bentley – just like the basset in this book – is one handsome dude, with a wild … well, click over and see if you see it!!
Oh, it’s a silly story. Think All Dogs Go to Heaven with a slightly adult twist, and instead of an animated movie, it’s a book. And it’s set in New Orleans, so what’s not to love? Sigh. I’m a sucker for shrimp and grits and beignets too. Anyway, if you don’t take yourself or your reading too seriously and like dogs, you might enjoy it. It does talk a lot about angels, God and heaven as the cover art suggests, so if you prefer to avoid such, consider yourself warned.
Now, I’m doing some rather heavy reading for book club, The Gift of Fear. It’s yet another book I wouldn’t have sought out on my own, but the woman coordinating this month’s selection is a dear, sweet, AWESOME friend, and she is passionate about this book. It’s also our way to honor our fellow League member whose niece is still missing. Life is going on, but Alexis is not forgotten. I got rather misty at work today when I saw a Facebook post… She was named captain of the volleyball team before her disappearance, and the team they played this week honored her with the sweetest pink roses…
