Standing Between Stephanie and Her Dream
Is One Hundred Pounds of Lovable Trouble
It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author's valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.
But Agnes's canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.
When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog...thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.
Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it's a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.
This was a cute fast read. I'm not much of a dog person but I still found the story enjoyable and it brought a few smiles to my face. There was a bit more depth to the story than I expected as Rhett and Stephanie both journeyed to the discovery that our plan and God's plan are not always the same but His plan is always best for us in the end. Both of the main characters were likable and their love story was cute albeit the fact that it was rather quick. The plot was entertaining though at times it felt a bit rushed especially at the end. Overall though I had fun reading it and if you're looking for a light read this may just be the book for you!
