    Sweet

    A Dog Called Valentine isn't a very deep story but it sure was fun, with a dog that is just about the best thing ever.  He stole my heart before I was even a fifth of the way in!  Shane also had a few heart-tugging moments and I definitely understand his hesitancy in getting too involved with anyone (whether they have 4 legs or 2) but Lily's enthusiasm and need to make sure that Valentine gets a happy home is pretty compelling.   I think there was a lot more opportunity to delve into some of the family dynamics and the romance between Lily and Shane.  Readers will get a satisfying and enjoyable read but I think there is so much material there between Shane's issues and Lily's family drama.  Occasionally the timeline got a little wonky too but I can easily forgive that.   With an adorable matchmaking dog (and grandma) and a sweet ending (predictable but cute), Snopek delivers a lovely little story that is perfect for a pretty day sitting in the shade ... or a cool day under a cozy blanket :)   (Overall a solid 3.5 Stars) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

    Very enjoyable

    Loved it! A sweet tale of how a couple is brought together by a dog named Valentine. Lilly is volunteering at the shelter when Valentine is dropped off. She decides to take him in as a foster until his forever home can be found. She never expected him to be as unruly as he turned out to be. Knowing he would never get adopted without some training she sets out to teach him as best as she can. Problem is Valentine only seems to listen to the stoic stranger they stumbled upon in the park. Turns out that stranger is a former K9 officer who has recently been injured as well as losing his partner. Shane has vowed to never become attached to anyone or anything again. Can he help Lilly train Valentine and not fall for them both? Recommended read

    Loved, loved this heart warming romance of how a dog brings this couple together. Valentine, a foster dog will have you laughing out loud with his antics. Lily is over her head with Valentine, when she meets Shane at the park. Shane is dealing with his own past and grief of loosing his partner, but finally agrees to help Lily, since this is only temporary. Loved this story, you will be laughing out loud throughout the book. It shows how much unconditional love a dog can give you. Shane and Lily are just so cute together. I highly recommend this book!!

    Fall in love with the big-hearted mutt

    I’m going to be working through the story hangover left after this book for a long time to come. It’s not really an emotional roller-coaster, there aren’t the big changes of direction I expect from that, but it pack one heck of a punch. I kind of think I’m feeling what “punch drunk” really means. Lily and Shane are adorable together. Add Valentine into the mix and you’ve got a lot of chaos to deal with, but still completely adorable. I’d be hard pressed to pick a favorite character from this book. And yet Valentine stole the show for me every time I saw him. Anyone who’s ever loved a rambunctious rescue will see themselves in parts of this story and will fall in love with the big-hearted mutt and his people just like I did. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book through NetGalley.

    Sweet Romance

    A Dog Called Valentine by Roxanne Snopek Neither lily nor Shane are in the market for a relationship though their friends and relatives seem dedicated to finding them the perfect person to make their lives complete. Shane is dealing with the probably loss of being an active duty policeman after being injured on the job and losing his K-9 partner as he rehab’s his grandmother’s home and gets on with his life. Lily is enmeshed in her mother’s NGO even though she would much rather be doing interior design and her new focus is to give back by taking in a foster dog. Well, the foster dog is a handful and a half that has her chasing Valentine hither and yon and right into the arms of Shane who knows more about dogs and training them than anyone knew. The two come to an agreement to get Valentine trained in time for an event that will find him a new forever home and while they work together they will pretend to have a relationship to keep their families and friends off their backs. This was a sweet feel-good story that had two worthy wonderful characters find their HEA. It was somewhat predictable but a fun way to spend the afternoon. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
