    Keep a box of tissues handy!!!

    Atticus: A Woman's Journey with the World's Worst Behaved Dog is a standalone book. If you've read other books by this author, you know she writes a fabulous hot, steamy, page turning book. This is going to be nothing like them, with the exception of page turning. This book really hit home in a lot of ways, I found a lot of similarities between Hazel and myself, the journey she went through to find herself. Be prepared this book is going to make you ugly cry, I would keep a box of Kleenex's handy. I was more prepared for the comedic stunts of a wayward dog. I can relate, I have a Newfoundland that sounds like it is Atticus's brother from another mother. Good to know I'm not the only one with a destructive attention seeking, bratty dog! The book will make you laugh and cry. The book is very well written and the story line flowed, it was impossible to put down- surprising since I only read romance. There is a minute amount in the book, but it's not the focus and something that doesn't happen until way into the book. I loved the friendship that developed between Hazel and Oley, that then included Bernard and others into the fold. Watching the dynamic between Oley and Hazel was very interesting as well as how Atticus helped change Hazel's life, and helped her to find herself. It is obvious the thought and attention that went into this book, as well as the depth of the book. As the relationships evolve (not romantic type) and you learn more of the backstory, it was hard to not despise Oley's children. All the other characters you meet it is hard not to like them. The characters and their interactions felt very real and the situations realistic. This book was outstanding and was an easy to give 5 star rating. Though I hope no more are written like this because I used over half a box of Kleenex ugly crying. You've been forewarned! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!

    An emotional story of self discovery

    Oh my word. Not quite sure where to start. What a story! So many feels. The journey begins with down on her luck Hazel Roundtree, who has no home after her cheating husband threw her out. She’s living on a friend’s couch, bar tending, drinking, smoking and generally wasting her life away. After coming across a puppy stuck in a ditch with wire wrapped round him, her life changes very much for the better. Finding a vet and helping him to help her, befriending a homeless man, getting thrown out of her friend’s apartment and losing her job. Whilst the latter two might not seem like good things, they are in fact the push that Hazel needs to sort herself out. Hazel discovers that life with Atticus is much better, more fulfilling and so worth living. A story of self discovery. A story with so many emotions. I swear I don’t think I’ve laughed out loud so much whilst reading, Atticus was so so funny. There were of course some extremely emotional scenes and I did spend the last 10% of the book in tears. What a wonderful heartfelt story. Most definitely one of my favourite reads of 2018. Sawyer Bennett you never cease to amaze me. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest honest review.

    Amazing

    WOW did I ever love this book! I'd love to give it more than 5 stars. The parts written from the point of view of Atticus were definitely my favorite parts. This is an amazing story of a woman's journey from a pretty bad place in her life to a very fulfilling life and her own HEA. Everything starts to turn around after she stumbles upon a little bundle of fur that would ultimately change her life. The story is packed with emotion. I laughed (a lot!), I cried (dang it Ms. Bennett), I cheered. Every character in this story is special but Atticus definitely stole the show. This book needs to be on everyone's must read list. I highly recommend it.

    WOW! Best book of 2018!

    This is seriously one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read and is definitely a top favorite of 2018. Sawyer Bennett has long been one of my favorite authors but this book is unlike anything of hers that I’ve read in the past. Atticus comes into Hazel’s world and just changes her life. She learns to love herself and begins to thrive. Her relationships with Oley and Bernard are wonderful to see and watch them grow. Atticus himself was obviously the star of the show. I loved the chapters from his point of view. He was so unrepentant in his mischief but he sure loved his humans. There is so much about this book that is awesome and wonderful. I can’t say enough good things. It made me laugh, it made me cry (major cry headache going on), it just flat out made me FEEL. I love it and you will to. I highly recommend this book to everyone! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

    Loved it

    5 Star Review of Atticus (A Woman’s Journey With The World’s Worst Behaved Dog) by S Bennett   They say dog is “man’s” best friend and the story of Atticus shows how true this is. Atticus is a story of love and hope. Hazel Roundtree has hit rock bottom, when she stumbles across an injured dog. Her decision to help the dog changes her life, a decision that saves Hazel from herself and brings joy and chaos into her life. Atticus had me in tears, both happy and sad. It also had me snort laughing at times thanks to his antics and the mischief Atticus gets up to. Hazel is living day to day, struggling to survive, often through a vodka induced haze. However with Atticus by her side, Hazel faces her life and together they explore the journey that is their life together. As I have come to expect from a Sawyer Bennett book, it was well extremely well written and the story line amazing. I was invested from the start. Atticus is a unique book about love and family, family that does not have to be related by blood, but family nevertheless. A story about how an act of kindness can change the course of your life forever.
