    Loved it

    4.5 Stars for Love at First Bark This is only the second book I have read in this series and I need to go back and read books 1 and 2 because I’m falling in love with everything about these books, I love the plots, I love that they are set around rescue shelters and I love the characters and what about the puppies who can forget them.... This book starts off a bit sadder than the previous book I have read, Mia is recently widowed bringing up her 7 year old son Ollie and she finds herself turning more and more to Ollie’s godfather Ben. Mia and Ben has a connection way back in their college days but a mix up lead them in different directions but is the timing right now ..... Love at First Bark is an emotional read, it has adorable characters as well as some adorable puppies that we get to meet when someone dumps a dozen Border Collie pup in the park and the team from High Grove Animal Shelter get to work rounding them up and let’s not forget the deaf mother and her puppy that Mia fosters only to fall deeply in love with both of them. A second change romance with the perfect mix of love, humour and sadness make this a great read.

    Romance and rescue animals

    This is the fourth book in the Rescue Me series. I have read the first book but I haven't read the second or third (yet) and don't think that it is necessary to read them in order. You'd miss a bit of backstory, but nothing serious. Like the other book in the series that I did read, I love that there is a lot of on screen time for the animals and time is spent exploring both the fun, as well as the work involved in adopting a rescue animal. Also like the first book in the series, the book explored the themes of love and loss. Mia, the heroine has just lost her estranged husband and is trying to keep her son and her life on a even keel while she deals with the fallout. Helping her is her husband's best friend, Ben, who is her son's godfather and who has secretly been in love with her for years. With her ex's death, Ben finally sees a chance with Mia and is determined to let her know how he feels. I enjoyed this book, but I felt like there was something missing. Maybe it was that necessary spark between Ben and Mia. I felt like we were told about their feelings but I never felt the connection. I also felt like they didn't have enough actual conversation or interaction until much later in the book. The rescue dogs and supporting characters were adorable though and I liked both Ben and Mia separately, I just didn't fully buy their romance. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book from Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Debbie Burns is a new author to me so I haven’t read any previous books in the series based around the High Grove Animal Shelter. This is Mia Chambers and Ben Thomas’s story. Ben has been in love with Mia for years even though she married his best friend; in fact he is her son’s godfather. When her estranged husband dies, Ben steps in to help out. This is a story of love, romance and friendship. Throw in some cute animals and you are in for an entertaining story. It is a story of hope, of healing and moving on. Well written, I loved how important a part the dogs from the shelter played. Although angsty at times I found myself smiling and cheering Mia and Ben on to their happily ever after
