I recently started a book challenge list that asked me to read a book with the word “dog” in the title and to my delight when searching the NetGalley list The Dog Walker’s Diary came up first.
Daniel Ashe is a literary agent who has never fell in love and is looking for an awesome story to get his career moving. Oh, and unbeknownst to him, he is looking for a dog walker for his dog’s Sparks and Eddie.
Annie Doherty is a beguiling, red-headed, Irish dog walker/witty short story writer who is Daniel’s unexpected nemesis.
Daniel and Annie’s story is enjoyable with the lure of attraction and intrigue. The witty repertoire between the two is refreshing and Annie’s stories written on behalf of the dogs are hilarious. The mystery thrown into the story was a surprise, and I really thought the other characters worked well. Overall, I read it in one session and thought the humor was energizing. I actually laughed out loud several times!
Thank you to Ms. Donahue and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review the book.
