Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Stunned when a car crash kills her best friend and renders her the guardian of the seriously injured teenaged Micah and his dog, kindergarten teacher and total cat lover Sally Foster seeks help from a most unlikely source, local dog trainer Tanner Dodge. As Micah slowly recovers his spirit and learns to deal with his disabilities, Sally and Tanner are forced to recognize their attraction for each other despite their deep-seated reluctance and fears. Traces of humor and a superabundance of canine and feline details are tempered by the more serious issues of grief, loss, and recovery in this thought-provoking romance. While likely to please fans of Smith's charming, pet-friendly contemporaries, published under the name Annie Kimberlin, it should also attract a new group of readers because of its broader scope and slightly mainstream feel. Smith lives in Gahanna, OH.

When Sally's best friend since childhood, Deb, asks Sally to care for her newborn child "if anything ever happens," Sally says of course...just as most of us would, feeling honored even though we know it would never come about. However, one day something does happen -- and Sally is to have the care of fourteen-year-old orphan Micah and his high-energy dog, Sophie. Sally loves Micah as her own and has watched him grow up, but she's at a loss for what to do for a grieving teenage boy, and she dislikes dogs. A lot. Always has. Her three cats don't like them either.

Luckily Sally has some marvelous friends (most of whom we've met in previous books (written under the pen name Annie Kimberlin), so they feel like friends to me, too) who help her with Micah and Sophie and introduce her to Tanner Dodge, trainer extraordinaire, "The God of All Things Dog."

Although the spine of HOME AGAIN says romance, there is so much more going on here. I'm amazed at how much Ms. Smith is able to put into 381 pages. I just wish there could have been so many more, as this was one of those books that I didn't want to end! Obviously there are pets in the story -- and these pets are not just window dressing; they are secondary characters who affect other characters and the storyline. We get to see a sort of "Disneyland for Cats," service dogs working and being trained, pet dogs going to all kinds of fun places and competing in shows and obedience, and some really big goldfish (find out Sally's secret for getting them so big and long-lived!

The previous review summed it up well but I just wanted to chime in since this is one of the most delightful and memorable novels of the last year. Smith's characters are so well drawn that they become real and the details about dog training are fascinating. This book truly was too short since I didn't want my sojourn into Hartley and visit with Sally, Michah, Tanner, and all the rest to end. Hopefully there will be a return visit soon.
