Book Description

A novella. Approximately 77 pages.

Candice Gunderson and her purebred pooch, Phoebe, are driving through the Indiana countryside on their way to an appointment with a dog breeder. If all goes as planned, the “meeting” with Charles the Conqueror will result in a lovely litter of puppies.

Unfortunately, Candice is hopelessly lost, the GPS in her car has gone haywire, and she needs to find a bathroom in the worst way. The pair pulls up alongside a little house in hopes of finding some helpful inhabitants.

What she finds is Bull Ramsey, a cute farmer, and his mutt, Jack, who is more than happy to have a “meeting” of his own with Phoebe.

Candice is determined to maintain control of the situation and prove she is an independent woman. A few unexpected events and mischievous farm animals won’t interfere with her plans. She can handle this, right?

~ * ~

Dear Reader: Are you on your way to sit through another soccer practice? Looking forward to a soak in the tub? Did you just finish an intense read and your mind is a bit frazzled? Well, I’d like to suggest this sweet romance novella for your reading pleasure. Off Leash is a light, quick read full of silliness, dogs, budding romance, and maybe even a goat or two. The story is 27,000 words or approximately 80 print pages. You have just enough time for that.

Enjoy.

~ Jenna

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, but hard to like protagonist December 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a free gift in exchange for an honest review.

Here's my problem-- there's a lot of things to like about this little novella. I love bichons and own one, and Phoebe was downright cute! There are several moments that really work-- like when Candice meets Mark's mom for the first time, when she starts really figuring out what is important to her, etc. But then there are the moments that didn't really work for me. I never really liked Candice that much. I figured out by the end that she was making this journey to figure out who she was, but by the time I started to warm up to her, 80% of the book was over. I was still wondering why Mark put up with her for so many hours. He's a good guy, I know, but most good guys I know would have been nice to her but have been very turned off by her snobbish attitude and overall ridiculous behavior towards someone who has been bending over backwards for her.

I almost think this book would have worked better not as a romance, but an exploration of this character and why she made the journey she did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and fun July 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Romance is not normally my choice of literature, but this really was a fun read. It is a well-written, charming little tale that skips along with plenty of colour and smiles. I liked the characters and setting very much, and enjoyed the inclusion of the goats, dogs and cats. I highly recommend this little story for an afternoon's read. I have no hesitation in awarding it 5 stars. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, light, whimsical romance July 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Normally I read more intense, gritty, hard-hitting tales, but I was looking for something light and fun. Off Leash is smooth, fluid and playful, and the author presents some amusing topics with tact, grace and style. Tightly edited and cleanly written, this is an enjoyable read with likeable characters in a charming little romance that delivers everything it promises. If you're looking for something short and very sweet, this is it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Feel-Good Read December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Off Leash was such a cute short story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

This story was fast paced, heartwarming and most importantly fun. I don't think there was one moment while reading that I felt the story was a single bit boring or unnecessary and even though it was only quite short, it was a refreshing and much needed break from some of the heavier reads I have experienced lately.

It's obvious from the start that the main character, Candice, lives in a world without much responsibility and where almost everything seems to be too perfect on the outside. When fate brings her to meet Mark, a farmer who is content with living the simple life and who has an entire town of people willing to put their life on hold for him when the situation arises, Candice begins to realise that her life really isn't as perfect as it seems.

At first I wasn't a big fan of Candice's character because she seemed to be a bit of a snob, but when you think about the world she comes from and the fake people she's been surrounded with it's easy to realise why she acts the way she does.

On the other hand, Mark is an instantly likeable character who seems to be a genuinely caring guy who knows what's important in life.

In the space of just one day, Mark teaches Candice a huge life lesson and in the end the reader is left feeling satisfied and as if they have become a part of the small community that the story centres around.

Overall I loved this story and just wished that there could have been a little bit more of it! It's a truly fun novella to read when you feel like a bit of time-out and will leave you with that feel-good vibe at the end.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, despite a few of Candice's treatments toward Mark/Bull, but the end was the icing on the cake! Great message and very sweet, realistic ending! Perfect length...read it in two hours!

5.0 out of 5 stars A LIGHT PIECE OF FLUFF April 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for something serious, this book is not for you. I was attracted to the book, since for the last 17+ years, I have shared my life with one or more Bichons, all of whom have a place in my heart. And, yes, the thought did cross my mind that the heroine's precious Bichon should have been put on her leash earlier in the story. But, in the end, I reminded myself that this was a modern day fairy tale, with some of the activities symbolic of what I thought was the underlying message to be true to yourself, enjoy life and recognize the people who care for you. Okay, that is a rather serious message, but it is packaged in a lighthearted romp.

Really enjoyed this short story. The main characters were likeable. The feel of small town America came alive with the antics of the farm, the animals and the neighbors who came to check out the situation.
