At Midnight: Lainee Cole, Lynn Crandall, Rena Koontz
Within this book titled At Midnight you will meet several characters whose lives will drastically change at the stroke of Midnight unless they are able to prevent the inevitable. Story one features Madison Lockhart who finds herself in a desperate situation when her car named: Baby, the Ford Mustang decides that she’s tired and needs repairs and has left her stranded. Nowhere to go she comes what appears to be a deserted farmhouse all locked up. But, she’s resourceful, small and finds her way inside house in a unique and clever way: The doggie door. Like Goldilocks from the three bears she manages to find her way to a bed that seemed fit for more than a princess or a Big Bear and was fast asleep when the owner of the farmhouse decided to spend the night there not realizing someone was in his bed. Outside the farmhouse was a mangy dog that would later be named Casanova, and Chance the owner of the farmhouse, whose Gran left it to him was about out meet tenacious, perky and definitely a force to be reckoned with Maddie.
Checking her out and calling her Sleeping Beauty sets the tone for their banter but Maddie is smart and the best that he can suggest is that she stays there for the night. Learning more about her he would realize that she is a dog trainer and wants to create programs in Public Relations and that she is a self-employed dog trainer. What he does not know is that her father received an application from his grandmother who called the farm Green Acres. Maddie was supposed to find Chance and report to her father but did not at least for now. Casanova steals the show in this story and loves to be around Maddie but Chance still had not gain the dog’s trust.
When Mrs. Potter comes to ask if he can house some animals on the arm he hesitated but with Maddie’s help he just might succeed and change his mind. Maddie began helping him tend to the animals on the farm and he tended to having her car fixed and then she would be on her way to see her Aunt for her help in deciding which direction to take her life and her career. But, things spiral out of control when she explains about the classes she wants to create, teaching the mother animals to wean their newborns, organized classes for most trainers like pups to be at least four weeks old because they should have had all of their shots.
Connie Shull from Centerville Animal Shelter approached him and stated she hoped that he would follow in his grandmother’s footsteps and help out some visitors. In the back of his mind he wondered why everyone wanted to tell him what to do and where his life should go. Two dogs came to stay with them and she named one Bolt and one Milo teaching Chance how to get the dogs to sit and lying down. The research into teaching dogs these commands is a strong part of chapter 5. Things seems to be going great until Chance thinks about Karl Duncan and his offer thinking he wanted to control the purse strings and take away his ability to control his own farm and business. What happens when he meets him and learns that he’s Maddie’s father? An ending that might be a beginning or will when the truth comes out and he learns about her father will he think she used him to get what her father wanted? Will he realize that she might be the right one for him as taking care of the animals, working together as one and getting a feel for his own farm and Maddie just might turn out to be the perfect move. As the story draws to a close the author enlightens readers into what Chance decides to do but who will be the final Casanova? The Dog or Chance? Sometimes things happen for a reason and even though Chance was not happy about what his grandmother did without his knowledge he might just wind up if he stops being stubborn and realize sometimes when someone goes behind your back the answers you seek might be right in front of your face. This is a story of hope, faith, trust and family loyalty and love.
