What a 🏁winner of a story! Female lead empty nester Suzy lands in a difficult situation thanks to her former partner but she's inspired to do her utmost to right wrong and turn failure to success. When at her lowest a stray dog enters Suzy's life and her heart and, like magic, things start looking up.
I first gravitated to this book for two reasons: the Scottish setting on a picturesque small island off the western coast of Scotland and the author. The island's beauty and community spirit made me want to be there. And Fiona Gibson has a knack for creating women with spunk and determination. Suzy is one such woman with an unusual profession and a social conscience that refuses to take the easy way out when it could have disastrous effects on so many others.
The strangers drawn into Suzy's orbit by Scout, her scamp of a rescue dog, offer friendship, romance and growing respect. This story was so easy to read and love; I enjoyed it first to last chapter!😊
Thanks to Avon publishers and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book. I liked it so much that I just had to purchase it for my collection. This is my voluntary and honest review of a lovely read.
Nope. I am 20% in and I am seriously considering abandoning it.
Words, Words, Words...and not in a cohesive sequence of events. She was ten, now it was two years ago, now it's now. She was married, had kids, then divorced, then a long term relationship with an idiot (or she was an idiot for staying in the long term relationship), and now she is left holding the bag, trying to clean up the idiots mess. Then there is some guy who has a kid, and a GF that won't last (Obvi)and he is worried that he is emotionally unavailable because SOMETHING happened with his wife...but now he has to go see his Da who is on the Island where the woman is left with the mess...
Scout is the only character that I have any interest in at all and he just showed up. Scout gets two stars.
So on the plus side it was less then a dollar. On the minus side reading is supposed to be relaxing, entertaining, and enjoyable.
Enjoyed learning something about the Shetland Isles. Sorry I never made it there. Always love a book with a dog as a prime character!
The bright spot of the book is the dog, Scout. There needed to be more Scout. And Arthur, that young boy was terrific. The tagline “Two strangers, one dog. It’s complicated.” make you think there is some type of tug of war with Scout, but there isn’t. And, it’s not - complicated that is.
This should have been described as women’s literature or a “coming of middle-age” book rather than a rom-com. There is nothing romantic about this book. It wasn’t a bad story, just dry. The descriptions were vivid and it was interesting to read, but nothing what you’d expect from the description.
Thanks to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the early release copy and these are my honest opinions.
The Dog Share by Fiona Gibson is the first book I have read by this author.
Unfortunately it wasn’t what I was expecting. Tagged as funny and uplifting with a guy and girl sharing a dog on the cover I thought it would be very much a chick-lit/rom-com style book. It was much more do-over/fresh start with a very slow burn romance and the main dog sharing happening between two female friends.
Suzy and her flakey ex bought a thriving whiskey distillery which he ran into the ground, leaving her to pick up the pieces.
Music teacher Ricky and his son Arthur return to his island home to check on his elderly father Harry who worked at the distillery forever.
Told in dual POVs this is very much a family drama where Scout the scruffy lost dog helps heal hearts and join people together.
The story was nice, if not what I expected. The location and characters were well written and interesting. Overall 3 stars.
