In Faux Paws, St. Claire brings us three main characters (two and four-legged), newly arrived in Bitter Bark, North Carolina, who are all at a crossroads in their lives. I love the way she explores the challenges, possibilities, and decisions facing each of them. Yes, even Clementine, who is definitely in the running for my favorite rescue pooch in this series. Her journey is a hard one that had me reaching for tissues more than once. Don't worry, she definitely gets her happily ever after.
I love the chemistry between Ayla and Theo but I also enjoy the fact that St. Claire takes her time with them, gradually building a friendship before introducing deeper feelings. They have some fundamental differences to work through before those deeper feelings can take root. I always enjoy the emotional layering that occurs in these stories, along with the slow burn. The relationships that form are very realistic, with humor and conflict along the way while the main characters are complex people I'd enjoy knowing in real life. In fact, they're so realistic that I'm still halfway convinced they're all living happy lives in a lovely little North Carolina town.
The extended families - including the matchmaking Dogmothers a/k/a one Irish Gramma and one Greek Yiayia - all add an emotional richness to the story along with more than a few laugh-out-loud moments. If you're a fan of The Dogmother series, as well as The Dogfather series, you'll enjoy catching up with some of your favorite characters in this book, while also welcoming new babies and pups to the clan. For readers who are new to these books, you should know that you can jump in with any of them and feel right at home.
If you enjoy family-centric contemporary romance with humor, sweet (but deeply emotional) romance, characters you'll want to be friends with, and rescue dogs who will flat-out steal your heart, this book is for you.
Ayla Hollis discovers on her wedding day that her fiance is a carbon copy of her cheating father and wants no part of it. She runs to her safe space, an animal rescue, where we learn that Alya has an unusual talent, she can communicate with the animals and sees what they see. She is an animal psychic. Ayla arrives at Bitter Bark with nothing but her broken heart and no ideas what to do next.
Theo Santorini had it all - until his engineering job overseas fell through and his girlfriend of many years said he wasn’t what she wanted. Coming to Bitter Bark was his chance to regroup and think about his future. Enter a rescue pup with issues thrown into his arms at a convenience store and the Dogmothers looking for another successful match.
This book has a blend of contemporary and romantic suspense with lots of dogs. Can Theo put logic aside and believe in Ayla’s gift of being able to communicate with animals? Both Theo and Ayla have been burned in the romance department, can they learn that love is still out there? After all the Dogmothers have a perfect record.
Although part of a series one can read them out of order. If read in order you will enjoy spending time again with the Kilcannons, Mahoneys and Santorinis.
If you are new to the Dogfather/dogmother books, I would strongly suggest you get Book 1 - it is free, and read it to get a fuller background. Another warning....you won't be able to quit at Book 1 and this is Book 8. They are all that good. Strong, independent sexy hunks for male main characters, and attractive, strong, female main characters. The stories are always good and different from each other. The dog connection is what brings them all together.
This story is all about Clementine and how she gets her people and forever home. Sweet dog that you just love. The cover gives you a picture of who Clem is and her favorite spot in the world with just reason. This dog is so lovable and very real. As with any abused person, you cheer when they get out of their worst spot in life and you will do the same for Clemmie. Great dog.
This story has a dog being mistreated and how he is rescued and the bad guy dealt with. A very satisfying "get" to the bad guy and profitable for the female main character. Of course the grannies are up to their mischief and there is love all around. Get the tissue because at the end there is a very moving addition to the family. It is all so good. It leaves you feeling good and looking forward to the next one. I strongly recommend this story. It is a great read and you will wish Ms. St. Claire could write with the speed of a runaway train. They just can't come fast enough. To Ms. St. Claire, thank you for writing such great stories. You make the people so real that it makes one want to meet them or at least move next door to the big animal rescue. Lucky Miz Marie.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 4/25/2021
