Just about every character that appears has chapters in the book, one of the problems with this is that it shows up the fact they all sound the same.
The dog unfortunately sounds more like an aged philosopher than a fun-loving canine.
There are a significant number of grammatical errors, and a good content edit wouldn't go amiss. I was bored reading about Annabelle's tousled curls, and the descriptions are formulaic: skin that shone like burnished bronze/copper, creamy white skin, alabaster, clear ebony skin.
The plot is predictable, and the prose littered with clichés and adverbs, as if the author doesn't quite believe we'll understand. The book is marketed as a comedy, but certainly isn't that.
There is a lot we don't get to see. Annabelle goes from hating the dog to being best friends, but other than a walk or two we don't see any of this, and yet it is a major plot point. She takes back her cheating husband, and then he leaves her again, making her appear weak rather than a character who has learned something about herself and life.
The book's flaws are probably genre flaws--some stilted dialogue, cardboard characters, glib descriptions. That sounds horrible, but the flaws are light in degree and there's enough story to let the reader slide over them. For me, a good editor and a rewrite that added depth to the characters, life to the dialogue and an eye for the telling detail would make this a great book.
But I'd advise anyone to grab a copy to take along--on a plane, in a waiting room, or just curled up with a latte and a dog at your feet.
I have also read Transplanting Holly Oakwood by Jones and thought it was a delightful chick lit read. I was looking forward to reading Meeting Miss Mollie, and once again, thought it was fun chick lit book. Jones writes with humor, wit, spark, and I loved that we got a POV from Mollie - a dog! I thought that was a little different, and her chapters were cracking me up. Sometimes I didn't understand the romance angle, it was like it kept coming out of the blue, and Annabelle seemed to get over her fear of dogs a bit too suddenly. But I liked Annabelle as a character, she was easy to relate to especially when it came to her failed marriage, and I did enjoy reading. I would recommend Di Jones to chick lit fans!
A truly enjoyable read.

Who can resist the charms of a brindle boxer? Annabelle is better at giving advice than taking her own advice. Miss Mollie is the real heroine.Published on November 7, 2013 by Diane L. Neri
