It was even sort of a "governmental order" as the governor of Georgia stated that "It might be a time to read a good book" during the Feb 2014 snow/ice storm, so I took it to heart and did my patriotic duty to hunker down in front of the fireplace with Sarah, her siblings, her hilarious father, and the other believable characters Claire Cook so brilliantly brought into my family room. Many times while reading, I found myself wanting to press a "LIKE" button after a certain passage, maybe some of Sarah's self-talk that I wanted to highlight and remember. I must say the beach scene with Paul was pure genius. She captures nuances of different relationships perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and will recommend it to anyone who likes a fun, captivating story that you don't have to work to understand. By the way, I'm a big lover of dogs.
This is the continuation of Sarah & John's story. It shows them in their six month of dating happiness. Their relationship is put on hold because Sarah's brother, Michael, and his dog, Mother Teresa, are staying at Sarah's house. Michael and his wife are having troubles. And Sarah is having problems with John's new puppy, Horatio.
Sarah is trying to do her sisterly thing and hopefully get Michael on his way before the strain of him staying in her house puts her back on the market. John is hoping that his puppy and his love will be able to work together to come upon a happy ending. There is also Sarah's big sister, Carol, who is bossy and wanting her Dad and brother to start dating again.
I really enjoyed this second part to the first book. It is nice to be with the whole family again, and see what they have been up to. The Dad is still as in to dating as he was before. He even trades in his old Smith Corona typewriter and gets a laptop. He finds and makes a date with a woman named Sugar Butt!!!
I think this is a laugh out loud book, with plenty of funny moments mixed in with the heartwarming ones. I recommend it!
This is book 2, a sequel to Must Love Dogs. We’re back with Sarah and her quirky and crazy family, and her new boyfriend John, all introduced in the original book.
I expected to love this one as I do everything else by Claire, but … I didn’t.
It was just … okay.
I’ve been mulling and thinking for a few days, trying to put my finger on the problem.
Part of it is the John character. He and Sarah are dating exclusively now. John has a dog, a cute and fluffy thing named Horatio who doesn’t really like Sarah much. John turned into a bit of a girl, the way he fawned over the dog, and put the dog ahead of Sarah. I didn’t like him for that. He seemed weak and not the alpha-male-hero I like in fiction.
Part of it was the plot. A lot of Claire Cook’s charm is in her quirky secondary characters and the crazy things they do. Nothing much happened until Sarah, two of her siblings, and dad hit Savannah for a brief vacation.
I'm fairly certain that this is Claire's first foray into self-publishing and is her attempt to launch a hybrid career. It has potential but I think professional editing would have made it a stronger story.
I’ll continue to read Claire Cook, but I’m hoping this one slipped past her usual editing team and the next ones will recover their customary glory.
As Sarah’s summer unfolds she tries to juggle a new love, a butterfly debacle, problems with her new boyfriend’s dog, a new and different type of teaching job, and a madcap family situation, a reader is drawn into her story. I guarantee this book will make you recognize some of your own growing pangs as a youth and learn to laugh at life.
Claire Cook, has the rare ability to write a novel that is both true in its portrayal of humanity and relationships, while including intriguing twists and drawing a reader into her characters’ lives and the plot of the book.
Ms. Cook has rapidly become a favorite author of mine. While I have in the past seldom ventured into such lighthearted and subtly messaged books as are a Claire Cook trademark, I have found her books to be both wonderfully written and a joy to read.
