The actual plot was good and a little different to the normal. I liked being educated about assistance dogs and I thought the characters were okay - but for goodness sake! The assumptions, the carry on over whether Donna should go out with him - oh, she wants to, but - and he can't open his mouth and TELL HER what the problem in his life is.
Okay, so she eventually finds out (after I'd skipped some pages of waffle) and the way she discovers it is quite clever, so if there's wasn't quite so much boring carry-on over what she thinks he is doing, what her mother things she is doing...etc etc etc...
It was all so unnecessary when one considers that the author could have crafted an excellent, informative, sensitive and even sexy book without Donna's miserable shenanigans.
Because he's afraid he'll scare her off, Mark won't tell her he has a young, autistic son. She won't tell him about her miserable marriage and her hopes and dreams of leaving her grueling office job and oppressive manager.
Donna's life includes a three legged dog, a rabbit named Fundus, and a wonderful son who understands his mother is doing her best for him. Mark is torn between getting the right care for his son and doing what is right for Donna.
Through a multitude of miscommunications, intrusion from Donna's well meaning mother and Mark's senile father, and hilariously funny star-crossed scenarios Donna and Mark finally connect when she lands a day care position where Mark's son, Jack, is in care.
In this wonderful story of love and redemption the animals play a large part including Jack's service dog, Starbuck.
Well done, once again, Sheryl!
Victoria Pitts Caine author of: Alvarado Gold
This story has two insecure, but likeable main characters, surrounded by interesting, believable people with a variety of challenging problems. The couple needs to work through a series of misunderstandings, while managing their own complex lives. It's an entertaining, frustrating and sweet story -- in the end, I think my favorite character is the female lead's 17-year-old son.
The romance is G-rated, and there's very little cursing. In addition, there's a very well done sub-plot about an autistic child and a service dog that was a touching and inspiring addition to the story.
Sheryl Browne does an excellent job of portraying, step by step, the breakthroughs made in Karl's development. She incorporates these events into her story in bits and bites for us to savour along the way.
If you want a "feel good" story that will involve your emotions, read "Somebody to Love." Just be sure to set aside some spare time because you won't want to put this book down.
I laughed, cried, and at times did both at the same time when I read this book.
Sheryl's writing comes from the heart and it's truly apparent when you read this novel.
