I liked this one a bit more than I have recent single titles of NR. For once the heroine didn't grate. And all the teaching/information about this heroine's job didn't feel like I was getting a lecture on this particular profession as I have in some of her previous books.
Maybe because the dogs were good characters in an of themselves? Also there was a bit more humor in this book. Not over the top, not even really in your face. But it was subtle and it was there. I especially liked the hero, Simon. He was a bit rough around the edges. I will say NR has been hitting it out the park with her heroes lately, even if I am not enamored of her heroines.
Nice comfort read, did the job for me on a recent rainy day.
