New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery is known for emotionally complex stories told with charm and wit. Susan has lived all over the United States, including a childhood in the suburbs of Los Angeles, graduate school in the hills of Pennsylvania and several years in Texas. These days, she makes her home in Seattle, Washington. She's there for the coffee, not the weather.
Training therapy dogs is hard work, especially when the dog is as exuberant as Fluffy. Montana Hendrix, long considered the family screwup, loves her work but fears the worst when Fluffy gets loose in the hospital's burn unit and earns the wrath of uptight Dr. Simon Bradley. When one of Simon's young patients wants to see "the puppy," Simon ends up on Montana's doorstep. The attraction he feels is shocking and unexpected after a lifetime spent avoiding relationships. VERDICT An adorable, outspoken heroine and an intense hero in need of emotional healing set the sparks flying in Mallery's latest lively, comic, and touching family-centered story that is the second tale of the Hendrix triplets but the fifth in her larger "Fool's Gold" series. Mallery (Only Mine) lives in the Pacific Northwest. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
