Carmen sent a private plane to pick her up. As luck would have it, the pilot Nick was devilishly handsome, just the type that had always broken her heart. She finds herself drawn to him. As he flirts with her, she mentions how much she misses Philip, leading him to believe that Philip is a man, not a dog. Arriving at Casa del Lago, the home of the Espositos, Julie discovers that Carmen treats her poodles like her children since her real children have left home. She won’t allow Julie to use choker chains nor some of the other things that are done during training. Nick has a fear of dogs, but he still does what he can to help Julie, even taking her side against Carmen.
Julie is also trying to open up a new adoption center for dogs, but she needs money to do it. To receive the money from her trust fund, she must marry. After talking to Carmen, she goes to a dating service online and tries to find a different type of guy than she usually dates. Using the name Dog Nanny, she begins a variety of dates, whereby Julie even puts herself in danger. It also seems like everywhere she goes, Nick shows up with a date. In the process of opening a center for dogs, will she get herself killed?
DOG NANNY is a delightful romantic suspense. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down until I finished reading the very last sentence. The secondary characters are charming and add appeal to the story. Julie is drawn to Nick, but due to bad decisions in her past, she tries to fight her feelings for him, as he tries to get her to change her mind about him. Full of witty dialogue, charismatic characters, a suspense-filled plot, steamy romance and dangerous situations, this story is a winner. If you are looking for a delightful way to lounge away an afternoon, look no further than the delightful read, DOG NANNY.
