I so wanted to like this book - I mean I am a sucker to stories with dogs in them and how they impact our lives. And I love thoughtful and inspiring chick lit. But this book is the sort that gives "chick lit" a bad rap. The characters are flat, the writing is boring and so childish, and there is nothing even likeable about these people. Fred, the dog on the cover isn't in this story near enough! I got half way through, and finally decided there are too many really good books out there to be discovered to spend my time on this one. What a disappointment.

This has to be one of the funniest books I've ever read. A 40- something heroine, newly divorced from her doctor husband, meets up with a 30-something ER doc. He can't possibly be interested in HER, can he, she thinks? After all she's older! Toss in the best written basset hound, Fred, and you have the makings of a great story!

I don't like romance, but I have to say I really enjoyed this book. The dog was a main character. He was a normal dog (he didn't talk or anything else unbelievable)and through him the main characters in the story met. The dog is really what held this story together and made it so enjoyable. For anyone who is looking for a novel that isn't just about young perfect 20 something people, has a very believable story line, and loves animals, this will be an enjoyable read.

Jennifer Crusie's books always sparkle and leave a smile on your face. Her pet, "Fred", makes you want to run right out and buy a Basset/Beagle mixed breed dog. Fun read!

I will admit the only reason I got this book was because of the cover. Being a basset hound owner and lover the cover caught my eye! As with all Jennifer Crusie's books this one is full of mishaps, funny moments, and a few real life struggles thrown in with romance. As with real basset hounds Fred steals most of the scenes in the book which is how it should be. :-) I think it took a little too long for the heroin to realize that age doesn't matter as much as who you are with, but overall it is a cute quick read that I enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this nice, easy read. Older woman, younger man and a cute dog...can't go wrong. I would recommend.

Love this author. Her books are usually better than this one though. VERY predictable and not a great wrap up. An ok book by a great author.
