This book is an absolute joy! I rarely laugh out loud at a book, but this one did it. It also has some touching moments. Any woman who has ever been in the "dating scene" will love this book. What a gem!!!

This might be a weird criticism to some, but I expected more dogs in this book. She didn't even own one! By the way, I had the same problem with the movie. Don't promise me dogs unless you're going to give me dogs.

It was an average book. Some places were a little slow, but overall a good read.

Cute book. I got a real kick out of reading this book, as I also live in "Marshbury" where this book takes place, and the author has her home.

Book Description
Claire Cook's beguilingly original Ready to Fall struck a vibrant chord with its "perky take on midlife angst" (Publishers Weekly). In Must Love Dogs she gives us a contemporary Everywoman in a big rollicking south-of-Boston Irish family-a zany novel with the flavor of Nora Ephron, Susan Isaacs, and Jeanne Ray's Julie and Romeo.

Forty-year-old Sarah Hurlihy, a divorced preschool teacher whose life is her classroom, is about to meet her first date in more than a decade. It was the "Loves Dogs" that hooked her in the personal ad, and now she is scanning her neighborhood café for the man with a yellow rose. And find him she does, but he's the last person on earth she expects to find there . . .

Cute, easy, fast read. Being a preschool teacher myself, I could relate to lots of it-this would be a great book for the beach or pool. I enjoy Claire Cook's writing-and will read more of her work.
