The Dog Sitter is a light summer read. It is a romance novel that tells the story of Becky. She wants a change from her current life so accepts a job out of the city as a dog sitter. However, things don’t go exactly as planned. This becomes clear from the opening sentences. Told in Becky’s voice, she struggles to arrive at the job. For another, there is some confusion about whose dog Bella is. Does she belong to the person whose house Becky is staying in or does she belong to Ash who claims that Bella is his? Romantic and comic mayhem ensue before all is resolved.
This is not a deep read by any means. Still, it may provide that kind of momentary pleasure that readers look for when they want a break.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
