Stay - Allie Larkin Girl has boy, girl loses boy to best friend and in drunken misery accidentally buys a dog on the internet, girl meets vet, original boy comes back … girls is confused! That about sums up this book. Another nice first book by a new author.

What can I say … it’s a romance novel with a dog as a major character. But this dog does not talk or do anything un-dog-like. He is just there; a constant, as any good dog should be. A great read for a rainy, or lately around here - sweltering, Sunday afternoon when there is really nothing to do that would be any better.
