The Dog Sitter by Zara Stoneley **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy Thursday y’all!

This was such a fun feel good romcom that gave me the warm fuzzies. A likable heroine, a gorgeous setting, an adorable puppy, and a gorgeous man.🐶

The Dog Sitter

One dog. Two strangers. An unfurgettable romance.

Wanted: someone nice, normal and trustworthy to housesit a beautiful cottage in the Lake District while the owner is away on a business trip. Must like dogs.

Wanting to escape from crap bosses and useless boyfriends, Becky jumps at the chance of being a dog sitter and the perfect escape – rest, relaxation and a very cute pooch called Bella.

But looking after Bella comes with a catch, namely gorgeous, brooding, Chris Hemsworth-worthy Ash James, who claims Bella is his dog and will stop at nothing to get her back!

Becky’s not about to hand over lovely Bella to any Tom, Dick or Ash.  She’s determined to watch every move Ash James makes…even if it gets her very hot under the collar.

My Thoughts

Four paws up for this totally adorable romcom. A relatable heroin, a stunning setting, a lovable puppy, sizzling chemistry and a gorgeous man. What more can you want from your romcom? Becky needs a little break from her life so she applies to housesit a cottage in the Lake District, and bonus the cottage comes with a dog. The only thing the homeowner asks is that becky does not let anyone under any circumstances touch Bella, the dog. Simple enough, right? Well it is for about 15 minutes until Ash shows up with his piercing blue eyes, delicious smile, and an obvious connection to Bella. I am certain you know where this is going, and yes it is somewhat predictable. However there is so much whimsy and charm in this delightfull tail wagging tale.

I really liked both Becky and Ash and could not figure out how they could have possibly been with their previous significant others. The setting sounded absolutely divine and I think it was featured perfectly in the story. But the true star of the show of course was Bella. She was so precious and so funny. If I didn’t already have two dogs I’d probably think I needed one. Another fun feel good story from this wonderful author.
