Bestselling author Debbie Burns combines her love for rescue dogs with a compelling woman's journey in her brand new series.
Making a new start in a new part of the country is particularly challenging for a single mom. Fate and good fortune lead 27-year-old Josie Waterhill to Galena, Illinois where she and her six-year-old daughter, Zoe, move into a historic mansion that operates as a tea house. When 34-year-old journalist Carter O'Brien comes to stay at the mansion while researching his next story, Josie isn't sure what to think of this charming stranger and his 110-pound rescue dog.
Carter's curiosity about Josie deepens and he inadvertently stirs up trouble when he learns things about Josie and her daughter that she would rather not have known. Ready or not, Josie has to let go of her painful past so she can create a glorious future.
"Burns charms with the complex fourth Rescue Me contemporary, which is much more than a cute critter story...Mia's colorful, philosophical mother and endearing son add depth and richness to the well-paced narrative, as do a whole pack of lovable animals. This creative story will draw new fans to Burns's satisfying series."—Publishers Weekly for Love at First Bark
