About The Book

Does a good deed outweigh a white lie?

With his family away this holiday season, Nathan Johnson faces his very first Christmas alone in a new city. Unexpectedly taking in the neighbor’s dog leads to a series of white lies, all designed to set his sister’s mind at ease. After all, Nathan really is spending the holidays with a stunning ginger named Oscar. He simply leaves out the part about Oscar being a dachshund.

Who knew Oscar would play furry little matchmaker and introduce Nathan to a gorgeous veterinarian who just might make Nathan’s dreams come true?

The Review

Must Love Dogs is a love story (with added dogs) and a potentially lonely Christmas for the main character.

Nathan has recently started a new job far from home, family and ex boyfriend. When his elderly neighbour falls ill, Nathan steps in to look after his dog Oscar, which in turn brings him into contact with vet Michael.

The story is told from Nathan’s point of view. We get to share his hopes and desires, alongside his self-doubts and insecurities. There is a supporting cast of fun characters as well as the hot vet and a bunch of cute dogs. 

This is an uncomplicated joy of a read, with a happy ending for man and dog. Both find their forever homes.

The Reviewer

Tony is an Englishman living amongst the Welsh and the Other Folk in the mountains of Wales. He lives with his partner of thirty-six years, four dogs, two ponies, various birds, and his bees. He is a retired lecturer and a writer of no renown but that doesn’t stop him enjoying what he used to think of as ‘sensible’ fantasy and sf. He’s surprised to find that if the story is well written and has likeable characters undergoing the trails of life, i.e. falling in love, falling out of love, having a bit of nooky (but not all the time), fending off foes, aliens and monsters, etc., he’ll be happy as a sandperson who has just offloaded a wagon of sand at the going market price. As long as there’s a story, he’s in. He aims to write fair and honest reviews. If he finds he is not the target reader he’ll move on.
