Best friends Scarlett and Shannon spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur, running their dog business together. Scarlett’s intensive training course, Ruff Love, fixes owners as much as their pets, while Shannon spends her days walking spoiled pooches.
They share more than their business though: they also share Scarlett’s husband, Rufus, who’s been Shannon’s best friend since childhood. It’s a cosy setup. Unless one of them has a secret…
When Scarlett and Rufus’s baby plans are decimated by a surprise turn of events, their marriage hits the rocks and they both turn to Shannon. All three relationships are pushed to breaking point, but when loyalties become divided, how do you decide who’s most important?
As a cat lover I was quite hesitant to read a book where dogs play a huge part of the story. In ‘Love is a four-legged word’ by Michele Gorman, not cats, but dogs are one of the main characters in the story. That makes the story a tad more fun than your average chicklit. There are moments that you have to laugh out loud in the book, as well as moments that make you teary eyed, especially the ending. But other than that, really this book is just another one in the chicklit genre.
That’s not always a bad thing, because I really enjoyed myself whilst reading this book, but I don’t think this one stands out after a year of other books. Some parts of the story were a bit too much for me and not always very realistic. I did find the bond between the main characters and their dogs somewhat recognisable and that made up for a whole lot.
‘Love is a four-legged word’ by Michele Gorman is a nice in between chicklit book. The fact that dogs play such a big part in the story makes it stand out a bit.
