Can’t Wait Wednesday – YOU LUCKY DOG by Julia London
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is YOU LUCKY DOG by Julia London. My mood reader settings are still firmly in “I need books that will make me smile” mode and I fell in love with the idea of this book as soon as I saw that adorable cover. Then I read the synopsis and I’m already rooting for Carly and Max, as well as for Baxter and Hazel, lol.
YOU LUCKY DOG by Julia London
Publication Date: August 25, 2020
An accidental dog swap unleashes an unexpected love match in this new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.
Carly Kennedy’s life is in a spiral. She is drowning in work, her divorced parents are going through their midlife crises, and somehow Carly’s sister convinces her to foster Baxter–a basset hound rescue with a bad case of the blues. When Carly comes home late from work one day to discover that the dog walker has accidentally switched out Baxter for another perkier, friendlier basset hound, she has reached the end of her leash.
When Max Sheffington finds a depressed male basset hound in place of his cheerful Hazel, he is bewildered. But when cute, fiery Carly arrives on his doorstep, he is intrigued. He was expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with firm ideas about dog discipline. And Carly was not expecting a handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese. Baxter is besotted with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For his sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite.

I 10000% with you in agreeing with books that make me smile, or at the very least don’t make me feel like there’s a cloud over me! This sounds so lovely, and so much *fun* and the right kind of romance of polar opposites!

I was thinking the same thing. It would be perfect for Hallmark!
This sounds really cute! I agree about the cover, too. The author chose the right breed for her story 🙂 Bassett hounds have a way of looking depressed even when they are mildly happy, lol.
