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.

YOU LUCKY DOG by Julia London
Nick and Charlotte’s story is a humorous tale of a mix-up with unexpected consequences in You Lucky Dog by Julia London.
Carly Kennedy is already living a crazy, out of control life so when she comes home to find the dog walker switched out her depressed basset hound, Baxter, for a much perkier and friendlier one, she has definitely reached the end of her leash.
Max Sheffington is bewildered when he finds a depressed male basset hound instead of his happy Hazel. After a long, chasing tail search, Carly discovers where her poor Baxter was left. When Max finds Carly on his doorstep he was surprised, expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with strange ideas about dog training.
Carly was not expecting the handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese or being allowed on the couch. The problem is that Baxter is head over heels happy with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For Baxter’s sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite.
Ms. London wrote a wonderful, emotional, humorous story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, humorous banter, lots of laughs, and charming secondary characters, besides the dogs, giving Carly and Max a chance at love as well as a future together. I highly recommend You Lucky Dog to other readers.
