I enjoyed the family interaction a lot in this story. Oddly, not so much the dog parts. But then I own cats so there's that. ( )

You have to love Claire Cook – (a given) . . . she is like an energized bunny who keeps on ticking! She is back with a bang with Must Love Dogs: New Leash on Life #2. Loved the first book and the movie, and the much loved characters, are back for another round!

Claire does not miss a beat with her sense of humor with the Hurlihy family in rare form. After Sarah’s divorce, Sarah and John are moving forward in bliss until Sarah’s brother Michael and his dog are staying with her and of course John’s new puppy hates Sarah.

Michael and Phoebe – oh, Sarah hopes to get them back to together soon in order to get back to her life and sense of normality. Carol, Sarah’s sister has other plans. Meanwhile Phoebe packs up their daughters and heads to Savannah and Michael follows, with the Hurlihy family close behind to cheer them on.

Claire has the inside scoop on family, relationships, and siblings, which will keep you laughing until the end. It was fun to catch up with characters from the past and if you loved the first one, you will love #2 even more. Looking forward to round 3!

Book 2 of the hilarious and heartwarming USA Today bestseller-turned-movie starring Diane Lane and John Cusack!

Must Love Dogs is now a series! Claire Cook's most enduring characters are back in Must Love Dogs: New Leash on Life!   Life after divorce for Sarah Hurlihy used to consist of juggling her job as a preschool teacher with the demands of her interfering family. But after a rocky start, Sarah and John Anderson have shared six months of dating bliss. Now their relationship is basically on hold because Sarah's brother, Michael, and his dog, Mother Teresa, are staying with her. And John's new puppy, Horatio, hates Sarah. With a passion.   Michael hopes absence will, in fact, make his wife Phoebe's heart grow fonder. Sarah hopes she can do her sisterly duty and send Michael on his merry way before she ends up single again herself. John hopes Sarah and his puppy can work things out before it's too late. Sarah's bossy big sister, Carol, hopes both Michael and their father will start dating again.   When Phoebe packs up their daughters and heads home to Savannah, Georgia, Michael follows her from Marshbury, Massachusetts, and the Hurlihy clan tags along for reinforcement. Including Dad, who has finally upgraded his Smith Corona to a laptop and already has a date with a woman named Sugar Butt.   Be sure to "Click to Look Inside" just above on the left so you can read an excerpt!   PRAISE FOR CLAIRE COOK   "Claire Cook (Must Love Dogs) has built a brand writing light-hearted women's fiction blending kernels of the absurd and comedic in compulsively readable combinations." –(Shelf Awareness   "The exuberant and charming Claire Cook is one of the sassiest and funniest creators of contemporary women’s fiction.” —The Times-Picayune   “laugh-out-loud”—Good Housekeeping   “gleefully quirky”—Redbook    “Midlife love, laughter...and self-discovery...Goes down as easy as it sounds.”—People Magazine   “As refreshing as an icy drink on a sultry day.”—Family Circle   “Nobody does the easy-breezy beach read with a lighter hand than Claire Cook.” —Hartford Courant   PRAISE FOR MUST LOVE DOGS   "Funny and pitch-perfect."—The Chicago Tribune   "If Must Love Dogs is any indication of her talents, readers will hope that Claire Cook will be telling breezy summer stories from the South Shore of Massachusetts for seasons to come."—The Washington Post   "A hoot."—The Boston Globe   "A hilariously original tale about dating and its place in a modern woman's life."— BookPage   "Claire Cook's Must Love Dogs, a book that's got more giggles than soda bread has raisins."—Hartford Courant   "perfect for whiling away an afternoon on the beach."—Library Journal
