A Christmas NovelBook - 2017
"He stood in the doorway, overweight, depressed, nearly homeless. He was a pug named Teddy Roosevelt, and he was Brydie Benson's new full-time, four-legged housemate. True, Teddy was a little bit gassy, a little bit grumpy, but Brydie figured he was no worse than her ex-husband and probably a whole lot more faithful. Plus, he was part of the deal: pet-sit Teddy and live in a lovely home rent-free. Navigating her newly single world wasn't easy, but Brydie knew a couple of things: First, she was a darn good baker. Second, she wasn't going to let circumstances get the better of her. So she began to rebuild her world -- making new friends, like cute local veterinarian Nathan Reid; Teddy's irascible owner, Pauline Newman; and new work colleagues who began to remind her what the true meaning of family was all about. As Halloween turned to Christmastime, Brydie's disdain for Teddy and her new life turned into a love she hadn't known she still had inside of her. She began to realize that baking for Teddy could be just as satisfying as baking for humans -- after all, dogs rarely complain. And somewhere, in between gluten-free dog bones and crisp apple tarts, Brydie found the life she'd never known she'd always wanted." -- From publisher's description.
