Have you read any of Michele Gorman or Lilly Bartlett's novels? If so, you may know that Michele and Lilly are actually the same author. The Truth About Love and Dogs - just out today - is being published by Lilly Bartlett but is actually a rewrite of one of Michele Gorman's titles. I haven't read it before so I'm looking forward to diving into a new (to me) rom-com.
Here's what the novel is all about:
Four little words, uttered by her husband…I don't exactly want to say it sounds like "fun" because it totally doesn't for Scarlett but I'm intrigued.
‘Oh my god,’ he gasped into her shoulder. ‘Shannon!’
There’s just one problem: her name isn’t Shannon.
Rewind six months and Scarlett and Rufus aren’t in the honeymoon stage anymore so much as the honey-should-we-bother phase. Desperate to get their sparkle back, Scarlett has plotted, planned and waxed more than any woman should have to, but none of it is working. Which makes it very hard to start the family they want.
At least her business is going strong, even if her marriage isn’t. She and her best friend spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur. Scarlett is the fairy dogmother, training hopeless pets like compulsive eater Barkley, impulsive Romeo Murphy and bossy Biscuit. Meanwhile, her best friend walks the dogs and pines for the man who doesn’t know she exists. Thank goodness the women have each other.
If only Scarlett could work out how to get her marriage back on track. But Rufus isn’t sharing his feelings with her. He is, though, sharing with her best friend. Her best friend, Shannon.
I also really enjoy seeing what Michele and Lily's covers are going to look like and what the US vs UK covers will look like. I'm always partial to the UK covers (above) but maybe you'll like the US one (below) better. Let me know!
Stay tuned for my review and if you're interested already you can pick up a copy of your own.
