Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Guide dog trainer Lenae McIntyre left the high-speed world of television news writing behind, and now she helps other visually impaired people adjust to life with their canine companions. She teaches her students and their dogs to trust each other, but a past betrayal and the determination to be self-sufficient and independent keep her from trusting her heart to see love.

Cara Bradley compensates for her familys shallow celebrity lifestyle by devoting her life to helping others, while keeping to the background. She reluctantly commits to a year of puppy walking a four-legged whirlwind named Pickwick so she can film regular segments for a local news program while helping promote the McIntyre Training Center, but she is unprepared for the changes that the driven and aloof Lenae will bring to her life.

Blindsided by love, can Lenae and Cara learn to trust and guide each other toward a new vision for their future?

Review:

"A jaded television reporter and a guide dog trainer form an unlikely bond in Walsh's delightful contemporary romance. Cara Bradley is haunted by the fear that she's nothing but a pretty face. Then she meets a woman for whom looks are irrelevant. Lenae McIntyre has had her fill of show business, but her new guide dog training center needs the publicity Cara's TV show can provide. Their slow-burn romance is a nuanced exploration of trust, desire, and negotiating boundaries, without a hint of schmaltz or pity. The sex scenes are sizzling hot, but it's the slow burn that really allows Walsh to shine. The only hiccup is the novel's big dramatic revelation: when the reason for the ending of Lenae's previous relationship becomes clear, it's anticlimactic. Despite the clunky pun of a title, the deft dialogue and well-written characters make this a winner. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Karis is a Pacific Northwest native with a BA in English from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, and a few years of postgraduate work in Classics at UW in Seattle.

She lives on a small farm in Washington with a black cat, goats, and a foster horse from a local equine rescue group. She spends most of her free time reading, playing the violin and viola, and riding with friends.
