Synopses & Reviews
David Rosenfelt s loyal readers of the Andy Carpenter series are familiar with Tara, the golden retriever sidekick. Many also got to know Tara from Dogtripping, David s nonfiction book about becoming a slightly nutty dog rescuer and the dog that started it all. Here, finally, is a book all about the inspirational canine who taught David everything he knows. Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that s about it.
Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: it s not the human), and why random barking can never be eliminated. Lessons from Tara is infused with David s trademark wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move readers to tears and laughter.
