Review ~ A New Leash On Love by Debbie Burns

If you open your heart to love

When Craig Williams makes the tough decision to return his daughter’s adorable new puppy to a shelter because of his unfortunate divorce, it’s just another part of putting the pieces of his life back together. Getting grief from the fiery young woman running the shelter is the least of his problems…or so he thinks.

There’s no telling where it might take you

Megan Anderson loves the animals at the no-kill shelter she runs, and seeing puppies and kittens returned breaks her heart. Taking on the problems of a handsome man returning his puppy is something that just fires her up. Been there, done that, got burned. But as Craig and Megan are drawn closer together, they realize that the world isn’t all black and white, and the magic of unconditional love can do anything…

If I have to tell you the biggest winner in this book, it’d have to be the shelter. As an animal lover myself-a huge dog person to be exact- reading about how a shelter works and how the animals and people interact, what goes through the minds of those who work there and how they manage the place, interested me more than the romance itself. 

Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t get into the storyline of how Megan and Craig fell in love, I couldn’t even pinpoint when they forged an intimate relationship before taking that big step forwards. It felt as if their bonding took place off the pages and we got the details of what happened after. As interesting and emotional as the shelter storyline was, Megan and Craig’s romance was that passive.

She can run
Libby Hall needs to hide, to escape from everything for a while. Which is why the house swap is a godsend. The chance for Libby and her husband Jamie to exchange their tiny Bath flat for a beautiful haven on the wild Cornish coast.

But she can’t hide
But before they can begin to heal their fragile marriage, Libby makes some disturbing discoveries about the house. And soon the peace and isolation begin to feel threatening. How alone are they? Why does she feel watched?

Because someone knows her secret
What is Jamie hiding? Is Libby being paranoid? And why does the house bring back such terrible memories? Memories Libby’s worked hard to bury. Memories of the night she last saw her best friend alive . . . and what he did.

A story of lies and deceit, LAST SEEN ALIVE started with chilling me. And I mean, not being able to read it before bed because it unnerved me. A couple swapped their small apartment for what appeared to be an isolated mansion and then..tension. I’m not one to be scared easily, I watch and enjoy horror movies for crying out loud, but the idea of being so isolated, the feeling of being watched and the helplessness that comes from not being able to make sense of it all really got to me. Being very tired by the time I went to bed aside, I couldn’t face what Libby did at night. Because it can so easily happen to anyone.
