Ms. Cook, newest book, Must Love Dogs: New Leash on Life (Volume 2) claimed my heart. I found myself at times laughing out loud and at others squirming over the latest escapade Sarah would find herself in.
As Sarah’s summer unfolds she tries to juggle a new love, a butterfly debacle, problems with her new boyfriend’s dog, a new and different type of teaching job, and a madcap family situation, a reader is drawn into her story. I guarantee this book will make you recognize some of your own growing pangs as a youth and learn to laugh at life.
Claire Cook, has the rare ability to write a novel that is both true in its portrayal of humanity and relationships, while including intriguing twists and drawing a reader into her characters’ lives and the plot of the book.
Ms. Cook has rapidly become a favorite author of mine. While I have in the past seldom ventured into such lighthearted and subtly messaged books as are a Claire Cook trademark, I have found her books to be both wonderfully written and a joy to read.
Marta Moran Bishop, writes in a number of genres. Some of them are almost prophetic, some will take us back into the past or into our childhood.
