Dog Days of Summer (Gone to the Dogs #2) by Kathleen Y'Barbo


Mishaps Abound as Second Chance Ranch Struggles to Get Its Start
Grab a lap dog to cuddle and relax into a fun small-town mystery as a new dog rescue project turns into a three-ring circus of calamities in book 2 of the Gone to the Dogs series.
Trina Potter, Nashville country music star, buys a ranch near her hometown in Brenham, Texas, to help her niece open a rescue facility for dogs. Her presence in town stirs up some old high school rivalries—and romance. Finding property to buy is a challenge, convincing her mother to move there with her is daunting, and navigating a string of strange accidents is perplexing. Sometimes Trina feels like she’s purchased her own three ring circus instead of a beautiful piece of land. But her first priority will be figuring out who wants Second Chance Ranch shut down before they even have the grand opening.

My Review

This was such a fun read, the pages flew, and although this is the second book in this series, by a different author, it meshed beautifully! Yes, it can be read alone, but you would be missing another great book! Now I can't wait for the next book in this series!

Yes, we have returning characters, gotta love Mamma and her yummy pies, and her Granddaughter Marigold and her heart for rescue dogs, but this book is Aunt Trina, whom loves her family, and she will do anything to keep them safe!

The author does a great job of keeping your attention, and there is a lot of action, and my mind kept guessing, yes, I was right about some, but it is deeper, you won't be disappointed!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
