OrangeReviewStarWhen Rosenfelt and his wife decided to pack up and move from California to Maine, they had a lot more to consider than whether to bring the old sofa. Relocating cross-country has its challenges, especially when 25 dogs are coming along for the ride. A dog rescuer and mystery writer (notably the "Andy Carpenter" series), Rosenfelt enlisted the help of friends and fans to get his furry and four-legged family into their new home. With the aid of three RVs, the dogs made it cross-country, and the journey, guided by stories of dogs that changed Rosenfelt's life for the better, will remind readers that sometimes the most life-changing trip is the one that both goes down memory lane and to new, undiscovered places.
VERDICT A treat for fans of horror writer Dean Koontz's A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog, this book will inspire readers to look at their own dogs with a new appreciation—and to pay that love forward by helping a shelter dog in need. A story as poignant as it is hilarious.
