Recently widowed by an estranged husband she was planning to divorce, Mia Chambers finds herself in a situation that is complicated, both for her and her kid. It becomes overwhelming when she learns her husband may have fathered another child. Things are equally complicated for Ben Thomas, Mia’s late husband’s best friend and their son’s godfather. Ben has secretly been in love with Mia for years and, before everything completely unraveled, the two shared a moment, indicating his feelings might not be entirely one-sided. After a pack of border collies are left to roam in a park, Mia and Ben help to round up and foster the dogs. It might be crazy to add three new dogs to the already messy circumstances, but it also might help straighten things out.
VERDICT With complications on top of complications, the sweet fourth outing in the “Rescue Me” series (after A New Leash on Love) unfortunately occasionally gets lost among the tangles. Still, series fans might want to give it a try.
