It’s been two years since Sloan lost her fiancé. On her way to visit his grave, she nearly runs over a dog, and when she stops to check on him, he hops right into her car. After a quick check on his collar, and a visit to the vet to make sure he’s okay, Sloan calls the number on the dog’s ID tag. Every day for a week she leaves a message for this mysterious owner, even though she’s getting more and more attached to the pooch. Jason has been in Australia, out of touch for weeks. When he can finally check his voicemails, he finds out that not only did his friend not take care of his dog but someone else now has him. And she’s not about to just give the dog back to a possibly neglectful owner. Thus begins a series of texts, phone calls, and voicemails between Jason and Sloan. This delightfully adorable story features a heroine who is finally ready to break out of the shell of grief and an on-the-rise musician hero.
VERDICT With a playlist running throughout the novel, this book will strike a chord with music-loving romance readers. A first-tier purchase for public libraries.
