Sit Stay Love ~ Dana Mentink ~ Litfuse Blog tour with giveaway

Sit, Stay, LoveTake one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you’re ready for a lesson in love . . . Tippy style.
Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother’s elderly dog, Tippy, he’s quick to call on a pet-sitting service.
Gina isn’t thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can’t abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.
As Gina travels through Cal’s world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too…
Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.

My take on this book:
Heart touching story that put a smile on my face. I love that one of the main characters is Tippy the overweight dog, that in itself would have made this book a must read for me, she was truly a character herself, often doing laugh out loud funny things, but the author also provides a sweet story with enjoyable characters that made this book a joy to read. Gina is an out of work teacher who is doing a stint as a dog walker and Cal, who really isn't a dog person,  has just inherited a dog and needs someone to take care of her. While Gina isn't crazy about Cal she loves Tippy.

Loveable characters and a heartwarming story makes this a wonderful little read. Anyone who enjoys reading about dogs will find it a must read, but honestly anyone looking for an uplifting, put a smile on your face kind of read really should read it as well.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
