Standing between Stephanie and her dream is one hundred pounds of lovable trouble.
It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author’s valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.
But Agnes’s canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.
When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog…thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.
Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it’s a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.
About the author...
Dana Mentink lives in California, where the weather is golden and the cheese is divine. Dana is an American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year finalist for romantic suspense and an award winner in the Pacific Northwest Writers Literary Contest. Her suspense novel, Betrayal in the Badlands, earned a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award. Besides writing, she busies herself teaching third and fourth grade. Mostly, she loves to be home with her husband, two daughters, a dog with social anxiety problems, a chubby box turtle, and a feisty parakeet.
And I thought...Another winner! I loved the fun and
quirky story and characters. This is my second chance
to read the work of Dana Mentink. This is the second book in the Love Unleashed Series. I am looking forward to many more.
This story is creatively written and just fun. I read it in a couple of days because I couldn't put it down.
I caught myself reading funny sections to the Cowboy. I caught myself giggling.
The main character 'Sweetness' was a mix of quirkyness, goofiness and tender hearted. Who had a habit of collecting other strays. 'Sweetness' captured the hearts of the 'people' characters in the book and this reader.
Miss Mentink weaves together a fun and sweet romantic story around the crazy lives of a young couple that are both facing challenging things in their lives. Each are dealing with their own questions about God and their faith.
Fetching Sweetness is worthy of my 5 star rating.
