About this ebook

This is a NOVELLA of approximately 24,000 words = 70 odd pages. 

On the first day of Ninna’s new employment at a local animal shelter, she’s thinking only that

she desperately needs this job. That one of the dogs might talk to her is the farthest thing from

her mind. Is the basset hound, Mosey, a fat old smart aleck or is Ninna going nuts?


It’s not as if she doesn’t have plenty of other things to worry about—such as the fact that a

rash of break-ins have happened in the neighborhood, plus she feels as if she’s being watched all

the time. The only bright spot seems to be the gorgeous male veterinarian who happens to live in

the big mansion across the street from her tiny house—and his home is big enough to hold quite

a few animals, including the impudent motor-mouth Mosey.


Ninna jumps at the chance to dog-sit for her cute neighbor and coworker, insisting it’s all

part of her weekend trial as a pet owner. If she gains romantic points with the vet in the process,

more the better. Mosey looks forward to getting to know Ninna better. For the stalker tracking

Ninna’s every movement, her weekend getaway spells nefarious opportunity …

I know this was a novella. Though I sorta enjoyed reading it especially Mosey's antics, yet I felt like I fell from a high. The story build up to the break in into Stuart's house and then abruptly it's end of story. I was hoping it's a series but apparently not.

Awesome read...made me wish I had a dog too and that coming from someone who isn't really comfortable with touching, licking by animals is commendable ;)
