Synopsis from Goodreads: When everything has gone to the dogs . . . When Jocelyn Hillier is named legal guardian for the late Mr. Allardyce's pack of pedigreed Labrador retrievers, her world is flipped upside down. She's spent her entire life toiling in the tourism industry in Black Dog Bay and never expected to be living the pampered life of a seasonal resident in an ocean side mansion, complete with a generous stipend. But her new role isn't without its challenges: The dogs (although lovable) are more high-maintenance than any Hollywood diva, the man she wants to marry breaks her heart, and she's confronted at every turn by her late benefactor's estranged son, Liam, who thinks he's entitled to the inheritance left to the dogs. Jocelyn has worked too hard to back down without a fight, and she's determined to keep her new fur family together. As she strives to uphold the "Best in Show" standards her pack requires, Jocelyn finds love, family, and forgiveness in the most unexpected places

My Review: This book was surprisingly funny and completely adorable. I really connect with the main characters and could relate to her love of dogs. The writing was easy to read, well paced and I laughed out loud several times. The supporting characters were great, I especially loved the best friend! The romance was good, though it took a back seat to the character development and I appreciated that. If you are looking for a really fun romantic comedy with some loveable dogs added in then definitely give this book a chance! Though it is part of a series (more like a group of connected books), it can be read as a standalone and you won’t miss anything.

*I received this book from Berkley Books in exchange for an honest review*
