Story:

The puppy that stole their hearts is missing!

Grace Wilson loves the wonderful life she has created with her daughter in picturesque Redwood Cove, California–even if she is a bit lonely. To add to their family, mom and daughter adopt a sweet „Golden Wetweevuh“ puppy. And they’re not the only ones who think Star is, well, a star. A television show casts the pup for a role, but it’s the co-host that has Grace’s heart doing tricks.

Dash Diamond is a local celebrity with a megawatt smile. He is less than thrilled when his show’s producers inform him that a puppy has been cast in a new role. But his new co-star comes with an owner who makes Dash see stars when he looks at her.

When Star is puppy-napped and held for ransom, all attention goes to her rescue. Grace and Dash can’t act on their undeniable romantic spark of attraction while the pup is possibly in danger. Star is the missing piece. Will they find her in time to complete their puzzle?

Find out if Star can find her way safely home to complete her family, all while proving she’s the star of the show. This sweet tale is one adventure you don’t want to miss out on…

Guarding Grace is book three in the Gold Coast Retrievers series. Each book stands completely on its own, but you’ll have more fun if you read them all together!

My review:

I’m usually not a big fan of books revolving around animals but since I enjoyed every other book I’ve read from Ann before, I gave it a try. It was a lovely romance story inflicted by dog Star. Grace and her daughter Clover adopt a puppy, not knowing that she’ll become a TV star or how their lives are going to change. While host Dash Diamond hates Star at first, the audience loves her and Dash gets forced by his employers to live with Grace, Clover and Star for a week to bond with the dog. If he refuses to do so, they promised to search for a new host. You’ll be surprised at how Dash living in a small place turns out and what other surprises the book holds.

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
