"The Mountaintop School For Dogs and Other Second Chances" by Ellen Cooney is an Interesting Read

The Mountaintop School For Dogs and Other Second Chances by Ellen Cooney is about a young lady named Evie who decides to take a job working in a sanctuary for dogs who are there to get a second chance to find a forever home.  Evie does not know all that much about dogs, but she is a quick learner. 

This is a good heartwarming story.  I really liked Evie and of course I loved the dogs!  You will find out some new things about how dogs think.  If you are a dog lover like me, it's a must read!
(Gerard's review, 5+ stars)

"One Kick" by Chelsea Cain Lacks Action

One Kick by Chelsea Cain is about a young girl who was kidnapped and held for years.  Now rescued, she meets a man who wants her help in finding other kids that have been abducted.  She might even find some answers that are still unresolved in her ordeal.  It's a page turner, but I would have liked more action.  The ending was really good though and I liked seeing how it all plays out.
(Gerard's review, 4 stars)

Teaser Tuesday: Four Today


Gerard's:

It was four in the morning and I was too excited to sleep.  Two weeks had passed since Sylvia's wonderful news; and now it was here--dog day! 
 From page 19 of a dog named Slugger--The true story of the service dog that changed my life by Leigh Brill.  (Non-fiction-click link for Gerard's review)


The man was still pounding on the door.  She felt something in her hand, a hard square inch of wood, and was startled to see the K tile clutched between her fingers.

From page 4 of One Kick by Chelsea Cain. (See my review--too good to not have a teaser from it.)

Karen's:

But Iola seemed to have found peace within herself, despite the rejection in her childhood and the pain in her life.  How do you cast aside a word like anathema, instead of slipping into it like second skin and living in it forever?

From page 168 (Loc. 2283 on Kindle) of The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate.

I could barely believe what I'd just seen.  I sat in the darkened room too stunned to speak.

From page 26 of A Dog Named Slugger by Leigh Brill.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun!
    Happy Reading!
