Review: Fetching Sweetness

        `Fetching Sweetness` is book two of the Love Unleashed series. This series is especially for dog lovers, written by Dana Mentink.

        Although I have become a cat lover I enjoyed reading this book, with its antics, and I especially like the cover.

        As a literary agent, Stephanie Pink is eager to get the book manuscript from the author. However she must first find, and return the author's dog, `Sweetness`. She finds Sweetness and also meets Rhett who offers her to stay at his place. When Stephanie goes into her bedroom she sees a ladies nightgown and duct tape. So, she comes to the conclusion that Rhett is a serial killer- she's been reading too many books. She wonders why else would a single man have a ladies nightgown? She decides she needs another book to read, and soon, or she'll get edgy. It's an obsession. I can relate! I thought the scene where Rhett fell off the ladder showed compassion on Stephanie's part.

        The realism of the characters made it seem as if they were my neighbors under disguise. I sided with Stephanie when she threw a bag of flour at Rhett. This was one of my favorite parts of the book. I could see myself doing the same thing. So I just laughed. Stephanie has quite an imagination. Rhett says God speaks to him, Stephanie disagrees.

         A most interesting part was when Sweetness brought a feral cat to Stephanie. Sweetness was carrying the screaming cat by the scruff of its neck. Sweetness reminded me of when our cat brought a bird and a chipmunk into our house. Both live and at different times.

        This book made me laugh and I recommend it to fans of comedy.
