Book Review - Every Dog Has His Day by Jenn McKinlay

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Jessie and Zach are neighbors. Jessie is a single mother of two little girls, Maddie and Gracie. Zach likes his bachelor lifestyle and is perfectly happy with the company of his dog Rufus. When Maddie and Gracie ask Zach to help them with their foster kitten Chaos he's being welcomed into their lives and discovers he loves spending time with the two girls and their mother and likes being part of a family. Is this the start of something beautiful?

 It's cold and snowstorms are making it necessary for people to help each other out. Jessie and Zach need each other to survive the extreme winter weather. This means they have the chance to spend a lot of time together. Jessie isn't looking for love after being with a man who made her and her daughters miserable, but Zach slowly melts her heart. He's great with the girls and kind to animals. Will Zach be able to convince Jessie to give him a chance?

Every Dog Has His Day is a wonderful romantic story. Zach and Jessie are both good and gentle people and it's clear from the start that they belong together. I loved their connection straight away. There are plenty of sparks and there's a friendship on a deeper level, which is a combination I'm a big fan of. I couldn't wait to find out if they'd have a chance together. Zach is a wonderful person and he's a natural with Jessie's cheeky girls. Maddie and Gracie are adorable and I had fun reading about their adventures. Jenn McKinlay writes about them in an endearing believable way that made my heart melt. I love stories about families and this is definitely a precious one.

Every Dog Has His Day is a story about people and animals. I love the loving and thorough way Jenn McKinlay describes all of her main characters and reading about Rufus and Chaos put a big smile on my face. I also liked the setting very much, two houses in the snow, it doesn't get any cosier than that. The choice of cold weather is perfect for the romance that unfolds, it really suits the story. I was immediately captivated by Every Dog Has His Day. It's charming, entertaining and cute. I absolutely loved this amazing book.


If you love sweet romantic stories about family life you should definitely read Every Dog Has His Day. It's part of the A Bluff Point Romance series, but can easily be read as a standalone.
