Named by Reader's Digest as one of the Best Romances of ALL TIME
Get ready to laugh out loud with this hilarious romantic comedy featuring:
• A grumpy firefighter who thinks his way is the only way
• A bubbly cupcake vendor who thinks her pup can do no wrong
• Adorable Dalmatians who swap places—and the chaos that ensues
• An opposites-attract romance that'll warm your heart
Violet March and Sam Nash are as different as night and day and have been enemies ever since Violet accused Sam of dognapping her beloved Dalmatian. Sam knows that would never happen—his well-trained fire safety demonstration dog never steps out of line, whereas Violet's problematic pooch has never met a command she didn't ignore completely, much like her bubbly owner. So when Sprinkles and Cinder accidentally switch places during the annual police vs. fire department softball tournament, Violet is thrilled by her dog's sudden perfect behavior, while stubborn-yet-charming Sam is horrified to find that his dog no longer listens.
But when they eventually realize and switch the dogs back, Sam and Violet are shocked to find that not everything is as simple as it seems. And a little puppy love might be just the thing they've been missing...

"A delightful romp."—Library Journal Starred Review for Royally Roma
Wilson (Once upon a Royal Summer) delivers adorable dogs and fierce small-town rivalry in this breezy contemporary romance. Violet March leads a carefree life in seaside Turtle Beach, N.C., where she runs a quirky cupcake food truck and cares for her devoted Dalmatian, Sprinkles. Then attractive new fire marshal Sam Nash moves to town with Cinder, a Dalmatian of his own, in tow. The two dogs could be twins, if it weren't that Cinder is exceptionally well trained while Sprinkles is rambunctious and spoiled. They're perfect mirrors for their owners' personalities, and their antics consistently bring the pair together. But as the police chief's daughter, Violet is firmly on that side of the community's intense first responder rivalry. It's a rift love might not be able to ford, particularly since the last time a firefighter romanced her, he turned out to be using her to steal her father's playbook before the annual softball tournament. Still, it's one zany encounter after another when Violet, Sam, and their dogs are in the same place, and there's something incendiary between them that makes these two rivals candidates for a combustible relationship. Fans of Kate Angell and Julie James will appreciate this fun, lighthearted story.)\n
A fun romcom with dogs
A Spot of Trouble by Teri Wilson is a cute, fun, romcom that will put a smile on your face. With not one, but two adorable dalmations, this book will not fail to give the reader a smile and a chuckle.
Violet Marsh runs a cupcake food truck and is the daughter of the local police chief, and sister to two of the police department officers. She has the only dalmatian in the seaside town of Turtle Beach, North Carolina, whose name is Sprinkles and is a bit unruly. When Sam Nash comes to town to take the job of Fire Marshall, nobody believes his dog Cinder, wasn’t stolen from Violet, as Cinder looks exactly like Violet’s dog Sprinkles.
The local softball tournament between the Police Department and the Fire Department is more of a blood feud than a friendly game, and when Sam and his dog Cinders get involved, Violet must decide which side her loyalties and Sprinkles loyalties preside.
This is such a sweet, albeit predictable story, with the dogs involving themselves in the romance between their masters. The book was fast-paced, and the writing good. The characters were fun, and I related to them both easily. The town of Turtle Beach is full of quirky characters, especially in the Senior Living Home, and they made for a well-rounded story. I recommend this book to lovers of sweet romcoms with adorable dogs. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
