Her love life has gone to the dogs…
Rose Richardson is on the run from her dangerous ex-husband, a crime she didn’t commit—and the embarrassment of being an advice columnist with a disastrous personal life. Donning a fake identity, she escapes to a lovely lake house rental in rural Connecticut…only to discover her refuge is already occupied. Leo Drake is devastatingly handsome–and clearly wants to be alone. Rose stands her ground, even while she fears being found out for the fugitive she is. Plus, her sweet dog, Bella, seems to like the brooding widower, so how bad could he be?
A prize winning novelist, Leo lost everything after he lost his wife. But his mysterious housemate just might be the muse he needs to reignite his writing career. Despite his misgivings, Rose has secrets that only draw him closer, firing his imagination, even as his heart struggles with the attraction building between them. Plus, he kind of likes the quirky pooch. And as he tries to untangle his unusual predicament, Bella’s antics just might be the key to showing the loner that love is the only inspiration he needs…

Fantastic read! It's a sweet story of two people needing to hide from the world for a while. Leo is an author who is struggling to finish his current book. Since his wife died, his writing seems to have died too. Going to Blue Moon Lake for a little solitude is his last ditch effort. Now that tranquility is shattered when an unexpected tenant shows up demanding she has a right to the house. Rose is on the run. She's running from her ex-husband, the law, and her job. She thought she found the perfect haven on Blue Moon Lake until she finds out she has an unexpected housemate.
These two finding their way is humorous at times, heartwarming all the time, and just plain fun. I loved Bella and think she stole the story. I highly recommend this one.
