Feliz Naughty Dog
Pru Kilcannon has one goal when she wakes on Christmas Eve – to perform the most “Random Acts of Christmas Kindness” so she can spread cheer and ensure her high school wins the county-wide “RACK IT UP” contest. But when her friends decide to team up with their boyfriends, the ever-helpful Dogmothers enlist the new kid in school as Pru’s partner for the contest. And that means good-girl Pru has to spend the entire day with the broody, moody, and crazy cute bad boy Lucas Darling, and his chaos-causing greyhound, Tor.
As if that wasn’t enough holiday havoc, Pru and Lucas have to accompany the grannies on a secret mission to check out a man Yiayia has met on an online dating service. Gramma Finnie is convinced Aldo Fiore is a mobster, Yiayia thinks he’s her dream man, and Pru just wants to be sure her great-grandmothers don’t get themselves arrested — or worse. There’s no telling what could happen when the Dogmothers spy on an eighty-year-old who might be playing a rather flirtatious Santa at the mall…or might be hiding from the Feds.
But no one expected the real trouble to come from Tor, the former racing dog who causes mayhem and mall madness. As Pru and Lucas attempt to control Tor, supervise the Santa Stalking, and knock out a few random acts of kindness…they also give in to a delicious little Christmas crush that just might lead to some magic under the mistletoe this year!

This is such a great Christmas book! I fell in love with the characters and am so happy to see how much our girl has grown up!
If you have not read it and are on the fence about any Dogfather or Dogmother books, take a leap of faith! From book one you will be lost in such an amazing world, in Bitter Bark!
A heartwarming to the Dogfather series!
Feliz Naughty Dog
Christmas would not be the same without the Dogmothers and Pru off on a wild adventure! When Pru is being driven by the Dogmothers to be dropped off for a school event that she organized, she discovers two things - her friends who were supposed to be her partners backed out to be paired up with their boyfriends, and that the Dogmothers are off to the mall on a mystery mission. Pru insists on going with them after getting the event started - which is a competition between three high schools to earn points by performing random acts of Christmas kindness (RACK).
What trouble can the two Dogmothers cause?!! Doing what they do best - they play matchmaker for Pru with the new bad boy in town, who they pair off with Pru to earn RACK points, allowing the Dogmothers to go on their mystery mission of investigating the mall Santa who happens to have matched with Yiayia on a dating site. Finnie is convinced he’s part of the mafia.
I loved the madcapped adventures of the Dogmothers as well as with Pru, Lucas Darling, and Tor (greyhound rescue dog) that belongs to Lucas. It wouldn’t be Christmas Eve for this family without some adventures! Highly recommend if you want lighthearted reading that makes you chuckle and brings a smile to your face.
