Publisher Description

Struggling to find her modern-day Mr. Darcy, a Jane Austen fan gets more than she bargained for when she swears off men and adopts an adorable puppy. 

Dr. Charlotte Rodriguez is single—again—and she blames Jane Austen. She made brooding, aloof men sound oh sodreamy. But after years of failing to find her own Mr. Darcy, Charlotte decides it’s time to swear off dating. She’s going to lavish all her love and affection on someone who actually deserves it: her new puppy, Bingley.

And there’s no one better to give her pet advice than her neighbor and coworker George Leneghan. He’s quiet and patient and, best of all, way too sweet to ever be her type. But as their friendly banter turns flirty, the unimaginable happens—Charlotte starts catching feelings.

Just as Charlotte is trying to untangle what it is she truly wants, George announces he’s contemplating a cross-country move. Suddenly, Charlotte wonders if she’s kept her soulmate in the friend zone so long that she’s entirely missed her chance at a happily ever after. Dear Reader, could it be possible she’s had it wrong all this time?

An Adorable Romance

Pride & Puppies by Lizzie Shane is the fourth book in her popular Pine Hollow series but can be easily read as a stand-alone. This friends-to-lovers story set in a delightful small town with a couple of sweet dogs made for a delightful feel-good story.

Story Recap:
Dr. Charlotte Rodriguez blames Jane Austen for being single again. She goes for those dark brooding characters and it’s always ended in disaster for Charlotte. She’s sworn off men and decided to focus on her own life and her new puppy, Bingley.

George Leneghan lives next door to Charlotte for the past year and has harbored a little crush on Charlotte. Since George is also a dog owner, he’s the perfect person to give dog advice to Charlotte as she tries to train her very active new puppy. Will spending time together training the dogs keep George in the “friend zone” with Charlotte or will Charlotte and George figure out they have a lot more in common?

My Thoughts:
I loved this sweet romance where the main characters developed a friendship first and then realized there was more. Both Charlotte and George have issues with love, and neither is ready to put their hearts on the line. It was clear that they enjoyed each other’s company and complimented each other’s personalities.

The side characters added to the story and were also a lot of fun to read about. Of course, my favorite side characters were the dogs. Bingley was a cute and energetic puppy and Duke is the older, well-trained dog.

I also enjoyed all the nods to some of the classic Jane Austen novels, and I loved that Hannah was a big fan. George is such a wonderful hero, he never tries to push Hannah, and instead, he waits until she is ready.
I highly recommend Pride and Puppies to anyone who enjoys romance. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own
