10/10 dogs agree that this book is perfect for readers who have a sweet spot for:

•Service puppies looking for a forever home
•Christmas stories with…(wait for it!)…PUPPY LOVE!
Lila Vasquez might not be the "fun one" at Puppy Promise—the service puppy training school she runs with her sisters—but she can always be counted on to gets things done. So when her latest client shows an interest in princess gowns over power suits, Lila puts aside her scruples, straps on the glittery heels, and gets to work.
If only the adorable six-year-old's father wasn't such an appealing Prince Charming.
Ford's whole life revolves around his daughter...until he meets Lila. Smart, capable, and amazing at helping Emily gain confidence with her new service puppy at her side, Lila is everything he ever wanted—but she's way out of his league. Good thing Emily and her new pup are up to the matchmaking task. This Christmas, it's all hands (and paws) on deck!
Gilmore's enchanting, laugh-out-loud second Service Puppies contemporary (after Puppy Love) is grounded by serious themes. Lila Vasquez runs a service dog academy with her sisters, who convince her to wear a fluffy pink dress to an elegant gala. She's ready to disown them, but then sobbing six-year-old Emily decides Lila is a real-life princess and Lila realizes that the girl's father, Ford, would make an ideal Prince Charming. Ford, a lighthearted illustrator, has one priority: helping his beloved daughter cope with going deaf. When a charity connects them with Lila's business, Lila pairs Emily with a darling cockapoo puppy and falls in love with Ford. Readers will be completely satisfied by the sensitive yet unsentimental way in which Gilmore portrays a young girl's disability, a divorced father's fretfulness about relationships and his own worth, and a beautiful woman's insecurity. Gilmore's generous novel is as appealing as a puppy.
