Kiwi To My Heart

It’s easier to be brave with a good dog by your side. Leslie Durant, owner of Pretty Paws, doesn’t care that she’s always giving all of her time and attention to others: it’s worth the joy of helping abandoned animals find loving forever homes. But if she can’t find a way to bring more money into the struggling shelter, the sacrifices she’s made will all be for nothing. Then her brother leaves her with an inheritance, with two stipulations: she must work with her estranged mother to host a successful charity event and find a loving home for Peter’s dog, Kiwi. But Leslie’s not sure she can forgive the woman who cowered in a corner while Leslie’s father hit her. Kiwi was severely abused before Peter adopted her. No matter where Leslie places Kiwi, the nervous cockapoo keeps showing up on her doorstep. She seems determined to stay with Leslie, no matter what. Even though Kiwi is terrified of everything, the sweet little dog makes Leslie feel braver. With Kiwi by her side, can Leslie save the shelter, face down the demons of her past, and take the risk of forgiving the mother who let her down when Leslie needed her most? The Kiwi To My Heart is the sixth and final book in the Soul Mutts series, heartwarming stories of lost dogs finding new homes with the humans they were born to heal.

Pitty Party

Sometimes the best medicine is a dog who loves you. Maggie Allen hates being a delivery driver, but she can’t leave her small town to find a better job; her father’s too sick to take care of himself, her younger brother Jake can’t stay out of trouble, and her nagging aunt won’t stop meddling in their lives. The last thing she needs is a dog to take care of. Especially one that’s spent most of his life chained up by neglectful owners. But when Dad goes behind her back to adopt a pit bull named Cappuccino, she has to admit that the dog is good for the family — Dad’s tackling physical therapy with new determination, and Jake’s been helping out more. Despite the messes he makes, Maggie’s fond of the eager-to-please dog. Her luck can’t last, though. In his enthusiasm to please, Cap accidentally disconnects Dad’s oxygen, convincing Aunt Josephine that Maggie can’t do anything right. Can Cap keep Maggie sane —and the whole family safe — when Josephine moves in and turns the chaos up to 10? Pitty Party is the fifth book in the Soul Mutts series, heartwarming stories of lost dogs finding new homes with the humans they were born to heal.
