I'm a 32 year old mom of two who loves to read (obviously)! I'll read just about anything - if it sounds interesting, it makes it's way to my to-read pile!

The Dog Walker: A Novel

The Dog Walker - Leslie Schnur It was a decent read, but nothing really to write home about. I realize that it's chick-lit and the basic premise of it is "girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, something happens and they fight/break up, girl and boy make up and live happily ever after". BUT, there was so much else going on in this story that it wasn't even remotely believable by the end. And then near the end, the author started doing little bits of foreshadowing "but that will happen later" - it didn't seem to fit with the rest of the story. And then there's Claire and how the author made her say "Ni-nah" every time she spoke. She already explained the way Claire said "Ni-nah" but did she have to type it out EVERY SINGLE TIME? But anyway, it was an ok book...it wasn't horrible or anything, just annoying (to me) in parts.
