Once again, I am bringing you an exciting Blog Tour post! This time it is the lovely Michele Gorman’s Love is a Four-Legged Word.
Michele builds up each and every character with such richness, including the rather amusing Barkly, the greedy pooch. One paragraph that particularly amused me: “Barkley glued his eyes to the aluminium foil as she unwrapped it. Dog treats? Leftover sandwich? Was it even edible? It didn’t matter – could he get it into his mouth? Chicken! It’s chicken! Everybody, the lady’s got chicken!…” You can actually imagine that is the thoughts going through the average dog!
As well as the entertainment value, we see the rich bond between the characters. Scarlett and Shannon share more than their business though: they also share Scarlett’s husband, Rufus, who’s been Shannon’s best friend since childhood. It’s a cosy setup. Unless one of them has a secret…
When Scarlett and Rufus’s baby plans are decimated by a surprise turn of events, their marriage hits the rocks and they both turn to Shannon. All three relationships are pushed to breaking point, but when loyalties become divided, how do you decide who’s most important? The book has you embroiled in their high-emotional intensity until the end. I literally couldn’t put the book down until the very end.
This book has to be up there with one of my favourite click-lit books. I will definitely be looking out for more from Michele.
Michele writes books with heart and humor, full of best friends, girl power and, of course, love and romance. Call them beach books or summer reads, chick lit or romcom… readers and reviewers call them “feel good”, “relatable” and “thought-provoking”.
She is both a Sunday Times and a USA Today bestselling author, raised in the US and living in London. She is very fond of naps, ice cream and Richard Curtis films but objects to spiders and the word “portion”.
