Book Review: Love is a Four Legged Word by Michele Gorman

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.

This is such a lovely story. We meet best friends Scarlett and Shannon spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur, running their dog business together. Scarlett’s intensive training course, Ruff Love, fixes owners as much as their pets. From the very off the book had me laughing out loud as Scarlett attempts to hide her embarrassment after being knocked over and having her leg humped by the rather amorous Murphy. 

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.
