About the Book:

Take one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you're ready for a lesson in love...Tippy style.

Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother's elderly dog, Tippy, he's quick to call on a pet-sitting service.

Gina isn't thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can't abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.

As Gina travels through Cal's world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too...

Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.

My Thoughts:

What a fun story!  This was a great summer read, and "Sit, Stay, Love" will have you giggling on one page while tearing up on another.  Tippy is hilarious!  I wouldn't mind a pup like her!  The story reflects on judging someone without really knowing them first.
Cal tries to come across as a typical professional jock, but he has more layers than even he realizes. And Gina seems like a scatter-brain, but her heart is huge, and she draws the real Cal out for us to fall in love. If you have ever known you were more than you appeared and just wanted a chance to show your real stuff, this is a story that will resonate with you.
My thanks to my friends at Harvest House Publishing for an advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  I'm giving "Sit, Stay, Love" my 'One to Watch' award.  This book is available now, and the sequel "Fetching Sweetness" is up on my to-be-read list.  I'll review that one soon, but until then...

Mark Your Place,
