about book: (from Goodreads)

An accidental dog swap unleashes an unexpected love match in this new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.

Carly Kennedy's life is in a spiral. She is drowning in work, her divorced parents are going through their midlife crises, and somehow Carly's sister convinces her to foster Baxter--a basset hound rescue with a bad case of the blues. When Carly comes home late from work one day to discover that the dog walker has accidentally switched out Baxter for another perkier, friendlier basset hound, she has reached the end of her leash.

When Max Sheffington finds a depressed male basset hound in place of his cheerful Hazel, he is bewildered. But when cute, fiery Carly arrives on his doorstep, he is intrigued. He was expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with firm ideas about dog discipline. And Carly was not expecting a handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese. Baxter is besotted with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For his sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite.

my thoughts:

A sweet and delightful story about falling in love. Definitely a great book to have on a rainy day - perked me right up.

Carly's life is not going so great - too many feels all at once. Enter Baxter. A depressed basset hound that her sister convinces her to foster. Okay, not exactly what she wanted, but she's going with the flow - sort of. Anyhow, she comes home to find her dog walker has switched dogs on her. Well, not on purpose. And now, she's left with a very energetic pup named Hazel to deal with. Enter Max.  Carly meets him when she goes to switch dogs.  He's Hazel's owner.  The two dogs are smitten with one another. Thinking that Hazel will be good for Baxter's depression, Carly decides to spend time with her and Max. Of course, it might not just be the dogs bringing Carly and Max together.

London has written a cute and charming story about puppy love and falling in love. What a treat! You will just gobble this one up in a few short hours and be cheered up as a result. Definitely a fun book to fall in with.

I would happily recommend You Lucky Dog to fans of London and to anyone looking for their great read.
