Fern Michaels is one of my favorite authors and this book did not disappoint. Loved the dogs Zip and Rosie and all they got up too. Set in New Orleans, with the sites and sounds as a back drop. Josie did not have much luck with men and was not sure it had changed when she met Paul. She thought he only wanted her for a dog sitter. Paul has issues of his own that he had to deal with to find his way to Josie. Cute story and a good romance, I liked it.
