 Can a feisty four-legged matchmaker help four best friends find the romance of their dreams?

When a handsome man from Gabby’s past agrees to a cross-country road trip, her master plan to re-launch her art career quickly morphs into an unexpected, romantic reunion.

Marney’s 9-1-1 emergency help arrives in the form of a rugged, blue-eyed cop. Now she has the perfect bodyguard to keep her safe during those dark, steamy nights…

The last thing Mia wants is a relationship…yet the headstrong florist can’t keep her hands off her sexy-as-sin ex-boyfriend.  Will she open her heart before he leaves town for good?

Jenny is a woman on a mission – she’ll even resort to dognapping to make her point! But can she teach a reclusive, emotionally-wounded tycoon that love heals all things?

Introducing Charlie, a cute little puppy with a bit of an issue with hyperactivity and the determination to find matches for a group of his friends.  Charlie was the binding element to the four short stories of single friends finding love.  While Charlie was a hit in each story, the first and last story were really the best for me.  The middle two fell just a tad short.

The first story, where we get to meet the energetic Charlie and his dog-sitter Gabby was definitely my favorite of the batch.  Her story of high school love separated by tough circumstances was fantastic - and I loved Gabby!  She is the outgoing artsy type and even if you don't read the rest of the stories, this one is worth getting the book.

Marney's love comes in the shape of an unnecessary 911 call and a visit from the local sheriff.  There's was a bit rushed for me, even for a short story.  Mia's story just wasn't very memorable, although I love Charlie's bra-eating escapade.  The dog will stop at nothing to get his chosen people together.

The book closes with Jenny - a teacher and dog lover that actually kidnaps Charlie for a short period of time, but all is good because in this story we have two happily ever afters and it was the perfect ending to this little mini-series.
