I read this book as part of the anthology Must Love Pets: A Romance Box Set.I am honestly not entirely sure what to say about this book. It was odd. I don't know what this story really accomplished or what it was trying to portray in the first place. Stephanie loses her job and is then talked into getting William, a rescue dog with purported behavioral problems, by her best friend Heather. Mrs. Spangler and Mr. Weinperth are tenants in Stephanie's house, for which Gabe is also the handyman. Jean [...]
I listened to the audio version of this story, which is narrated by Sara Morsey. I've always been fond of reincarnation and ghost stories and this one did not disappoint. This story centers on Stephanie who is a workaholic woman who gets laid off of work after devoting her entire life to the company. Now in her mid-40's, she suddenly finds herself with no family, no job, and no love life. In an attempt to cheer her up, Steph's one remaining friend from childhood takes her to an animal shelter to [...]

Such a fascinating story that it was hard to put down. Stephanie O'Hanlon is a workaholic who is laid off from her job. She ends up adopting a huge dog from the shelter named William the Conqueror. Her friend insists that the dog is Stephanie's former lover. Gabe Fagen is the handyman for the three apartment building that Stephanie manages. Stephanie and Gabe were in love with each other as teenagers but now that the years have drifted by and they are now reunited Stephanie doesn't realize that [...]
Love this book! Short, funny, finished it in one sitting! And an amazing dog! You are going to Love William the Conqueror!
Lovely story, well told. I don't know why it is, but I especially loved Steph making ice cubes from her mother's coffee as a way of staying connected. I'm not much of a dog person, but I totally bought Steph's relationship with her dog, William the Conqueror. Last, but certainly not least, I adored Steph's sudden-yet-not-so-sudden attraction to Gabe, and his to her.
Quite different. Sweet romance in the background. The part about the dog and the past is not my style.
I wasn't too thrilled with the plot. The story felt rushed. I read it as part of the Must Love Pets boxset. Full review soon.
