Every Dog Has His Day by Jenn McKinlay

Setting: Bluff Point, Maine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: January 2, 2018

Bar owner and nice guy extraordinaire, Zach Caine is happy doing his thing. He loves his job. He has a cozy home and no responsibilities other than to himself and his employees. He's settled in for an afternoon football game when a knock on the door disrupts him. He never expects to see two young girls on his doorstep. Their foster kitten is on his roof and they need his help.

Single mom Jessie Connelly knows all she needs to know about her bachelor neighbor. His antics in the veterinary clinic where she serves as office manager didn't start them off on the right foot. He's certainly good-looking, but he's not one for a commitment and Jessie's had enough of men who like to come and go as they please. Her daughters, however, have really taken a shine to him and his foster dog.

When a snowstorm and resulting power outage strand the four and their pets together, Jessie's surprised by her feelings. She can't ignore that Zach seems like he could be Mr. Right. Zach's equally taken by the single mom and her daughters. Could she really be the woman that changes his bachelor ways?

Strengths and Weaknesses

I found no real weaknesses in Every Dog Has His Day. It's a heartwarming story where the focus is on building relationships. I loved the passion between Zach and Jessie, but I also loved how quickly they could turn it off to focus on what was best for the girls. They made a great team!

Having read this book, I feel compelled to go back and read the other books in the "A Bluff Point Romance" series. Every character made me smile. By the time I was done reading, I wanted to become a member of the Maine Crew.

RTR's Bottom Line

I've missed other books in this series. Despite that, Every Dog Has His Day turned out to be a charming, warm-hearted romance. I didn't want to stop. I was caught up in the blossoming romance between Zach and Jessie. I adored his interactions with her two young daughters.

This is a sweet, passionate romance that was entertaining and uplifting. In a world where the news is rarely happy and the weather is dismal, Jenn McKinlay's latest romance offered the escape I needed. I thank her for that.
