Second Chance Ranch book #2
by Catherine Mann
A rescued dog returns the favor in the latest Second Chance Romance from USA Today bestselling author of Shelter Me.
Detective AJ Parker left undercover work in Atlanta to join a small-town Tennessee police force, hoping for an easier workload and the solitude of his cabin. But the scars left by AJ’s previous work are more difficult to escape than he thought…
Mary Hannah Gallo works with the Second Chance Ranch Animal Rescue to train therapy dogs for traumatized patients. It isn’t easy, but her life is under control—until she meets the broodingly sensual AJ, who rattles her composure all the way to her toes.
After an assignment confiscating dogs from a backyard breeder reveals a dangerous drug operation, AJ must work with sexy perfectionist Mary Hannah to train an abused rescue dog—a dog now named Holly. While Holly proves to these two very different people that opposites can, in fact, attract, she also knows more than a few explosive secrets that could heal—or divide—the entire town.
Rescue Me is the most extraordinarily heart-warming story I have ever read! I laughed, I cried, I felt good about life after finishing this book. Catherine Mann takes you on a journey of second chances for the people and the pets through out this book.
Reading from the perspective of Holly was so emotional for me, It made me hug my rescued fur-babies & shelled-baby just a little bit more. (Yes, you can hug a tortoise & mine gives cuddles right back!) AJ & Mary Hannah's story shows how two completely opposite people can come together and make each other whole again.
Please take a moment and check out the FB page of Sunshine State Animal Rescue, a wonderful place that is near & dear to Catherine Mann's heart! Do a little something for those who can't do for themselves. A few months back, my daughter & I collected towels and brought them to our local shelter (the same place we rescued our 2 kitties) it was something simple & easy and very much needed by the shelter. If you cannot adopt then volunteer some time, donate some kitty or doggie toys, even a container of litter.
