WATCH THE MOVIE Must Love Dogs by Claire Cook

APRIL is Pet Photo Contest month!  So, we have a themed book to read, but will spend our Thursday evening watching the movie based on the book. Popcorn, movie snacks and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided.

 

This utterly charming second novel by Cook (Ready To Fall) is a fun read, perfect for whiling away an afternoon[.] Sarah Hurlihy is 40 years old, divorced, and happily teaching preschoolers a multicultural curriculum. But her interfering, overzealous Boston Irish family thinks that she should be dating, and with much love she is pushed into answering a personal ad from a gentleman seeking a lady "who enjoys elegant dining, dancing and the slow bloom of affection"; the clincher is that he's a man who "loves dogs." That man turns out to be the last man on earth any woman would want to date, but Sarah pushes on, slowly falling headlong into the dating game with decidedly mixed results. Meanwhile, Sarah's widowed father has his own dating troubles, brother Michael is deep in marital problems, and sister Carol is having difficulty at home with her temperamental teenage daughter, who turns to her favorite aunt for comfort and body-piercing support. Somehow, they all seem to end up on Sarah's doorstep at the most inopportune moments, keeping the laughs going all the way to the not-quite-storybook-perfect ending.
