About the Book:

From the author of Once Upon a Wine, a new novel set in the charming seashore town of Black Dog Bay, Delaware.

When everything has gone to the dogs . . .

When Jocelyn Hillier is named legal guardian for the late Mr. Allardyce’s pack of pedigreed Labrador retrievers, her world is flipped upside down. She’s spent her entire life toiling in the tourism industry in Black Dog Bay and never expected to be living the pampered life of a seasonal resident in an ocean side mansion, complete with a generous stipend. But her new role isn’t without its challenges: The dogs (although lovable) are more high-maintenance than any Hollywood diva, the man she wants to marry breaks her heart, and she’s confronted at every turn by her late benefactor’s estranged son, Liam, who thinks he’s entitled to the inheritance left to the dogs.

Jocelyn has worked too hard to back down without a fight, and she’s determined to keep her new fur family together. As she strives to uphold the “Best in Show” standards her pack requires, Jocelyn finds love, family, and forgiveness in the most unexpected places.

My Thoughts:

I’ve always wanted to read Beth Kendrick’s books, specifically those from the Black Dog Bay series, like this one, In Dog We Trust. This book did not disappoint. It’s a book for every animal lover, and especially every dog lover. 

Set in Black Dog Bay, Delaware, in Dog We Trust is Jocelyn’s story. She is the legal guardian for the late Mr. Allardyce’s group of Labrador retrievers. With that comes a pampered new life she never expected. The dogs are charming and lovable but super high needs. They are pedigreed, after all. 

On top of that, the man Jocelyn is supposed to marry leaves her with a broken heart, and Liam, the son of Mr. Allardyce, believes he should be the recipient of the inheritance. 

Jocelyn is a fighter, and she has every intention of keeping the dogs and winning at life again. 

Jocelyn is a character to champion. She is strong and fiercely independent. If you are an animal and/or dog lover, you will be drawn in immediately to this sweet story with a side of easy romance. Whether you are an established fan of the series, or a new reader like me, you can jump right in to Black Dog Bay and experience the fun and delightful story for yourself. Everything about this book and setting is warmhearted, quaint, and endearing. 

Thanks to Berkley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions are my own.
