In Rescue Me, Maybe, Jane Bailey has lost her dog and husband to cancer. She felt guilty about her husband because of relational difficulties and because she grieved more for the dog. She decided to go back to her home town in San Diego.
On the way she stops in Arizona at a family B&B. While here she helps her Aunt Sugar run things for a short while. Soon she finds a hungry, very nice pup and she helps it. As with most dogs, this one made a change to Jane's life.
Whereby I was expecting this to be a tear-jerker, it was really a touching story in a positive way. The characters that Jackie Bouchard created are complex and quirky. There are themes of friendship, family and love throughout the book and anyone that is an animal lover will enjoy this book.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
