I never saw that coming at all but it was perfect. It comes full circle but with a major twist. I read it from start to finish I couldn’t wait to read the next page. Another great book and story. I so can not wait for Cassie’s and Braden’s story.

An awesome read. Daniel, aka The Dogfather has been busy matchmaking his children and now it is his turn. A second chance romance between Daniel and Katie, a short lived college romance. Both had wonderful marriages and suffered the loss of a spouse. Will they be able to open their hearts again? This is an awesome read full of emotion, many happy and sad tears were shed. With a plot twist it will keep you turning the pages. Loved the romance between Rusty and Goldie, they were perfect for each other. Can't wait to read the next book!! This was my favorite book of the series. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the series.

Another fantastic Dogfather book! Every time I think the last book in this series was my favorite, a new one is added to the series by the phenomenal author, Roxanne St. Claire. This book has everything, it made me laugh, it made me cry. Loved the new characters! I could not put the book down, had to force myself so I could go to sleep. Interesting to read how loss is handled differently by all of us. Loved the introduction of the new family, the Santorinis, can't wait for their books. Roxie, you outdid yourself!!!

Wow! This is one of the best books that I have ever read by Roxanne St. Claire! I have especially loved this Dogfather series not only because each story is so amazing but because they each feature a lovable canine. As a dog lover, it is definitely a bonus. I have watched as Dr. K. has orchestrated love matches for all his children. Now, it is his turn to find his HEA. I loved every single thing about this book. The story of Daniel and Katie just grabbed me and wouldn't let go. It is such a beautiful and amazing romance. I don't want to give away anything and ruin this book for any other reader so I will just say it is a totally big 2 thumbs up. I really think the series should be read in order because you really get to know each character and fall in love with this wonderful family.

I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Old Dog New Tricks for an honest review. I honestly loved this book! I am not sure how Roxanne St. Claire continues to deliver such amazing stories, but she has outdone herself with Old Dog New Tricks. Each book in the series gets better and better. Old Dog New Tricks is Daniel Kilcannon's story, the Dogfather himself. I am so glad that Daniel got his own story and a chance at another happily ever after. There were so many potential woman introduced in the previous Dogfather books, and each of his children was rallying for his or her favorite. None of those women was a perfect match for the Dogfather. Katie Rogers Santorini is a woman from Daniel's past, whose own husband Nico died two years ago after a long battle with cancer. Katie has 5 children of her own, obviously more candidates for the Dogfather's matchmaking abilities. Katie returns to Bitter Bark with a secret of her own. She has not been back to Bitter Bark since she left Vestal Valley College in 1976 to return home to Chestnut Creek and her one great love, Nico. Katie's secret was discovered when her children agreed to what they thought was harmless DNA testing the prior Thanksgiving. The results of those test are life changing for both the Kilcannon and Santorini families. Daniel makes changes to his home to make room for Katie. But can he break the vow he made to himself, to never love again. This book is filled with so many touching and poignant moments, as both Katie and Daniel reminisce about their marriages. Of course there is a dog in the book. She’s a lovely red golden retriever, named Goldie that Rusty becomes attached to. They have their own story within a story. Roxanne once again includes her plot twist that is a deal breaker. Love her plot twists as much as I love her happily ever afters! Love getting caught up with the Kilcannons. Make sure you have your Kleenex ready, lots of tears were shed while I was reading Old Dog New Tricks. Highly recommend. Cannot wait for see how the Dogfather will work his matchmaking magic with the Mahoneys and Santorinis.

I cried for loves lost. I cried for love found and sighed. I cried for both wonderful families. I cried for Rusty – big river tears. I cried for the uncertainty and turmoil that all went through. I cried for sweet Goldie. I laughed out loud and scared my dogs. My favorite quote, “I think we’ve been dogfathered!” This was a much anticipated story and Rocki did a wonderful job. It was perfect!! Now to restock my tissues for the next one.

We've all been waiting for the time when Daniel, aka "The Dogfather", would get a second chance as love after matching all of his children with their loves. Yea, the time has come! The Kilcannon's are great people with deep, deep love for each other and for their four legged friends. Daniel promised himself as his wife lay dying that he would never, ever love another woman. The appearance of a woman from his past challenges that promise. He must struggle with himself to see if he should have sworn that to start with. Is it what his beloved Annie would have wanted for him? What of his children? Would he be doing a disservice to them to get involved with another woman? His old friend, Katie, is not making it easy on him. Will his desire to love and to make love to her win the day? Katie sure hopes so! They share a secret that must come out. Will it destroy both of their families? This book is filled with family issues, good and bad. There is drama galore, love, forgiveness and the eventual acceptance of circumstances that can't be changed. This is a wonderful addition to the series!

I just love this series and I am so glad that Daniel got his story. Daniel has helped his children get their HEA and now they want to help him. He thinks there can only be one love and he had that with Annie. But, there is someone who makes him question that. Katie is an old friend and she had a wonderful marriage to a wonderful man and isn't sure she will love again. But seeing Daniel after all these years, she thinks she might be ready after all. The problem is, she has a secret that could tear apart both of their families.

Old Dog New Tricks is a great second chance romance. That second chance shows up forty years after they first met with a completely unexpected surprise. Daniel and Katie had met in college, and while they had been attracted to one another she found herself pining for the love she’d left behind at her parents’ insistence, and Daniel found himself inordinately attracted to Anne, a friend of Katie’s they were trying to set up on a blind date. Forty years ago, everything had worked out wonderfully because Daniel helped reunite Katie with the boyfriend her parents didn’t approve of and Anne turned out to be Daniel’s soulmate. Flash forward, Katie shows up in Bitter Bark. What ensues is a heart warming and potentially heart breaking reunion full of surprises, memories and love. This is not a story of the youthful passion of young love, but instead explores the deeper connection of two people who had found the love of their lives and perhaps have a second chance at finding another connection. There’s even a doggie “romance” between two older pups, one who has lost her furever companion and can’t seem to find any joy until she meets Rusty. Of course in addition to the relationship between Daniel and Katie, there is a whole other connection between their two families. Looks like the Dogfather might have the opportunity for more matchmaking in the future.

I can’t say enough about this book, I just love this whole series with all my heart. “Old Dog” was probably one of the most anticipated books for me. I must admit I wanted Daniel for myself …. But since that’s not quite possible, being as he’s fictional ... I’m really glad how it turned out. I love this family, and this series of books so much. You MUST read this series!! “Old Dog” has all the fun, and adventures of all the other Dogfather books, with heartwarming tears, and the revisiting of old friends and pups from the other books. I was literally on the edge of my seat and couldn’t stop reading. So …. Um, Where can I buy a ticket to Bitter (Better) Bark? Looking forward to MANY new Dogfather books!!

I love the Dogfather series of books by Roxanne St. Claire. I have been looking forward to Old Dog New Tricks because the Dogfather, Daniel, is finally going to get his happy ever after. As a widow myself, I was wondering how Roxanne would handle the story line. As I expected, she handled it perfectly. The story rang true to how one feels after loosing the love of your life and trying to navigate a life without your person to be by your side. I loved this book about Daniel and Katie, and know you all will also. I highly recommend the whole series as each story is well written and heart-felt.

This book is FINALLY Daniel "The Dogfather" Kilcannon's story. After losing Annie, the love of his life and the mother of his 6 children, Daniel never thought any other woman could even create a flicker of interest in his broken heart.....but boy was he wrong. When a girl from his past, the same one who introduced him to Annie comes back into his life, he thinks that maybe Annie is trying to pull some strings to help Daniel move forward in his life. Unfortunately that is not the reason that Katie Rogers Santorini comes back around. Instead she has some information that is going to throw Daniel's life into a tailspin. As these two decide how to deal with the fallout her news has created, they start to spend a lot of time together, even meshing their two large families. Katie is now a widower and is ready to move on, but Daniel is not so sure. It will take all 11 kids, their spouses and grandchildren to be able to get these two to their happy ending....but man is it worth it! If you have been reading this series, then be prepared for a really emotional ride....no I mean REALLY EMOTIONAL!!!! I loved Daniel and Katie's back story. I loved the people they both have become and together they both deserved this happy ending. As with all the books in this series, there is a new dog, a new baby and a possible new romance. I'm so excited and cannot wait for the next book. Thanks for the perfection this story brought!

Absolutely loved this story!! Fans of this series will be thrilled to know that after helping all the Kilcannon siblings find love it's time for the Dogfather, Daniel Kilcannon, to find some happiness of his own. Of course it won't be easy and there is a huge surprise in store for him along the way but in the end there is a whole lot of happy. This story is wonderfully written and with the introduction of several amazing new characters I see some great stories coming our way in the future. I for one can't wait! If you're new to the series you can still read this book and appreciate Daniel's story. Do yourself a favor though, read the whole series. I definitely recommend it.

Life has a way of mending a broken heart in the most ironic of ways. Old Dog New Tricks gives a second chance to two grieving hearts. Daniel and Katie had their chance to fall in love, but the timing wasn't quite right. When their paths cross years later, will their hearts be ready this time? Roxanne St. Claire has crafted a romance that's a timeless work of art. Emotions run deep in the Kilcannon family and It's a pleasure to be invited along for the ride.
