From Claire Cook, New York Times bestselling author of the novel-turned-romantic comedy movie starring Diane Lane and John Cusack, comes Must Love Dogs: Hearts & Barks, Book 7 of the heartwarming and hilarious Must Love Dogs series.

In the charming beach town of Marshbury, Valentine's Day is in the air. But preschool teacher Sarah is feeling more relationship-challenged than ever. She just wants to survive February, the longest-shortest month of the year. John wants to elope, but it's not exactly easy to find someone to watch their ever-growing four-legged pack, which now consists of two dogs and five cats.

Teacher assistant and housemate Polly's baby bump is growing, too, and it's a constant reminder to Sarah that everybody else and their goat seem to be able to get pregnant like it's no big deal at all. Cupid's arrows are misfiring everywhere, and even Sarah's bossy big sister Carol's marriage could be heading for trouble. And Bayberry Preschool has declared a moratorium on Valentine's Day candy, so who's leaving those conversation hearts taped to the classroom door?
