Overview

Daniel Kilcannon, the veterinarian known as the Dogfather, has been widowed for four years. He's spent the time running the largest canine rescue and training facility in North Carolina and pulling some strings to make sure each of his six grown children find a love like the one he lost when his beloved Annie died.

But as the years slip by, Daniel's vow to never love again is starting to make him restless. When a woman who was pivotal to his past arrives in Bitter Bark, he wonders if her appearance is coincidence or the guiding hand of his dearly departed wife...but the truth is neither. She's about to change his life again in ways he could never have imagined. And Daniel isn't sure if his heart -- or his family -- will ever recover from the impact.

Like every other book in this popular series, the cover of Old Dog New Tricks was shot at Alaqua Animal Refuge in the author's home state of Florida using only rescue dogs (and local guys) on the covers. A portion of book sales is donated to Alaqua to save animals and help them find forever homes.

About The Dogfather Series
Daniel Kilcannon is known as "The Dogfather" for a reason. It's not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they'll tell you that their father's nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks...and he'll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

My favorite of the series. I figured out the storyline within the first few pages but couldn't wait to see how it played out. I'm happy for Daniel because I was so sick of Annie. Love all the characters, especially that they all love each other, stick together, and are just "good people".

WONDERFUL! Daniel and Katie's story and also Rusty and Goldie's story. I laughed, I cried, I stayed up til 4 am to finish it. (Never start a new book at 9:00 at night, unless you want to be sleepless the next day!) Roxanne has done a beautiful job on this book showing what a true blended family is. I am sure there are many more stories to come, we still have the cousins waiting in the wings. Bitter (Better) Bark is a town I would move to in a a minute just to meet these wonderful characters. Keep up the great work, Roxanne!

WOW!! I LOVE, LOVE, love Daniel’s second chance at love in Old Dog, New Tricks by Roxanne St. Claire, part of her Dogfather series. This wonderfully amazing story features widower Daniel Kilcannon, the Dogfather who found love matches for his six children. It is a story of two “seasoned” adults who after losing their one love of their life find that they are capable of loving more than their first love. This is a very emotional story so make sure you have tissues nearby. Katie was Daniel’s girlfriend in college who introduced him to Annie, the love of his life. Katie was torn about dating Daniel, as she loved Nico, her high school sweetheart from a strong Greek family. How was it that she could be interested in Daniel yet love Nico at the same time? After Daniel met Annie, he had eyes for no one. Each had met life’s puzzle piece that fit them perfectly. Fast forward forty-plus years with Daniel running into Katie, now a widow, in his home town of Bitter Bark, finding himself attracted to her once again; despite a promise he made to himself of never loving another. Katie was there on a mission, needing to let Daniel become aware of a problem that recently been discovered that went back to the time they once dated. Since Daniel wasn’t willing to move forward with Katie he was “Dogfathered” by his and her kids, getting them together and a second chance at having love in their life. There were definite themes in this story; family, ancestry, and puzzle pieces. A secondary love story occurs with Daniel’s dog Rusty and a rescue brought to the farm for fostering. Ms. St. Claire wrote an amazing story that was moving and filled with love, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that should definitely not be missed. This book is a standalone but includes characters from the previous books in this series. I highly recommend Old Dog, New Tricks to other readers and I am anxious for the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Book 9 in the Dogfather series is Fabulous! This time it’s the Dogfather’s turn to find love and have his children turn the table on him and be the matchmakers! Absolutely love this series. The Kilcannon family are amazing, and little do they know that the appearance of someone who introduced Daniel to his beloved Annie would cause so many emotions that impacts everyone by reappearing in his life. Love this family, love the dogs. Every book in this series keeps getting better than the one before - and that’s a high bar to surpass. A must read.

Oh my heart! Daniel, the Dogfather, has successfully managed to settle all six of his children into relationships and now it is his turn for a little romance in his life. Reluctant though he is, it happens anyway in the sweetest and most special way. I'm not going to give anything away because I want you to read this one! This could be read as a standalone but DON'T! Read the entire series! I recommend it and you will not be disappointed. Start at the beginning and binge your way through. You will not only find your happy place, you will be satisfied and your heart will be ever better off :) Rocki has promised this is not the end of the Kilcannon's as this is a big and extended family and there are cousins galore who need lovin' so we can only hope there are more around the corner! If you haven't figured it out by now, I highly recommend this one along with the rest of the series! **Received this ARC for review**

After reading the series I didn't know if I really wanted to read Daniel's story. But was I wrong!! This book is great!. I didn't know how Daniel was going to find a new love but he found an 'old' one. I should never have doubted the author. I was ugly crying while reading. Love a book that makes me cry.

Fall in love with the Dogfather and his family again. Lots of love, laughter and tears. What an amazing writer.

In classic Roxanne St. Claire fashion, Old Dog New Tricks is an emotional tilt-a-whirl from page one. Tissues are a necessity as there are many tears as Daniel works towards his second HEA. Longtime readers will appreciate the Kilcannon’s banding together to make things right. St. Claire is one of my go-to authors and this is no exception. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

The Dogfather and match maker of love, Daniel Kilcannon, finally gets his own love story. I have basically waited for the Dog-father's love story to be told since the beginning. The writing was on the walls, the possible love interest were piling up book after book and the excitement of waiting for it to be told was building stronger. I wasn't sure who was going to be the woman to win Daniel's heart but I never would have guessed correctly. This story had me in tears more then any book I've read, but also had me cracking up and really feeling like part of this crazy loving family. I so can't wait to read what Roxanne St. Claire will dream up to write about all the remaining and new family members in books to come.
