Please Don’t Feed the Mayor is a light-hearted tale that differs slightly from the book blurb. Melanie loves Fossett and wants to find a way to save the town. Living in Fossett was the bone of contention between Melanie and Bryce which ultimately led to their divorce. Melanie feels that electing Shep as mayor will boost tourism. She contacts Bryce for legal advice and is surprised when he shows up in town. Bryce is now a lawyer at an elite firm in Portland and making good money. He has not stopped loving Melanie and would love to convince her to move to Portland. Please Don’t Feed the Mayor is a cute story filled with off-beat characters. There is the goat farm with the escaping goats, marijuana farmers who use a drone to monitor their property, a man who uses “Horrible Harry”, a rooster, for a truck alarm, a retired chicken farm (I am not kidding), and the woman who manages the B&B has no clue how to run it. The residents are warm, friendly people (except for Ron). I laughed at Shep’s antics (very clever canine). I did find that the story dragged in the middle and there was a lack of action. The activity ramps up for the climacteric scenes at the end. The ending is heartening and will leave readers smiling. There is an excerpt from Boomer’s Bucket List included. Please Don’t Feed the Mayor is a lively, humorous and romantic story.

What drew me to this book was the cover. I have owned three Border Collies, so there wasn’t much that was going to stop me from picking up a book with a Border Collie on the cover. I didn’t expect to enjoy this book quite as much as I did. Melanie lives in small town Oregon with her dog Shep. Shep is a rescue, having been let go by a family that simply couldn’t tolerate his herding their kids. Shep, like most Border Collies, needs a job. Fossett, Oregon needs something to bring it off life support. Melanie thinks she has a brilliant idea to have Shep be the mayor. Another resident of Fossett feels that he has the right to run for mayor as well, and that’s where the fun comes in. Melanie’s ex-husband is a high end lawyer in Portland. Formerly a prosecutor, he now works for a private firm as a defense attorney. Melanie and Bryce have been apart for several years, but Melanie needs help with the campaign and election, so she reaches out to Bryce. Bryce needs to escape Portland for a bit, and this gives him a great excuse to do so. This book has a little bit of mystery, a little bit of romance, a lot of doggie fun, and some great storytelling. Pethick gives us a good, clean, fun read that’s hard to put down. I was easily wrapped up in Melanie’s and Bryce’s stories, as well as getting to know Shep, the little furry devil. Shep is a very talented herder and performer. I only wish my Border Collies had been so well trained.
