When jaded and overworked Los Angeles literary agent Daniel Ashe hires Annie Doherty, an Irish dog walker, he’s simply looking for someone to care for his dogs so he can focus on landing a dream client and save his career. He certainly doesn’t expect to come home each night to find Annie has left him a new and fantastical story about the secret lives of his dogs—or that she’s cast him, a man who doesn’t believe in love, as a romantic hero. Now his nights are spent in a fantastical sea world, a magical circus, and the kingdoms of wonder and discord where these characters live.

5 +++++ STARS The Dog Walker’s Diary is one of those rare books in which the storyline, the emotions, and the characters just come together flawlessly to create a perfect read! I will go ahead and tell you that this book is in the top 10 reads for me for 2018 as well as an all-time favorite read! Who knew two people could fall in love by writing to one another in a dog walking journal!!! This is just one of the elements of this book that made it so very witty and clever. Daniel is a literary agent that has given up on love and somewhat on his own dream of being a writer. When he hires Annie, he really has no clue how much his life is going to change. Both Daniel and Annie are quirky characters that will stay with me for quite some time. Oh my gosh, Daniel has a hilarious phobia of redheads, and guess what...Annie is an Irish redhead. He reaction to seeing her the first time is priceless and very FUNNY! Not only is this a romance, but it’s several stories wrapped up into one book. How the writer did that so well amazed me! For example, there were diary entries chronicling the secret lives of his dogs, along with some twists added in as well. I have two favorite things in life...dogs and books! So, I couldn’t wait to grab this book. I’m also a dog Mom to two yellow labs myself, and I had high hopes for this book. My expectations were blown out of the water. Donahue’s writing was flawless. I always say there is a difference between a story and a book. A story captures my mind and my heart, and this book did that. Donahue is much more that just a writer; she is a storyteller. We don’t have enough of those in this day and age, and I’m so excited to see what she has in store for her readers next!!!!
