Hannah Legare is one hot mess.
Her husband has left her, her business is bankrupt, and she barely escaped death by falling off of the balcony trying to break into her home. So what is a girl to do when her life is obviously such a mess? She goes home.
Home happens to be Charleston. Home to her Mother & Step-Father. Home to her brother, Palmer. But "Home" is also the root of all of her problems.
On April 6th, 1985 Hannah's father set off in the family boat to do some fishing. The rest of the world writes off Buzz Legare as having been lost to the ocean. Hannah, on the other hand, is convinced that her father left them because her mother was cheating on him. She has spent her entire life searching for her father in every man she passes on the highway. Every man she comes across in this big, big world. She is convinced he is out there somewhere.
Can she let the past go long enough to put her life back together? Or will her time at home finally send her over the edge?
Men and Dogs was a fabulous read. I don't want to call it Chick Lit, but it is most definitely geared more towards women. The heroine is fabulously flawed. And that might make her more identifiable to the average reader than some of the fluffier books I read. Men & Dogs is an enjoyable, engaging read. Put it on your "TBR" list and you will thank me later.
