Hello, readers. Thanks so much for coming to Beyond the Book. My name is Kara Cochrane. I'm Elaine's heroine in Her Kind of Man. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and since we were looking for a puppy for our son, we went to the animal shelter and found this cutie. Her name is Sasha. Do you like her? I think she's adorable. If you're looking for a dog, check your local shelter and save a life.
