Blurb:
Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.


Last Week:
Lila studied her fingernails for a moment. This week she had painted them neon green which clashed with the blue scrubs she was wearing. It didn’t look all that good with her red hair and freckles either, but Lila had her own style and always had. 

“What are you going to do about the dog, Aria? I know you’re going to do something. I’ve seen that look on your face a hundred times before.” 

Aria laughed and started to tidy the papers and medication samples on her desk, a huge, mahogany antique that she had bought at a junk store and refinished just because she loved it. “What look?” 

“The one that says you’re determined to save the world.”

This Week:
“Not the whole world,” Aria teased. “Just my little corner of it.” She took a sip of cola from the can on her desk. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t give up colas. Probably she’d get fat when she got older. “What do you think, Lila? Do we have room here for an unwanted, difficult dog?”

Lila rolled her eyes. “Sure. When do we pick her up?”

Who doesn't have room for another dog? But, caring for a difficult one is beyond most people's ability.

I like this outcome! Excellent excerpt as always...

'Who doesn't have room for another dog?' Well, me. But then, I'm a cat person.

As someone with two 12 year old boxers adopted from a shelter in November, and two 10 year old boxers rescued from a pound yesterday, there's always room for one more!
