Book Review: In The Doghouse by Teri Case

Title: In The Doghouse
Author: Teri Case
Release: April 16th 2019

Description: Skip is a rescued dog who wants to matter. He loves living in a blissful pack with his human couple, John and Lucy, and he has bow-vowed never to lose them. But when John walks out after seven happy years, Skip and Lucy’s world is turned upside down. Skip is determined to guide Lucy through her identity crisis, but he’s guarding a secret: he’s to blame for the breakup and her broken heart.

Review: 5 out of 5 Stars

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a novel written primarily in a dogs point of view but I wasn’t disappointed. Skip is a lovable, loyal Wolf/labrador mix who sometimes is written a little too human, but it works. Dogs understand more than we give them credit for, which this novel plays on, and elevates that.

I loved reading Skip and Lucy’s journey together after John, and the wonderful array of secondary characters that join them.

I often discuss on my podcast about what our dogs might be thinking and this novel is great for those who might wonder the same. Heart-warming and funny, a must for dog lovers.

I received an advance copy from NetGalley for an honest review
