Book Review: Rescue Me, Maybe by Jackie Bouchard

This is a book review of Rescue Me, Maybe by Jackie Bouchard that was published by Lake Union Publishing on 25 August 2015.

Jackie Bouchard is a lover of books, dogs and laughter and has written 3 novels on what she calls 'fido-friendly fiction'. Jackie lives in San Diego with her Canadian hubby and rescue dog.

I admit I was drawn to this book because it had a dog on the cover and because the author loves to write heartwarming stories about women and the dogs that profoundly impact their lives. True to form this is a story of love, loss and hope featuring some 4 legged friends.

Jane is a middle aged women who loses both her husband and dog to cancer just months apart. With her marriage on the rocks for some time, Jane finds herself mourning the loss of her beloved pooch more than her husband.

To help with her grief and guilt and to find employment she moves towns and works as a cook at her family's bed and breakfast. Along the way, try as she might to fight it, she can't help but rescue another dog.

I liked all the characters in the book and even the interfering step mother was likable. While I'm a dog lover myself, I did find parts of this book pretty boring, it was just a bit too slow and sad for me.

I recommend this book to dog lovers and especially those that have lost their beloved 4 legged friend as you will find this to be a comforting read.

I give this book 3 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again

3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either

  1. This does sound like it'd be a good read for someone going through a loss of a pet... which can be so hard. :(


  2. I still miss our four legged friend. It's been two years since he passed. Sigh
