BookSparks: House Trained by Jackie Bouchard #Review

Alex Halstad, a childless-by-choice interior designer and dog mom, is a true perfectionist. But her orderly life turns chaotic when the teenage daughter her husband, Barry, never knew he had shows up on their doorstep...with a baby girl of her own in tow. While Alex’s dog enthusiastically welcomes the new arrivals, Alex struggles with the loss of her steady routine. She desperately needs peace and quiet to get her business back on track before Barry finds out she’s spent most of their savings. Meanwhile, the arrival of the girls stirs up old insecurities, and Alex can’t help but worry that Barry’s ex will make an entrance too. With her tidy life a distant memory, will Alex be able to learn from her dog the true meaning of love and acceptance?

This one had me from the start. The laugh out loud first sentence had me hooked.  But then the book goes into some serious life’s lessons, dreams, secrets, and more.  I think this book would have been a 5 star one for me if the rest of the book would have been as light and funny as that first sentence. 


 Go Into This One Knowing 
Light start, kinda preachy in the middle, good ending
