Echoing the novels of Mary Alice Monroe, Allie Larkin, and
Holly Robinson, this charming debut novel tells the
unforgettable story of a rescue dog that helps a struggling
young outsider make peace with the past.
Addie Andrews is living a life interrupted. Tragedy sent
her fleeing from Chicago to the shelter of an unexpected
inheritance—her beloved aunt’s somewhat dilapidated home in
Eunice, Arkansas, population very tiny. There she
reconnects with some of her most cherished childhood
memories. If only they didn’t make her feel so much!
People say nothing happens in small towns, but Addie quickly
learns better. She’s got an elderly next door neighbor who
perplexingly dances outside in his underwear, a house
needing more work than she has money, a best friend whose
son uncannily predicts the weather, and a local drug dealer
holding a massive grudge against her.
Most surprising of all, she’s got a dog. But not any dog,
but a bedraggled puppy she discovered abandoned, lost, and
in desperate need of love. Kind of like Addie herself. She’d
come to Eunice hoping to hide from the world, but soon she
discovers that perhaps she’s finding the way back—to living,
laughing, and loving once more.

Re: Sit! Stay! Speak!
I want to know why the neighbor is dancing in his underwear and how she acquired a drug dealer's enmity.
