My Review

Love Laughter and Lots of Dogs is a feel-good, modern fairytale romance between two childhood friends from different walks of life. Lord Cory Winthrop, a banker who's dated models and other celebrities returns to his childhood home and reconnects with Kelly Taylor who has started a new business after being fired from her previous employment. She’s curvy, full of life and laughter, and very differed from the women he’s normally dated. For him, it is love at first sight and he never waivers when it comes to his feelings for Kelly (she’s the one!) in spite of some negative comments their relationship garners among the town’s gossipmongers.

Dating Cory is also a dream come true for Kelly who had a crush on him in her teens. Despite worrying about their class difference (he’s a lord she’s the mechanic’s daughter) she also doesn’t hide her feelings.

However, prince charming doesn’t do the rescuing. Instead, Kelly’s previous work experience comes in handy when someone needs to save the day with an event.

I loved that fact that the heroine was a curvy girl and I wish the model on the cover reflected this. The pets were cute and central to the story, creating a few ‘aaww’ moments.

There were no real conflicts as far as I’m concerned; even when their obvious class difference was stated, it ended up not playing any real role in their budding relationship. Most of the conflicts were external, which only served to strengthen their already established love for each other. Basically, they were two perfect people thrust together by life and they fit right from the start. I wish there had been a little more uncertainty, and therefore some necessary characters development.

The story is written in first person, from two POVs, which is normally not to my liking, and the author does some backtracking from on scene to another, which is something I also normally don’t like.

However, the author has a good writing style does a good job of showing her characters’ feelings. This is a well-written story and would most likely be enjoyed by readers looking for an uncomplicated love story with a few laughs along the way.
