about the book

Fetching Sweetness by Dana Mentink (Love Unleashed book 2)

Fetching Sweetness by Dana MentinkNow that Stephanie Pink has broken off a bad engagement, a new career opportunity appears to be just the distraction she needs. Presented with the chance to achieve her dream of becoming a full-fledged literary agent, Stephanie seeks to retrieve a coveted, handwritten manuscript from reclusive author Agnes Wharton.

Things go awry when Agnes’s dog, Sweetness, runs off during their meeting. The distraught author gives Stephanie an ultimatum: find her dog or Stephanie will never see the manuscript. While combing a nearby campground for Sweetness, Stephanie meets Rhett Hastings. Unbeknownst to her, he’s a former CEO and bazillionaire who walked away from the very world she’s trying to enter.

Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog, and so begins a high jinks-filled adventure in a thirdhand RV. Will Stephanie ever obtain the elusive manuscript and launch her career? Or will she see that maybe, just maybe, Rhett’s choice for a simpler life is really what she needs?

my thoughts

Fun, fun, FUN!!! This book is just packed with all of my favorite things!!! Dogs… check! Book lover… check! Movie lover… check! Road trip… check! Humor, faith, romance… check, check, check!!! I eagerly anticipated this book because I thoroughly enjoyed the doggy adventures in Sit, Stay, Love, book 1 of this series.

Stephanie Pink is a fabulous quirky bookworm. Obviously, I love her… we book nerds stick together! When a book deal goes wacky, Stephanie finds herself abandoned and searching for Sweetness, a dog she’s never seen. Rhett Hastings is a little bit gruff on the outside but he’s working on that. He’s a movie theater mogul on his way to living the simple life.

Stephanie, Rhett, and company pile in for an unforgettable road trip full of surprises, mishaps, and lively conversation.

I requested the opportunity to read and review this title through NetGalley. I also received a paperback from the author. The opinions expressed are my own.
