More lists with this book...
However: this book (excuse my language) was BALLS.
I *LOVE* Susan Donovan so I was really surprised, but I just could not even truly finish this. The heroine is a drop dead beautiful woman who thinks she's old and ugly. ...more
THE NIGHT SHE GOT LUCKY
OVERALL RATING: 4 LUCKY STARS!
Genevieve "Ginger" Garrison is tired of waiting for the one. After a failed marriage which left her with two teenage boys and an ex-husband who acts like a teenager too, finding a man is her least priority. But at the wedding of her best friend she meets Lucio "Lucky" Montevez, the hunky Spanish photographer.
I adore this book so much! The way the plot was ma ...more
Ginger Garrison has hit a rough patch. Her career at The Herald is over, her ex-husband keeps rubbing it in her face that she’s getting older, her sons keep eating her out of house and home, and her dress at her friend Josie’s wedding is a size too small. Now the crazy lady officiating the wedding is givin ...more
Book 2 in the dogwalker series from Susan Donovan was, to me, not as good as the first. While the hero/heroine did have chemistry, it wasn't enough to carry the book. There was very little excitement except for the climatic scene to wrap the book and some questions were left a bit unanswered. I liked the shower scene and would love to have a shower like the one in the book. It reminded me of another shower scene in another book by another author. ( I'll have to go back and re-read that ...more
Honestly, half the book was about that.
While Ginger's insecurities were overly stressed, Lucio's character appeared to be flatter than flat.Apparently he had some commitment issues which might have come from his nonexistent relationship with his father, but we never got to even scratch the surface of why he spent over 20 years hurting women right left and center. Apparently he me ...more

Ginger is 40, gorgeous, divorced, mother of twin 15 year old boys and dog owner. She is lso ridiculously obsessed with getting older. When the book opens she is a wearing a dress a size too small and she can't breathe, and throughout she spends time trying not to have emotions so she won't get ...more
This book was an okay read. I liked that it was about a woman-40 years of age with a set of teen age boy twins. In the beginning, I must admit that I was kind of turned off by a few things that I was reading but in the end it was an okay read.
Geneveve, auburn hair, tall, slender and 40 yrs old was married to her college sweetheart Larry who is now a Urologist. Their marriage did not last due to his love for younger females and fast cars. So they split up. He did a doozie on G ...more

They were my first books with Susan Donovan but I havent liked any of her others as much as I did those 2.
I think maybe its the plot of a group of dog walkers who happen to be best friends, who hate men then start to find love one by one.
Also the women are older than what I am used to from this genre of books.
Now I am not saying I hated it, it was a nice easy light hearted ea ...more

What I enjoyed:
* The twins and their bickering.
* The friendship between the dog walkers.
* The fact that Ginger believed in Lucky after being told some bad things (until she saw "proof" in writing).
* Lucky at this moment. He sounds like he was a complete and total jerk previously.
* Ginger was a great mom.
What could have been better:
* I knew who the villain was and why the instant the character was introduced. Way too ob ...more
