So many things missed the mark for me with this book. The most obvious: when the cover of a book has only a picture of dog you expect the dog to have a decent role in the story but nope, not this one. The dog is hardly mentioned as far as it affects the supposed lead character (Holly). Speaking of lead characters, there really isn't one even though the book jacket leads you to believe there is one. There are only several poorly developed, self-absorbed thirty-somethings who are trying to find love or belonging or whatever. Frankly, I'm not sure I even found any character likeable. Two Feathers had potential but his role is so small he's hardly worth mentioning. No focus in this story--which I don't always need but if there isn't focus there should be something else to redeem the book and this one lacks any redeeming qualities.
