Have you ever started a book and within the first few pages, it was a winner. Puppy Love by the Sea by Traci Hall was one of those books for me. Choosy Bookworm introduced me to this book, and all I can say is THANK YOU! Ms. Hall is a new author to me, and this book will keep me coming back. I absolutely loved it.
It is a phenomenal book of love, between a father and his daughter, between a woman and her pets, all rescues, and of course between Sarah and Franco. Franco de Silva reopened the pet s

I thoroughly enjoyed Puppy Love By The Sea! Traci Hall weaves a story of romance, the love of animals and, as she likes to say, a happy ending. I highly recommend this feel-good book.

Charming, flirty story. Franco and Sarah got off to a rough start; adversaries and hostile after a misunderstanding of sorts. She had just outsed a puppy mill type business after a six month fight. When Franco bought the space and opened up a designer dog business, she thought he was just more of the same. Not a good way to start; looking for trouble and issuing a citation right off the bat. Franco was gorgeous, rich and hot; all things that made Sarah distrust him even more. Now his daughter, B ...more

I received a copy of this book for an honest review. "Puppy Love by the Sea" is a really cute, sweet, and fun book. If you love animals, romance, family, and a community that pulls together this book is for you. A great read for the beach or when you need to escape for a while. Traci Hall does a great job of pulling you into the story. I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading other books by Traci Hall.

What a cute little book. This was a fast read, it only took me a couple of hours. I started reading this late at night, and stayed up until I finished it.

The two protagonists in this story both work with animals. Sarah owns an animal rescue company, and Franco owns a pet store. The two are at odds in the beginning of the book, but soon they start to fall in love. This is a great book for animal lovers, and there is also a nice romance story.

What a great story. I truly loved the characters. Franco seems to be the perfect fit to the independent Sarah. Franco's daughter Bella is cute and funny. I found the book a pet relayed romance.

I loved this book. It has romance and the animals are part of the story not just a character that you hear about once. My strong woman is here and ready to show anyone that she means business. There is an adorable character in this book and I don’t mean the child or the animals. Although the animals come in second for me.

Puppy Love

If you want an easy read for a lazy afternoon, this is it. If you enjoy animal rescue stories, even better. Sarah has a heart for animals in need. She started out at an early age when she found a stray dog. She searched for its owner but didn't find them in time to save the dog from euthanasia.

Sarah is now an adult with her own rescue and is having trouble making ends meet. Enter Franco de Silva who is opening a new dog store in the very same place she managed to close down for selling

You know a romance is always going to have a happy ending but getting there can be bumpy, This book had some wonderful bumps along the road - misconceptions about each other was just the start. But with puppies, kittens and an adorable little girl in the mix it was a wonderful trip. I really enjoyed that true emotional interaction between the main characters was what drove this book forward.

Lucille is working at the church when the body of her brother-in-law slides out of the confessional and lands in her path. First her daughter's boyfriend is arrested, and then someone even closer to her. Lucille starts to investigate the crime on her own and what she uncovers is that people have been keeping a lot of secret. Can she get down to the bottom of what really happened? An interesting mystery.

A funny fast paste love story about a couple who start off disliking one another due to a mistaken opinion and end up realising that pride is a poor bedfellow.

Traci Hall also writes books under the name Traci E. Hall

My name is Traci Hall and I love to write...sounds like the beginning step of a program!However, I am not sorry that I love to write, so I guess I'm in it for the long haul. Finger cramps, slumped back and numb feet from sitting all day aside, there is nothing I would rather do than tell stories. Hearing back from readers makes it all wort
