I’m a sad, lonely housewife who cleans up boogers and deals with Candyland fights. Give me something interesting here.

Well, the guy thinks white socks and black dress shoes go together and believes watching Jaws is a romantic night. I had my doubts.

So, before I get into my review of this, I'd like to offer a little bit of background on how I came to read this wonderful book. Let me preface this by saying that I love the area of central PA where I'm from, so much so that I moved back home after college. However, one of my very few complaints is that there's not much here for readers in terms of local authors, author events, or even bookstores (we have a local Barnes & Nobel and a Bradley's Used Books, and that's about it). So, when I ha ...more

I’m not going to lie, I don’t think one chapter in this book didn’t make me cry, happy tears, sad tears, lonely tears, confused tears… just tears. I was just a sloppy mess for this book. I know the dog that the book is written after so of course he was the easiest character for me to picture and he just pulled everything together for me.

If there is one thing I can always count on with Lindsay Detwiler it is the slow burn romance. I adore the fact that these two characters had some sort of instan

The Trail to You was a nice,sweet and endearing read.

I liked all the characters,humans,little humans and dogs.And a beautiful dog is the main character of this novel, as a matter of fact thanks to this big mastiff named Henry the story starts,develops and ends.
I don't want to unveil the plot because it's such a good journey to take blindly and just enjoy the ride.

I love Lindsay Detwiler's writing, her books are always heartwarming and I can't recommend them enough.

I enjoyed this book but there were a few little things that bothered me as I was a reading but it was my personal reaction to the story.

I felt so bad for Ronan and I couldn’t imagine the anguish he felt upon getting home and discovering both his mom and his dog gone. He truly did the responsible thing by asking his mom to watch Henry and then she just disappeared which left Ronan on a wild goose chase trying to find Henry. It made me sad every time he hit a road block.

I liked Ally and thought sh

This is the second book I have read by Lindsay. She writes slower burn romances. The characters have baggage and issues. They manage to help each other grow and discover themselves. Ally Hunter has moved across the country to start over and find herself. Ronan has just come back from a deployment to reunite with his best friend, Henry his mastiff only to find him gone. Ronan’s journey to find Henry leads him to finding Ally as well. Both Ally and Ronan have baggage from their past. Ally is still ...more

This was such a sweet, beautiful read. It was a definite heart warmer, with it's wonderful tale of a man's best friend and fate.

Ally has experienced loss and is trying to rebuild her life and find her place. For her love is not on the cards and she has built walls to protect herself. Henry

I was first drawn to this book because of the cover. I love books with animals in them. I'm so glad that I read this one because the characters love and appreciate animals as much as I do. The journey poor Henry takes, but where his end destination takes him makes it all worth it. He just had to spread his love around to those who needed it at the time. Ronan is a character that grabs your heart and his mission to find his beloved dog. Then you have Ally who is making some major life changes and ...more

Who is Ronan? What do we learn about him? Where is he off to and why? Who are Rose and Tina? Where do they work? What happens to Henry while Ronan is gone? Who is All? Where do we meet her? What type of work does she do? Who is Josie? Where does she run into Ally at? What ends up happening? What happens when Hank (a.k.a. Henry) ends up with Ally, it is so funny. Oh boy, do things get interesting when Ronan comes home. You need to read this sweet, touching romance. Enjoy! I did!

Heather Jasinski
The Trail to you by Lindsay Detwiler is such a light warm cozy story to read. Ally and Ronan had a difficult past and how those two meet is really heartwarming.

One of my favorite characters is Josie . I loved her encouraging Ally to go and be herself and if love happens it happens to not be afraid of it. Everyone needs a friend like Josie.

I was so excited when I got an email from the author asking me if I would read her newest book. I have been waiting patiently for her next book to come out and I couldn’t wait to get started.
