Fetching Sweetness, by Dana Mentink {book review}

About the book

Standing between Stephanie and her dream is one hundred pounds of lovable trouble.

It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author’s valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.

But Agnes’s canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.

When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog…thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.

Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it’s a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.

What I thought about the book

What an enjoyable story! I must admit, I think Sweetness stole the show, with his habit of finding and rescuing other creatures. I like the way Rhett is searching to serve God, and Stephanie reluctantly realizes she is following God's plan for her life after all.

It is a mostly lighthearted read, but does also touch on some deep topics. If you enjoy stories about dog antics, you'll enjoy Fetching Sweetness. Be sure to enter the Fetching Sweetness prize pack giveaway!
