The Dog Share (Paperback)

UK delivery within 2 weeks


'Brilliant and funny... I raced through it at 90 mph and was devastated at the last page and just wanted to go read it all again... Sheer genius... More please!!!!' NetGalley Review

Suzy Medley is having the worst day of her life when a shaggy terrier suddenly turns up at her door.

Just like Suzy, Scout has been abandoned, although only Suzy has been left with a financial mess and a business in tatters thanks to her ex.

Suzy takes Scout in and her chaotic world changes in unexpected ways: strangers have never been more welcoming and her teenage kids can't wait to come home to visit.

Then a chance encounter on a windy Hebridean beach makes things more complicated, because Suzy isn't the only one who needs a friend.

Scout has plenty of love to go round... but does Suzy?

A wonderfully funny and uplifting story about friendship and second chances (and whisky!), perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Jill Mansell and Marian Keyes.

Customer Reviews

In these times of lockdown, this is the perfect read! Take a trip, meet new people AND there's even a dog! Suzy has problems to solve and really needs a friend. Her ex has dumped her, leaving her with a business in dire straits when a dog turns up at her door. Taking him in, she finds he makes the perfect companion - always providing a listening ear and a waggy tail! She takes him with her to a Hebridean island to see to the business she needs to sort out and, during a walk on the beach, they encounter someone else who needs a friend . . . As anyone who follows my reviews knows I'm a sucker for a story with a dog in it, so I was always going to get on with this one. Fiona Gibson isn't entirely new to me - she used to write a column in our Sunday paper and I have read some of her other novels. It's a joy to read a book set in Scotland as well as one where the word 'whisky' (when relating to the Scottish drink) is spelled properly! This is an endearing story with many facets, based upon a realistic situation and showing off the best of Scotland. I loved the characters and absolutely adored Scout. Beautifully written and a very satisfying read, this is a book I'm happy to recommend to all lovers of a good rom-com and give it 4.5*.
