A Quick Christmas "Cookie"

TITLE: Josey's Christmas Cookie
AUTHOR: Sharon Kleve
PUBLISHER: Books to Go Now
PUBLISHING DATE: November 23, 2012

FROM GOODREADS: n the blink of an eye, Josey lost the most important people in her life, her parents.

Can a hound dog named Cookie, a pair of Mourning Doves, and a passionate vet bring the holiday spirit back into Josey's life in time for Christmas?

MY THOUGHTS:  The author provided me an unsolicited copy for free in exchange for an honest review, and when I saw the Basset on the front, added to the concept that I wanted to work in a few Christmas tales this month, I started it right away. I don't read a lot of romance but I really like Josey and Clint's tale. The animals were a great addition and not only did we get a cute adorable Basset named Cookie, we also get talking Lovebirds. There were a few typos throughout, but it may have been a format issue when I loaded it on my Kindle.

This was a quick Christmas tale which can easily be enjoyed in one sitting. Cookie is absolutely adorable. The plot was a tad rushed, and I think this would have been a great full-length novel. That being said, I am glad I picked it up and would recommend it to any animal lover who wants something to get them in the Christmas mood.


BOOKER T'S THOUGHTS:  Cookie is such as sweet Basset.  People laughed at him because he had to wear a diaper - he was in a car accident.  But he eventually healed and you know what, those people who laughed will always be mean!  Also, my big brother Cooper used to have a Basset girlfriend who lived down the street, Suzie, so they will always be dear to our family.  Cookie gets 5 paws from me!

CASSIUS' THOUGHT:  This book had talking birds!  Talking birds I tell you.  I want one, or two or twenty.  Mom says no.  Says my birds have to remain outside and need their freedom.  Bummer!


  1. Great review this one looks and sounds very cute and adorable book!
