I'm at Quid Pro Quills today, featuring the fourth novel in the Women of Heart book bundle, Bestselling author Brandilyn Collins’s That Dog Won’t Hunt. I’ve read a few of Brandilyn’s “Seatbelt Suspense” books before, and I loved them. While this story doesn’t contain the type of suspense you often find in Brandilyn’s books, I found it was just as compelling. The characters were multi-faceted and easily likable, and there’s just enough humor to keep you wanting more. Here’s the blurb:
Meet the Dearings, a crazy, loving, boisterous family in small-town Mississippi. There’s mom and dad, three daughters and their families, and the youngest–twenty-five-year-old Ben. Oh, and the family dog, a Yorkie who thinks she’s royalty.
Ben is just sure everyone will love Christina, his new fiancée, when he brings her home for a family reunion. He always did wear rose-colored glasses. Christina loves Ben but secretly fears their relationship will nver work. She hasn’t told him about her horrific past as an only child.
Christina doesn’t know how to trust or be honest about her feelings. Being thrust into the middle of a tight-knit family like the Dearings is sure to send her over the edge. The Dearings are no perfect family, but they know how to love–if only Christina will accept it.
