You Lucky Dog by Julia London
April, where did you come from?! Spring is in full force here in Florida and pollen notwithstanding, it is beautiful and I am soaking up every minute of it before it’s 100 degrees everyday.
This month we are reading You Lucky Dog by Julia London. This book is such a breath of fresh air. It feels like Spring and the book you’d want to read outside all season long. I love that it’s set in Austin as two of my brothers-in-law recently moved there and it was fun having that as the backdrop. The storyline itself is beyond adorable and I hope you love it as much as I do!
Carly Kennedy is on the struggle bus. In the midst of trying to keep her fledgling PR business afloat, she agrees to foster Baxter, the basset hound. One day she comes home to an entirely different dog after a mix-up with her dog walker. Instead, Hazel is waiting for her and Carly must track down her owner, Max Sheffington. Baxter and Hazel are polar opposites as are Carly and Max. But you know what they say…opposites attract.
From the Editors
Why We Chose It:
Y’all this book is the Spring book we needed! It’s flirty, fun, and just downright adorable. If you loved the movie “Must Love Dogs” this is the book for you!

You Lucky Dog was one of those gems I came across at the library and I’m so glad I did! Maybe it’s the yellow cover but it feels so springy and fun and there are so many layers to love in this story!
