Omg omg omg how could I resist these cutie pies on the cover?

The seven perfect things – the 7 puppies and the one child who found them, one elderly man, mourning the loss of his wife, who helped her, and one mother, who had just escaped the clutches of an abusive husband. It was their story.

A beautiful book by author Catherine Ryan Hyde, the story was as cute as it was relatable. The characters were well developed where each had lived a tough life. I loved their dynamics, as their true nature slowly came out under the care these puppies required.

A well plotted story with a gripping storyline, read with a melting heart at the antics of these puppies, the writing caused my emotions to be evoked, but the puppies made me smile through the tough ones. A few challenges faced by the characters as they rose up to show me their strength. All these and more made it a wonderful read.

Oh, who am I kidding? It was always these puppies who stole my heart and made me read their story.

Thirteen-year-old Abby Hubble lives in an unhappy home in the Sierra Nevada foothills where her father makes life miserable for her and her mother, Mary. One day Abby witnesses a man dump a litter of puppies into the nearby river. Diving in to rescue all seven, she knows she won’t be able to bring them home. Afraid for their fate at the pound, she takes them to an abandoned cabin, where all she can offer is a promise that she’ll be back the next day.

To grieving widower Elliot Colvin, life has lost meaning. Looking for solace, he retreats to the hunting cabin he last visited years ago, before his wife’s illness. What he discovers is not at all what he expected: seven puppies and one determined girl with an indomitable heart.

As Abby and Elliot’s friendship deepens, Abby imagines how much better her life—and the puppies’ lives—would be if her mother were married to Elliot instead of her father. But when Abby’s father moves the family hundreds of miles away, Abby and her mother must decide how long they’re willing to defer happiness.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
