The Dog Park by Laura Caldwell
A couple's best friend?
Stylist Jessica Champlin knows it takes more than a darling goldendoodle to save a marriage. She and her ex-husband, investigative journalist Sebastian Hess, had too many irreconcilable differences for even their beloved dog, Baxter, to heal. So they've agreed to joint custody, and life has settled into a prickly normalcy.
But when Baxter heroically rescues a child and the video footage goes viral, Jess and Sebastian are thrown together again, and her life takes some very unexpected twists. The line of dogwear she creates becomes wildly successful, and suddenly she's in the spotlight with everyone watching—the press, the new guy she's seeing, Sebastian and the past she never imagined she would face again. Soon there's only one person by her side—and it's the person she least expected. She's willing to open up to a new normal…just as long as Baxter approves.
I have not read any novel of Laura Caldwell yet. I definitely enjoy reading this novel very much because it has so much character growth. Jess absolutely love her dog, Baxter. She got the dog when she was marry but got divorce and split custody on the dog. However, things change when her dog save someone. Her life will turn the unexpected. This novel has demonstrate how much a person can heal their pain and past in order to be in a better place. Jess is learning to let go of the past in order to find a better place in life. This novel definitely explain character growth. Good read!
