Dogs Are Better Than Men
  1. They never brag about their ex's stunning cleavage.
  2. They don't moan or sulk if you're a half-hour late.
  3. They never tell you a Brazilian would really turn them on.

After her most recent disaster with the King of the Unrepentant Jerks, Isabel "Izzy" Palmer is finally convinced that the only male she truly needs in her life is Henry, her lovable part wolfhound, part who-knows-what. Henry's faithful, he adores her madly, and he's great fun to sleep with. So who needs the additional heartache?

But even armed with powerful knowledge and a new resolve, Izzy starts to feel that familiar itch ... and it's all because of Nick. He's a vet for goodness sake -- confident, handsome and compassionate -- if a bit rough around the edges. After teasing her about Henry's unusual looks and questioning her most recent choice in men, Nick then has the gall to turn halfway charming. But he doesn't stop at halfway, and though she already has a best friend, Izzy realizes it doesn't preclude her from having a perfect match, too.

Oh, I just loved this fun chick lit novel! At first, it was a little too English, but as soon as it got going, I started to really like it. It had some hilarious parts - like the way the main couple first met as children and it even had parts where I cried (partly because I was home along with Buns and it involved a missing dog). All in all, it was great fun and a fast and enjoyable read. I will definitely add her to my list of authors to look out for!
