THREE DOG NIGHTS is a standalone read and part of a series. Any place you start is a great place. you will probably go back to #1 to see how it all starts and then you will stick to it until the end, so be ready for some good reading. This story is just PERFECT to me. I love a story with a great hero, and Alexander the Great is just that. A strong heroine with a backbone and the courage to be her own person. There has to be a bit of laughter, happy tears, loving, a charge of the Calvary of Kilcannons and two matchmaking grannies. And of course, DOGS, lots and lots of DOGS of every size, shape, and color. GREAT read. I definitely recommend it.
Alex is a Greek chef. His family, the Santerini's own a restaurant in town as well as the next town over. They have been in the business for generations and Alex is the new generation to take over the role. It is not exactly what he wanted for his life but it is family and everything is about family. He doesn't feel he really has a choice. Otherwise he is pretty happy with his life. At the wedding of his mother to Daniel Kilcannon he meets Grace Donovan, the owner of the winery where their wedding takes place. She doesn't really give him any encouragement but he is determined to get her attention. She resist.
At that same wedding, her chef quits and walks out on her. She goes to his little cottage to beg him not to leave as she has a big interview coming up with a celebrity couple looking for a venue. At the cottage she finds three young puppies. She has no idea where they came from or what to do with them.
But the day is saved when Alex walks up looking for an item his granny lost while attending the wedding. Since dogs are the Kilcannon's business, he gets Grace and the three pups in his car and takes them to the big dog facility.
From that point on they are thrown together. Turns out Alex is a trained chef from French schools and he knows how to cook. She is beyond thrilled and talks him into working for her. Just want he wants, he now has her attention.
I LOVED this story. It has everything I love in a romance. A strong sexy hero, a strong, independent heroine. A few issues they both need to work through. And then there are all the family secrets that have Gracie and Alex solving to help Gracie find who she really is. The secrets were great and once they were on the trail it is hard to lay the book down. I couldn't. I just kept reading until I had been at it for almost 4 hours. WELL WORTH EVERY MINUTE. So far, this may be my favorite DOG book. I loved it. Well done Ms. St. Claire.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 11/10/2019.
