Staff Pick & Review by Elizabeth M.

Anyone who's ever loved a pet will find it impossible to resist Sue Pethick's humorous and touching love letter to the animals who make us better humans.

About:

When her cuddly canine companion Boomer is diagnosed with a rare heart condition, Jennifer Westbrook decides to take a leave of absence from her busy PR job---and take Boomer on the greatest road trip of his life. Along the way the two meet a curious but very cute reporter, Nathan Koslow, and Boomer takes such a shine to him that Jennifer can’t say no to letting him tag along on their trip. And soon the three are off on a whole series of wild and unexpectedly wonderful adventures.

It almost seems as if Boomer's last wish is that his two favorite humans fall madly, deeply in love…

Boomer's Bucket List, is the rare kind of novel that reminds us how important animals are in our lives, and how often they are wiser than us.

Everyone I know who has read this book has absolutely loved it. You may need some tissues to finish this one, and when it is over, you’re going to want to find your special furry friend and cuddle extra close to them!
