Puppy Love by Cara Malone

 

⭐⭐

This is a low-key, rather unconvincing romance. 

Marley St. James is thirty-seven. She’s a vet with partnership in a well-established practise but has a disastrous romantic life. She was emotionally (though not physically) involved with a married woman, Lillian, who claimed to have a bad marriage. That went south when Marley runs into Lillian’s wife at the supermarket and realises that Lillian was only stringing her along. With a history of choosing people who are unavailable in some way or another, Marley is just a tad jealous of all her friends finding the loves of their lives. Because all that Marley really wants is to love and be loved.

Blaire Baker is divorced. As a part of her healing process she attended a Buddhist retreat and has come back with a learning that everything is impermanent and therefore detachment is the key. Her mom’s dog, Toby, is Marley’s patient and Blaire and Marley meet when Blaire takes Toby to the vet. There is immediate attraction between Marley and Blaire which leads to further exploration. 

There is nothing exceptional about either Marley or Blaire – though between the two, Marley reaches you a tad more than Blaire. The relationship between them is at best, mundane. There is a distinct lack of chemistry and connection between them. Also, when Marley is so keen on forever, why she would get into a casual thing is inexplicable. The relationship smacks a little of desperation on Marley’s part. Blaire seems seriously superficial since it takes one conversation with her friend to change her ‘detachment’ world view. 

This one is entirely skippable.
