Blog Tour: "The Dog Park" by Laura Caldwell { #BookReview & #Giveaway }

The Dog Park Badge

Hey guys - I recently read a book called "The Dog Park." I received it free to read and review on my blog.

Book info:

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.
LAURA CALDWELL, a former trial lawyer, is currently a professor and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She is the author of eleven novels and one non-fiction book. She is a nation-wide speaker and the founder of Life After Innocence, which helps innocent people begin their lives again after being wrongfully imprisoned. Laura has been published in thirteen languages and over twenty countries. To learn more, please visit

My Take on the book:

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read. I think you would thoroughly like The Dog Park. Even if you aren't a "dog person" per se. I am actually more of a cat person, but I still really liked this book.

It is about a couple who have divorced, but they still share custody of their beloved dog "Baxter." Then one day Baxter becomes an internet/news sensation and everything changes. The Dog Park has a lot more twists and story plots to it than I expected.

Everything from a secret from Jess's past, her ex's (Sebastian) secret profession, and her new boyfriend's real agenda. This book will hold your attention and is fun to read. I was pleasantly surprised with The Dog Park.

I would recommend this book to you and you can purchase for yourself here:
