Hello Love by Karen McQuestion: Dan was going through the motions, living his life, or so he believed anyway. As long as he didn’t think everything was okay. His daughter was alright, amazingly a senior in high school with a boyfriend, a job and doing well. His dog was great and the best friend he could have at a time like this. He just couldn’t think, still a year later he couldn’t allow himself to think, he missed her too much.
Andrea is finally starting to see herself again. Maybe not grateful her marriage was over but she was definitely starting to see the benefits of not being with Marco any more. That didn’t mean she wasn’t a bit lonely though, so when she rescues a dog she knows she’s found someone to help her find the rest of herself.
This is a story about missed opportunities and so many almost moments that it’s funny. Yes the story deals with the widowing of a young man, a stolen dog, abuse and some other unhappy things but you will find yourself laughing or shaking your head in disbelief at some of the almost moments.
While well written the story suspends belief in reality or persuades you to think that things happen in there own time certainly not the times that we plan. This is a chuckle worthy sweet kind of happy ending that makes you want to awwwwww at the end.
