“Sit Stay Love” is the perfect spring or summer read, especially when one is in the mood for something light-hearted and encouraging. With a somewhat grouchy major league baseball pitcher and quirky school teacher who is reduced to dog sitting, and of course, Tippy, the real star of this book, the reader is treated to several laugh-out-loud scenes and some pretty sweet romantic ones as well.
Those who are frequent readers of romance will quickly guess that totally mismatched Cal and Gina will end up together – it’s a given in these novels – but what fun it was to see them overcome the hurdles on their way to romance. As Tippy dug her way into everyone’s hearts, she managed to help heal a few of those same hearts along the way. I loved the redemptive message of this story where even one of the bad guys turns out to just need a bit of Tippy’s touch to turn himself around.
As a dog lover, I thoroughly enjoyed this story that featured Tippy in a major role. Although they took a back seat to her, the other characters were well-rounded and quite likeable. “Sit Stay Love” is a charming and engaging story that should be appropriate for almost any age.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Take one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you’re ready for a lesson in love . . . Tippy style.
Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother’s elderly dog, Tippy, he’s quick to call on a pet-sitting service.
Gina isn’t thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can’t abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.
As Gina travels through Cal’s world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too…
Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.
