Why you must read Jackie Bouchard’s Rescue Me, Maybe
“Rescue Me, Maybe” is what I call a “love story… for dog lovers.”
It follows Jane Bailey, who has just lost both her husband and her dog to cancer. But, no one knows that she’s sadder about the dog. Jane’s husband had dragged her to Philadelphia, but now that he’s gone, she’s free to move back to her beloved hometown of laid-back, beach-y San Diego. At least… she will be after she helps out temporarily at her uncle’s small-town Arizona B&B. As an introvert, Jane is not excited about working at the B&B. En route to her new role as breakfast chef, she finds a stray. Heartbroken from the loss of her dog, she’s determined not to let this mutt worm its way into her affections. She’s also determined to have next-to-no interaction with the B&B’s irritating guests, and the even more annoying handyman who lives next door. Will Jane be able to keep her sanity—and her secret that she’s not really a grieving widow—while trying to get back to the place she thinks is home?

I like to read, watch sports, walk my dog, hang out with my hubs and have him make me cocktails. I especially enjoy these pomegranate margaritas he’s been making lately.
