“Talisman, a pampered show dog with attitude, has a play date with her sister Maddie, who is a hardcore cowdog. Through an unfortunate mix-up, the two dogs are switched and Talisman has to cowdog-up for the day. It’s an Australian Shepherd Freaky Friday!”
|The novella I’m reviewing this week is a spin-off of a very famous canine character from the Red Hot series. (you may remember a previous review that I gave for Red Hot Property, an absolute must have chick lit book and perfect for the beach!)After Red Hot Property, I was really looking forward to reading Tali’s very own novella. While I found it quite fun to read a story from an animal’s perspective I was mostly curious as to how author Devin O’Branagan was going to twist this tail (pun intended) to make it into something big enough to be put into print. I wasn’t disappointed. She has a true gift for writing entertainingly touching stories and this one was no exception. Tali is a dog of great love, great heart, and a mild dislike of mud. I think any fur-loving human, young or old, will enjoy em-bark-ing on this journey. 😉
The pace was fluent and the length was just right, neither too long nor too short, and as an added bonus some of the proceeds will be donated to http://www.aussierescue.org . I really respect authors who support a cause and promote kindness to all living things.
This link will take you to Devin’s site where you can read a full excerpt from the novella.

Stayed tuned for next week when I’ll be posting a review of the second book in the Red Hot series, Red Hot Liberty!
