Book Description

21 Nov 2003
Karen Matheson, a child psychologist and head of Newfoundland Dog Rescue, is great with other people's kids and her huge, gentle canines. But with her own daughter, Katie single mum Karen feels like a failure. Growing up without a father has taken its toll on Katie, who, in her final year of high school is moody, resentful, and loath to confide in Karen. Katie's estranged dad was a marine, and the need to somehow connect with that unknown part of her prompts the girl to begin hanging out at a local gym, taking boxing lessons from ex-marine Steve Songer. To non-violent Karen, Steve has three strikes against him: the Corps, a boxing gym, and, of all dogs, a pit bull. Worse, she blames him when Katie secretly enlists in the Marines! Yet as the distance between mother and daughter grows, Karen turns to Steve for help. The emotional fire that ignites between them stuns her. She has long given most of her affection to the Newfies she rescues. But real love means finding the courage to take a leap of faith, face a long-kept secret, and perhaps risk everything to follow her heart...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story from Annie Smith 20 Jun 2004
By D. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
I just love the residents of Annie Smith's Hartlley, Ohio. After reading Home Again, I knew that there had to be more stories about these wonderful people. Sure enough, she wrote several books written under the name Annie Kimberlin. I was fortunate enough to find them, since many are out of print.
The animals in her stories are as complex and special as their humans. After reading these books, you will not be able to look at your pets the same.
I came to realize that it isn't the town, but the relationships among the characters that make this series special. Autumn Leaves is my favorite story so far. I hope that Annie Smith will continue to write about the characters of Hartley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice change from typical romances 18 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed this book. As a big animal lover, I enjoyed that the main character is involved in rescue, and a huge focus of the book is the dogs. I enjoyed that it was slightly different than a lot of the other romance novels I've read. It wasn't so focused on the play-by-play details in the passionate scenes, and it didn't have to include suspense to make the book enjoyable. I look forward to reading more by this author.
5.0 out of 5 stars Annie Kimberlin has grown into Annie Smith 9 Oct 2004
By M. Kuhn - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed Ann's first books, written under the name Annie Kimberlin, but this one represents a quantum leap forward in her growth as a writer. The characters are wonderfully drawn, the situations are believable, the ensemble of friends is one any woman will covet, Mel Gibson gets lots of mentions, and the dogs are big, furry and slobbery. What more could you ask?

Only one complaint--how could you do that to Brian Boru, Ann? You broke my heart.
