One of the main themes of this book is the emotional healing and spiritual awakening of Kyle to the LDS/Mormon faith through his relationship with Ann. This is explored in some detail as is the Missionary work of the LDS church, along with baptismal and marriage customs at one point Kyle gives 'testimony' of his new-found faith when he agrees to baptism. For some people this might be a bit intense and a bit of a turn-off, however I am not a religious person and I was able to read it with interest - and after-all this book is categorised as 'Mormon Fiction' so readers should not be surprised that it has a strongly Mormon flavor.
In relation to the sub-plot relating to the drug dealers - this is not a main theme of the novel, the book is definitely not a crime thriller - yes its all part of the story, the drama, but it is not the main feature so don't be disappointed if Jessica Fletcher doesn't appear (although admittedly Aunt Gert and her faithful side-kick do do their best to fill in her!)
Overall, this was a very enjoyable read - sort of Chick-Lit with a Mormon slant. It was funny, good-natured, and oddly a very uplifting novel (even for a dyed in the wool heathen like me!) which just goes to show you really don't have to be a Mormon to enjoy it!
I actually found the religious Mormon side of it quite interesting, as although it was part of the book it was not 'in your face' so to speak. It is interesting learning about other's beliefs and what makes the world go round.
I enjoyed the dialogue and could imagine each character saying it, in there local way. I am also a sucker for anything with animals in it, although I am slightly more of a cat person. Overall though it was a fun, relaxing read.
I don't want to give anything away because then you might not laugh as hard if you know what is coming but if you like comedy, huge dogs and romance, then this is for you! You will wish that you had a Henry of your very own (the male lead is, in actual fact, a dog) and a friend as hilarious as Ann in real life.
Seriously - Buy. This. Book... NOW! The price is a real bargain for such a funny, witty book. You won't realise that you're not reading a 'mainstream' author's words, Jane is one talented lady and you will definitely not regret your purchase... In fact I know that you'll end up buying the whole collection (like me!). I can't wait to get started on the rest of the series.
