Product description

About the Author

Jane McBride was born in Rochester, NY and grew up in a small town called Medina in Western New York in an old farm house. The house, barn and yard allowed for a constant flow and supply of all kinds of different animals who were cherished and loved to the elderly ends of their long lives. She joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1986 and served a mission to Oregon from 1990-91. She met her husband during that time and they now live in Taylorsville, UT with their two little boys and a whole bunch of animals. A Little Hair of the Dog is her first novel.

Format: Paperback
This is a very sweet, good-humored book. It has some genuinely funny slap-stick moments involving Ann and Henry and Henry and a variety of unsuspecting American Footballers. It Also has some really engaging characters - Ann herself comes across as a really likable person, as does the slightly camp Bobby and even the 'evil' Diesel. It also has a really hunky hero - Kyle - who in the best traditions of romantic leads has a troubled back-story and is emotionally scarred. Some of the characters, however, fall into parody. Vera, the original owner of Henry, who abandoned him with her mother while she went in search of enlightenment, is presented as a ridiculous fool. Prey to charlatans and drug-dealers - this could be viewed as a veiled criticism of New Age/alternative spirituality.

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!

I actually really enjoyed this book. I didn't think I would because of the religious side of it, but once I got started I enjoyed the relaxed pace. It had an old fashioned comfortable feel, like an old pair of slippers and I found myself happily lost in its pages.

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 just finished ready A Little Hair of the Dog and I can honestly say that it has made me laugh out loud so many times.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 20 Jan. 2013
By Dee Feltman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a great book. I loved the characters and laughed til I cried! I would definately recommend this & Jane McBride's second book, Reigning Cats and Dogs (of the Ann & Henry novels). Although I'm not a mormon and do not share all the views & ways of the mormons, I was not put off by the indepth information about the mormon faith, it was so obviously a big part of who Ann is in the story. Jane writes a clean story, no cursing & no explicit love scenes, she has true talent and has thoroughly managed to include sexual tension and deep feelings without them. All of the characters are well rounded and likeable. This is a "can't put this book down" kind of book. I look forward to reading more by Jane McBride.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Hair of the Dog 26 April 2013
By Cheryl Bloom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jane McBride is an Amazing Author. The tale of Ann Bixby was very well thought out and the adventure in the book was fun to read. You never knew what Ann, friends and family were going to go through next. I liked the fact that Jane talked about Mormonism. Spiritual beliefs are almost non-existent in our world. I liked how Jane talked about Ann's boyfriend's road to becoming a Mormon. It was interesting how he first reacted when he met the two Mormon's "spraying them with a hose"-too cute. Jane has such a creative mind and she knows how to make reading interesting. There was never a boring part in the book. There were trails, illness and happiness in the book. Jane was able to hit every topic with an interesting turn. I loved reading the book. I have a hard time sitting to read but, again Jane's book was so interesting that I did not want to put it down.

Great Job Jane!

5.0 out of 5 stars Layers 28 Feb. 2014
By Marie L. Molloy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful and enlightening series. When I started I was not sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised! It's a love story between a woman and her new found dog plus a hunk of a man, light hearted comedy with a bit of mystery thrown in and I learned about a faith I had no understanding of! Also enjoyed the quirky characters and the friendship between the main character and her best friend. I look forward to the continuing journey of Ann, Henry and Kyle! It proves the point, when one door closes another opens!

I enjoyed the dog!! Interesting to learn about the Mormon religion without feeling like I was being preached at. The speech patterns are not distracting,reminded me of being in areas influenced by Canadian or Swedish (eh!) influences.

By jo alston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What delightful series with a heroine who is klutzy, faints and has a joy of life and God that inspires you to be a better person. I enjoyed this romance and appreciated the many characters, even if I did not find them wholly believable, that added texture to the story. A gentle, sweet, read.
