Fetching Sweetness: Love Unleashed Book 2 By Dana Mentink

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:

Standing Between Stephanie and Her Dream
Is One Hundred Pounds of Lovable Trouble

It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author's valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.

But Agnes's canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.

When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog...thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.

Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it's a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.

My Thoughts:

Fetching Sweetness is the second book in Dana Mentink's Love Unleashed and it is so great! I had the pleasure of reading the first book in the series and fell in love.  As a fan of Christian Fiction and of course animals this book and series really caught my eye. Dana Mentink writes with authority on dogs, running business, the United States especially California, Washington State, and the Pacific Northwest, medical issues, road trips, publishing, and being a writer. I loved this book. I could not put it down once I started it. I found myself feeling like I was right there on this journey the characters all took. I enjoyed the characters but my favorite is Sweetness the dog. Sweetness is a big dog who loves adventure and really makes Stephanie and Rhett's lives much more interesting and bring out sides of them they really didn't know they had. Sweetness is a kind dog that really senses others needs and does what he can to take care over them, from people to other animals. I found Sweetness added such comic relief to this story. I really did find myself laughing out loud at the shenanigans of Sweetness. I really found myself relating to the journey of faith both Stephanie and Rhett were taking on their own and together. Gave me a lot to think about. From start to finish this book definitely kept me guessing and I loved the progression of this story. These books can be read as stand alone books even though they are a series. I HIGHLY recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction and/or animal stories, you will NOT be disappointed! I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, it is on my wish list. I give this book 5 STARS.

A recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest can only be found in Fetching Sweetness by Dana Mentink. It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Retrieve a reclusive author's valuable new manuscript and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent. But when the author's canine companion, Sweetness, makes a break for it and Stephanie has to track Sweetness down, she meets Rhett Hastings. They’re in for a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.
