My Review:

I've read and reviewed this book before
But it was such a fun read, I've read it once more!
It is a laugh out loud story that's full of fun
With a spirit guide dog, Prozac, helping get things done!

Meredith's fiancé was murdered and she was there
Now she's lost her joie de vivre and doesn't care.
When her sister leave a Yorkshire Terrier with her for a while
She never expected it would help her once again to smile.

The terrier, Prozac, tells the story from his point of view,
As he encourages Meredith to work her grief through.
Meredith has been solitary, determinedly staying alone
But Prozac's complex social life will make her moan!

Get ready for mischief, mayhem and fun
As Meredith endeavours to ensure Prozac visits are done.
Meeting new people and visiting new places
Meredith gets to know some new faces.

A heartwarming story exploring relationships, too,
Bringing along an extra smile or two!
Along with great characters with whom it is easy to relate,
There's lots of laughter, twist and the sure hand of fate.

A page turner read that takes the reader there, too,
In an adventure with new beginnings and relationships to view.
Thank you to Kindle Unlimited for my copy of this brilliant book
I hope my honest review encourages you to give it another look!

Synopsis:

Ever since the death of her fiancé, Meredith Mancuso has shrunk from the world. Even with her successful writing career, she’s not motivated to work. When her sister, Monica, begs for a favor, Meredith wants nothing more than to say no. But she’s ultimately roped into pet-sitting an orphaned Yorkshire terrier named Prozac.

Blessed with spiritual wisdom and a high IQ, Prozac is an active pet therapy dog. To heal broken-hearted Meredith, he rallies his fan club at Evergreen Gardens, an independent living facility, where he visits each week.

Prozac and the community of resilient older folks challenged by losses of their own propel Meredith, often against her will, back into the land of the living. Meredith learns that most people carry some sort of burden, but it’s still possible to find meaning, purpose, and joy–and sometimes, even love–along the way.
