Giveaway - Dog Days - Elsa Watson

It's time to think about stocking your beach bag for the summer. And I can help you with that! I have a copy of Dog Days by Elsa Watson up for grabs.

What's it about? From the publisher Tor Books:

"Struggling café owner Jessica Sheldon volunteered to be the chairperson of Woofinstock, Madrona’s annual dog festival, to overcome her reputation as “number one dog hater” in her dog crazy town. Determined to prove her dog-loving credentials, Jessica rescues Zoe, a stray white German shepherd—and in the process the two are struck by lightening.

Jessica wakes to discover paws where her feet should be, and watches in horror as her body staggers around the town square…Zoe and Jessica have switched bodies. Learning to live as a dog is difficult enough, but Jessica’s real worry is saving her café from financial ruin. To complicate matters, she’s falling hard for Max, the town veterinarian.

It’s clear that Zoe is thrilled to live life on “human terms,” but she’s also anxious to use her new skills to find her missing family—who may not want her back. And Jessica needs to confront a complicated figure from her past before she can move on with her new life. Jessica and Zoe will need to learn from each other to set things right, and possibly find love and acceptance in the bargain."

Check out the book trailer here!

From 1996 to 1998, Elsa Watson served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, where she began writing novels, all in longhand. She now lives in Washington State with her husband, cat, and two dogs. Her short work has appeared in the Writers Journal, Snowy Egret, and Renaissance Magazine. Elsa is proud to live by the motto: any day on which you pet a dog is a good day. You can find Elsa on Facebook and on Twitter.

I love books with dogs and this one sounds very interesting. It sounds like a fresh take on the Shaggy DA. Would love to add this to my summer read pile.

I love that the dog turned a dog hater into a dog lover. This is like my mother, she never wanted dogs or cats around the house. When we had to move and the apartment say they would charge $100 a month for the cats and we couldn't afford that, we had to beg her to keep them. She grew to love them so much. It was amazing.

Really want to read this book!!!
