Book Review: A Fun (straight) Romance: Must Love Weiners

   Although we've watched a lot of romantic (straight) movies and TV shows, as a gay guy, I (Rob) have never read a straight romance novel... until now.  My mother in law found a book that involves Dachshunds (since we're Dachshund and Weimaraner dads) called "Must Love Wieners" by Casey Griffin and gave it to us to enjoy. Disclaimer: She didn't read it but she should have!  It was a cute "girl meets boy" story with 2 Dachshunds in the middle of it.
   The story had some mystery to it, like finding out who the person or persons were that were making things tough for the main character, a 26 year old Veterinarian student named Piper. Piper and her Dachshund, Colin went everywhere together. She drove a cab, did singing telegrams and volunteered at a dog rescue.
  The 20-something love interest, Aiden was also a great character.  I must confess, that if straight women go through continually doubting straight men, and questioning them when they do nice things, that's quite a challenge to have a good relationship.
  Of course as a gay married man, it made me breathe a sigh of relief. LOL.
Seriously, this book was fun, the characters were fun and I enjoyed it. ..as I do with most books that involve Dachshunds or Weimaraners!  A very cute love story.

ABOUT THE BOOK FROM AMAZON:
First in a wickedly funny new series brimming with mystery and romance!
Piper Summers works like a dog juggling three jobs to put herself through veterinary school―driving taxis, delivering pizzas, and singing telegrams. Thankfully, Piper has her devoted dachshund Colin to help her keep things in line. That is, until she gets fired...and someone throws her a bone that is too good to resist.
Aiden Caldwell is an Armani ad come to life―a billionaire CEO who’s just adopted a dachshund from the rescue center where Piper volunteers. He’s hot on Piper’s tail to be his personal dog walker...but he may be after more than a walker for his wiener. The gorgeous, spirited Piper is everything he’s ever wanted from a woman―and more. But can Piper ever love, and trust, a man who has never learned to open his heart―or has she bitten off more than she can chew?
Must Love Wieners is the first book in Casey Griffin's Rescue Dog Romance series!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
