Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "From the author of Once Upon a Wine, a new novel set in the charming seashore town of Black Dog Bay, Delaware. When Jocelyn Hilliard finds herself named legal guardian for the late Mr. Allardyce's pack of prized Labrador retriever show dogs, her world is flipped upside down. She's spent her entire life in Black Dog Bay, Delaware, but never expected to be living the pampered life of a seasonal resident in an oceanside mansion with a generous stipend. But her new role isn't without its challenges: the dogs (although cute) are difficult to manage, her boyfriend leaves her, and suddenly she's contending with her late benefactor's estranged son, Liam, who thinks he's entitled to the inheritance that was left to the dogs. But Jocelyn has worked too hard, and her mother has sacrificed too much, for her to back down without a fight. She uncovers Mr. Allardyce's secrets, connects with her mother on new levels, and learns more about her own father's legacy while trying to find common ground with Liam. As Jocelyn fights to keep her new fur-family together, she is faced with a new rival who threatens to take everything"-- Provided by publisher.
"When everything has gone to the dogs... When Jocelyn Hilliard is named legal guardian for the late Mr. Allardyce's pack of pedigreed Labrador retrievers, her world is flipped upside down. She's spent her entire life toiling in the tourism industry in Black Dog Bay and never expected to be living the pampered life of a seasonal resident in an ocean side mansion, complete with a generous stipend. But her new role isn't without its challenges: the dogs (although lovable) are more high maintenance than any Hollywood diva, the man she wants to marry breaks her heart, and she's confronted at every turn by her late benefactor's estranged son, Liam, who thinks he's entitled to the inheritance left to the dogs. Jocelyn has worked too hard to back down without a fight, and she's determined to keep her new fur family together. As she strives to uphold the "Best in Show" standards her pack requires, Jocelyn finds love, family and forgiveness in the most unexpected places"-- Provided by publisher.

    Everything is going to the dogs, literally, in this latest charmer from Kendrick (Once Upon a Wine, 2016). Black Dog Bay resident Jocelyn Hillier doesn't normally associate with the wealthy owners of the decadent beach houses that dot the bay, unless it's to wash their linens. But then Jocelyn becomes a dog walker for the wealthy Mr. Allardyce, and she is soon embroiled in more than just dirty laundry. When Mr. Allardyce passes away unexpectedly, he leaves the majority of his wealth to his three show dogs, Carmen, Curtis, and Hester. Mr. Allardyce's will appoints Jocelyn to be the dogs' guardian, catapulting her to the wealthy echelon of society. But more money means more problems for Jocelyn when people from Mr. Allardyce's past and present contest the legality of her guardianship. Written with wit and filled with characters brimming with sass, In Dog We Trust is a novel of friendship, family, and cute dogs that can be enjoyed by even the most canine-averse readers.
