That Dog Won’t Hunt Review

Dearing Family Book 1, Southern Contemporary
    paper: $9.69                     
Meet the Dearings, a crazy, loving, boisterous family in small-town Mississippi. There's mom and dad, three daughters and their families, and the youngest—twenty-five-year-old Ben. Oh, and the family dog, a Yorkie who thinks she's royalty.
"This one's perfect," Ben says about his new fiancée, Christina, when he brings her home for a family reunion. Ben is just sure everyone will love Christina, and she'll fit right in.
He always did tend to wear rose-colored glasses.
Christina loves Ben but secretly fears their relationship will never work. They've only known each other ten weeks. She hasn't told him about her horrific past as an only child—the beatings, the neglect, and verbal abuse. Christina doesn't
know how to trust or be honest about her feelings. Being thrust into the middle
of a tight-knit family like the Dearings is sure to send her over the edge.
With poignancy and humor, That Dog Won't Hunt explores the complexities of
relationships and the inner strength needed to overcome a difficult childhood.
The Dearings are no perfect family, but they know how to love—if only Christina will accept it

That Dog Won’t Hunt is different from Brandilyn Collins other books but just as great. Being used to Brandilyn’s trademark Seatbelt Suspense® I wasn’t sure if I would like her newest book  as much as do all of her other books I’ve read. Boy was I wrong. I fell instantly in love with the loud, loving Dearing family that seemed so much like my own. I loved That Dog Won’t Hunt and can’t wait for the next book in the Dearing Family series. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that leave you with a good taste in your mouth.
