EarnestBook - 2016
Earnest. It's the perfect name for a sweet, eager-to-please yellow Labrador retriever. Anna and her boyfriend Jeff fall for him the minute they see those guileless eyes gazing up from behind his gate at Seattle's Second Chance Shelter ... During the day, Earnest keeps Anna company in her flower shop, located in a historic gingerbread Victorian on the island's main street. Anna hopes to buy and restore the house, once owned by her beloved grandmother. But when that dream is threatened by Jeff's actions, Anna's trust is shattered. For so long, the house has encompassed all her ideals of security, home, and family. Yet Earnest's devotion to his two people, and theirs to him, make it impossible for them to walk away from each other. And when a crisis hits, it's Earnest, honest, stubborn, and uncannily wise, who will help Anna reconcile her past and embrace what the future can bring.
