Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Claire Cook’s characters aren’t rich or glamorous—they’re physically imperfect, emotionally insecure, and deeply familiar. Must Love Dogs is a sweet, funny novel about first dates and second chances.” Tom Perrotta, New York Times bestselling author
“Readers will hope that Claire Cook will be telling breezy summer stories from the South Shore of Massachusetts for seasons to come.” Washington Post
“A laugh-out-loud novel…a light and lively read for anyone who has tried to reenter the dating scene—or tried to ‘fix up’ somebody else.” Boston Herald
“Cook dishes up plenty of charm.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Funny and pitch-perfect.” Chicago Tribune
“Heroine Sarah Hurlihy…will appeal to many readers, single or attached.” USA Today
“A tart slice-of-the-single-life worth reading…Breezy first-person narration makes this a fast paced, humorous diversion.” Publishers Weekly
“Carrington MacDuffie is an ideal reader, who has a superb sense of timing that will make most listeners laugh…Must Love Dogs is the perfect book for people who want a reason to smile.” AudioFile 
“It’s raining men, family, humor, and tragicomic angst in Cook’s latest novel for older fans of Bridget Jones.” Booklist
“This utterly charming second novel by Cook is a fun read, perfect for whiling away an afternoon on the beach…The laughs [keep] going all the way to the not-quite-storybook-perfect ending.” Library Journal
