"Jack of Hearts", a new book where the hero is a Jack Russell Terrier, has been released as an eBook. It was written by my friend, Robin Gainey, and I believe you might be interested in making this a summer read. The novel is a dog's point of view of infidelity. The story is about Shimoni, a well-to-do canine who discovers his master has strayed. Determined not to lose half of everything in a messy divorce, Shimoni does his best to get his people to reconcile. The book is set in Rome and the Tuscan countryside. My painting of the real Shimoni sports the cover!
Some pre-publication reviews: A wonderful, funny and touching novel. Shimoni is not simply a dog, he is our guide; he is our friend. Stay by his side, stay with his heart, and he will take you places you havent been, and show you things you havent seen: after reading Jack Of Hearts you will understand the true depths of love and devotion. Garth Stein, "The Art Of Racing In The Rain"
This novel has freshness, originality and a huge heart of gold. Shimoni is one of the most unforgettable narrators I've ever read, and does he have a story to tell! I loved everything about this book. Susan Wiggs, NY Times Best-Selling Romance Novelist, "Just Breathe"
