In Dog We Trust by Beth Kendrick

Jocelyn is jogging when she sees a couple of dogs examining each other in the middle of the road.  Then she hears a sports car approaching and she runs a little faster.  She stops disaster from happening by grabbing them and moving them from the road right before the sports car gets there.  The lab's owner thanks her.  The man driving the car apologizes to her.  She makes her escape and takes the mutt who caused all the problems home with her.

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

The man owning the labs offers her a job taking care of his dogs.  The sports car driver asks her out.  Her life takes a turn for the good.  Everything is fine for a while.  Then her employer dies and makes her guardian of his dogs and gives them the house and his money.  That's almost overwhelming.  The man she's been dating and was thinking of marrying (even though he hadn't asked) tells her he thinks they need to back off and give each some space.  She knows that means goodbye.

If that isn't bad enough, Mr. Boat Shoes she met at her employer's house turns out to be his son.  He sues her over the house.  And the lady who showed the dogs sues her saying she should have been appointed as guardian.  Her life is no longer the same.  She can use the estate money to fight the cases, but will she win?

I enjoyed the characters, the dogs, and the romance all three in this one.  It was well worth the read.
