From Frenchie's Point of View

Bark! Sorry. Hi! My name is Frenchie. I’m a six and a half pound Yorkie Poo and I’m here to welcome you to “The Shores of Indian Lake” series by Catherine Lanigan. If you are returning to our small town, I’m glad to meet you, too. This is a new role for me, being a star, I mean. I’ve been a rescue dog, which wasn’t fun. I like to have a family. In fact, I have to have humans to love. Humans can be fun but they can also be pretty clueless about the essentials in life. Take Sophie Mattuchi and Jack Carter, for instance. I thought I’d never get these two together. 

Right from the start, when my interim owner, Jeremy Hawkins, who was a sad soul, really—a drug addict, but a kind person, gave me to Sophie, I loved her. She was pretty and cuddly and she let me sleep next to her the first night I went home with her. The first hour I was with her, she went out and bought me a car seat so I could sit in the passenger’s seat and look out the window to see the cars on Main Street and Maple Boulevard. Who does that for a stranger? 

As much as I love Sophie, she couldn’t take care of me. I like lots of attention. So, I barked and whined all day when she had to go save lives being a cardiac surgery nurse. Sophie lives in Mrs. Beabots’s apartment upstairs and I knew Mrs. Beabots would take action. So, Sophie pleaded with Jack Carter to take me. The minute I saw him, I knew he was the guy for Sophie, even if he was angry with her. See? This is the problem with humans. They get tangled up inside like I do when I’m leashed to a stake. I’m not going to run away. But humans, they’re constantly running from love. For some reason, love is scary to them. Not to dogs. Not to me. I only know to love. 

Anyway, neither one of them seemed to be able to get past the night of Jack’s accident when he thought Sophie made the wrong decision and his young intern, Aleah, died. That’s why I made a pest of myself and Jack had to take me to Katia and Austin’s wedding. He kept me up in the master bedroom, but when the storm broke out, I knew it was my chance to force Sophie and Jack together—alone.

I barked. I whined. I cried. I know, it was embarrassing, but I was running out of patience. When they dashed through the storm to get to me, well, you’ll have to read the book to see what happens. 


1. If you’ve read any of the previous books in THE SHORES OF INDIAN LAKE, you probably have met my friend, BEAU. He’s a really handsome Golden Retriever. He doesn’t bark as much as I do, but then he didn’t have to play cupid as much as me, either. Beau also can’t stand on his hind legs and dance around the room like I can either. 

2. I have other animal friends in Indian Lake. Rafe Barzonni has a great horse, Rowan, that Catherine introduced in FEAR OF FALLING. I like going out to the Barzonni farm with Jack and Sophie. Actually, I make them take me just about everywhere. Because I’m so little, I get to go running with them, too.

3. Jack was always a runner, but Sophie only took up the sport last year. She likes it now. She bought me a fluorescent green collar to match her lime green running shorts. I don’t run with her because she’s too fast and my legs are too short. She carries me in a sling around her chest. She’s a pretty good human that way.

4. Jack says he’s getting a small Bass fishing boat. I think I’d like fishing. Well, not fishing exactly, but being out on the lake on a pretty day. I’d like that. Sophie used to listen to her IPOD, but now that she has me and Jack, she talks to us. I sit in her lap so she can pet me. Told you I was a smart dog.

Her choice. His consequences.

Nurse Sophie Mattuchi has seen a lot of angry patients in the ER, but no one's ever rattled her like Jack Carter. He has no right to blame her for his friend's death. Sophie did everything she could. Didn't she? Yet his accusations sting, and that sets off all kinds of internal alarms. She's never cared this much about any man's opinion of her. But Jack is different. He stirs up feelings. Strong feelings. Guilt. Anger. Attraction. Curiosity. Sympathy. Sophie's definitely not interested in Jack, but even if she was, he'd never forgive her for the decision she made that night in the hospital. Would he?
