5 of 5 Ian and Colby
Good Guys Love Dogs is such a heart warming story right from the beginning until the end. It is about two people searching for that one thing that is missing in their life. For one it is simple he put work before anything and everything else. For one she has secrets and when they are exposed she will have to live with the consequences. For me I loved this book because it showed that through it all love has a place and love can heal all wounds.

Colby Williams is a single mother of a teenage daughter. Her daughter and her come to heads when her daughter finds out she has been keeping a secret about her father.

When Ian and Colby come together in this story it felt like I was right there watching a real life scene. This book is a great Saturday or Sunday read. Sit by the fireplace and read because this one will melt your heart!
RITA Award-winning author Inglath Cooper has written 9 published novels and 2 novellas. She fell in love with books as soon as she learned how to read. “When I was a little girl, we had a black-and-white TV with rabbit ears. Needless to say, it didn’t pick up a lot! I spent a good deal of time with my nose in a book. I think I read most of the books in my elementary school library.”
That love for books translated into a natural love for writing and a desire to create stories that other readers could get lost in, just as she had gotten lost in her favorite books. Her stories focus on the dynamics of relationships, those between a man and a woman, mother and daughter, sisters, friends. They most often take place in small Virginia towns very much like the one where she grew up and are peopled with characters who reflect those values and traditions.
“There’s something about small-town life that’s just part of who I am. I’ve had the desire to live in other places, wondered what it would be like to be a true Manhattanite, but the thing I know I would miss is the familiarity of faces everywhere I go. There’s a lot to be said for going in the grocery store and seeing ten people you know!”
Her passion for writing has most recently translated into songwriting which she considers a natural extension of her love of storytelling.
