Taking The Lead: Adventures of a Hollywood Dog Walker by Di Jones is the novel of every dog lovers dream, especially people like me who love dogs and just can’t have them. This novel is an absolute gem. What should I talk about first? The dogs, or the characters, or the chapter names? Oh, the chapter names. Di Jones must be the master of pun and irony. I am officially in love with the way she writes and the only other person I have said this about is J.K Rowling!
The story is about Tessa, a girl with dreams of making it big in Hollywood. But things are not that easy. Times get tough and she is desperate to make ends meet. Her life takes a turn for the better when she gets a job as a dog walker. She finally has a chance to make something out of her life and dreams, and if she plays her cards right, she might even get a hunky man out of it.
Let me start with the dogs; they are full of character. Twinkletoes is awesome. That Great Dane is a dream pet. And all the other dogs mixed with Twinkletoes gives you the right kind of humor and mischief that just makes your heart melt and have you grinning like a fool. I loved, loved, and loved reading this novel and I cannot wait for more from Tessa and her dream of making it big in the Hollywood. I hope I don’t have to wait long for a sequel.
