About the book:

Fetching Sweetness (Harvest House, July 2016)

Standing between Stephanie and her dream is one hundred pounds of lovable trouble.
It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author's valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.

But Agnes's canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.

When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings---a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog . . . thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.

Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it's a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.

About the author:

Dana Mentink
lives in California, where the weather is golden and the cheese is divine. Dana is an American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year finalist for romantic suspense and an award winner in the Pacific Northwest Writers Literary Contest. Her suspense novel, Betrayal in the Badlands, earned a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award. Besides writing, she busies herself teaching third and fourth grade. Mostly, she loves to be home with her husband, two daughters, a dog with social anxiety problems, a chubby box turtle, and a feisty parakeet.

My Review:
"Fetching Sweetness" is such a sweet and fun read, and at the same time full of heart.  Stephanie is on a mission to obtain a manuscript that fans have been waiting for, for over a decade.  However, they are going to be waiting a bit more as well as Stephanie waiting for her promotion as work as the author's dog takes off and she makes a deal with Stephanie, no manuscript until she finds and returns her dog.  When Stephanie stumbles onto a campground and finds herself accepting help from a man she doesn't know, she finds herself at the beginning of an adventure.  Rhett is on a journey to find some healing from his past and helping this woman and a dog was not part of the plan, but he finds himself offering to help and hoping Stephanie will help him with his own journey. 
I loved this book and found myself laughing out loud at times and at other times wanting to reach out and hug Stephanie and Rhett as bits and pieces of their pasts are shared.  The characters have enough eccentricities to make them so fascinating, but also "normal" enough that they are easy to empathize with.  I cannot wait to read what Dana writes next!
