A new book by Michele Gorman is always something to look forward to – Love is a Four-Legged Word will be published on 13th October so the “Look Inside” sample isn’t available on Amazon yet, but with thanks to Michele and publishers Notting Hill Press I’m delighted to be able to offer you (along with a few other bloggers) a sneak peek before anyone else.
Shall we have a look at the blurb first?
Best friends Scarlett and Shannon spend their days tangled up in dog leads and covered in fur, running their dog business together. Scarlett’s intensive training course, Ruff Love, fixes owners as much as their pets, while Shannon spends her days walking spoiled pooches.
They share more than their business though: they also share Scarlett’s husband, Rufus, who’s been Shannon’s best friend since childhood. It’s a cosy setup. Unless one of them has a secret…
When Scarlett and Rufus’s baby plans are decimated by a surprise turn of events, their marriage hits the rocks and they both turn to Shannon. All three relationships are pushed to breaking point, but when loyalties become divided, how do you decide who’s most important?
Yes, I rather like the look of that! If you do too, here are the links to get the first five chapters of Love is a Four-Legged Word.

“In her head she was the love child of Doctor Doolittle and Sigmund freud, a fairy dogmother who transformed pet owners’ lives across Greater London. In reality she spent a lot of time being drooled over in the mud.”
During the pre-order period (through to October 12th) the book’s price has been reduced to 99c on Amazon.com/99p on Amazon.co.uk. On October 13th, publication day, the price will go back up to normal ($5.99/£2.49).
“Barkley glued his eyes to the aluminium foil as she unwrapped it. Dog treats? Leftover sandwich? Was it even edible? It didn’t matter – could he get it into his mouth? Chicken! It’s chicken! Everybody, the lady’s got chicken! He looked from Charlie to Hiccup. Hiccup wasn’t as impressed with the big reveal.”
Michele writes books with heart and humour, full of best friends, girl power and, of course, love and romance. Call them beach books or summer reads, chick lit or romcom… readers and reviewers call them “feel good”, “relatable” and “thought-provoking”.
She is both a Sunday Times and a USA Today bestselling author, raised in the US and living in London. She is very fond of naps, ice cream and Richard Curtis films but objects to spiders and the word “portion”.
