What I’m Reading Fridays with @meganslayer ~ Please Don’t Feed the Mayor by Sue Pethick #reading #iamreading

I realize I’ve been derelict in posting what I’ve read for the past couple weeks. It’s been a little tough around here, so I’m trying to get back on track. Here we go!

I’ve been reading a lot of animal books and mystery ones, so when I saw this one… I mean, you’re not supposed to feed the mayor who is that darn cute. I had to read it. I’m glad I did. This author is new to me and the writing style is original. The one thing that was a little off putting about the writing was the author’s tendency to have a character do an action, then the next line was the character speaking. It sometimes made following along as to who was talking a bit difficult. I also wasn’t sure about the heroine for a while. She could be very…she has her ways and wants things her way, but she’s sweet about it. I had a hard time warming up to her.

Still, it’s a cute book and a quick read, so if you’re looking for something for the beach or something for a lazy weekend, then this might be for you.

When the lumber mill closes, laying off most everyone in Fossett, Oregon, Melanie MacDonald plans to revitalize her beloved but beleaguered homestead by running her border collie Shep in Fossett’s mayoral race . . .

 Shep wins by a landslide.  

A lover of democracy and dog treats, Shep is rapidly earning the goodwill of Fossett’s citizens. Tourists are streaming in and everyone wants to glad-paw the new mayor. Suddenly Melanie and Shep are media darlings, with requests for interviews, game shows, and personal appearances through the roof. But there’s trouble in paradise. Determined to win back his former wife, Bryce MacDonald discovers a rival in tabloid reporter Chad Cameron, who’s in Fossett to dig up dirt on Melanie and Shep. He finds a willing co-conspirator in the malcontent who lost the election. Hounded by the press and desperate to head off a potential dog-napping, Melanie unwittingly puts herself in danger. Shep comes to the rescue, proving his mettle to save his faithful human at the risk of his own life . . . and new political career.
