Welcome to the Official Harlequin Blog Book Tour for A Dog Named Boo by Lisa J. Edwards.

Most pet owners have had their hearts stolen by a potential pet that just seems to have the cards stacked against him or her. How many have taken that little dog or cat changing their life by giving them a wonderful home and boundless love? I'm sure quite a few of us have done that at least once in our lifetime. I know I have. And how many of us have had our lives changed in the process?

This is the story of Boo, abandoned with his siblings, the runt of his litter and the dunce of his obedience class. It is also the story of Lisa, a certified professional dog trainer, publishing professional, wife and pet parent to 2 cats and 2 dogs who added Boo to the family, gave him a shot at life and a chance to shine as a therapy dog and the bond between them that helped Lisa overcome the obstacles in her life, restore faith in herself and take the final step toward the fulfillment of a dream.

Advance praise for A DOG NAMED BOO
"The best animal stories are about relationships, and nothing is better than a story like A Dog Named Boo….
Lisa and Boo's joy at helping others is inspiring; but it's their belief in each other, even when no one else believed, that touched my heart."
Bret Witter, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Dewey   and Until Tuesday

One of Publishers Weekly Top 10 Memoirs of 2012!
“A fascinating look at what service dogs can accomplish…. Readers interested in dogs and service animals will enjoy this story of resilience.”

“As a bonus, even those who don’t have dogs will come away with an understanding of positive training methods, therapy dog work,
and the countless benefits of canine companionship.”  — CJ Puotinen, author of The Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care, cofounder of the
Hudson Valley Visiting Pet Program

Boo is a wonderful story for any animal lover, pet parent, dedicated rescuer or person interested in partnering with their pet as a therapy team. An easy read that draws you in right from the start, filled with warmth and heart, Boo shows how loving, supporting and believing in oneself and others can bring about extraordinary results. A perfect book to curl up with as the evenings turn chilly and autumn is in the air.  Grab a mug of warm cider and read the story of a dog named Boo and his relationship with Lisa as it started twelve Halloweens ago...
