Mini-Review: Cold Nose, Warm Heart (Book #1: Fur Haven Dog Park Series) by Mara Wells



All Caleb Donovan has to do to redeem his family name is take a rundown Miami Beach apartment building and turn it into luxury condos. Easy, right? 

Unfortunately, that would also turn the local dog park into a parking lot and the neighbors aren’t having it. Caleb is faced with outright revolt, led by smart, beautiful building manager Riley Carson and her poodle, LouLou. 

For Caleb, this project should have been a slam dunk. But even more challenging than the neighborhood resistance is the mutual attraction between him and Riley. It would be so much easier just to stay enemies. 

Can Riley and her canine sidekick convince Caleb that what’s best for business isn’t always best for the heart?

The Bottom Line: This is one of those feel good reads that make for a quick read when you aren’t quite ready to dive into the bigger, more serious books on your list.  In truth, this book is as predictable as they come, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the ride and the read.  I’m always going to be a fan of books that put the animals front and center and that is certainly the case here.  For the most part, this is a very light and somewhat superficial read, but it does have its merits.  It’s a solid enemies to lovers read, with a few feisty little old ladies thrown in for good measure, a lot of drama, and plenty of fur.  While I can’t in good conscious tell you to move this one to the top of your TBR list, I can tell you to hang on to this one for the day, which inevitably comes, when you need something light and fun that you don’t have to think a whole lot about.  Should I happen upon the next book in the series, I may pick it up, but I don’t think I’m going to go hunting for book two.
