Food for Life CEO Dr. Dinah Taylor notices the boy and his dog outside of Extraburger, but ignores him the first time she sees him.  When she sees him again outside Extraburger during a cold mist, she buys him a sandwich.  A polite Jonah thanks her before he and Downmutt walk to school.

Upset Jonah calls Dinah late at night begging her to help injured Downmutt.  Dinah drops everything to take the dog to  emergency veterinarian Dr. Garret Miller.  The vet and the youthful pet owner are instant buddies, but Garret seems to find the CEO repugnant and she reciprocates his dislike.  However, as health crises impact love ones and Dinah’s diabetes breakthrough faces political pressure fostered by big Pharma, the two adults, already adoring their young matchmaker, fall in love.

This is a fantastic inspirational romance as readers will be hooked early on by the little boy and his dog standing in the rain.  Garret and Dinah are flawed individuals and Jonah has issues; while the changing relationships make for a wonderful contemporary drama.
