Get ready to laugh out loud with this hilarious romantic comedy featuring:
A grumpy firefighter who thinks his way is the only way
A bubbly cupcake vendor who thinks her pup can do no wrong
Adorable Dalmatians who swap places—and the chaos that ensues
An opposites-attract romance that'll warm your heart
Violet March and Sam Nash are as different as night and day and have been enemies ever since Violet accused Sam of dognapping her beloved Dalmatian. Sam knows that would never happen—his well-trained fire safety demonstration dog never steps out of line, whereas Violet's problematic pooch has never met a command she didn't ignore completely, much like her bubbly owner. So when Sprinkles and Cinder accidentally switch places during the annual police vs. fire department softball tournament, Violet is thrilled by her dog's sudden perfect behavior, while stubborn-yet-charming Sam is horrified to find that his dog no longer listens.

But when they eventually realize and switch the dogs back, Sam and Violet are shocked to find that not everything is as simple as it seems. And a little puppy love might be just the thing they've been missing...

My Review:

A Spot of Trouble by Teri Wilson is a cute, fun, rom-com that will put a smile on your face. With not one, but two adorable dalmatians, this book will not fail to give the reader a smile and a chuckle. 

Violet Marsh runs a cupcake food truck and is the daughter of the local police chief and sister to two of the police department officers. She has the only dalmatian in the seaside town of Turtle Beach, North Carolina, whose name is Sprinkles and is a bit unruly.  When Sam Nash comes to town to take the job of Fire Marshall, nobody believes his dog Cinder, wasn’t stolen from Violet, as Cinder looks exactly like Violet’s dog Sprinkles. 

The local softball tournament between the Police Department and the Fire Department is more of a blood feud than a friendly game, and when Sam and his dog Cinders get involved, Violet must decide which side her loyalties and Sprinkles loyalties preside. 

This is such a sweet, albeit predictable story, with the dogs involving themselves in the romance between their masters.  The book was fast-paced, and the writing was good. The characters were fun, and I related to them both easily.  The town of Turtle Beach is full of quirky characters, especially in the Senior Living Home, and they made for a well-rounded story.  I recommend this book to lovers of sweet romcoms with adorable dogs. I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  2. Nice review Wendy. I enjoy Teri Wilson’s books. Yes they tend to be a bit predictable, but they always make me smile. This sounds fun, especially with the dogs.
