Review: 12 Dogs of Christmas

When things in the city go sideways, Ally sees it as a sign to travel to Vermont to her grandparents for the holidays - and maybe even longer. But she's surprised to discover the kennel her grandparents have been running for years in losing it's town funding after the first of the year. And there are still 12 dogs left to find homes.

One of the council members, the town's Grinch, has a change of heart. While he can't help the town budget, he does volunteer to help find the dogs homes before the funding disappears. It doesn't help that his niece (whom he's legally responsible for) has been pestering him for a dog for ages. There just isn't enough time in the day for everything.

At first Ally isn't impressed with Ben, but he grows on her. Ben comes up with great ideas to showcase the dogs. The more time they spend together, the more they realize that it's not a bad thing, and the more the town gossips about them. But for Ben, his niece comes first, and he's not about to take a chance on someone who isn't sure they're staying in Vermont...
My Thoughts: This is the first book in a new series - lots of small town charm. And I love that it's set in Vermont. I loved the dogs in this book - they were all adorable and super cute. To be honest, they stole the book a little bit. I loved Ben's niece Astrid. I loved the banter between Ben and Ally. And how they worked together to find homes for all the dogs. I can't wait to read more books in the series. If you're a Hallmark movie watcher - this book is perfect for you!
