The Love Dog, with Elsa Watson


Bainbridge author Elsa Watson will be back with her latest tale, The Love Dog. Her irresistable books, including Dog Days and the eBook A Christmas Tail, are a perfect antidote to our Pacific Northwest winter, so come join us for some fun!


The plot: Fired from her job as a paralegal, Samantha Novak is in trouble. When "Telltale," a Hollywood tabloid, asks her to write an expose on the reality television dating show, "The Love Dog," Samantha is thrilled. She's always dreamed of being a writer, and the fat paycheck won't hurt. After being recently left at the altar, she's not too keen on love either.

Hired as the canine star's handler, Samantha finds that digging up dirt on set is harder then she thought. Apollo, the show's star, is a sweet golden retriever who takes his job as the "love dog" very seriously. He only wants to help couples fall in love and make everyone on set happy. Mason Hall, the show's producer and leading man, is down to earth, charming, and... very attractive.

If Samantha doesn't reveal to the world that the reality show isn't exactly "real," her new career will be over before it starts. But when she falls in love with Apollo and Mason, will she still have the heart to expose "The Love Dog's" dirty secrets?

Elsa Watson returns with another charming "tail"! 


From 1996 to 1998, Elsa Watson served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, where she began writing novels, all in longhand. She now lives on an island in Washington State with her family, a cat, and two dogs. Her short work has appeared in the "Writers Journal," "Snowy Egret, " and "Renaissance Magazine." She currently works at the West Sound Wildlife Shelter, a wildlife hospital and education center.
