Author: Abby Tyler
Genre: Sweet Romance
Release Date: May 7, 2019
Abby Tyler welcomes you to the witty, well-meaning busybodies of Applebottom, Missouri, where the community its pies -- and its matchmaking -- very seriously.
Savannah Perkins has always loved the animal shelter her father started in memory of her mother. It’s been her life’s work and a peaceful place for her to care for him as he declines into dementia.
But it’s a hard living, and volunteers have gotten difficult to come by.
No one is more surprised by Luke Southard’s arrival in Applebottom than his father. Mayor T-bone had no idea he had a son.
While Luke waits on the local veterinary school to accept his transfer, the town suggests he help out at the shelter.
But some of the local boys take issue with his closeness to Savannah, blaming him for vandalism around town. When the new vet school refuses him, Luke figures he’s overstayed his welcome.
It will take some quick thinking by the town to help Luke and Savannah save both the shelter and their tender new love.
Abby Tyler loves puppy dogs, pie, and small towns (she grew up in one!) Her Applebottom Matchmaker Society books combine the sweet and wholesome style of romance she loves with the funny, sometimes a-little-too-truthful characters she remembers from growing up in a place where everyone knew everybody’s business.
