Giovanni Roma was jilted at the altar. Twice. Meeting Natalie is an enchanting distraction—too bad she’s engaged to another man. To top it off, Giovanni’s mother has a mouth with no filter and is obsessed with finding her son a suitable baby-maker.
Natalie DeMarco is a good cop with one problem. Cold feet. Her fiancé is a decent man, but she’s starting to wonder if decent is good enough. Maybe the doubts could be blamed on Giovanni, that guitar-making Italian hunk next door.
Giovanni knows he must do something, but things get out of hand when he learns he’s not the only one who objects to the wedding.
Giovanni Roma was left at the altar, for a second time. Not wanting to deal with his family and guests, he silently leaves the church, gets in his car and almost runs over a little dog. The owner of the dog is an old woman, panicking because her “Precious” has escape and is in danger. Giovanni is a good man with a good heart, and decides to do something good in a bad day. He leaves his car on the road and runs after the dog. After some running he is able to catch little Precious, but when he returns to his car a very attractive policewoman is giving him a ticket for wrongful parking. Could his day get any worse?
After explaining to the policewoman the events that led him to leave his car in the middle of the road, she feels bad for him and lets him go with just a warning.
What Giovanni didn’t know was that the policewoman was his neighbor’s granddaughter, Natalie DeMarco, and she is staying next door for the next two weeks, before her wedding.
Circumstances let Natalie and Giovanni to become friends and soon after Natalie starts to question if her marriage to Jacks is really what she wants or if she’s simply settling because she thinks is the right thing/moment to do it.
Giovanni and Natalie make a perfect couple. They are just what the other needed to be complete and happy. It was very sweet and fun to see them fall in love.
The secondary characters are hilarious especially Giovanni’s mother with her matchmaking antics and Natalie’s grandfather with his wonderful stories and his love for his deceased wife.
Are you having a bad day? Do you need something to cheer you up and made you laugh? Did you read a very dark book and need something to lighten your mood? If you answer yes to any of those, read this book. Dog Day Wedding by Rich Amooi is a fun, sweet, cute story with many laughing out loud moments.
Dog Day Wedding was my first book by Rich Amooi, but it won’t be my last, that’s for sure.
My Verdict: 4 ½ Paws
