The Dachshund Wears Prada is the first novel in Stefanie London’s Paws in the City series. I’m not ashamed to admit that the title of the book and the series had a lot to do with getting me to pick this one up!
Isla Thompson learned the hard way that once something is on the internet – it STAYS on the internet. Unfortunately for her, this includes a woman going viral for the wrong reasons. Even worse, what happens on the internet doesn’t just linger – it also affects our physical world, which is why Isla is currently very much unemployed.
In a fit of desperation, Isla’s going to take any job that comes her way. She has a little sister to take care of, after all. And that means she’s about to work for a temperamental dog as a glorified sitter.
“And I think you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat animals, actually.”
The Dachshund Wears Prada is undoubtedly one of the more unique concepts I’ve read. Yes, all of the titles and marketing give the impression that it will be based on different stories, and while that might be true on some levels, it is also very much a creation all Stefanie London’s own.
Overall, I have to say that The Dachshund Wears Prada was a surprisingly cute read. Okay, I expected that going in. You can’t promise me romance and little dogs and expect me to assume anything else, okay? It also had a bit of steam for those hoping for something with little fluff.
This was a fun, quirky start to a series that I doubt will be full of personality! I believe the next book will follow a different set of characters, giving readers a chance to dive into another romance and series of events.
Thanks to HQN and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
