Review: New Tricks

For this review, I chose New Tricks by Kelly Moran.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Loving someone is something you never forget how to do . . .

Zoe Hornsby has enough on her plate. Her pet grooming business tucked inside her friends’ veterinarian clinic is busy, and all her free time outside of work is dedicated to caring for her mother’s ailing mind. Dating is certainly not on her agenda. For all she cares, the town gossips of Redwood Ridge, Oregon, can set their matchmaking sights on someone else. Because no way would she consider sexy veterinarian Drake O'Grady her perfect guy. Once upon a time, she may have harbored a little crush, but he’d only had eyes for her best friend. And the crazy attraction building between her and Drake now? Down boy, down.

After Drake lost his wife to cancer, he’s finally clawed his way out of grief and beginning to feel more like a part of the human race. But he’s appalled to learn his prying family thinks he's ready to jump in the dating pool. And the woman they thrust at him couldn’t be more inappropriate. As his dead wife’s best friend, Zoe is off limits. Even if they seem to share a common sadness, she is too potent a personality to get romantically tangled with. Yet she’s making his heart beat and blood roar like he never thought it could again. And he doesn't want to just exist anymore . . .

This is Book #3 in the Redwood Ridge series.  I have read Book #2 in this series and I want to go back to read Book #1.  I love books with the hero or heroine being a veterinarian.  I love that it is about dogs.  I try to read a book or 2 every few months in honor of our older husky, Zeus, we lost days before Christmas.

If your best friend died and you have this attraction for her husband, what would you do?  You all were good friends.  Grew up together.  This was an emotional read.  Drake lost his wife to cancer.  How is he suppose to move on?  Zoe has always been there for him.  I loved that Heather was in this book, too, for both Drake and Zoe.  Heather was very much loved by both of these people.  It warmed my heart how Zoe kept her memory alive even though she wanted a future with Drake.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
