Todd Richards loves his Dobermans, so
when one of them is injured when his normal vet is closed,
he goes to Dr. Keith Andersonís clinic instead. Dr. Keith
is kind, very attractive, and, as Todd discovers when the
man asks him out for a drink, gay. Soon Todd and Keith are
involved, and everything is wonderful between them. Will a
tragedy destroy what theyíve been building together?
Manís Best Friends is a rather uneven novel.
I liked Todd, the first person narrator. He loves his dogs
and his job, and heís loyal and giving to a fault. Keith
seemed almost too good to be true at first. The sweet, sexy
doctor seemed to fall for Todd right away, just as Todd fell
for him. They were in love right away. The tragedy that
pulled them apart was realistic and sad, but their reunion
struck me as a bit too quick. The second part of the novel
felt almost like a whole other story, picking up quite a bit
later in the storyline. I wasnít sure where PA Brown was
going with it until another tragedy, this one a lot more
action-packed, struck. While I liked Manís Best
Friends well enough, it wasnít as engaging or
emotional as Ms. Brownís mystery books.
