Publisher's Summary

Alex Halstad, a childless-by-choice interior designer and dog mom, is a true perfectionist. But her orderly life turns chaotic when the teenage daughter her husband, Barry, never knew he had shows up on their doorstep...with a baby girl of her own in tow.

While Alex's dog enthusiastically welcomes the new arrivals, Alex struggles with the loss of her steady routine. She desperately needs peace and quiet to get her business back on track before Barry finds out she's spent most of their savings. Meanwhile, the arrival of the girls stirs up old insecurities, and Alex can't help but worry that Barry's ex will make an entrance too. With her tidy life a distant memory, will Alex be able to learn from her dog the true meaning of love and acceptance?

From bestselling author Jackie Bouchard comes a humorous and heartwarming look at how life creates opportunities to love in surprising ways.

    Story
    "The "Vocal Fry" Ruined It"

    I really enjoyed the synopsis. But I could not finish this book. i really tried . the narrator's Vocal Fry (it's a real term. Look it up) grinded on my ears and my nerves. She purref and growled thru the entire book. I didnt get past tge discovery of the daughter before I threw in the towel. i love stores with dogs in them. But I just can't.

    What did you love best about House Trained?

    This story was about real life issues and how a new perspective will change ones heart in the blink of an eye. I learned something from every character and the ending left me smiling the rest of the day. Highly recommend it!

    The truth about what what the main character meant to her husband.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Inflection of emotion


    Any additional comments?

    Such a great book! I was very surprised. I would sit in my car after getting home just to finish chapters.
