Publisher's Summary

The puppy that stole their hearts is missing!

Grace Wilson loves the wonderful life she has created with her daughter in picturesque Redwood Cove, California - even if she is a bit lonely. To add to their family, mom and daughter adopt a sweet “golden wetweevuh” puppy. And they’re not the only ones who think Star is, well, a star. A television show casts the pup for a role, but it’s the cohost that has Grace’s heart doing tricks.

Dash Diamond is a local celebrity with a megawatt smile. He is less than thrilled when his show’s producers inform him that a puppy has been cast in a new role. But his new costar comes with an owner who makes Dash see stars when he looks at her.

When Star is puppy-napped and held for ransom, all attention goes to her rescue. Grace and Dash can’t act on their undeniable romantic spark of attraction while the pup is possibly in danger. Star is the missing piece. Will they find her in time to complete their puzzle?

Find out if Star can find her way safely home to complete her family, all while proving she’s the star of the show. This sweet tale is one adventure you don’t want to miss out on.... Order your copy and start listening today!

Guarding Grace is book three in the Gold Coast Retrievers series. Each book stands completely on its own, but you'll have more fun if you listen to them all together!

Cute puppy love story

A cute story, with a sweet theme of family, though a little on the saccharine side. The puppy is the best part of the story & it makes me want to get a retriever!

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses

(The narrator did a decent job, handled dialogue well, but her overall reading voice leans a little monotone at times)

puppy love

Grace , a single mom, with a spunky little girl named Clover. She Asked her mom for a puppy. She went ahead and they were happy owners of a golden retriever. How a walk in the park changed their lives forever! . A producer from a talk show Good Morning Gold Coast wanted to use the puppy, as the cohost on the show,to boost ratings. The shows host, arrogant Dash Diamond wanted nothing to do with the little, lively pup. Mayhem , suspense , surprise and puppy love. Can Star win over Dash ? Ann Omasta wrote a sweet romance that had me laughing throughout! Sarah L Colton narration brought each character to life expressing emotion for each one. I was gifted an audiobook in exchange for an honest review!

Sweet

There are times I need a sweet book like this. The story that revolved around this puppy abs her family was heartwarming and easy. It had a great flow and I'd love to read the other books in the series.

The "Star" of the Show

I loved this book. Grace, Clover and Star immediately steal your heart and Dash eventually will as well.

Grace is determined not to give in to her daughter's request for a dog, that is until an adorable puppy steals their hearts. A misunderstanding on a talk show, leaves Dash with an unwanted cohost. You know what the day about children and animals in show business, Star's puppy antics on the show had me laughing. Add in a little mystery and romance and you have a great book, and Guarding Grace doesn't disappoint. This is the third book in this series, but the first book for me --the book works well as a standalone.

I was given this audio book at my request and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Loved it!

I'm not a dog person, but loved this book! I found myself laughing at Star's antics and also becoming frustrated with Dash. I thought the narrator did a wonderful job with the voices as well.

Puppies!

I just about fell in love with this story at the mere mention of puppies! The scene where Grace and Clover were choosing their puppy? Clover was absolutely adorable especially when she reasoned out why she chose Star! It was amazing how their little family grew to a family of three then to a family of four and then to a family of five. Dash was absolutely amazing once he came out of his shell. I enjoyed listening to this story so much!

Star steals the show!!

Dogs are my Achilles heel and this book won my heart! From the very start, Ann Omasta had my attention with her wonderful characters. Grace is a single mother raising her daughter Clover. When they are approached to have their charismatic puppy, Star, be the co-host of a popular talk show with the pompous Dash Diamond, Grace is hesitant. With the decision made, will Dash and Star get along? When danger strikes, we will see what happens! I loved this feel good story. It has a very homey feel and some unexpected twists and turns. Omasta works in humor, family and love into this wonderfully written romance and you surely will not want to miss it.

Sarah L. Colton's performance compliments this book! I love her warm voice and array of voices. She brings all the emotions in, from Grace's frustration to Dash's arrogance and even includes a bark or two. It's a great narration!
