Publisher's Summary

"Such a funny, sparky book...An ideal read for anyone who's a fan of Christmas or dogs - or both!" (Sophie Kinsella, New York Times best-selling author)

Thirty-one-year-old Charlie isn't in the mood for Christmas cheer....

Her boyfriend has left her for his personal trainer, her mother has absconded with her latest husband for the holidays, and - adding insult to (literal) injury - her London apartment has just been destroyed by a gas leak. Single, mildly concussed, and temporarily homeless, Charlie realizes there's only one place to go: Cozy Canine Cottages, where she'll spend the season looking after her cousin Jez's doggy day care center. And if she's not exactly a dog person, well, no one has to know.... 

But her plans for a quiet Christmas in a quaint country village are quickly dashed. Peggy the pregnant beagle and Malcolm the anxious Great Dane seem determined to keep her up all night. A strange man has been casing her cousin's house. And where is Cal, the unbearably patronizing but disturbingly handsome local vet, when she needs him? 

As the days tick down to Christmas, Charlie's life has never felt so out of control - but with some help from her new four-legged friends, she just might learn a thing or two about living in the moment, embracing the unexpected and opening herself up to love....

Excellent, enjoyable work from 1st-time author

What a great find! Fun, lighthearted book, well-written and performed. Entertaining, engaging, filled with quirky, interesting, believable (human) characters. Although Malcolm the Great Dane might be my favorite personality of all. I picked up the paperback in an airport and enjoyed it so much I found the audiobook here so I could enjoy it again. Can’t wait to hear more from this author. Definitely one of my favorites from this genre.

More sophisticated & fun than silly cover sketch

Would never have chosen this book except one of the funniest and talented writers I've encountered, Sophie Kinsella recommended it when I was having a really hard time and needed some escape and uplifting. Not an avid dog lover, all Cox' canine characters won me over—no easy task! The inhabitants of this quaint small town drew me in and gave me a humorous sleigh ride away from my own seemingly unsolvable conundrums, far enough away to actually give me the needed perspective which remedied them. So much better did I feel after listening to Mutts and Mistletoe. Osmosis or just fun diversion from my life, it was just what I needed.
