As I wrote in my bio, I am a dog walker. This includes dog/pet sitting. I am currently staying at a house for 12 days with two doodles (lab and poodle.. love them to death!) While I am here, my aunt, who I currently live with/work for had a couple of dogs at the house with her. One of them was a 4 month old black lab puppy named Bella.
I went home during the day to get some stuff done and as I walk up my back steps, what do I find in shreds on the back porch? My ARC copy of "Something Strange and Deadly" by Susan Dennard. I freaked. I had finished the book already but I haven't completed my review and I am a little upset because I wanted to reference the book for a few things. On top of that, I have read 10 books since I finished SS&D so I don't want to screw anything up when I'm writing the review.
It's not really her fault, she's just a puppy and I had left it on the bedside table.. my aunt made the mistake of thinking that she was just "sleeping" while in the room and this is what has now happened. I thought it was a cute story and I felt like sharing.
Now the question, what do you guys think I should do about my review? Give a brief overview of what I liked/dislike and not give any examples of things from the story? Not write the review at all? Send the publisher what I do have done and explain to them what happend? Any advice would be appreciated and let me say with absolute certainty, I will NOT be leaving any books around my house anymore.
