{{Book Review}} Sit, Stay, Love | Take one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you're ready for a lesson in love . . . Tippy style.

Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother's elderly dog, Tippy, he's quick to call on a pet-sitting service.

Gina isn't thrilled to be a dog sitter when her aspirations lie in the classroom. Furthermore, she can't abide the unfriendly Cal, a man with all the charm of a wet towel. But with no other prospects and a deep love for all things canine, she takes the job caring for Tippy.

As Gina travels through Cal's world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too . . .

Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.

*My Review*
When first reading the title of the book "Sit Stay Love", you might think it is a training guide for your dog. This book is so light hearted so much fun read.  Tippy is the name of the dog(and star) in the book. Tippy does some really funny things throughout the book. All of the characters in this story seem so real and very easy to connect to. There are some moments in the story that are tear jerkers. "Sit, Stay, Love" is a story about loss, learning to love, learning self worth and reconciliation. I loved reading every bage of this this book.
