Libby (a big-city girl) and Luke (the big dreamer) give up the city life to move to a small fishing village, where he buys and operates a commercial fishing boat and she runs a small diner that the locals love. The two of them are determined to live out his dream, when an event even Libby could not have prepared for leaves her running both businesses with the help of a friend. The Salty Dog is about a strong, independent woman who, when faced with hard times, never gives up – even when it comes to love.

***Lauren – #NerdGirlSphinx’s  Review***

 I have to say that I quite enjoyed this book.  It was a quick, easy read, and one of those that are nice and light.  A feel-good book.

At first, I thought I wouldn’t enjoy the story.  It kind of read like a fairy tale (think the beginning of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), which made it seem a little hokey.  But once you get into the actual story, it was rather enjoyable.

Libby’s character was well developed enough, but I didn’t really connect on a level I usually do with a book that kind of stabs me in the guts.  But, like I said, this was a light read, not a heavy book.  It reminded me a bit of a Nicolas Sparks book, or possibly a Lifetime Movie.  That is not putting the book down, as I enjoy both ;)

Solid 3.5 stars :)
