The Dachshund Wears Prada: 10/29/22

The Dachshund Wears Prada

The Dachshund Wears Prada by Stefanie London (2022) is the start of the Paws in the City romance series. Isla Thompson was a social media mavin until she accidentally streamed a Disney starlet vomiting. Now she's been reduced to being the dog sitter for billionaire Theo Garrison who lives as a recluse in his grandmother's penthouse.

Theo's dog was his grandmother's, a pampered dachshund, was a rescue dog and has people issues. Starved for love and clearly grieving the death of her person, she has become a miniature hell hound. But for whatever reason, she likes Isla.

The book's title comes from the Instagram Isla sets up for Camilla. Isla, while under an NDA to respect Theo's privacy (think of him as Bruce Wayne without the Batman outlet for his angst), she does her best to keep the posts anonymous but funny. In the close knit Manhattan world of pampered pooches, Camilla's site goes viral.

But this isn't just a story about another online pet become a celebrity and Instagram influencer. This is a romance. It's about how four broken hearted individuals come together as found family: Isla, Theo, Camilla and Isla's teenage sister, Dami. It's also about the simmering sexual tension between Isla and Camilla.

The book is a good read for fans of the The Beck Sisters romances by Trish Doller.

The second book in the series is Pets of Park Avenue (2022) and it releases on December 6th.

Five stars
