MVM Book Review: Do-Ma - The Zen of Slobber by Barbara Boswell Brunner


dogmabadge3

”Dogma”
When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen re-locations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves. Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!” *******************************************


Ashley's Review!

Dog-Ma is a delightful story about a couple who has a love of dogs that transcends time and in their case place. This story is one you must read! I read the synopsis and just had to have it. I had to have it so much that I ASKED to get in on this book tour AFTER the tour was over!!!

You begin your journey into the lives of Barbara and Ray's life with their fur-babies with them starting out. After multiple promotions and business ventures you will go through the happiness and pain right along with them. You feel their excitement when they get a new puppy and you want to cry when tragedy strikes and they lose one of their amazing fur-children.

I am not one for spoilers so I won't go into too much detail but I will say this: YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE A DOG LOVER! You will laugh and cry. Go get it NOW!!!


barbaraboswellbrunner Author Bio Barbara grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with her parents, sister and always a dog, or two or three. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from a small women's college in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Meeting her husband in Washington, DC, they continued together on a journey as self-proclaimed dog addicts. In the ensuing years, she founded three successful businesses in the Pacific Northwest and is a prolific fundraiser for breast cancer research. She and her husband are retired and now reside in Southwest Florida with two dogs and copious amounts of dog fur. She is currently working on indulging her well known flip flop addiction.

Crashers is a modern day cautionary tale in a true to life novel.  A riveting story of love and desperation, greed and redemption.

Fraudulent car accidents is a multi-million dollar racket, involving unscrupulous medical providers, personal injury attorneys, and the cooperating passengers involved in the accidents—and who also receive a portion of the illegal proceeds. Such is the fate of newly engaged, Nathan and Shari, whose joy is tempered by the dark cloud of mounting debt.

A chance encounter with a stranger in whom Shari confides her troubles proves fortuitous: he tells her of a get-rich-quick scheme that will put her and her fiancĂ© on easy street. Seduced by the chance to move from hard times to good times in no time, Sheri takes the carrot offered her, and finds herself acting as a “stuffed passenger”—the “victim” in a staged auto accident. The act goes according to plan and Shari gets her payday, but getting out and breaking free of the insurance fraud underworld will take nothing short of a miracle.

Across the nation, insurance fraud from staged auto accident schemes costs the insured more than $50 billion yearly. Crashers is a true-to-life novel that uncovers how the innocent get lured into the scheme of "cappers" and "hammers."

Day 31: The End of It All :)


So today is the day Yesterday was the day since this didn't post like it was supposed to :)  I am going to let ya know that while I love posting something new often enough for you guys EVERYDAY is HARD no, nearly impossible! We are a team of 3 women PLUS other guest reviewers and for us to struggle with this assignment really said a lot! LOL I think next time we take a challenge it will be a 10 or 15 day challenge instead :) We are just not yet ready for that kind of commitment! LOL

One thing I did love about it was the amount of new readers who messaged us or commented on our page about how they were so happy to have found our site because of the linky on the Nester's Website! That's great because we are always happy to have a new reader or writer! Some people want so bad to blog but think that they can't do it because they do not know how to do HTML code (guess what??? I don't either I learn as I go!) or they don't think that anyone would want to hear what they have to say (yes they do because that's what is great about the internet! There are millions of people JUST LIKE YOU)

We have the links that will stay up on our sites both at the bottom of theses posts AND on the page tabby at the top! I seriously suggest at least checking out the other 31 Day'ers  and seeing if you find any new people to follow! I know I have added around 10 - 20 blogs on my blogroll to read and I couldn't be happier! 

So tell me now in the comments, which one of the 31 days posts did you like most?? Which one will you go back and read?? Which will you share????

Let me know! :) And THANK YOU for sticking with us through the last 31 days! Welcome to all of the new readers! :) Thank you to the Nester for creating an awesome linky! :)

Book Description:
A riveting story of love and desperation, greed and redemption.
Fraudulent car accidents is a multi-million dollar racket, involving unscrupulous medical providers, personal injury attorneys, and the cooperating passengers involved in the accidents—and who also receive a portion of the illegal proceeds. Such is the fate of newly engaged, Nathan and Shari, whose joy is tempered by the dark cloud of mounting debt.
A chance encounter with a stranger in whom Shari confides her troubles proves fortuitous: he tells her of a get-rich-quick scheme that will put her and her fiancĂ© on easy street. Seduced by the chance to move from hard times to good times in no time, Sheri takes the carrot offered her, and finds herself acting as a “stuffed passenger”—the “victim” in a staged auto accident. The act goes according to plan and Shari gets her payday, but getting out and breaking free of the insurance fraud underworld will take nothing short of a miracle.

Read, Rate & Review's Review! 

Shari and Nathan are two hardworking twenty somethings trying to make their dreams come true. Nathan is on the fast track to being promoted at his investment firm and Shari only has a small obstacle of financial aid that stands between her and her completed student thesis.

Things are really looking up for them and Nathan decides to ask Shari to marry him. The next thing you know Shari loses her job and Nathan gets fired and their entire fairy tale world crashes down around them. From that point forward you are thrown into a whirlwind of crazy events and "double agents"!

Another awesome thing about this book??? It's being made into a Major Motion Picture :) I can not wait to see who they pick out to play these characters!!! I am thinking a Zac Efron for Nathan and a Lucy Hale for Shari! Definitely go and grab this book! You will not be sorry you did!!!
