Synopsis from Goodreads:

It's the first day of Ninna's job in the local animal shelter...and a dog is talking to her. Not just any dog...a fat, old, smart-alecky Basset Hound who says his name is Mosey.

She can't quit, she needs this job. And then there's the yummy vet. Who turns out to live across the street from her in a much bigger house than her tiny house. Big enough to hold a few animals - including the mouthy Mosey. With all this going on, she doesn't have time to worry about the rash of break-ins and the sense of being watched. She's too busy worrying that she's nuts.

My Review:

What an interesting concept for this novella. I think that I would absolutely love it if it were me. It would be so cool to be able to speak with animals, especially the loved ones who are no longer with us.

This was a quite well written and captivating novella. Mayer leads her readers to the conclusion through some interesting ups and downs rather than pulling and pushing them there. The characters were also quite well developed considering the story’s length. You got to know the 3 main characters quite well. However, at the end, I was left hanging on the status of the building relationship.

As a whole, this was a very cute and touching novella. It really gave me a lot to think about and more than a little enjoyment on the way. It was a definite escape from reality as we know it, to reality as it could be.
