A trip to the beach is not just a chance to soak up some sun and dig your feet in the sand; it is also a place where you can relax and finally catch up on your pleasure reading. Even if you are not headed to the beach, these books are a good addition to your summer reading list.
While individual tastes in books may differ, the DogWatch Hidden Fence team loves good beach reads, especially those that feature our favorite subject – dogs! So for this week, we are sharing with you our favorite dog-themed books. Check out our list below, and visit our own Amazon store to purchase any or all of the titles!
The Dogs of Babel, by Carolyn Parkinson
A tragic yet redemptive tale of love and loss, Parkinson’s novel is a best-seller and a New York Times Notable Book. The book centers on Paul, a linguistics professor who is mourning the recent death of his wife Lexy. Lexy’s death was ruled an accident, but Paul is suspicious. To find out the truth, he attempts to train his Rhodesian Ridgeback Lorelai – the only witness to his wife’s death – to speak. This emotional mystery is sure to draw you in and keep you engrossed until after the sun sets.
