In House Trained, Alex and her husband, Barry are happily married with no kids but with a dog named Marie until one day a shocker comes their way in the form of a daughter that Barry didn't know he had. When Marie aka Wren shows up on their doorstop with a daughter of her own named Ruthie, every little thing gets turned upside down and when Wren's mother shows up, the next 48 hours will test Alex and Barry's relationship. After a major fight, Alex is kicked out and when she comes home to try to make up with Barry, she discovers the house is on fire and everything is lost but not everything as things fall into place like they should.

When I first read this book, I just couldn't get into it especially since the first chapter all Alex was worried about was why is Barry talking to his private part but after I got past that, it turned into a pretty descent book. This book reminds you that family isn't cookie cutter and to have a surprise like a daughter just showing up on your doorstep will send anyone into tailspin trying to figure things out. I think adding the dog in the book was pretty awesome since all of us that don't have kids, do think that they are just as much part of the family as well.

Thank You to Jackie Bouchard for writing a good novel that makes me want to go read more books by you!!!
