By Catherine Lanigan
We hope you enjoyed coming along with us and Frenchie, as we got to know more about Sophie’s and Jack’s stories! If you missed any of the tour stops, go back and check them out now…
Launch – From Frenchie’s Point of View
Bark! Sorry. Hi! My name is Frenchie. I’m a six and a half pound Yorkie Poo and I’m here to welcome you to “The Shores of Indian Lake” series by Catherine Lanigan. If you are returning to our small town, I’m glad to meet you, too. This is a new role for me, being a star, I mean. I’ve been a rescue dog, which wasn’t fun. I like to have a family. In fact, I have to have humans to love. Humans can be fun but they can also be pretty clueless about the essentials in life. Take Sophie Mattuchi and Jack Carter, for instance. I thought I’d never get these two together.
Katie’s Clean Book Collection – Review
“I adored Frenchie, the dog, who really helped thread the story line together. The characters are multifaceted and have depth. I love the process they each developed in. This is a town that I would love to read more about.
I recommend this to readers who enjoy a clean romance with good characters and depth.”
Rockin’ Book Reviews – Excerpt
Still, the guy moved with the grace of a panther. He was the kind she couldn’t help being attracted to. Her nerve endings sizzled as if touched with electrodes. She couldn’t stop the pounding of blood through her veins that didn’t come from exercise. It was automatic. She was being Sophie.
Brooke Blogs – Sophie Mattuchi
Jeremy was a heroin addict. Sometimes he would pass out and forget to feed me or give me water. He loved me very much and I loved him. That’s when he decided he had to give me up. The day we met Sophie, I knew she had a heart as big as outdoors.
Hardcover Feedback – Review
“I really liked Sophie. I loved her desire to help others, how she volunteered and helped her friends, but I didn’t like how she stretched herself so thinly…but thought it was nice she had people in her life that cared and tried to keep her in check.”
Wishful Endings – This or That
Are you guys ready to get to know a little more about Catherine? Here we go:
Chocolate or fruity candy?
I’m with you there 100%. 🙂 Read a book or watch TV?
Read and read more. I seldom watch television anymore, but I do watch movies on DVD.
Nicole’s Book Musings – Jack Carter
Meeting Jack for a little dog like me was pretty intimidating at first. He’s a big guy. Strong. And handsome—for a human. He looks like that movie star, Hugh Jackman. Jack’s been running for years. The first thought in my head was that if I came to live with him, he might want me to run with him. He has long legs. Mine are short and I knew this wasn’t going to work.
EskieMama Reads – Excerpt
Sophie continued drying his pants’ legs, pretending she hadn’t heard what he’d just said. She was thankful she was on the floor because being this close to Jack, in this intimate setting, had turned her bones to jelly.

What would you like my readers to know?
I especially love to hear from readers. It is from your comments and desires that I steer my course of the next book. God willing, I hope to write 26 Shores of Indian Lake stories in all. In each of the up-coming books, I introduce new characters who will have their own stories in the future. Mrs. Beabots will always be the anchor that holds everyone together, the matchmaker who wants to see every one happy.
Colorimetry – Humans Can be So Silly
As a dog, I hear a lot of gossip and advice-giving. I heard every word of Sophie’s concern for me when she and Mrs. Beabots were making tarts for the Recovery Alliance.
Jack’s office is a hot-bed of confidential material. Of course, this is due to his clients who are buying insurance to protect their children and families. But sometimes, they don’t want insurance for errant children or grandchildren. Sometimes they have lost their jobs and have to stop their premiums. Or some have medical issues. It’s really sad what humans have to deal with sometimes. No wonder they need us dogs so desperately to love them.
Getting Your Read On – Review
“. . . but the story is a good one and worth sticking with. If you love a gentle romance with slow build, you will love this book.”
underneath the covers – Nurses Make Great Girlfriends
I’ve decided that if I were a human and since I’m female, I’d be a nurse like Sophie. For starters, even though she was on her “self-improvement” regime and she was eating healthy, her nursing career also taught her that we all only live once.
Falling Leaves – Review
“I definitely recommend this book to everyone, whether you’re in the middle of struggle or you’re just content with your life.
A story of trust, forgiveness, hope, pain, death and love that you will cherish.”
Her choice. His consequences.
Nurse Sophie Mattuchi has seen a lot of angry patients in the ER, but no one’s ever rattled her like Jack Carter. He has no right to blame her for his friend’s death. Sophie did everything she could. Didn’t she? Yet his accusations sting, and that sets off all kinds of internal alarms. She’s never cared this much about any man’s opinion of her. But Jack is different. He stirs up feelings. Strong feelings. Guilt. Anger. Attraction. Curiosity. Sympathy. Sophie’s definitely not interested in Jack, but even if she was, he’d never forgive her for the decision she made that night in the hospital. Would he?
