It’s easier to be brave with a good dog by your side.
Leslie Durant, owner of Pretty Paws, doesn’t care that she’s always giving all of her time and attention to others: It’s worth the joy of helping abandoned animals find loving forever homes. But if she can’t find a way to bring more money into the struggling shelter, the sacrifices she’s made will all be for nothing.
Then her brother leaves her with an inheritance, with two stipulations: She must work with her estranged mother to host a successful charity event and find a loving home for Peter’s dog, Kiwi. But Leslie’s not sure she can forgive the woman who cowered in a corner while Leslie’s father hit her.
Kiwi was severely abused before Peter adopted her. No matter where Leslie places Kiwi, the nervous cockapoo keeps showing up on her doorstep. She seems determined to stay with Leslie, no matter what.
Even though Kiwi is terrified of everything, the sweet little dog makes Leslie feel braver. With Kiwi by her side, can Leslie save the shelter, face down the demons of her past, and take the risk of forgiving the mother who let her down when Leslie needed her most?
The Kiwi to My Heart is the sixth and final book in the Soul Mutts series, heartwarming stories of lost dogs finding new homes with the humans they were born to heal.
