Review: "Stay" by Allie Larkin
I have been hearing great things about Stay since it came out in hardcover, and when I received a surprise copy of the paperback in the mail, I was thrilled! Stay definitely lived up to its hype. Well-written with incredibly lovable characters scattered throughout, reading it was a pleasure. Van comes across as being flawed yet vulnerable, and that made me love her even more. The fact that she was willing to be the maid of honor in her best friend's wedding despite her strong feelings for the groom made her incredibly endearing, and I was rooting for her the whole way through.
You don't need to be a dog lover to adore Stay or to fall in love with Joe, the over sized German Shepherd and the star of the show. Filled with funny moments, lovable characters and topped off by the perfect ending, Stay is one of those books that I can wholeheartedly recommend to women's fiction fans.
