about the book

Her son needs love and friendship.

Now she’s found the answer to their prayers…

Former barrel racer Caitlyn Calloway wants her son with epilepsy to have everything—even if it means selling her family home. Problem is, the place is in disrepair. Her former crush, service dog trainer Logan Beckett, offers to help. But letting Logan and his dogs into their lives makes the past almost impossible to leave behind… especially when it opens the door to love.

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

caitlyn calloway is in desperate need of funds, and inheriting her childhood home seems to be the answer to her problems—except it needs a whole lot of work before it can be put on the market. neighbor and old friend logan beckett (and the rest of the small town of bluebell canyon, colorado) is willing to help her with the necessary repairs. the challenge, of course, is can she accept the help and get everything done without getting too attached to return to her life in wyoming?

her son's faithful companion is a sweet, sweet story—but the title and cover are definitely misleading. yes, caitlyn's son henry is a big (and adorable) part of the story, and yes, logan trains service dogs. however, the discussion of even getting henry a service dog isn't had until the last third of the book (sorry if that's too much of a spoiler). much more of the story focuses on caitlyn wanting to protect and provide for henry, while feeling crushed under a pile of debt, and henry not wanting to feel different (in a bad way) for his epilepsy diagnosis. and as tough as their circumstances were, i loved seeing them get the reminder—with a little help from logan and bluebell canyon—that maybe, just maybe, God can still have good things in store for the future.

for anyone looking for an enjoyable little contemporary romance—bluebell canyon, colorado is a charming town, full of welcoming characters. henry is a delightful little boy, easy to love. caitlyn and logan have good chemistry, making it a no-brainer to hope they figure out their different circumstances. i had fun reading her son's faithful companion, and i'm sure, if you're interested, you can, too.

i received a complimentary copy from the publisher. i was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions i have expressed are my own.
