Listen to Your Heart by Fern Michaels

Josie Dupre and her twin sister Kitty own a catering business in Louisiana. Having inherited the business three years ago from their parents when they died, Kitty and Josie are finally in the black. In fact, they are so busy they are turning away customers. Being so busy Josie wonders why she has been thinking about her mom a lot lately. It could be the fact she is about to turn thirty or that Kitty is getting married. She is feeling sorry for herself when Paul Brouillette and his boxer, Zip come into her life. It was not love at first sight between the humans but it was between the dogs. Rosie, a Maltese and Zip couldn't stand to be apart. Paul and Josie get together for the dogs and the next thing they know they are in love too.

It is not smooth sailing at first. Paul runs his family business but his first love is architecture. He also doesn't have a great relationship with his mom. After his sisters died, his mom shut him out. So he runs the business to earn his mom's love. Needless to say, he has commitment issues. When he is in New York on business, Paul is mugged. While he is recovering in the hospital, Paul comes to some conclusions. Number one is that he wants to be with Josie. He straightens out his business life and then goes and gets the girl.

This was a sweet book by Fern Michaels. It is only a little over 200 pages. If you are in the mood for a quick, light read, this is a great choice.
