Erika’s husband doesn’t want to have kids -- yet. He is in the prime of his life, and he wants to enjoy himself, and I do mean ENJOY himself. But Erika, prima Donna trophy wife that she is, wants what she wants, and if she can’t have it, well, then she wants a puppy. Steven, the husband, doesn’t want a puppy either, but Erika manipulates men, not the other way around, so going behind his back doesn’t seem like a big deal. Subsequent to their argument, she does the obligatory pet store romp, then she calls the shelters, but none of them have exactly what she wants: a Yorkie female, a puppy that she can dress up in ribbons, pamper, and paint its toenails. One she can treat like her little girl, her baby. After having crossed a picket line at the pet store only to find no Yorkies and after having to listen to some preachy shelter worker, Erika, frustrated that she can’t get the designer accessory she wants, starts checking the classified ads. She finds an ad that looks promising and then decides to go off to buy a puppy at some shanty shack puppy mill off a dirt road in Missouri, despite her friend’s warnings. Like most people in this world, Erika has no clue when it comes to the unspoken grotesqueries of the Pet Trade. Anyway, she winds up at a shitty ole deliverance type back-wooded farmhouse where she finds more than a cute little puppy. She finds Levi, his son Jake, and the retard Bubba with no one around to hear her scream.

I want my book back, dammit! Just kidding. If you draw my name, give the book to a deserving soccer mom somewhere in suburbia.

No worries. I am a horror nut so it was difficult for me to part with it, but, alas, I only have so much shelf space in the library.

Living in the Southern Hillbilly state of Tennessee I definitely recognize the backwood farmhouse with a puppy mill outback. I am not the Prima Donna Trophy Wife but it is funny how I have been trying to figure out how I am going to talk my husband into a puppy. We have 12 cats, he doesn't think we need the dog. This book sounds so fascinating I am dying to read it!!! Please, even the cover already has my heart racing!

I love to read and some of my favorite authors are Dean Koontz & Stephen King. This book sounds like it would be on the same level as their works and therefore sounds like one I'd enjoy.
