What they are saying about You Lucky Dog...

"I enjoyed reading this book and kept wondering how the author was going to end it, but all my possible predictions were false. Finerman managed a believable ending, which increased the fun and for the most part cancelled any sadness that one might have felt for these star-crossed lovers.” —Book Loons

"As the story enters the many fun adventures of Emma and her husband Jake the dog, Finerman accomplishes the almost impossible:  she creates a fun, meaningful novel with an ending that makes us feel good and remain happy.  Simply alluring, You Lucky Dog by Finerman is one woofy summer read that will not put you to sleep!" —Champagne Living

In Debra Finerman’s newest novel, you find out in chapter one that Jake (husband of Emma) has been killed in a car crash. Well not quite. Seems his dog was in the car at the time of the crash and now somehow Jake finds himself alive, but living in the body of his dog.  Oh, and he can talk too.  So, suspend all disbelief and go with the flow, and you will find this a fun and funny, delightful beach read.  And dog lovers will give this an added star. Get the book.

"This was a very unusual but heart-warming read. You Lucky Dog deals with themes of life and death and how true love never dies. Jake is a highly likeable character and some of his exploits as he gets to grips with his new doggy identity make for humorous reading. The story is well plotted with twists and turns with an array of fun characters (both human and canine) and is wonderful escapism." —Chicklit
