About the Book:
From international best-selling author, Jeanne Bannon, comes the story of Jack O’Hurley, a man who’s protected his broken heart by running away and refusing to open himself to love. After years of hiding behind any excuse not to let his walls down, he can’t help but be intrigued when he meets the most unusual woman he’s ever set eyes on. Star is certainly not what he’s been looking for but she just might be what he needs.
As Jack begins to fall in love with the eccentric Star, another woman vies for his attention. Torn between the two very different but equally alluring ladies, he puts into play his tried and true system for determining whether he will continue to date a woman — introducing each to his dog, Phil.
Crazy as it may seem, Jack trusts Phil’s instincts more than he does his own. The only problem is that none have yet to pass the Phil Test.

This was an extremely sweet book. It was also a very fast read for me. It took me about 3-4 hours to read and it was an easy read. If your looking for a feel good book then this is the book that you are looking for.
I feel that this book was a bit predictable. After everything that happens within the book, the people that should fall in love do fall in love and it’s a happily ever after. Which is all well in good. I love a happy ending with the best of them.
I find it weird that some person would just walk up to someone the way that Star did and everything will happen the way that Star says it will. The other worldly stuff that is thrown into the story is a bit happenstance for me also. I feel the author just throws the “occult” stuff in there because of the the name of the character. I do not see any reason for any of it in the book.
I actually find the “occult” parts of the book to be off-putting. There is no other mention of it in the book before he meets Star or while he is not meeting with Star. I have nothing against the “occult” part of the book whatsoever. I would like to point out, it just feels that it was forced into the book and has no place within the book.
I also find that the other woman in the book is forced. I really find that the book overall does not have a fluid flow to it. Feels that some aspects of the book are forced and should not be in it.
Like I said earlier if you just want a feels good, everyone gets what they want in the end, type of book then this is your book.
