Allie Larkin’s first novel, Stay, is a charming tale of love, loss, discovery, and healing.
Smitten with Peter Clarke since she quite literally ran into him six years before, Savannah is head over heels in love. That is, until Peter chooses to marry her best friend rather than her. Devastated, Savannah’s world falls apart and, relying on alcohol to get her through, her life spirals out of control. It’s not until, on a whim, she brings Joe, an unruly 100-pound German Shepherd, to live with her that she starts to pick up the pieces of her life. She leans on her new best furry friend for love and support and in the process learns that not only is recovery from crushing heartbreak possible, but that adventure, fun, and, yes, even romance can blossom.
