This is the second installment in Judi McCoy's dog walker series. Ellie is the dog walker and Rudy is the yorki-poo she can communicate with. That's right, Ellie has the unusual ability to talk to dogs. Not like you and I do, because the dogs answer her. The premise of this book is that Rudy inherits money from the a homeless man living in Central Park who the pair befriended. Although this is the first book I've read in the series, Ellie obviously started a relationship that is continued here with a police officer named Sam. Sam obviously broke her heart in the first book and he tries to set things right in this installment. I'll definitely look for more in the series.
