Summary
Life for Emma isn't good. The world knows her as Princess Anya on Dark Castle, but then her character gets the ax, literally. The cherry on top is finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman. She needs a break, and sanctuary comes in the form of Rosemont, a gorgeous estate in California promising rest and relaxation. Then she meets the owner's equally gorgeous grandson, ex-hockey player, and current recluse Lucian Osmond, and she sees her own pain and yearning reflected in his eyes. He's charming when he wants to be but also secretive and gruff, with protective walls as thick as Emma's own. Despite a growing attraction, they avoid each other. But then there's an impromptu nighttime skinny-dip, and Lucian's luscious homemade tarts and cream cakes start arriving at Emma's door, tempting her to taste life again. In trying to stay apart, they only grow closer, and their broken pieces just might fit together and make them whole.

Summary
"Told through the eyes of a very grumpy yet lovable mutt, a funny and touching tale of aging, death, friendship, and life that proves sometimes a dog's story is the most human of all. Tassen has always been a one-man dog. When his human companion, Major Thorkildsen, dies, Tassen and Mrs. Thorkildsen are left alone. Tassen mourns Major by eating too many treats, and Mrs. T by drinking too much. But the two unexpectedly find common ground in researching Roald Amundsen's expedition to the South Pole led by a pack of intrepid dogs. But the quiet days Tassen and Mrs. T spend together at the library researching the explorer's arctic adventure are disrupted by the arrival of her son and daughter in-law. Eager to move in to the Major's spacious house, they plan to send Mrs. T to a nursing home. As he contemplates his own fate, Tassen shudders to think what might happen to him! Yet Tassen and Mrs. T aren't about to give up. Inspired by Roald Amundsen and his dogs, this unlikely pair are ready to take on anything life throws at them. Good Dogs Don't Make It to the South Pole is a darkly comedic and whimsical portrayal of aging and death told through a dog's friendship with an elderly woman"-- Provided by publisher.
