Fetching Sweetness

Dana Mentink. Harvest House, $12.99 trade paper (224p) ISBN 978-0-7369-6623-8
Stephanie Pink is on the verge of realizing her dreams of being a literary agent when author Agnes Wharton promises to share a coveted manuscript with her. But Agnes's dog, Sweetness, runs off before Stephanie can meet with Agnes, and the eccentric author gives her a strange stipulation: bring back Sweetness or no manuscript. Desperate not to lose the hope of her success, Stephanie embarks on a bizarre journey with mysterious Rhett Hastings, whom she meets a campground while tracking the runaway dog. Rhett is a wealthy CEO with a new desire for following God's plan for his life, and he's trying to reunite with his sister, Karen, whose life he once ruined. Together, Rhett and Stephanie road trip across three states in a rundown RV to see Karen and deliver Sweetness safely to Agnes. As Rhett and Stephanie get to know each other, they begin to doubt the reality and importance of their dreams, and start to share a new one. Mentink (Sit, Stay, Love) writes with a humorous style and an openness with her characters that makes them relatable. Agent: Chip MacGregor, MacGregor Literary. (Aug.)
