The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks
Julie Barenson's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died - a Great Dane puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now four years have passed. Still living in the small town of Swansboro, North Carolina, twenty-nine-year-old Julie is emotionally ready to make a commitment to someone again. But who? Should it be Richard Franklin, the handsome, sophisticated engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead, Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire...
I originally owned this book as a gift but it's been lost in a fire. You can purchase the paperback on Amazon for $10.98.
I reviewed it at 4 of 5 stars
A compelling story of love and healing. I really enjoyed this book. The dog is a great addition to this story and he brings great changes to what co-characters are expected to be. The Hero and Heroine are so detailed and their development both as characters and in their relationship makes this book really worth reading.
