And then there's Daisy, a Web code writer, and her hyperactive Jack Russell, Bailey. Her tightly wound world spins out of control when she discovers the chaos within and meets a mysterious dog trainer whose teaching style is definitely hands-on.
Finally there's Shar, professor of ancient history at Summerville College, who wakes up one morning to find her neurotic dachshund, Wolfie, snarling at an implacable god sitting at her kitchen table, the first thing in her life she hasn't been able to footnote.
What on earth is going on in this unearthly little town? It's up to Abby, Daisy, and Shar to find out before an ancient goddess takes over southern Ohio, and they all end up in the apocalyptic doghouse...
"Crusie is a master of fast-paced witty dialogue." ( Seattle Times)

I am a big Jennifer Crusie fan. This book is a departure from her usual story's. However is was a very fun and laugh out loud story. I do not understand the bad reviews, except perhaps it just isn't their type of story. Not all readers like supernatural stories so maybe that is it. To enjoy this book just suspend the concept of disbelife for awhile. I was sad to see the story end and know I am going to listen Dogs and Goddesses again.

Giggles and more giggles
I would highly recommend this very light-hearted and funny book. It made me laugh outloud to the point that I had to stop walking more than once on my daily walks.

Okay, it's not great literature, but sometimes you want burgers and fries instead of haute cuisine. I'm a big dog fan so I couldn't resist a romance novel where each of the 4 heroines comes with her own canine companion.

I really liked this book. It was funny as all get out, and sexy and cute. The reader was very good at making the voices of each character distinctive.

This is very light reading that I found delightful. The characters were such fun and it was wonderful to have an "older woman" as a main character for those of us that are not in our early 20's.

Dogs and Goddesses
I've been a Jennifer Crusie fan, though I did hesitate to buy this book. The beginnging was a little slow, but it picked up the pace and I soon got into the book and enjoyed it

I'm a big fan of Jennifer Crusie and dogs so I thought cool! But this was just bad; bad and redundant. I'm good with the magic, sex with hot guys and sisterhood theme but EVERYTHING was so totally over the top. Shar's orgasms from the colors of the paint while painting the kitchen--by herself--the scene just went on forever and well besides being redundant I just don't nee that much information to get the point. After all, there was a great looking GOD in the next room who would have been happy to help! And this keeps happening-the wind blows, the cookies smell good, her dress ruffles- Shar is off.
There are some good one liners but overall the dogs have the best ones and I am use to the women being intelligent in Crusie's books. This was just not worth the credit or the time.

From the author of Welcome to Temptation?
If you haven’t read any Jennifer Cruise books before now I would NOT start with this one. I’ve been a Cruise fan for years, my most favorite may well be Welcome to Temptation, but Faking It, and Bet Me, are on my list of favorites as well, but this? Crusie’s zaniness and love of dogs might be somewhat evident, but it’s nothing like in her other books. As for the performance, no thanks. I found Raudman’s voice to be grating at best. As for the story, I can’t even be sure what the story was because it was like all three authors wrote separate though slightly related stories with the same characters and then smashed it put it together over a day. I was NOT impressed.

This is the second book that I have listened to by Jennifer Crusie and other authors as well but my draw to this book was because Jennifer Crusie's name was attached. I really enjoyed this book. I particularly enjoyed all the characters. I loved Abby, Shar, and Daisy and all their dogs, Bailey, Wolfie, and Bowser. One of my favorite parts about the book was since I listened to it, I was able to hear all the different voices that the narrator did. She was a very excellent narrator. I really liked this book becuase while there were some really great love scenes between the characters it was also a big focus on the goddesses and the relationship between the three of them and how they have to work together in order to combine their powers and defeat the goddess that has tried to destroy them.
I also liked how it was the girls that was able to fix everything rather than the male characters in this book. While the guys did try and help it was ultimately the girls that took care of everything in the end and I did appreciate that about this book.
Overall I thought it was a really good well written book. I think it was long but not too long and it didn't drag it all. It moved along nicely and I did like the dogs and all their characteristics and conversations. I think it was a nice added part to the book.

very strange, not expected
i like jennifer crusie, so i bought the book. as other reviewers stated, i would ask for a refund. it was hard to follow: dogs talking and a god coming to life. confusing and not enjoyable. the fun in the fantasy eluded me. i just found the description of the book misleading. it should be updated to tell more about these strange events and be called science fiction. i am not even 1/3 through it yet, but i will finish it, since i paid for it. i have never before wanted to write a review to prevent others from wasting money. this is a first for me. can somone credit me for this book???
