Wednesday Walks & Wags (The Sunday Potluck Club, #2)
In the rapidly blooming courtyard beneath Bridget Moore’s new Anchorage apartment, the signs are unmissable: spring has come. As she unpacks boxes, Bridget hopes that she too is moving forward. With her tight schedule—college, working as a vet tech, volunteering at the animal shelter, caring for her beloved dogs—Bridget strives to keep too busy to register the pain of losing her mother just months ago. Bridget’s new neighbor, Wesley, also seems to be running from something—quite literally. He and his two energetic dogs jog by twice a day. It isn’t long before their paths intersect at their complex’s weekly dog-walking group. Bridget’s fellow members of the Sunday Potluck Club encourage her to enjoy Wesley’s company, though they understand all too well how tricky it can be to navigate life after loss. But just as nature rebounds after the toughest winter, Bridget’s friendships, both human and canine, are a reminder that love and joy go on. With each weekly dog walk, Bridget is rediscovering the simple pleasures that mean so much. A warm smile, a sun-drenched evening, a waggy tail—little by little, they may help Bridget find the path to happiness again...

    I really enjoyed The Sunday Potluck Club so when I saw there was a book two I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.Wednesday Walks & Wags is Bridget's story and is centered around her working through the emotions after the death of her mother. Bridget works full time as a trainee vet, volunteers at an animal shelter and is a member of the Sunday pot luck club along with her three friends, Amy, Hazel and Nichole - who met while taking each of their parents for chemotherapy in Anchorage, Alaska. Bu I really enjoyed The Sunday Potluck Club so when I saw there was a book two I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.Wednesday Walks & Wags is Bridget's story and is centered around her working through the emotions after the death of her mother. Bridget works full time as a trainee vet, volunteers at an animal shelter and is a member of the Sunday pot luck club along with her three friends, Amy, Hazel and Nichole - who met while taking each of their parents for chemotherapy in Anchorage, Alaska. But Bridget is always running, trying to avoid feeling and stretching herself too thin by taking too much on. Bridget has just moved into a pet friendly apartment along with her three dogs and meets her new neighbor, Wesley. He too seems to be running from something .. (I don't want to give anything away)I adore these four women and their friendship. Always willing to drop everything and be a sounding board ... a truly incredible support system. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to what's next ... Huge thank you to Kensington Books and Netgalley for my review copy.

    This is the second book in the Sunday Night Potluck Club book and I actually liked this book more than the first one.If you haven’t read the first book, you could read this as a stand alone but you’d want to know the story.

These books are about a group of women who became best friends after meeting in the hospital. All of them had a parent with cancer. They decided to meet once a week and formed a dinner club.This book is Bridget’s story. I understood Bridget more than Amy from the previous book. Bridget is a huge animal lover. By day she works at a vet’s office. She also volunteers time at an animal shelter. She loves animals so much that fulfilling her dream of being a vet might not actually be the best thing for her. She learns this after her boss shares her concerns after Bridget offers to pay for a patient’s very expensive medicine for her cat because she can’t bear the idea of the cat being put down.I get Bridget. I used to want to be a vet too, until the day I realized that you can’t save them all. When this starts to sink in with Bridget, it scares her that she might not have the right plan with vet school.She’s still struggling with her sadness about losing her mom too. She meets a mysterious new guy at her pet friendly apartment complex. They try to keep each other at a distance but she starts to really value their walks together.My minor criticism of the first book was that they never talked about the food. But that’s not the case here. They actually referred to the foods they cooked, the new guy likes cooking, and a few extra recipes were included at the end of the book.I love the support system these characters have. I love how they show up for each other.I got to read an early ebook edition from NetGalley. Thanks!

Bridget has never properly grieved the death of her cancer stricken mom and instead buries herself in new activities, taking so much on her plate that she may explode soon. Wesley on the other hand is standoffish and quite mysterious, avoiding the company of others.With the help of her support system- Sunday Pot Luck crew, Bridget begins to accept that her future may take a different path than she originally intended and that it's okay to open her life and heart to new possibilities and maybe even her forever kiss.Wednesday Walks and Wags is a heartwarming tale of what a family-napping, mint ice cream and a good cry can do!My utmost appreciation to NetGalley and Kensington Books for providing me with an arc.

The second we have Bridget working as a Vet Tech it's very obvious that the author doesn't know much about the field. And of course she's going to school to be a Veterinarian. Because nobody can be just a vet tech *insert extreme eye roll.* I'm probably being pretty but I dropped a star for the vet tech aspects of the book.The romance was good, the issues the main character deals with are interesting. I really did like the job, just not when anything inside the Veterinary clinic was happening.

These books to me are mostly women’s fiction with romance thrown in, and I love to see the women’s growth. After reading The Sunday Potluck Club and meeting the four friends who came together while caring for their cancer stricken parents, the most intriguing character to me was Bridget. She is lost and surviving by keeping busy and ignoring her emotions. This is a story about dealing with grief, loss and also forgiveness. Wesley was a great character and the conflict was definitely unique - I thought it was so well done! The author’s love for animals truly comes through in Bridget’s character and I’m a sucker for any book with dogs!! And the ending was so satisfying. Can’t wait for the next friend’s story! Thank you to @kensigntonbooks and @netgalley for the gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review! ♥️

But soon its obvious that will not happen.I absolutely love this series, and the stories of Hazel (which is included in a book called Home Sweet Home, with stories by Ferm Michaels and Donna Kauffman as well), and Amy's story in the first book in this series, The Sunday Potluck Club. I was so excited to receive an early copy of this book and hear Bridget's story. This was a sweet, heartwarming, and wonderful book. The characters are wonderful, and you feel like they are your friends as well. This book had be laughing and crying. And I feel that I can relate to this story. I lost my own mother, though not to cancer, and everything that Bridget seems to think and feel, I did as well. I loved this book. I 100% recommend this series, bit it will pull at the heartstrings. Another amazing story by Melissa Storm. Can not wait for Nicole's story.

A trainee vet, volunteer at an animal shelter and member of the pot luck club she fills her time so much so she doesn't have to deal with her overwhelming grief. Then she meets Wesley, an unfriendly but handsome man in her new apartment building. Despite his initial hostility they become running partners. However, her grief and his secrets threaten this friendship. Can they both learn to move on from the past before it is too late?Although grief is a major feature of this novel it is not depressing in any way. It is easy to like Brigit and feel her pain and it was great to see grief dealt with as a journey or a rollercoaster with its ups and downs. I loved the dogs and the focus on the animal shelter and the growing relationship between Wesley and Brigit. Wesley's secret was a shock but liked how it was resolved and also glad that Brigit made the choices she did regarding her own life. The ending is quite emotional but also finally explained the title which had puzzled me all the way through. A great read. I'm looking forward to Nicohle and Corey's story in the next book.

I do not believe that any person "needs" someone but rather wants or want to be with someone...The rest of the book was a very cute novel and I would like to read the following story which is going to be based on Bridget's friend Nichole.I would post my review on my Instagram as @flyonbooks too.Spanish: Este libro es slowburn, no steamy romance que tiene muy presente a la familia y amigos, toca mucho el tema del luto así como también el juzgar a las personas.Me gustó mucho! El romance con esta bien creado, el hecho de que las amigas de Bridget estén siempre presentes y ayudándose una a las otras a seguir adelante me encantó, así como también el "reencuentro" con la familia después de un suceso trágico como fue la muerte de la mamá de B.La única razón por la que no le di 5 estrellas, es por el uso de la palabra "necesita" al referirse a la relación de B con Wesley. No creo que una persona "necesite" de alguien sino más bien que quiera/desee estar con alguien.El resto del libro fue una novela muy linda y me gustaría leer la siguiente historia que se va a basar en la amiga de Bridget, Nichole.

I enjoyed the characters, mostly the diversity in personalities that we often have in our own personal lives, gives them a relatable aspect for readers. I found the dogs very significant, because they weren't just an accessory to the characters but emotional comfort during their hard times. Bridget is still wading through her pain of loss, and slowly finds healthier coping methods, that soon offer her the closure she needs to continue her life. Although Bridget was alive, she wasn't living, but throughout the book we find her starting her life again. Bridget finds comfort in a new mysterious friend, Wesley. Wesley, and his two dogs stumble into Bridget life becoming the catalyst to the healing of Bridget's loss. I wish the characters had more depth than the once stated facts given, I liked Wesley but we didn't get anymore depth to emotionally connect with his character. We only got Bridget who even felt like she was holding back, which as a reader I found hard to relate to. The fire didn't start until the end, so it was difficult to burn through the book. Despite the minor negatives, I would recommend the book because it was a feel good book that still offered a slice of life plot. If you want to be left with a smile and chest of contentful happiness definitely give Wednesday Walk & Wags a read. I was fortunate enough to read Wednesday Walks & Wags by Melissa Storm, an ARC from Netgalley. This book is available August 25, 2020.

Bridget starts out almost paralyzed by her mourning. She is having trouble at her job working as a vet tech when there are dogs who have to be put down. She is in overdrive at her volunteer work at an animal shelter. She ended up adopting two dogs from there in an effort to get all the dogs adopted. Somehow, it doesn’t seem right to keep three dogs penned up all day in an apartment.Her only light is the jogging she does with her mysterious neighbor, Wesley, who has two big dogs in a tiny apartment. Then she finds out Wesley’s sad secret and has to decide whether to forgive him from hiding it from her.I just found it hard to warm up to any of these characters. And I kept thinking about those poor dogs stuck in their apartments.I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

All's going well until Wesley joins her friends and their love interests for a pot luck dinner and Bridget learns that Wesley has a secret, one he's reluctant to fully explain even after she knows the outlines. This is the second in the series but it will be fine as a standalone because it's really Bridget's story. She has some decisions to make- does she keep working as a vet tech, does she push for romance with Wesley, and so on. Know that it's clean romance with good characters. Those who read the first novel might remember that Bridget came off as immature albeit age appropriate. She's grown up. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. It's a pleasant read and don't miss the recipes!

I loved how organically their friendship progressed. Bridget's friendship group is a great example of what I feel we don't see enough of in literature - uplifting friendships. Their love for each other is so pure and unburdened by jealousy or competitiveness. Plus: it has dogs. Any book about dogs automatically has me wanting to read it.

    Another delightful visit with the women of the Sunday Potluck Club. I love that this group of women continue to support each other after all of their parent's deaths. This is more romance than the previous book with Hazel's wedding coming up and Amy & Bridget having possible beaus. The animals are always adorable and great characters in their own rights. A really good look at how grief is dealt with differently by everybody and you have to go at your own pace.

Looking forward to seeing more of the other women's journeys in future books.I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher and voluntarily chose to review it.

    Reading Wednesday Walks & Wags felt like visiting old friends. I already got to know most of the characters in the first book of this series, The Sunday Potluck Club by Melissa Storm. That made it easy to dive right into the story and start rooting for Bridget, the youngest member of the group. I felt like her relationship with Wesley developed on a more realistic timeline than that of Amy and Trent in the first book.

    I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.I read the first book in this series earlier this year and enjoyed it – it was sweet and touching. And I enjoyed this one too, it was fine but maybe a little dull. Wesley’s inability to communicate was very frustrating and Bridget’s inability to stand up for herself was confusing. She seemed like a strong overall character but she was pretty young and had some things she needed to work through.

It was sweet and romantic though, and I loved how the four friends really come together to support each other. I would recommend it.

    This is a nice clean romance involving a young woman who has just suffered the loss of her mother and an emotionally distant young man burdened with a secret. It a pleasant read about their reluctance to recognize their attraction and how they come to realize their future together. Along with this, there's the additional story of the importance of emotional support from friends and pets. , And, as a little bonus, there are a couple of interesting looking recipes that I'd like to try.

    4.5/5* **Thank you net galley and the publisher for an e arc of this book.**Though this is my first book by this author who is new to me, i definitely enjoyed this book. It had the mix of family, friendship, and dogs of course with a hint of romance and a bit of drama. Also each characters have their own special connection with one another that proves that the bonds with family is strong and the friendship made is strong as well.

    A sweet read with a lot of personality. I felt that the author tended to overexplain or overdescribe things just a little bit more than I prefer (in some cases that was a good thing, since I didn't feel lost for not having read the previous book, but in other cases it didn't seem to serve a purpose). But there was enough charm to more than make up for that!

    I really enjoyed Wednesday Walks & Wags. Being a huge animal lover myself, I was drawn by the title and cover. But once I started reading, I was captivated by Bridget and Wesley's slow burn romance. This book is a beautiful story of love, life, loss, grief, forgiveness, and friendship. And I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I really enjoyed Wednesday Walks & Wags. Being a huge animal lover myself, I was drawn by the title and cover.

    Can two broken souls, grieving for their past help each other find happiness, love and joy to life again? A heartwarming story about second chances, friendship, family and love. Bridget and Wesley will fill your heart with their interactions and how they fight their own demons together. Great book.
