Praise for The Dog Year

"The story of a woman who had everything, lost everything, and now wants to shoplift the rest."--Jacquelyn Mitchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean"Few authors are funnier or more sympathetic than Ann Garvin, and few heroines [are] more in need of comic relief and sympathy than Dr. Lucy Peterman. The Dog Year is a kind, gentle, honest look at a woman whose life has come apart and a survivor who puts it all back together."--Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of author of A Land More Kind than Home and This Dark Road to Mercy"Hilarious, insightful, and heartbreaking... A deeply intimate story of tragedy and recovery that readers and book clubs will treasure."--Matt Bondurant, author of The Night Swimmer and The Wettest County in the World

Praise for Ann Garvin and On Maggie's Watch

"Compelling . . . A perfect fit for suburban reading groups."--Booklist

"On Maggie's Watch shows how we thrive, how we go on, in a life that's neither perfect nor fair. [Garvin] writes with humor and compassion so well; just when I'd feel about to cry the scene would twist and I'd laugh out loud. She has such a deep understanding for her flawed and trying-to-get better characters; she obviously loves them, and so do we."--Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of Little Night
