“Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

I love the title of this book "Hope in Every Raindrop" and the running theme of it throughout the book.  I also loved the dogs in this book and how they played a large roll in the life and learning of the characters.

Katie is taking a risk for something that she loves.  She wants to write a meaningful story and she is willing to work hard for it, even if she is frustrated by the circumstances.  I admired her drive and her love for the written word.  She was both strong and vulnerable and a connection to her was easy to make.

Kyle was a bit of an enigma throughout the whole book.  I'm not sure what Katie saw in him other than his devotion to the dogs.  The emotional connection was lacking a bit for me but the story was still a good one and I really enjoyed reading it.

Content:  Mild swearing and sex behind closed doors between an unmarried couple.  No description, but you know it happened.
