When firefighter Connor Mahoney decides to run for mayor, he's confident of victory because of his brilliant idea to put Frank, a local canine hero who saved a drowning child, on the ticket with him. Then Connor gets some unwanted help from the Dogmothers, who think a pretty new arrival from Washington DC would make the perfect campaign manager for their highly-eligible bachelor grandson. But no matter how much Connor likes the idea of working with the gorgeous Sadie Hartman, she's doing her best to keep him at arm's length.
Disillusioned by politics after working in DC, Sadie doesn’t want the job, no matter how smoking hot the sexy firefighter is or how much his sweet grannies push. But then she learns that the race has another candidate – a man who was instrumental in wrecking Sadie’s family. Uncertain the “dog and firefighter” can win, she launches her own campaign to be mayor of Bitter Bark.
But Connor and Sadie are both in for a big surprise when a two-hundred year old law is unearthed to upend the entire election. Then, the only way for Sadie or Connor to save the town from a terrible mayor is to join forces in a way no one is expecting. As Sadie and Connor discover that the best part of running against each other is literally being against each other, it doesn't take long to figure out that sometimes winning the race means losing your heart.
Connor and Sadie have a past although one of them doesn't remember that history. Connor beat Sadie in a high school election and now they're both on the ballot for mayor in Bitter Bark in a effort to stop another candidate they both don't like and would be horrible for the town. Connor and his new dog Frank join up with Sadie to help each other. Things get a little intense when they have to get engaged to stay in the running. Loved this book. It starts slow but building up to a quick a startling ending. I'm not talking about the mayor race either. I loved watching Connor and Sadie get to know each other and of course the animals steal the show. All of Connor's huge family add a lot of fun to the mix as always. a solid fun and exciting story.
