Fuzzy Logic (Alpine Grove, #2) by Susan C. Daffron



The author sent me a copy of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.

My rating:  4.2  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

Librarian Jan Carpenter likes things just so. Nestled in her tidy little cottage on the outskirts of the small hamlet of Alpine Grove, she enjoys her quiet life with her friendly, rotund black lab, Rosa.

Jan’s orderly life is turned upside down when she attends her mother’s latest wedding in San Diego. (Number six…or maybe seven, but who’s counting?) There, Jan encounters Michael Lawson, the obnoxious neighbor kid from twenty years ago. He’s still irritating, but not as annoying as his dog who has a habit of eating…everything. The last thing Jan wants to do is risk heartache on a vacation fling with a smooth-talking serial dater, even if he is sinfully gorgeous and finds her unusual ability to remember obscure facts fascinating.

Amidst wardrobe destruction, canine digestive indiscretions, and episodes of extreme mortification, Jan’s desire to avoid drama may put the brakes on her fiery attraction to Michael. But maybe being cautious and responsible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Note: Fuzzy Logic is a full-length novel (300 pages/80,000 words) that is Book #2 of the Alpine Grove Romantic Comedies. It’s a feel-good novel that appeals to people who enjoy a little light romance and quirky animal stories.


Genre:  Romantic comedy



Hearing a panting sound above the noise of the ocean, she looked up from the sorry state of her wardrobe to find a man running toward her. He bent over in exhaustion, putting his hands on his knees. With a great exhale of breath, he asked, “Did you see a furry white dog go by here?”

Jan pulled the bobby pins out of her mouth. “Yes. I’m surveying the damage now. And I could have been seriously hurt.”

“Sorry about that. She really likes to run. And she likes people. Sometimes those two things conflict.”


My Opinion

It is true:  This is normally not my genre.  However, I really liked the story’s evolution right from the start. I was unable to put my eReader down.  In this second book of the Alpine Grove Romantic Comedy series as well, the human and the canine characters are realistic and fit perfectly into the plot. Kat, Joel, and Alpine Grove are the important basic characters; librarian Jan and her new step-brother Michael and their dogs are the lead characters. Jan’s mother marries her former neighbour who is also Michael’s father. The perfect basis for some hilarious situations. No. I won’t tell you more. This would spoil the fun for your reading it yourself.

Fuzzy Logic is another great feel-good novel by Susan C. Daffron. There are certainly some serious situations in need to be solved, they are expertly handled by the author who knows her craft well. Fuzzy Logic is a very fine and fast read.

A must read for all those who enjoy a little romance, respect nature. like hilarious situations.

I am looking forward to reading more of Kat’s and Joel’s life in Alpine Grove.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to do the review, Karen! I have a Samoyed so I agree that the sam on the cover is adorable. I’m totally biased though–I love fluffy white dogs 🙂

    • It was a pleasure to read and review, Susan. 🙂
      Your love and knowledge of dogs shows. Your canine characters are as believable as your human characters. And Samoyeds are gorgeous…

    • The canine characters are awesome, Rosie. I like believable characters – and Fuzzy Logic keeps its promise to be a feel-good novel.

    • I am admittedly not that much into RC. Susan Daffron’s books comprise hilarity and lots of dogs, some cats, and a little romance – making for very entertaining reads.
