‘HAPPILY WHATEVER AFTER‘ by STEWART LEWIS
TEASER TUESDAY EXTRACT
‘DOODLES AND DITTIES‘
“Sammy inhaled his two treats, then plopped down on his doggy bed in a slump of defeat. As I was leaving, I noticed Kevin’s bedroom door was slightly ajar. It squeaked a little as I opened it farther, and I turned back to see Sammy looking at me from the living room, his expression saying, who’s the stalker now?
Everything looked normal in the room, except one thing I couldn’t miss. There was a giant tapestry on the wall, and I could see it was covering something behind it. I peeled it back slowly, expecting to see childish artwork, or maybe just stains, but it was a massive, intricate doodle drawing, right on the wall. A million tiny twists of line. It was mesmerizing. I stepped back and took it all in. I could see giraffes and swans, spider webs and fern leaves, open hands and screaming faces. I’m not sure how long I stared at it, but eventually Sammy barked from the hallway, as if to say, that’s enough, get out of his room now. I took a picture of it on my phone, quickly tacked the tapestry back up, and shuffled out the door, but not before ruffling Sammy’s ears, saying, “You’re a good boy. If you know what’s best for you, don’t you dare tell Kevin I was in his room.”

My review is currently scheduled for 16th August 2020
A dark comedy about putting yourself in unexpected places, reaching for your dreams, and believing in second chances.
Thirtysomething Page was content with her life in New York City—until it went to the dogs. Unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend of four years and fired from her art gallery job in the same week, she flees to Washington, DC, and moves in with her big brother. She hopes the new setting and familial comfort will help her finally find her bearings. What Page finds instead is an unlikely refuge: a park for the neighborhood’s poshest pooches, and a quirky pack of companionable dog-run regulars who become fast friends.
Both four-legged and two-, these new allies offer Page a world of possibilities. The woman who hit rock bottom now has dreams: of having her own business, getting her own place, and even wilder ones about the ruggedly handsome owner of a vineyard and two equally fetching Bernese mountain dogs.
Unleashed from all that once held her back, Page finds everything might be falling into place. But just when she thinks her life is headed in the right direction, the road takes a sharp turn to show her just how unpredictable second chances can be. Will Page get her happily ever after? Is there even such a thing?
Witty, smartly funny, and modernly romantic, Happily Whatever After shows us all that sometimes imperfect can still be good enough.
