Summary:
When Cody, a troubled fourteen-year-old, witnesses a murder, she tells no one. But it begins a spiral for her from which she cannot escape. Her worried mother Skye thinks a change of scene is just what her introverted, withdrawn daughter needs and since her dream has always been to own an inn, she jumps at the chance to buy a dilapidated bed & breakfast in the Berkshires. But being an innkeeper is harder than it seems and Cody still seems to fall in with the wrong crowd. When Adam March arrives as the inn's only guest, he is accompanied by his rescued pit bull, Chance, a dog who has saved Adam in more ways than one. Cody and Chance begin a wary bond and soon, Adam finds another rescue who needs the kind of attention he gave Chance years ago. With Adam and Skye beginning a tentative relationship and Chance showing Cody how to trust again, this new-found family seems to be on the brink of second chances. But soon, a murderer is closing in -- someone hiding in plain sight, and threatening everything and everyone -- even Cody's life.

Booklist Review

The sequel to One Good Dog (2010) finds Adam March, whose life was turned around by a mistreated but lovable pit bull named Chance, mourning the death of his wife, Gina. Adam's work as a fundraising consultant brings him to the Berkshires, where he meets single-mom Skye, who has recently purchased a bed-and-breakfast that she's renovating, and her sullen 14-year-old daughter, Cody. Cody has been pulling away from her mother since the death of her father, Randy, a small-time drug dealer, but what Skye doesn't know is that Cody is keeping a terrible secret: she saw the face of the man who gunned Randy down. As Cody struggles with several bullies and finds refuge at the Artists Collaborative, where Adam is consulting, Adam and Skye form a friendship. Even Chance finds a new friend when Adam and Cody save a young man from an overdose and Adam decides to foster the young man's pit bull. Animal lovers will find much to enjoy in this sweet story of redemption, second chances, and healing.--Huntley, Kristine Copyright 2017 Booklist
