nicoleGalland_StepdogWhat is the difference between puppy love and dogged devotion? Read for yourself in Nicole’s refreshing and hilarious first contemporary novel.

When Irishman Rory O’Connor’s performance visa runs out on the cusp of his big Hollywood break, his new flame, Sara, insists that he marry her to get a green card. In a matter of weeks they’ve gone from being friendly acquaintances to a live-in couple, and it’s all grand . . . except for Sara’s dog, Cody, a gift from Sara’s ex.

“A lovely, funny novel about a typical romance, complete with immigration bureaucrats, psychopathic exes, articulate biker gangs, rat poison, literal cliffhangers, and the most adorable dog since Benji. You know, just like your relationship.”
– Peter Sagal, Host, NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!
