What could be more joyous than a Kilcannon Christmas? But for Daniel Kilcannon, the man they call “The Dogfather,” this holiday season is anything but happy. It’s been three years since he’s lost his wife and though his family is growing – thanks to his matchmaking efforts – he still dreads the day his dearly departed wife used to love so much. Determined to make Christmas Eve festive and fun, he puts his sadness aside for the family and pretends everything is normal…until it’s not.

When a recently rescued puppy goes missing on Waterford Farm, all celebrations come to a halt. The entire family, from Gramma Finnie down to the youngest Kilcannon and their cousins, is enlisted on the search. Before they can continue the old Irish tradition of putting a candle in the window to welcome strangers, they must find little Jack Frost…and nothing short of a Christmas miracle can make that happen. 

The Dogfather Series
Daniel Kilcannon is known as "The Dogfather" for a reason. It's not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they'll tell you that their father's nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks...and he'll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

Liza's Review:

The Dogfather series is one of my favorite ever from Roxanne St. Claire. It has family, sexy men, smart women, laugh out loud humor, as well as pulling so many other emotions from me. Santa Paws is Coming to Town is the perfect Christmas gift for fans of the series.

I love getting to spend time with Daniel Kilcannon, The Dogfather himself, and he gets lots of page time in Santa Paws is Coming to Town. I love how much he still loves and misses his wife Annie, even as he tries to hide it from his family. I love that his mom, Gramma Finnie calls him out at the very beginning about his sadness and his whole family works to help him find a reason to be happy this year. I both laughed and cried reading this short story and enjoyed each and every minute of my reading. We got to reconnect with the Kilcannon kids and grandkids and even got to meet Daniel's sister and her family.

Santa Paws is Coming to Town is a heartwarming story that will grab you from the very first page. I highly recommend reading the first 3 books in the series first to better understand the dynamics of the family, and promise you will be hooked from the very first book. Santa Paws is Coming to Town is another winner from Rocki and I can't wait to re-read it over the holidays.
