Daniel Kilcannon, the veterinarian known as the Dogfather, has been widowed for four years. He's spent the time running the largest canine rescue and training facility in North Carolina and pulling some strings to make sure each of his six grown children find a love like the one he lost when his beloved Annie died.
But as the years slip by, Daniel's vow to never love again is starting to make him restless. When a woman who was pivotal to his past arrives in Bitter Bark, he wonders if her appearance is coincidence or the guiding hand of his dearly departed wife...but the truth is neither. She's about to change his life again in ways he could never have imagined. And Daniel isn't sure if his heart -- or his family -- will ever recover from the impact.
Like every other book in this popular series, the cover of Old Dog New Tricks was shot at Alaqua Animal Refuge in the author’s home state of Florida using only rescue dogs (and local guys) on the covers. A portion of book sales is donated to Alaqua to save animals and help them find forever homes.
About 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!

Old Dog New Tricks is the latest release in the Dogfather series from Roxanne St. Claire and all I can say is it was totally worth the wait! I've wanted Daniel Kilcannon's book from the moment we met him in the very first book and I adored it from start to finish. While I feel like the woman who is Daniel’s second chance at love after the death of his beloved Annie shouldn’t have surprised me; I found myself completely shocked.
This story was full of surprises, pulled out every single emotion, and gave me hope for finding love again. I absolutely couldn't put this book down once I started reading it, and loved every single minute of this story. Roxanne St. Claire gives her readers another story filled with laughter and tears, both happy and sad, along with many happy sighs. I highly recommend having a box of tissues handy while reading this beautiful story.
The Dogfather series of books is one of my favorite series ever from Roxanne St. Claire and I can't recommend the entire series of books enough. I've loved watching each of Daniel's children find their happily ever after. I loved we were introduced to so many new characters in Old Dog New Tricks, and will hopefully get many more books featuring the Kilcannon family and friends. I read Old Dog New Tricks as fast as I could the first time, and now plan to re-read it and savor each and every moment.
