Love in the Headlines by Penny Zeller

Love in the Headlines

Can paper and paw prints draw these two nemeses together?

All Carleigh Adams wants is a relaxing evening. But Sullivan Theodore IV, her wayward Shih Tzu, has other plans. After escaping from home, Sullivan Theodore unlawfully enters what Carleigh assumes is a stranger’s house via a doggy door. Much to Carleigh’s horror, it is actually the home of her coworker and nemesis, Trey “The Irritating” Montgomery.

Trey Montgomery has had to work with “Quirky Carleigh,” his top competitor for the best articles at The Oakville Daily, for the past two years. It’s safe to say that she and her criminally-minded pet are his adversaries. Trey’s attempts to keep his distance from her are demolished when their boss thrusts them together as The Oakville Daily Duo, forcing them to work as a team on every. Single. Article.

Petty crimes and crazy shenanigans in Oakville soon draw Carleigh and Trey into doubling as detectives. When dogs, including their own pets, begin to mysteriously disappear, Carleigh and Trey join forces to uncover the culprit. As they work to report the daily news and solve the crimes in Oakville, can these two stubborn reporters find love in the headlines?

Faith, plentiful humor, and tender romance round out the latest Christian contemporary romance novel by Author Penny Zeller.


This book is so much fun, and there's even a mystery if you're wanting to solve a crime! Who would have believed that the small town of Oakville would experience a crime wave involving adorable dogs and a cunning dognapper? Certainly front page news but there may be some competition between the two reporters assigned to the case! 

Author Penny Zeller displays her talent for writing laugh-out-loud scenes, characters that you want for friends, and a romance just waiting to happen. Carleigh and Trey don't like each other and they don't want to work together but are they really protesting too much? Can their antagonism turn into a partnership that they don't want to end? Will being dubbed The Oakville Daily Duo' convince them to rethink their feelings?

Love in the Headlines is a delightful contemporary romance for all who are looking for a fast, clean read! Zeller is known for her historical fiction but I believe she's found another niche---writing romcoms and cozy mysteries!

I voluntarily accepted a digital copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
