When her cuddly canine companion Boomer is diagnosed with a rare heart condition, Jennifer Westbrook decides to take Boomer on the greatest road trip of his life. But when she tries to sneak Boomer into a NASCAR press box - disguised as her seeing-eye dog - Jennifer's cover is blown by a curious, but very cute reporter named Nathan Koslow. Boomer takes an instant shine to Nathan, unlike the other men in Jennifer's life. When the charming journalist asks to join them on their journey, she can't say no. But when she learns that someone has created a website called Boomer's Bucket List - and it's gone totally viral - the trip takes a wildly unexpected turn for Jennifer, Nathan, and the dog who brought them together.
Boomers Bucket list isn't a literary masterpiece but it is a thoroughly enjoyable tale. Once I started listening to it I couldn't stop. I'm sure anyone who's had a dog as a best friend will relate to a lot of the sentiment in this book. Once I'd finished it my husband listened to it and he also thoroughly enjoyed the story. It's like a good Sunday afternoon movie......in fact I'm sure if it isn't already, it will be one day!

I am fairly new to Audible and this is the second book I listened to on app. It was easy to follow and heart-warming.

Along with it being a a beautiful story about a girl and her canine companion, it surprisingly turns into a beautiful love story as well.

Any additional comments?
I listened to this book in 4 days. It was a light book to listen to while driving to work and I found myself sitting in my car a few extra minutes in-between drives because this book was hard to put down. I was surprised at how fast I got through it, but at the same time, I didn't want it to end.
