Rescue Me

Rescue Me

Even when you’ve given up on love, it will still rescue you…

Margot and Will cross paths at the local dog rescue centre where – after a series of misunderstandings and a lot of consternation – they agree to foster Blossom (a gentle Staffy with a giant head, soft, floppy ears and kohl-rimmed brown eyes) together: one week on, one week off.

Margot and Will don’t get off to the best of starts: he thinks Margot is demanding and needy and Just So Much. And she thinks Will is emotionally unavailable, slightly brittle and very mistrustful. They’re both right. But the more they bicker, the worse Blossom behaves, and they realise they have to form some sort of truce in order to “co-pawrent” her together.

It’s almost as if Blossom has plans of her own . . .

Marian Keyes
I cannot remember the last time I was this emotionally invested in - or affected by - a book. Rescue Me will steal your heart if you let it - and you REALLY need to let it because it Just. Makes. Life. Better. A truly special, unforgettable book
Cressida McLaughlin
Warm, witty, moving, tender, uplifting and everything the world needs right now
Tammy Cohen
As an extremely enthusiastic dog person and romcom fan, I felt like this wonderful book was written specifically for me! It was sweet, insightful, sensitive and completely lovely. It was delightfully accurate in its portrayal of love - both for rescue dogs and people. I absolutely loved it and was caught smiling to myself the whole way through reading it. As someone who's written about the relationship between dogs and humans (and who loves her Shih Tzu, Bert, more than anything), this book absolutely spoke to me. Gorgeous
Kate Leaver
Rescue Me will steal your heart. Uplifting, tender, and heartwarming, this is one of the loveliest books I've read all year
Louise O'Neill
I absolutely adored everything about this book. No one writes such brilliantly original and flawed, many layered characters the way Sarra Manning does. I completely fell in love with Margot and Will and of course Madam Blossom. It was everything I hoped for and more
Jules Wake
What a vivid, exuberant, joyful read - I felt my spirits lift with every page. Big-hearted, funny, wise and uplifting, this is the book everyone needs this year
Iona Grey
I adored reading this beautifully written, funny and endearing rom com
Kate Eberlen
Manning's winning story is the perfect piece of escapism with one eye on snappy dialogue and another on the things that make us whole again
Stylist
Guaranteed to brighten any gloomy day . . . warm and funny
Prima
Romance and dogs - what's not to love? This uplifting love story is full of humour and the characters are wonderful
Good Housekeeping
A delightful tale of loneliness, love and connection all pulled together by a quite wonderful rescue Staffie
Sarah Hughes, i News
Give me a love story about a rescue dog . . . and I will do nothing until I finish the book while sobbing into my dog's fur. Blossom's personality was captured so perfectly, in a way that only true dog people will understand.
