Stylist Jess Champlin doesn’t see eye-to-eye on most things with her well-known journalist ex-husband, Sebastian Hess, except when it comes to their dog, Baxter. When Baxter saves a toddler from being hit by a truck, her neighbor’s video of the heroics goes viral. Baxter becomes a local celebrity. Now Jess and Sebastian are in each other’s lives again, even though Jess is with someone new. But is it really over between these former lovers? (MIRA, Aug., 352 pp., $7.99)
