Juliet's been in hiding. From her family, from her broken life, but most of all from the fact that Ben's not around anymore. Her mother Diane has run out of advice. But then she insists Juliet looks after her elderly Labrador and it becomes apparent that Coco the dog might actually be the one who can rescue her daughter. Especially when it leads to her walking dogs for a few other locals too, including a spaniel, Damson, who belongs to a very attractive man. Before she knows it, Juliet realizes she has somehow become the town's unofficial pet-sitter. A job which makes her privy to the lives and secrets of everyone whose animals she's caring for.
