Bedtime for Bonsai was well written (and well edited) with a reasonably plausible story line.
I would categorize it as a sweet romance. I don't recall any cussing of significance. There were 2, not overly descriptive sex scenes; but one of them did occur between 2 for all intents and purposes strangers and took place after hours on top of a store display case (and there ends my public service announcement).

The reason I rated the book as just "OK" has solely to do with personal preference and quirks...I did not like the heroine...like not at all. The story opens with the heroine Penelope trying to rekindle a romance with her ex. husband Glenn. Her ex. husband who told her he never wanted to have children, then cheated on her, then after they divorced married someone else (who may or may not have been the other woman - it's not clear) and promptly gets the someone else (now his second ex. wife) pregnant and embraces (Okay wrong word) participates in fatherhood. THIS is the man who's bushes she is skulking around in because she wants him back. Only 4 words come to mind...and they would be "sad, pathetic, desperate, loser".

However before Penelope can once again land the catch that is Glenn, she is distracted by the new guy in town. Dylan Mersey, pottery artist and ex.con; opens up a shop directly across from Penelope's pen shop. At first Penelope isn't sure about Dylan because of his sordid past and the fact that they obviously don't run in the same social circles...but that's OK...she decides she can simply mold him into a handsomer, less despicable version of Glenn.

Dylan is a really decent guy (which sadly in the land of romance fiction...isn't my type). He's sweet, although harboring some self esteem issues. He had a tough childhood and he did get involved with fencing stolen merchandise; but really he went to jail taking the rap to save his flighty, flower child, head in the clouds mom from drug charges.

Penelope and Dylan are brought together by the plot device which is Penelope's new puppy named Mr. Darcy or Bonsai depending upon who you talk to. As a head over heels dog lover, I should have appreciated this little tidbit...but it only made me more annoyed with Penelope. She was an irresponsible dog owner with no clue about training and I wouldn't trust her with my pet hamster.

There is obviously a HEA; and in all fairness Pen does show some emotional growth by the story's end.

Puppies are adorable, but they’re a giant pain in the butt. Anyone who’s ever had a 10 week old puppy running around their house knows this. They poop, they get underfoot, they scoff their food until they throw up. They chew on everything.

Another talent puppies have is the ability to engineer a great escape to explore the world. Penelope Porter’s new puppy is a little Havanese bundle of fur named Mr. Darcy, and he’s discovered a way to get into the shop across the road. Newly divorced, Penelope is still trying to find her way in the world as a single woman. Luckily she has a circle of friends, all fellow dog-lovers, to rely on. Then she meets Dylan Mersey.

After years of trouble, Dylan Mersey is trying to get his life back on track. Starting with opening a pottery gallery/shop to display his (and his mother’s) work, he’s trying had to stay out of trouble. Unfortunately he can’t quite seem to manage it as he becomes entangled with his old friends, his new friends and the adorable little puppy that belongs to the woman across the street.

It was the cover that drew me to this book before I realised it was part of a larger story, but that didn’t matter. GUYS & DOGS is one of those series you can pick up and put down in any order. BEDTIME FOR BONSAI falls into the light-and-fluffy category. Fun and funny, with instantly likeable characters and, of course, puppies. The perfect book for a wine-and-cheese Sunday afternoon.

STORY BRIEF:
Penelope is divorced and has a store selling expensive pens. She wanted a baby but her ex-husband Glenn didn't. He married someone else and got divorced again. Penelope asks Glenn if they can start seeing each other. He agrees. Meanwhile Dylan has just moved to town. His store is across the street from Penelope's. Penelope and Dylan are drawn to each other, but Dylan is resisting the attraction. Penelope's puppy frequently runs over to Dylan's shop which keeps bringing them together. Pinky is a criminal/acquaintance from Dylan's past. Pinky claims Dylan owes him a favor and wants Dylan to hold and deliver some stolen property. Dylan doesn't want to but is being forced to. He wanted a fresh start in life, and this could send him back to jail.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
When I finished the book I thought that was nice, it was pleasant. It didn't surprise or delight me as much as other romance novels have, but it was ok. Think of it as a typical contemporary romance novel. I loved Dylan's story and was deeply sympathetic to his plight. He grew up taking care of his naïve, childlike mother, first a drug addict and later an alcoholic. Dylan's life was full of hard knocks, but he makes it through and ends up with a great girl.

To avoid a spoiler, I won't give details, but I did not like a certain plot twist. At the end of the book, we learn something unexpected about what Pinky was doing with Dylan. Pinky was keeping a secret which could have put Dylan in jail again. The secret was not necessary. Pinky and Dylan could have done something needed without the risk of jail. I think the author was trying to create interesting conflict, but I wish she would have used something different.

This book is now my all-time favorite! I can't say one negative thing about it. Penelope and Dylan were perfect as the H/h. Penelope's friends were great as was Mr. Darcy/Bonsai! The ending threw me; totally unexpected but just perfect! The only bad thing was....it ended.

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone! A definite must read.
