When their beloved pets are threatened, a group of ordinary New Yorkers find surprising new connections.

For many in Manhattan, home means a loving animal, the steadfast presence that shares a life, hears a secret, heals a hurt, claims the heart.

That’s how it is for Rosa Bassetti, who has no better friend than her arthritic Poodle. Rosa’s neighbor, Eileen Hargan, feels the same about her Boston Terrier. Strangers at first, the two become friends as they meet while walking their dogs, come sun, rain, or snow.

Their routine is shattered when Eileen receives a note demanding money, threatening her dog if she doesn’t pay. A dangerous criminal? Cruel prankster? Rosa is determined to find out.

Set amid Manhattan’s aging brownstones, tree-lined streets and pre-war buildings, Connections brings together an intriguing cast of New Yorkers—a same-sex couple, a tough social worker finding love, a lonely office manager—who, through their love for animals, join forces against a terrifying menace.

Jacqueline Wein enjoyed a long and hectic career in a New York City advertising agency and its several incarnations. She edited copy, served as proofreader and unassailable office grammarian, organized forums for professional organizations, and edited two business books for their authors. Outside the office, she wrote a book of her own, Roommate, a suspense novel published by Crown.

Now retired, Jacqueline has written a story about another kind of roommate . . . the animals who share our lives, bond with us in intense, intimate ways, and nudge us into relationships.

The beloved dog who took her into the streets, shops, and sidewalk gossip exchanges of her Manhattan neighborhood many years ago gave her some background for this book.

She now splits her time between New York City and Florida, accompanied by her beautiful cat Asia.
