Women's fiction can run the gamut between romance, mystery, memoir and more.
First is the story of a single woman's life in New York with her dog in "You Tell Your Dog First" by Alison Pace.
The author of several books, Pace though her life was complete that is until she got Carlie, a West Highland White terrier. Pace grew up around dogs and her mother still had plenty of dogs, but she never wanted one, trying to stave off the urge by working with dogs (in a failed attempt but hilarious story). But when she finally got Carlie, she also got a new dog-friendly apartment, where she met the other doggie residents as well as her neighbors. Pace met her therapist through her dog, and talks about how she knew it wasn't going to work with her boyfriend because of her dog.
Anyone who is a dog lover will definitely love this book, a sort of Carrie Bradshaw adopts a dog story, and get a dog's eye view of New York.
