This HaBO comes from Stephanie, who has been searching for ages for this book:
Here’s a HaBO that’s bugged me for years:
The novel’s main character moves to a small town on an island or near the ocean.
She rescues a dog that turns out to be pregnant and the veterinarian asks if she wants him to abort the puppies. She says no and I think ends up dating the vet, who (I think) has a kid.
I’m going to assume this is a contemporary romance or possibly women’s fiction, but I’m not certain.
