THE PATRON SAINT OF LOST DOGS - BOOK ONE (NICK TROUT)
Hyperion||February 12, 2013|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-1-4013-1088-2
Dr. Cyrus Mills returns to his hometown after inheriting his father's failing veterinary practice. Cyrus intends to sell the practice and get out of town as fast as he can, but when his first patient - a down on her luck golden retriever named Frieda Fuzzypaws - wags her way through the door, life suddenly gets complicated.
With the help of a black Labrador gifted in the art of swallowing underwear, a Persian cat determined to expose her owner's lover as a gold digger, and the allure of a feisty, pretty waitress from the local diner, Cyrus gets caught up in a new community and its endearing residents, both human and animal. Sensing he may have misjudged the past, he begins to realize it's not just his patients that need healing.
THE PATRON SAINT OF LOST DOGS is a winsome tale of new beginnings, forgiveness, and the joy of finding your way home.
I laughed and shook my head through this book as I couldn't believe the antics that went on. Poor Dr. Mills has his hands full, not just with his four-legged friends but also their two-legged owners. Trying to keep up with everything going on proves at times to be too much for poor old Doc Mills but he somehow manages to gallantly push through to a conclusion to each problem he faces. THE PATRON SAINT OF DOGS is Book One. The follow-up book to this is titled: "Dog Gone, Back Soon" which I'll be reading next. Great book for people of all ages but teens especially would love this.
