What a touching novel! The characters, the adorable pet friends

What a touching novel! The characters, the adorable pet friends; a fantastic story line. Give it a try because you won't be able to put it down.

Charming but very predictable



If you do not mind your fiction utterly predictable and maudlin at times, this is a good past-time read. I am a passionate animal lover/animal rights person, so these types of rather charming and lightweight reads are always a pleasant diversion. However, I was a bit disappointed in the predictability of this text. I was hoping for something a bit more substantial. In addition, Trout successfully creates a protagonist who is so cold/clinical and generally unlikeable for big chunks of the book it becomes hard to warm up to him when the time finally comes. The 'big reveal' behind his estranged father falls flat and plays out as rather maudlin. The ending is kind of eye-rolling. BUT all that being said, the book reads quickly and at the end is an enjoyable, rainy-afternoon read. If the people aren't all that interesting, the animals are--terrific cat/dog personalities.

    Dr. Cyrus Mills has had some personal issues in Charleston, SC, so he heads up north to Vermont to help restore his father's veterinary practice.  He has the intentions of selling the practice for some extra cash flow and escaping back down south.  But the reader knows that this isn't where the story will end and in between is a small town and some sweet pets and interesting owners.
