Overview

AN AUNT searches for her lost nephew-and dooms her sister.

A MOM gambles a miracle will cure-and not kill-her child.

A DOG finds his true purpose-when he disobeys.

Animal behaviorist September Day has lost everything-husband murdered, career in ruins, confidence shot-and returns home with her trained Maine Coon cat Macy to Texas to recover. She's forced out of hibernation when her nephew Steven and his autism service dog Shadow disappear in a freak blizzard. When her sister trusts a maverick researcher's promise to help Steven, September has 24 hours to rescue them from a devastating medical experiment impacting millions of children, a deadly secret others will kill to protect. As September races the clock, the body count swells. Shadow does his good-dog duty but can't protect his boy. Finally September and Shadow forge a stormy partnership to rescue the missing and stop the nightmare cure. But can they also find the lost parts of themselves?

    Service Dog to the Rescue Amy Shojai is a certified animal beha

    Service Dog to the Rescue

    Amy Shojai is a certified animal behavior consultant and has written 26 Award-Winning Pet Care Books. She has also developed a dog training vocabulary game. She uses this knowledge to create her first book of fiction. Lost and Found is definitely a “Thriller with a BITE”.

    There are many interesting characters in the story – both human and animal. The main character, September, is an animal behavior specialist – just like the author. September’s relationship with her family is very complicated, her nephew Steven is autistic, and there are bad guys chasing her all over town. She also trains a young German Sheppard named Shadow to be a service dog to keep her nephew safe.

    The author did a great job in researching autism. She was able to describe how autistic children behave and how their parents can be desperate enough to pay an exorbitant amount of money for medication that will “cure” their children. My daughter is autistic and I know I would love to find a miracle drug for her. As I was reading the story, I could feel my stomach in knots as I feared for Steven’s safety when he was lost in a blizzard, even though he had Shadow with him.

    I enjoyed how the author anthropomorphizes the animals. There is Macy, September’s Maine coon cat, who loves to play laser tag, fetches toys on command and knows how to beg. We are also privy to Shadow’s thoughts as he tries to protect Steven, responds to his trainer and interacts with other humans. He teaches us that dogs "see" with scents, and can taste and smell fear. He is puzzled why people don’t shake off water instead of rubbing themselves dry. Shadow is a pivotal character in this story. He learns a lot about the human world and starts to make decisions that he knows might not be what is expected of him. Luckily for the humans, he is right.

    If you’re an animal lover and are looking for a good mystery book with some interesting characters, Lost and Found is the one for you.

    I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review

    I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This was a fast paced, suspenseful novel. It completely threw me for a loop and surpassed my expectations. Amy Shojai is a talented writer, I’d never have thought a book where two of the main characters were animals would make such an extraordinary novel but it does! September Day’s character development was steady throughout the novel, you could really grasp where she’s coming from. All in all a fantastic book, I’m so thrilled to have had the opportunity to read it. This will be another one of my favorite novels for 2012!

    This is one of the most unique story lines I have read in a whil

    This is one of the most unique story lines I have read in a while. Besides being a riveting story, the inclusion of the German Shepard, Shadow, as a character in the novel is truly fascinating. To follow along in the dog's head and see his need to please, obey, take care and understand is a wonderful twist that brought me into the story quickly.

    As the story quickly progresses, the growing suspense with the continuing rise of danger and deaths makes it impossible to stop turning the pages. The story is electrifying and tantalizing and will thrill every dog loving, mystery addicted reader. The ending was worth turning every page (even a virtual page).

    I look forward to reading more great stories by Amy Shojai if this is any indication of what is to come.

    Great read!

    This book is a real "page turner"! Well written and exciting, it deals knowledgeably w/struggles of autism and creates a character in Shadow, a young German Shepherd in training to be an autism assistance dog. This is the perfect book for a dog lover who enjoys a great mystery!!
