I am philosophically opposed to giving any book 5 stars, but I can find nothing "wrong" with this. I loved the characters and was perfectly happy to stay up til 3 am finding out what happened to them all.
I hope this makes it to the big screen.
The recent 'Shady Lady' also has regular people characters, but somehow they're a little too ordinary. Mack and Cady manage to be normal but still transcend the ordinary enough to be belivable as hero and heroine.
Then, about halfway through the book, it really picked up and I enjoyed it a lot. It became much more of a page-turner after that.
I thought Sheehan's writing was just OK. Nothing spectacular, but it wasn't bad either. Like I said, I had trouble with the characters at first, but eventually fell to love them. And of course, she did a great job making the reader fall in love with the dog. I would like to have read more about the dog and things that he did.
Overall, this was just an average book. I would not necessarily recommend it to someone out of the blue, but I also would not flat-out discourage them from reading it.
When Rocky (short for Roxanne) takes the job of animal control officer, she gets involved with a lovable dog who begins to melt her frozen heart. Rocky becomes embroiled in a young girl's silent agony, a new friend's personal challenges, and the mystery that could endanger her own life.
I absolutely devoured this book from start to finish. The characters were so real, the writing precise, and the story riveting. In a couple of chapters, Sheehan writes from the dog's perspective, delivering a new insight into the human-canine friendship.
After finishing this book at 2 a.m., I wrote the author and begged her to continue the journey of these characters (and she responded that she is considering it). Then I ordered three more copies to pass along to a dog lover, a mystery fan, and a hopeless romantic. They will each love "Lost and Found" because each will "find" something to make them smile.
