Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts Paperback
by Lucy Dillon
ROMANTIC NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2010. When the abandoned strays from a local dogs' home are matched with brand new owners, it turns out it might not just be the dogs who need rescuing. Rachel's aunt has left her a house, a Border Collie and, despite knowing nothing about dogs, a crowded kennel.
But since her life has collapsed she's not sure she can deal with any more lost souls. Zoe's ex-husband has given their children a puppy. The kids are in love, but she's the one stuck training Toffee the impossible Labrador.
She's nearly at the end of her tether - until Toffee leads her to a handsome doctor ...Meanwhile Natalie and Johnny's marriage hasn't been easy since they started trying for a baby.
But is a fridge-raiding, sofa-stealing Basset hound like Bertie really the child substitute they're looking for?
As the new owners' paths cross on the town's dog-walking circuits, their lives become interwoven. And they - and their dogs - learn some important lessons about loyalty, companionship and unconditional love ...

Just loved this book. A perfect book.for a cold, grey winter evening. A real feel-good book.

This story touched me so deeply and had so many funny and sad moments, that this is definetly a keeper. I think the star of the story was Bertie the Bassett dog which had me in stitches, with his love of human company and food, i.e. bacon sandwiches.!
Review by Laurie.Schultz
This is a great book. It intertwines the lives of many people, along with the dogs that they "save". It is light but just what I needed after the last two books I read. I enjoyed it immensely.
