Book Description:

When Dr. Cyrus Mills returned home after inheriting his estranged father’s veterinary practice, The Bedside Manor for Sick Animals, the last thing he wanted was to stay in Eden Falls, Vermont, a moment longer than absolutely necessary.  However, the previously reclusive veterinarypathologist, quickly found that he actually enjoyed treating animals and getting to know the eccentric residents of the tiny provincial town—especially an alluring waitress named Amy.

So Cyrus is now determined to make Bedside Manor thrive.  Not an easy goal, given that Healthy Paws, the national veterinary chain across town, will stop at nothing to crush its mom-and-pop competitor.  And the rival vet practice isn’t Cyrus’ only competition.  A handsome stranger shows up out of nowhere who clearly has a mysterious past with Amy.  To top it off, Cyrus finds himself the guardian of a very unique orphaned dog and smack in the middle of serious small town drama.

This charming sequel to The Patron Saint of Lost Dog, is a wild and delightful ride through one jam- packed week – where Cyrus must figure out how to outsmart the evil veterinary conglomerate, win back Amy’s heart, solve several tricky veterinary cases, find a home for an orphaned dog, and detangle himself from an absurd case of mistaken identity.  DOG GONE, BACK SOON brims with Nick Trout’s trademark humor, charm, and captivating animal stories, and is proof that all dogs, lost or not, on four feet or two, deserve a second chance.

"Dog Gone, Back Soon" is the second book in the series. I didn't have the pleasure of reading the first book and had absolutely no problems in following the storyline at all. A truly entertaining and endearing story filled with laughter, tears, romance and a bit of mystery along with great characters (human and non-human alike).  A nice fast read that I highly recommend to all.

I give "Dog Gone, Back Soon" a 5 star rating.
