Book Review: The Lost Dog by Tricia O'Malley

My human is writing this review since I am enthralled in my reading of the Book of Revelation, ESV Translation.  And, he needs to practice his reading anyway!

Few authors keep my attention as intense or as curious to "what happens next" as Tricia O'Malley did while reading her book.  When I sit down to read, I want a book that keeps my attention, doesn't let my mind wander or allow me to decide to do something else or read another book after only a few chapters of the current one.  The Lost Dog did for me. I had the hardest time putting it down and was nearly late for at least one appointment! 

At first, the title and the cover, threw me.  I didn't want to read it, but once I read the description on the back of the book, I was immediately interested. I quickly found myself feeling like I was there with the family as they began a nightmare of a journey that all of us dog owners hope and pray doesn't never happens to us or anyone else for that matter. 

The book is based on a true story of a Boston Terrier named Briggs whose is stolen.  The setting is Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Tricia and Josh live.  The story takes you on a frightful, anxious, scary, and yet exciting journey as you join emotions with the dog parents and their friends during their search for The Stolen Dog.

You might want to have your dog handy while you read this book as I found myself wanting to check on mine!

I just heard from the author as this post was about to be published- We would to congratulate her as the book has achieved #23 on the New York Times E-Book Best Sellers list for the February 23rd list! 

An excellent note is a portion of all proceeds will benefit animal rescues. 

Two Disclaimers!
First, I’d give the book a PG-13. I share this rating due to profanity in the story, some of it strong.

Second, Noah and I were sent a copy of the book and asked to give our opinion.  As always, we give an honest, upfront review.
