Publisher's Summary

An irresistible novel about women, men, and the dogs that own them. Thirty-nine year old Rachel is having a really bad year. After losing her job and breaking up with her boyfriend, Rachel has inherited her late aunt's house, her beloved border collie, and a crowded rescue kennel, despite the fact that she knows almost nothing about dogs. Still, considering her limited options, she gamely takes up the challenge of running the kennel. And as Rachel starts finding new homes for the abandoned strays, it turns out that it might not just be the dogs that need rescuing.

Lovely story and fantastic narrator

What did you love best about Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts?

The story was endearing, the lost dogs tug at my heart and although fiction their stories almost made me cry (I am a dog sap). As a compulsive reader going through laser eye surgery recovery this was a fantastic substitute for a paper book. Jilly Bond is a fantastic narrator who is able to do the male and female voices both very well (something i imagine is very difficult). She reads with feeling and helps you get caught up in the story. Also she has a very pleasing reading voice.

Fully Enjoyed This Novel!

Where does Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think it is up there. I wasn't too sure I usually listen to non-fiction but I bought it and listed and found myself really invested in the characters and wanting more when it ended... I have put her other book on my wish list.


What did you like best about this story?

The intermingling of the characters.


Which character – as performed by Jilly Bond – was your favorite?

Megan. The Aussie. Too funny, no boundries! Loved her!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Rachel realized she really was happy where she was and that Jem had become part of her life and that she was staying.
