Library Journal Reviews

Who says you can't go home again? Trout's second novel, and sequel to The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs, opens with Cyrus Mills, a former veterinarian pathologist, back in his hometown trying to pull his deceased father's veterinary clinic out of financial ruin. Cyrus's father ran the practice by making sure pets got the best care possible and not worrying about whether their owners could pay. Cyrus is facing increasing pressure from the ruthless corporate chain Healthy Paws, which is trying to run him out of business. Will Cyrus be able to make his clinic thrive and still provide pets, and their owners, with the most exceptional treatment available? VERDICT Animal lovers can unite in heartfelt agreement on the delightful charm, drama, and humor of Trout's follow-up. The book is full of intriguing and colorful characters but none so engaging and endearing as Cyrus, the socially awkward, but genuinely kind, country vet.—Susan Moritz, Silver Spring, MD
