    1. Didn't like it.September is trying to save her autistic nephew and his dog. Only parts I liked reading was her dog and cat training. Very expensive snake oil treatment families signing up to cure their autistic children. But many pages of this book is filled with unnecessary dialogue.

    3. What a well-written book, especially for a debut novel. Ms. Shojai is not a novice writer; she has many non-fiction books and articles on pet health under her belt. Now, in this story of an autistic child and his service dog lost in a snowstorm, the aunt that is trying desperately to find him and the mother who will do anything to cure him, this author has proven that she can write fiction as well. Both the settings and the characters are well developed in this fast-paced intriguing book.I parti [...]

    4. Review Copy Provided by AuthorI have to admit that at first I was skeptical about how much I was going to enjoy the book – because I felt upon reading the jacket copy that too much of the plot had been disclosed (don’t worry, I was partially wrong). And the first few chapters were a bit rough, for lack of a better word – it took me a little while to get into the feel of her writing which is very stark (for lack of a better word) as well as the one POV being from Shadow, the German Shepherd [...]

    5. I read this book for Promotional Book Tours for a fair and honest review.This book starts out in a unique way. It takes from a dog's point of view of how things are taking place. I found that an original way to do things.The summary of this book does not do this book justice. It is so much more than the summary shows.What would you do for someone you love? Probably anything right? So does September, and her sister April. They would do anything and everything to protect Steven. This book is a gra [...]

    6. This is one of the most unique story lines I have read in a while. Besides being a riveting story, the inclusion of the German Shepard, Shadow, as a character in the novel is truly fascinating. To follow along in the dog's head and see his need to please, obey, take care and understand is a wonderful twist that brought me into the story quickly.As the story quickly progresses, the growing suspense with the continuing rise of danger and deaths makes it impossible to stop turning the pages. The st [...]

    7. Too bad.:(I enjoyed reading this book but when I went on to read more of this series and the authors other books, I found that none of them are on kindle unlimited. It was frustrating while reading that I couldn't use xray with the book but to not have them available on kindle unlimited pretty much ruins them for me. No recommendation. :(

    8. There are many reasons to enjoy reading Lost and Found by author Amy Shojai. I love dogs so that was a sure pick for me and when you add a child with special needs, and add in promising new medical research, and a mystery I was hooked!September Day, yes that is her name, and her sister April end up in a cat and mouse game of death with a suspenseful plot. April's son and his 'in-training' companion dog are missing! April frantically calls her sister to demand that she find Stephen and his dog S [...]

    9. Dragged on and on. Shadow's monologue was boring and difficult to get through. Too many characters and events going on at the same time. Couldn't finish the book.

    10. To be perfectly honest, when I first read the plot summary for this book, I thought it was going to be a light/cozy mystery. I had no idea what I was in store for. This book is intense. There is a lot going on between the missing autistic boy, the sister (April) getting mixed up with the miracle cure people, September's past, dog training and tracking, and characters being shot and killed. There are SO many people who are killed, that sometimes you have to stop and think back "now who was that a [...]

    11. "Holy Crapiocca!" as the protagonist, September Day, would say. What a read!Though author Amy Shojai has proven her chops as a prolific and knowledgeable nonfiction writer in the field of pet training and care, that kind of skill doesn't always translate to the fiction genre. I'm here to tell you if you have any reservations about that issue, cancel them right now and run -- don't walk -- to buy a ticket on the breathless ride that is Ms. Shojai's fiction debut.It's been a while since a story ha [...]

    12. Amy Shojai is a certified animal behavior consultant and has written 26 Award-Winning Pet Care Books. She has also developed a dog training vocabulary game. She uses this knowledge to create her first book of fiction. Lost and Found is definitely a "Thriller with a BITE".There are many interesting characters in the story - both human and animal. The main character, September, is an animal behavior specialist - just like the author. September's relationship with her family is very complicated, he [...]

    13. It is an ordinary day…except that there is an unusual blizzard in North Texas, which has the whole area in an uproar. Then the call came. “Lost and Found” is a fictional work by Amy Shojai, in which the main character, September Day, has a past which is causing her to have difficulties facing the present. She is plunged into a situation, which has her running, against all odds, to save her seven year old nephew, who has autism, and his companion dog. What is worse is that there is a deadli [...]

    14. Wow! What a wild ride! When I was first asked to review Lost and Found, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Service Dogs? Kidnappings? Autism? Medical drama? I was a little concerned about how all of those were going to relate to one another, but my concerns were unfounded because once this story got rolling, I was completely swept away. Shojai melded all of these things together in a nearly seamless flow.Written in third person, the narration alternates between different perspectives. The primary c [...]

    15. This was a great read! The action starts quickly and never lets up. I really enjoyed reading Shadow's "good-dog" perspective throughout the story, and all the human characters were well-written and enjoyable as well. I am looking forward to reading more adventures with Shadow and September and learning more about September's mysterious back story.I did find a few minor editing oversights, but it was well-written and didn't have as many errors as many Kindle books I've read. However, in Chapter 2 [...]

    16. September Day is a animal trainer and pretty good at her job, she moved back to Texas after her husband a police officer got killed.She locks herself pretty much u in her house when she is working on her item in a radio show (gives advise for pets) her phone keeps on calling, she ignores it and then her sister calls the studio phone line in panic telling her that Steven (her autistic nephew run away with his puppy)September pretty much leaves the show and her house in a hurry to find her nephew.

    17. Amy Shojai is an IAABC behavior consultant and author of 26 pet care books. This experience really shows in this outstanding book. I began the book quite sure I wouldn't like it because it is definitely not my genre. My attitude changed very quickly and I wound up loving it. I am a dog lover but I don't read dog books. Mystery and adventure is usually what I choose, but Amy has changed that. I will soon read her second novel, Hide and Seek and I expect to love it as well. This is a well written [...]

    18. I'm fortunate to have gotten to review the audio book, read by the author, Amy Shojai. First off, Amy is a wonderful reader and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her book in her own voice - or rather voices. This book isn't typically what I would pick up to read, but I'm so glad she asked me to! The plot grabs you immediately and the reader (or listener) is drawn into September's world. I think the part that captured my attention so greatly is the notion of what a person, especially a parent, wo [...]

    19. This was a great, entertaining book. The plot twists and secrets that were gradually revealed I did not see coming. I love when I can't guess where the story is going. The story alternated between three primary characters and glimpses into a few others. I liked getting a whole picture of everything, but a few times that meant some revelation at the end of one character's chapter wasn't explained until several chapters later. It left me feeling a little lost sometimes, but not so much I couldn't [...]

    20. Riveting, fast-paced, page-turner thriller. Could not put this book down and happily spent an entire Saturday afternoon devouring it. Strong characters, an unexpected blizzard in northern Texas; good guys and bad guys, and two engaging animals added to the mix: a Main Coon cat with attitude and a nine month old, German Shepherd pup - a novice service dog that will steal your heart. Reading this book felt like I was on a roller coaster or, better yet, flying down a river on a white water rafting [...]

    21. Having just finished the book "Lost and Found" by Amy Shojai, I have nothing but praise for the book. A compelling story, with realistically drawn characters, this book is a page turner from the beginning, to the end. There are several twists, that you just don't see coming! When a child disappears with his assistance dog, the protagonist, must use all of her strengths to help find them. I loved the use of chapters from the point of view of Shadow, the assistance dog to help show the reader how [...]

    22. I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This was a fast paced, suspenseful novel. It completely threw me for a loop and surpassed my expectations. Amy Shojai is a talented writer, I’d never have thought a book where two of the main characters were animals would make such an extraordinary novel but it does! September Day’s character development was steady throughout the novel, you could really grasp where she’s coming from. All in all a fantastic book, I’m so thr [...]

    23. This book was good.I had a hard time when we had to listen to what the DOG was thinking,it just seemed to go on forever!When Steven was ranting was another cringeworthy moment or 2.The storyline:An Aunt is called from her radio show to help find her autistic nephew in a snowstorm.That looks straight forward enough,until people start dying.Amy Shojah did a great job with most of the voices needed.Her male voices were slow and scarey though,sounding like they were talking through a plastic bottle.

    24. A Thriller With Bite!For Amy Shojai's first foray into fiction, Lost & Found is a home run! Suspenseful right from the beginning, the action never stops. September is in a race against time to save her sister April and her nephew Stephen from some very evil people. It seems that at every turn, there's more blood and mystery. September is lightly introduced - in order to learn more, I read the book as quickly as possible. I had trouble putting it down, in fact. I highly recommend this book to [...]

    25. Lost and Found is not a story for the meek of heart or anyone with a short attention span! Amy Shojai has cleverly crafted a tale that grabs you from the beginning and keeps you in the middle of a gripping, action-packed story right to the end. Her characters are so believable there are times you feel you are not reading fiction. With her expertise in animal behaviour, Shojai writes much of the story from the perspective of Shadow, an autism service dog, adding a wonderful and different dimensio [...]

    26. Like Robert Crais in Suspect, Shojai writes part of the book from the dog's perspective. And like Crais, her canine protagonist is a German Shepherd. As the pack leader of two GSDs, how could I resist? Great read. The story pulled me along, kept me intrigued and involved, which is my #1 requirement for a good book. I appreciated the ending. It was not depressing, but it was also not "And everyone lived happily ever after". There were enough loose ends that perhaps the author will create a series [...]

    27. If I had been buying this from the bookstore I might not have gotten it. What a missed adventure it would have been.Right from the start it grabs ahold of you and doesn't let go. Amy Shojai takes you for a ride that you won't soon forget. I recieved this book on Friday and couldn't put it down until I finished the last page at five a.m. needing to know how it ended. I look forward to reading more fiction from Amy Shojai in the near future.

    28. A fast-paced thriller with two great main characters, September Day and her remarkable dog Shadow, who must outrun a killer and a killer storm to save the life of a missing boy with autism. The medical mystery involving a potential autism cure that could go horribly wrong was fascinating. As a health and medical writer myself I appreciate the fact that Shojai has done her research and created a plausible and frightening scenario.Can't wait for the next in this series!

    29. I read my review copy of Lost and Found very quickly! I enjoyed her style of writing and loved the dog's point of view that peppered the story. While the bad guys appeared early in the story, I wasn't reading the book to discover who the villains were. I read it to enjoy the September and Shadow's journey. And the ending wasn't quite what I expected! No completely tidy ending here! I'm looking forward to the next book featuring these two characters.

    30. I don't normally read thrillers, but since it was partially narrated by a German Shepherd, I gave it a try. The dog's perspective was one of the best I've seen done--and gives tons of insight into on canine behavior. Although I normally like a lighter-hearted read, this was worth the read. The story's still sticking with me today.
