    3. 3,5 estrelas Por vezes uma situa o dr stica na nossa vida que nos salva e afinal aquilo que temos como certo acaba por ser demasiado redutor, ins pido, insuficiente e superficial, a ponto de se tornar gritante a mudan a H que ter o arrojo para deixar de se apiedar de si pr prio e ir ao encontro de algo mais substancial, mais honesto, mais rico em emo es que nos enchem e preenchem a alma.O livro trata disso mesmo, de recome os, tendo como pano de fundo os ditos cora es sem dono, c es abandonados, [...]


    4.

    5. I am a bit torn I liked it, but at the same time it feltwell I just did not really connect Maybe the book was just ok after all Or ok bordering on good.Rachel is the main character as it is she who inherits a house and a kennel And she does not like dogs And she spent her 30s on a man who dumped her But as we get to know her the book becomes about 2 other women too.Zoe who has an idiot ex husband, who gives the boy a puppy and leaves it to Zoe to care for it.Natalie and Johnny who is trying for [...]


    6. Until one has loved an animal a part of one s soul remains unawakened Anatole FranceWhat a pleasant, nostalgic read These lost dogs were the perfect companionship to my lonely heart and they totally stole the show Don t get me wrong, I love em crazy, independent felines, but I ll always be a dog person at heart Oh yes, it s a slow burner but those are often the best because somewhere along the line you get caught up in the story and you don t let go till it s finished For me it was when these th [...]

    8. Woman goes to take over dead aunt s dog rescue legacy, woman meets dog, woman meets vet Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts is well written and incredibly predictable which isn t terrible, in a book that is meant to be tear jerkingly heartwarming People who like dogs and love stories will inevitably enjoy this.However, the nature of the mystery at the core of the book why her aunt lived as she did makes me see red view spoiler Ultimately, the aunt rejects marriage to the perfect man because he turns out [...]

What a genuinely lovely book this is.I hadn t read any of Lucy Dillon s books before, but I will now The story centres around Rachel who inherits a large house, kennels, friends, and the responsibility for her rescue dogs from Dot, her unusual aunt Prior to this Rachel had only know the trendy London scene where her job in PR, her interest in fashion, and hours spent networking left little room for anything else, except the odd evening spent with a man who turns out to be married After her move [...]

I L.O.V.E this book It s cute, it s quirky, it s funny, it s real it s the kind of book that tugs at your heartstrings and with all the D.O.G.S involve, it s just plain amazing First character we meet is Rachel She just inherited her Aunt Dot s estate where a kennel is included along with rescued dogs She just got out from a bad relationship and lost her job at the same time.Rachel had a 10 year relationship with her married boss, Oliver, who in my opinion tricked her into having a relationship [...]

    14. Desde que este livro saiu no ano passado que tive curiosidade em l lo Adoro animais dom sticos e gosto principalmente de ler sobre rela es entre humanos e animais e lendo a sinopse este livro pareceu me o ideal Digo j que a sinopse engana um bocado pois eu estava espera de o livro se focar apenas na Rachel, uma mulher trintona que se v sozinha a gerir um canil e uma casa cheia de d vidas, ambos deixados pela sua tia Dorothy, uma grande admiradora de c es O livro n o apenas isto, muito mais do qu [...]

    16. Mi dispiace dare solo tre stelline a questo libro che, per il tema affrontato, ne meriterebbe cinque ma purtroppo non mi ha convinto fino in fondo Alcuni refusi, non troppo gravi, ma comunque fastidiosi e alcune scelte nella traduzione hanno reso, secondo me, poco scorrevole questo libro La storia ruota attorno ai tentativi di Rachel, neo proprietaria di un canile ereditato dalla zia Dot, e di Megan la sua dipendente di trovare una nuova casa ai cani abbandonati e la star del canile Bertie il Ba [...]


    17.

    18. I am a dog lover, so the title attracted me instantly.The book talks about a dog rescue and re homing place and does a wonderful job of it I loved reading about the various breeds of dogs and their behaviour and how they are paired up with new owners rather how they select their owners The interview with the author at the end of the book was an interesting reading.I must admit that I could relate and enjoy a lot the Lost Dog part of the book, the Lonely Hearts part made an average reading.The bo [...]



    19. I loved this book Rachel inherits her aunt s house and dog rescue after she loses her job, her boyfriend and her apartment She has nothing to lose As she figures out what to do with the rescue, she has a fresh start rehoming dogs to the right owner and hopefully finding some romance of her own I loved all the dogs in this book and the main characters felt like real people.

    22. If you need a happy ending, laughter inducing, doggy loving sort of story I highly recommend you try Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts What a well told, heart warming story I wasn t sure in beginning, but it quickly became the story I was hoping for The one you reread on a rainy day when you need a pick me up Something easy but fulfilling The best part was that I listened to it as an audio If I had started reading a physical copy, I would have picked up from the lingo that it took place in England But [...]

    24. Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts is the first book I have read by Lucy Dillon I was given this book to read by a client and on first glimpse I liked the look of the book, girly pink and white with glitter snow balls on the front It looks like your typical chic lit book and then came the title of the book and this put me off I am not really what you would call your typical animal lover and I would defiantly not put a book about dogs on the top of my to read list All this aside I had run out of books t [...]

    27. This is the book that won the Romantic Novel of the Year this year, so I hoped it d be something a bit special It s chick lit, but chick lit done really, really well reminded me of Julia Williams or Sarah Duncan whose books I ve enjoyed a lot recently I mean, what s not to like A large cast of characters townie Rachel who inherits a kennels and dog rescue centre, a gruff but attractive vet, the couple trying to have a baby, the single mum struggling, the Aussie kennel maid, the sexy village doct [...]


    28. Well I think it says it all that I have finished this book in one day I loved this one as much as the other 2 of Lucy Dillon s that I have read this past week I have really enjoyed reading about the many residents of Longhampton, and of the town itself I really feel like I know the place now, I can picture it vividly in my head Lucy Dillon brings the town and the characters to life, and with each book, I have really felt like I know the residents, and I can picture all the dogs too This has a be [...]
