Publisher's Summary

An autism cure will kill millions unless a service dog and his trainer find a missing child...in 24 hours.

An auntsearches for her lost nephew - and dooms her sister.

A mom gambles a miracle will cure - and not kill - her child.

A dog finds his true purpose - when he disobeys.

Animal behaviorist September Day has lost everything - husband murdered, career in ruins, confidence shot - and returns home with her trained Maine Coon cat, Macy, to Texas to recover. She's forced out of hibernation when her nephew Steven and his autism service dog Shadow disappear in a freak blizzard. When her sister trusts a maverick researcher's promise to help Steven, September has 24 hours to rescue them from a devastating medical experiment impacting millions of children, a deadly secret others will kill to protect. As September races the clock, the body count swells. Shadow does his good-dog duty but can't protect his boy. Finally September and Shadow forge a stormy partnership to rescue the missing and stop the nightmare cure. But can they also find the lost parts of themselves?

    Story
    "The value of life!"

    I enjoyed the story written by Amy Shojai. The story was filled with good details, mystery, intrigue, and plenty of twist and turns throughout the story. I love that she included dogs in her story that are trained to find people. This was a well thought of story and I enjoyed it immensely.

    I was surprised that the author did the narration as well. She did a magnificent job with the telling of her story. I enjoyed the characters accents, especially Pam's voice. I was able to recognize each character with the distinguishing accents she gave them. She brought this story to life and I would love to hear more stories that she's narrated, even if they're not her own. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Thriller with pets."
    Would you listen to Lost and Found again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoyed the story a lot. I loved the idea of it and how the different POVs happened. Shojai did a great job on character voices.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. It's a scary concept and kept me going to the end.


    What about Amy Shojai’s performance did you like?

    She was great. Lots of different character voices and POV.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It lasts longer so if you did it would be too long but it was a good story.


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite character was Shadow. I loved his POV. I will look for more books by Shojai.

    "great thriller ... dog lover or not"
    Any additional comments?

    I have recieved this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

    I am very suprised that this audiobook has been hiddden away, I have never heard of the author before.I can see that she has written lots of non fiction books about dog and cat behavior .
    So it's rather unusaul that she is able to write such a competant thriller(fiction). Obviously the backgroud story is her field of expertise, and this is very clear throughout the book.

    Even if you are not interested in dogs ,or their behavior, this one has a lot more to offer, suspense throughout and an inventive and interesteing plot.

    I was a bit dubious when I realised it was the author herself that narrates this book( only because of previous experience- its rare that the author does a good job of narrating books.) but Amy actually does a good job, my only (slight) critisism would be that most of her male voices sound old and croaky, but not so bad that it is annoying or a distraction.
    Good Job :-)

    I read the book when it first came out so I didn't know if I would like this version. It turned out I certainly did. Hearing the author read her book gave it a whole new dimension. It is a great story and I am looking forward to the next one. A problem I didn't expect is whether to read it or listen to it. I may do both.

    "Riveting, Believable, Hungry!"

    Didn't know the writer but she grabbed me from the first chapter! Characters and situations are real life identifiers with me because I have a grandson with autism and totally love and support service animals! Hungry, you ask - what has that got to do with this story? It gave me a craving for more of her books! And I have shared her name , blog and website with friends and family since we are a bunch of diehard readers! Thanks, Amy, for writing stories that draw us in and make us feel we are right there in the snow, the searches and delightful ending!

    Story
    "Could not get into this book"
    What would have made Lost and Found better?

    A clearer description of what was happening. Also, characters who were more interesting.
    I found the story told from the dog's point if view was distracting.


    Has Lost and Found turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Shojai?

    I don't know, but someone else!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lost and Found?

    I never got far enough into it. I rarely stop listening to a book, but just couldn't get interested enough to continue.

    Story
    "Keep your day job!"

    I'll start with the positive. Storyline was interesting. Pet interactions were fun. That's it for the positives. The negatives... The dialog was horrible. No one really talks like these characters, especially the female cop. The performance was even worse than the dialog. If I could have given 0 stars for the vocal performance, I would have. The male characters sounded like British butlers and the female characters sounded like elderly women although they were of child bearing age.

    Note to author, if you want to write more fiction, employ a ghost writer to turn your ideas into prose because the premise was decent. Then hire a professional narrator for the audiobook. Or just stick to nonfiction writing only.

    Spoiler ahead... Turning the 7 year old afflicted child into a would-be killer was way over the top, as we already knew the drug turned the adult afflicted character into a murderer. It was unnecessary and creepy and gave me one more reason for regretting the purchase of this audiobook.

    Story
    "Authors narration not good."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The author read her own book which would have been fine had she not tried to give her characters different voices. She made them sound like wimps, big dumb thugs (most of her male characters sounded like that) or just dumb. I didn't like the narration coming from the dog. Maybe the narration could have been handles some other way. It just bothered me. I do like how she came up for the name of the pets (read the epilogue to find out how she chose the names).


    Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Shojai? Why or why not?

    Yes. I'll read the next one instead. I would like to read her animal behavior books. I pet sit and would like to see how she does things. I get asked questions that I can sometimes answer but I am more of a cat person and all cats and dogs react differently to different things.


    What aspect of Amy Shojai’s performance would you have changed?

    Her character voices like when the old man is upset when he's contacting someone to save the main character. I really wanted to start yelling at him to stop being hysterical and get it together. The character voices were not my cup of tea as I have stated above. Her regular reading voice was totally fine.


    Do you think Lost and Found needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    *spoiler alert* I can't say for sure. I can't get past the character voices. Truth is, most of the characters were not very likable. The babysitter, the sister, the radio station guy. Even the main character being characterized as a frump was not nice. She could have dressed in a nondescript way. Some of the bad guys were written perfectly evil (the shadow) but it was too easy for them to be evil to the good guys who were on the gullible side. If you keep the main character and the cop who turns up at the end with the mug, and leave the others out of it.

    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 Shojai 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.
