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.

    "You don't want to miss this book!"
    If you could sum up Lost and Found in three words, what would they be?

    Tense, Edgy, Intense.


    Any additional comments?

    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 and how did they fit in?" and sometimes a character is brought back in and you have to think the same; nothing in this book is done on accident, Amy Shojai is extremely clever. For as many sub-plots as there are, I was never confused or overwhelmed. This is a very fast paced book, and there are a lot of very important small details that keep the reader paying close attention. It would almost be worthwhile to go back and re-read to see all the red herrings and easter eggs that I missed. I did see the final twist at the end, as she had built it up nicely with the descriptors, but again, you just have to pay close attention! It could be easy to see the different scenes in this book and ask how they might have anything to do with the storyline, but then right about as you're forgetting ti happened, BAM! Amy slaps you in the face with the reason why she put in these extra anecdotes. It makes for a much more fulfilling storyline to see the effects, rather than just be told that it's happening. I know I'm being vague, but I don't want to give away any spoilers.
    I would've given this book a solid 5 stars, but it drove me crazy that the author tells us that September's husband and dog died at the hands of a stalker and that's why she has some social anxiety (and likes to over-lock her doors) but we never really hear any details and it's just glossed over. I feel like if you're going to bring up the past, it's important to flesh it out in order for your readers to understand the character's motivations just a bit better instead of being hinted at and glossed over. That's just frustrating!

    I received a free audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review; this in no way affects my opinions, although I am grateful for the opportunity to listen and review.

    Amy Shojai both wrote and narrated this audiobook, and this is the first author-narrated book I've listened to. I think it's kind of special. The quality of this audiobook wasn't as great as some of the other's I've listened to, as there were a few pops, cracks, and some light static, and it was a bit tinny. It didn't distract from my experience at all, and I really only noticed it in the first couple minutes, and then I got used to it. She does a great job of differentiating voices in dialogue so that the listener isn't confused about who's currently doing the talking. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and I couldn't get enough. I listened to this book in just a few sittings because it was so intense and I just couldn't put it down!

    "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
    "4.5 Enjoy the Wild Ride"

    Summary: It’s like the adult version of a horrible, no good, very bad day. This woman – September Day – knows how to find trouble in spades.

    Additional Comments:

    - Plot’s kind of out there, but that can add to the charm.

    - The author does a decent job narrating her own story. Not a huge fan of the concept of self-narrating, but she does decent sound effects and voice variation.

    - I love Shadow! Feel like I should get a T-shirt with that emblazoned on it. He’s adorable. I could go either way on sections of a book being written from a dog’s point of view, but it’s done well here.

    - Some of the “bad guys” aren’t really believable, but it’s good to have some moral ambiguity to wrestle with. (sometimes)

    - The part about drug trials is realistic enough.

    - Loved the end twist. I had heard book 2 first, so I might have known it already, but I’d forgotten enough.

    - There are quite a few perspectives to keep track of, not all of them necessary. But the skipping around didn’t bother me in audio form.

    - I love how ordinary September is. That makes her an awesome heroine.

    Conclusion: Don’t think too hard about plausibility. Grab the audiobook and enjoy the wild ride.

    * I received a copy of the audiobook, but the choice to review it as well as the opinions expressed here are my own.

    "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.

    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.
