Dog Gone, Back Soon (Cyrus Mills, #2)When Dr. Cyrus Mills returned home after inheriting his estranged father's veterinary practice, The Bedside Manor for Sick Animals, the last thing he wanted was to stay in Eden Falls, Vermont, a moment longer than absolutely necessary. However, the previously reclusive veterinarian pathologist quickly found that he actually enjoyed treating animals and getting to know the eccentric residents of the tiny provincial town-especially an alluring waitress named Amy. 

So Cyrus is now determined to make Bedside Manor thrive. Not an easy goal, given that Healthy Paws, the national veterinary chain across town, will stop at nothing to crush its mom-and-pop competitor. And the rival vet practice isn't Cyrus's only competition; a handsome stranger shows up out of nowhere who clearly has a mysterious past with Amy. To top it off, Cyrus finds himself both the guardian of a very unique orphaned dog and smack in the middle of serious small town drama.

This charming sequel to 
The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs is a wild and delightful ride through one jam- packed week, where Cyrus must figure out how to outsmart the evil veterinary conglomerate, win back Amy's heart, solve several tricky veterinary cases, find a home for an orphaned dog, and detangle himself from an absurd case of mistaken identity. DOG GONE, BACK SOON brims with Nick Trout's trademark humor, charm, and captivating animal stories, and is proof that all dogs, lost or not, on four feet or two, deserve a second chance.

My Thoughts: 
The Cover: I loved the cover to this one. It was cute and told me this was going to be a fun read. It was definitely not something I would have read, but the cover caught my eye and I am glad I did. It was a great book, a light read, and a nice break from the heavy stuff I have been reading.

The Plot:  This book had an interesting plot. It kept a good pace and definitely held my interest. I really enjoyed the main characters interaction with the animals.

Characters:  The main character quickly became my favorite. Aside from his jealous nature, he seemed really sweet. I liked the way he tackled his patients mysterious illness to find the cure even if he didn’t particularly like or get along with said patient. Dr. Honey surprised me as well.

Is it Worth Reading?:  Yes, this was definitely a fun way to pass the time. A little light humor, some mystery and some romance, what more could one want. I look forward to the next book in the series and give this one 4/5 crossbows.
