On a bright autumn day, Flynn Marlowe lost his best friend, a beagle named Barley, while out on a hike in Seattle’s Discovery Park.
On a cold winter day, Mac Bowersox found his best friend, a lost, scared, and emaciated beagle, on the streets of Seattle.
Two men. One dog. When Flynn and Mac meet by chance in a park the next summer, there’s a problem—who does Barley really belong to? Flynn wants him back, but he can see that Mac rescued him and loves him just as much as he does. Mac wants to keep the dog, and he can imagine how heartbreaking losing him would be—but that's just what Flynn experienced.
A “shared custody” compromise might be just the way to work things out. But will the arrangement be successful? Mac and Flynn are willing to try it—and along the way, they just might fall in love.
Flynn had lost his dog while hiking one day. Months later he is out running and sees his best friend. A sexy redhead is walking him. Flynn is sure that the beagle is Barley. He talks to the man, but the man denies it saying he got him from a kennel as a puppy. Flynn knows he is lying but has to figure o out how to prove it and get his dog back.
Mac is so nervous when the hot runner stops him he lies about Hamburger. He found him in the park nearly starved and has nursed him back to health and is attached to him. When confronted again about the dog, Mac has no choice but to give the dog to his rightful owner. His landlady suggests they do a shared custody, but both men are doubtful.
The more Flynn thinks about Mac, the more he decides to take a chance.
Lost and Found is a beautiful story. It starts about a little sad and grabs you from the moment you start. It is a story about loving a dog, finding friendship and more and life. There are many heart-wrenching moments and a twist at the end that had me wanting to wallop Mac.
If you like runners, waiters, feisty landlady, a very good romance, and of course cute dogs and happy endings, I highly suggest this book!
