Review ~ Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout

Dog Gone, Back Soon (Cyrus Mills, #2)Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cyrus is a wonderful character and this was a great story. A romance that was very different than what I had expected. This was so much fun, as Dr. Mills diagnosed animals. I found it interesting and exciting, especially since I’m a huge dog fan.

Cyrus Mills was a reclusive, curious, nosy man and movie buff that solved incredible health mysteries. I loved the way his mind worked and being inside it made for a great read. Most of the time, his thoughts were inappropriate but hilarious. And not only was Cyrus the only awesome character, there were so many more.

Trout told an amazing story and I recommend it to anyone that loves great cast of characters, dogs, interesting veterinarian cases, and an amazing hero.


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.
