      This is one really sweet and readable story, so 4 stars from me. Just for the record I'm not chick-lit fan at all, so when I give it 4 stars it's really good. Besides I'm dog-lover so I couldn't give it any less. I guess people who like sweet, chick-lit stories will love this one. This is story about people who try to live their everyday life, but they still don't know that their lives will be changed. It's about women, Rachel, in here late 30's who loses everything and gets everything in the sa [...]

      Rachel is a bit horrified when she finds out that her Aunt Dot has died and left her entire estate to her. Dot’s legacy is a boarding kennels in the middle of nowhere, a huge house and a lot of debts to go with it, and Rachel doesn’t much fancy moving and becoming at one with the dogs and their owners. However, when she arrives, she finds the people are nice folk with hearts of gold, and that the dogs quickly grow on you as well. Rachel soon begins to make friends with George, the dishy loca [...]

      ** 3,5 estrelas **Por vezes uma situação drástica na nossa vida é que nos salva e afinal aquilo que temos como certo acaba por ser demasiado redutor, insípido, insuficiente e superficial, a ponto de se tornar gritante a mudança. Há que ter o arrojo para deixar de se apiedar de si próprio e ir ao encontro de algo mais substancial, mais honesto, mais rico em emoções que nos enchem e preenchem a alma.O livro trata disso mesmo, de recomeços, tendo como pano de fundo os ditos corações se [...]

      The world of canine rescue is the foundation for this sweet story. There are three main vignettes with some minor characters revolving around them. A couple dealing with infertility, a divorced mom of two with the ex from hell and all the attendant heartache and a single career woman, suddenly finding herself without a job. All find each other when they become involved with a local rescue kennel. Friendships aren't immediate but start slowly, with each so absorbed with their issues that they can [...]

      I am a bit torn. I liked it, but at the same time it feltwell I just did not really connect. Maybe the book was just ok after all. Or ok bordering on good.Rachel is the main character as it is she who inherits a house and a kennel. And she does not like dogs. And she spent her 30s on a man who dumped her. But as we get to know her the book becomes about 2 other women too.Zoe who has an idiot ex husband, who gives the boy a puppy and leaves it to Zoe to care for it.Natalie and Johnny who is tryin [...]

      “Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” - Anatole FranceWhat a pleasant, nostalgic read! These lost dogs were the perfect companionship to my lonely heart and they totally stole the show. Don’t get me wrong, I love’em crazy, independent felines, but I’ll always be a dog person at heart. Oh yes, it’s a slow burner but those are often the best because somewhere along the line you get caught up in the story and you don’t let go till it’s finished. [...]

      I hur många år som helst nu (känns det som) har jag hört talas om denna Lucy Dillon och om hur mysiga hennes böcker är. Av någon anledning så har jag ändå inte läst den här boken, som stått i hyllan i nästan tre år. Nu blev det äntligen dags, efter att jag satt upp den på boktolvan. Läs mer på min blogg.

      Woman goes to take over dead aunt's dog rescue legacy, woman meets dog, woman meets vet. Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts is well-written and incredibly predictable - which isn't terrible, in a book that is meant to be tear-jerkingly heartwarming. People who like dogs and love stories will inevitably enjoy this.However, the nature of the mystery at the core of the book -- why her aunt lived as she did -- makes me see red. (view spoiler)[Ultimately, the aunt rejects marriage to the "perfect man" becau [...]

      Um livro fofinho tal como demonstra a capa. Com muitos cãezinhos e muitos momentos amorosos, ideais para sonhar com finais felizes. Não é o meu favorito de todos os tempos mas é uma leitura agradável e descontrarida

      What a genuinely lovely book this is.I hadn't read any of Lucy Dillon's books before, but I will now!The story centres around Rachel who inherits a large house, kennels, friends, and the responsibility for her rescue dogs from Dot, her unusual aunt. Prior to this Rachel had only know the trendy London scene where her job in PR, her interest in fashion, and hours spent networking left little room for anything else, except the odd evening spent with a man who turns out to be married. After her mov [...]

      I L.O.V.E. this book!!! It's cute, it's quirky, it's funny, it's real; it's the kind of book that tugs at your heartstrings and with all the D.O.G.S. involve, it's just plain amazing! First character we meet is Rachel. She just inherited her Aunt Dot's estate where a kennel is included along with rescued dogs. She just got out from a bad relationship and lost her job at the same time.Rachel had a 10-year relationship with her married boss, Oliver, who in my opinion tricked her into having a rela [...]

      Um livro apaixonante que junta a história de uma londrina solteirona, a recente divorciada e mãe de 2 filhos, um casal desesperado por ter um bebé, um veterinário grosseirão e o médico giraço da aldeia, em volta de uma herança que inclui um canil de boxes cheias e cofres vazios.Todas estas personagens, e muitas outras, vão-se unir em prol de fazer os pares mais perfeitos: o cão abandonado e o seu novo humano ideal, com muita emoção e romance à mistura.

    13. Cata on said:

      Corações Sem Dono é o meu livro de estreia com Lucy Dillon.Apesar de não me ter deixado fã, foi um livro muito agradável de se ler. É um livro que contém várias histórias pessoais que se interligam por causa dos cães e que enfatiza o quão bons companheiros estes podem ser em troca de um pouco de amor, carinho e atenção. É bastante interessante ver acompanhar a evolução das personagens e a maneira como enfrentam os dissabores da vida na companhia do ‘melhor amigo do homem’. A [...]

      Desde que este livro saiu no ano passado que tive curiosidade em lê-lo! Adoro animais domésticos e gosto principalmente de ler sobre relações entre humanos e animais e lendo a sinopse este livro pareceu-me o ideal. Digo já que a sinopse engana um bocado pois eu estava à espera de o livro se focar apenas na Rachel, uma mulher trintona que se vê sozinha a gerir um canil e uma casa cheia de dívidas, ambos deixados pela sua tia Dorothy, uma grande admiradora de cães. O livro não é apenas [...]

      Mi dispiace dare solo tre stelline a questo libro che, per il tema affrontato, ne meriterebbe cinque ma purtroppo non mi ha convinto fino in fondo. Alcuni refusi, non troppo gravi, ma comunque fastidiosi e alcune scelte nella traduzione hanno reso, secondo me, poco scorrevole questo libro. La storia ruota attorno ai tentativi di Rachel, neo proprietaria di un canile ereditato dalla zia Dot, e di Megan la sua dipendente di trovare una nuova casa ai cani abbandonati e la star del canile è Bertie [...]

      I am a dog lover, so the title attracted me instantly.The book talks about a dog rescue and re-homing place and does a wonderful job of it. I loved reading about the various breeds of dogs and their behaviour and how they are paired up with new owners rather how they select their owners. The interview with the author at the end of the book was an interesting reading.I must admit that I could relate and enjoy a lot the Lost Dog part of the book, the Lonely Hearts part made an average reading.The [...]

      Definitely not my cup of tea. I found it boring, too sentimental and too predictable.

    20. Jayme(the ghost reader) on said:

      I loved this book. Rachel inherits her aunt's house and dog rescue after she loses her job, her boyfriend and her apartment. She has nothing more to lose. As she figures out what to do with the rescue, she has a fresh start rehoming dogs to the right owner and hopefully finding some romance of her own. I loved all the dogs in this book and the main characters felt like real people.

      Review: tempodler/search/lfacebook/pages/Tempo-dUm excelente livro, não só para quem gosta de animais mas simplesmente para quem gosta de ler!É certo que a história começa por se desenrolar de forma bastante lenta, mas quando Dillon encontra o seu ritmo o livro torna-se encantador, seguindo numa passada agradável. A familiaridade com as personagens também é difícil de adquirir de início já que somos apresentados a diversas figuras aparentemente aleatórias, sem ligação entre elas, o [...]

      If you need a happy ending, laughter inducing, doggy loving sort of story I highly recommend you try Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts. What a well told, heart-warming story! I wasn't sure in beginning, but it quickly became the story I was hoping for. The one you reread on a rainy day when you need a pick me up. Something easy but fulfilling. The best part was that I listened to it as an audio. If I had started reading a physical copy, I would have picked up from the lingo that it took place in Engla [...]

Hvad skal hun med et sådant internat, hvad skal hun gøre med sit liv, og hvordan kommer hun videre? Måske er der alligevel meget hun skal lære om sig selv og hvad hun egentlig ønsker og vil…Jeg smilede igennem store dele af bogen, ligesom dens meget følsomme beskrivelser af hundene og deres situationer kunne få mit til at k [...]

      Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts is the first book I have read by Lucy Dillon. I was given this book to read by a client and on first glimpse I liked the look of the book, girly pink and white with glitter snow balls on the front. It looks like your typical chic lit book and then came the title of the book and this put me off. I am not really what you would call your typical animal lover and I would defiantly not put a book about dogs on the top of my to read list. All this aside I had run out of boo [...]

      Det är en hjärtevärmande bok. Jag älskar hundar och tar till mig boken direkt. Önskar att jag kunde vara där och hjälpa till att rasta hundarna, att ta hand om en övergiven hund, att vara delaktig av allt det som skerFörmodligen känner jag så eftersom författaren lyckas skildra handlingen så att det känns som om jag är där och går bredvid personerna. Det enda jag skulle önskat är att fokus hade lagts på en av kvinnorna och inte på alla som är med i handlingen. Jag skulle vi [...]

      This is the book that won the Romantic Novel of the Year this year, so I hoped it'd be something a bit special. It's chick lit, but chick lit done really, really well - reminded me of Julia Williams or Sarah Duncan whose books I've enjoyed a lot recently. I mean, what's not to like? A large cast of characters - townie Rachel who inherits a kennels and dog rescue centre, a gruff (but attractive) vet, the couple trying to have a baby, the single mum struggling, the Aussie kennel maid, the sexy vil [...]

      Well I think it says it all that I have finished this book in one day! I loved this one as much as the other 2 of Lucy Dillon's that I have read this past week. I have really enjoyed reading about the many residents of Longhampton, and of the town itself - I really feel like I know the place now, I can picture it vividly in my head!Lucy Dillon brings the town and the characters to life, and with each book, I have really felt like I know the residents, and I can picture all the dogs too. This has [...]
