BOSTON—April 8, 2014 – Readers first introduced to the awkward yet loveable Dr. Cyrus Mills and his endeavor to take over his deceased father’s veterinary practice in last year’s celebrated The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs can today return to their favorite characters—as well as the idyllic town of Eden Falls, Vermont—with the release of Dr. Nick Trout’s fifth book: Dog Gone, Back Soon. The new novel, available wherever books and eBooks are sold, continues Cyrus’ story as he struggles to fit into his community, and as his feelings for a local waitress deepen.
Trout’s writing, inspired by his cases as a veterinary surgeon at Angell Animal Medical Center, provide a fascinating look into modern veterinary medicine and have won praise from readers around the world. In Dog Gone, Back Soon, Trout transports readers back to Eden Falls to witness Cyrus’ attempts to thwart the aggressive and underhanded efforts of Healthy Paws (the big veterinary chain across town) as it tries to put Bedside Manor—the practice Cyrus took over from his father—out of business.
A charming and heartwarming tale of new beginnings, Dog Gone, Back Soon celebrates the wisdom to be gained from furry friends and one man’s discovery that you can indeed go home again.
With more than 25 years of experience as a veterinary surgeon, Trout uses his rich and unique experiences and case files to bring an unmatched authenticity to his characters and plot. The result is an unforgettable and winsome read.
