LOST AND FOUND by Jaqueline Sheehan

LOST AND FOUND by Jaqueline Sheehan, (c) 2007. Of course the black Lab on the cover drew me to the book at the thrift store in Fiesterville. I paid a whole buck for each book I bought that day! Rocky, short for Roxanne is a 38 year old widow who abandons her old life to grieve for a year, taking a leave of absence from her psychology job in Boston, Mass. Ricky ends up in Maine on a little island and gets a part time job as a Animal Control Warden. She has some experience with animals since her late husband was a veterinarian. So here she is getting comfortable with the idea of being a widow and meeting the island’s residents a few at a time, not too overwhelming for a woman getting used to being alone again. Once day she got a call about an injured Labrador retriever and he appears to have a handmade arrow lodged in his chest and she ends up being his foster owner as he heals. This brings about her interest in archery where she meets an interesting man who teaches her archery part  American Indian. There’s also the black minister who hired her and her neighbor Tess a retired teacher. Then there’s Melissa, an anorexic teen who has lusty thoughts of females instead of males and maybe not coming to terms with it very well.  There’s other characters in the book, most of therm nice I suppose, except for the guy who shot Lloyd, the Lab. A good book.
