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.


If you love dogs and the people who take care of them, if you think that two men who start out with opposing interests can find a way to compromise and be happy, and if you're looking for an emotional read that is as heartbreaking as it is sweet, then you will probably love this novel as much as I do. It's funny, true-to-life, and touched me deeply.

--The Novel Approach
This author never fails to deliver a wonderful story, whether it's scary, heartbreaking, or heartwarming. A simple concept, with a very interesting twist and turn of events, and wonderful, three-dimensional characters from Mr. Reed makes this one a winner. If you've ever had a pet or wanted one, and if you have a soft spot in your heart for men who love animals, I highly encourage you to pick this one up. You won't be disappointed.

Lost and Found is a sweet and simple story about a dog merging the lives of two men while igniting a spark of love at the same time.
--Book Unfunk
This beautifully heartwarming story is artfully crafted and I soaked this book up within two days. I love the awkwardness and internal dialogue Reed portrays as the characters are getting to know each other. If you understand the deep love you can feel for your fellow animals and are ready to be moved by serendipity and fate, then Lost and Found by Rick R. Reed is not to be missed.
