“An uplifting story with tremendous heart. I couldn’t put it down.”
—Helen Brown
Joal Derse Dauer was donating blankets at a local no-kill shelter when an injured and despondent dog caught her eye. With three “fur babies” already at home, Joal wasn’t looking to adopt another dog. But there was something special about Sadie . . .
With patience, hope, and plenty of love, Joal saw her canine companion grow in strength and joy. And before long, she discovered that sweet Sadie had transformed her life in ways she never could have imagined.
Joyous and inspiring, Saving Sadie is a triumphant story about the power of unconditional love and second chances—for humans and animals alike.
“A triumphant tale of second chances that shows how patience, hope, compassion and love can truly transform lives.” —Modern Dog
“I fell in love with Sadie as you will, too.”—Fern Michaels
“Saving Sadie will lift your spirit and open your heart. A must-read.”—Jodee Blanco
“What a wonderful book—moving and inspirational, touching and heartwarming.”

“What if a wheezing, sneezing, allegedly house-trained, ticking time bomb of an orphan pug is the key to helping a family feel at home again, after an arsonist set their house—and life—on fire? If you asked me, I would have said it’s a bad idea; we can do better. Unfortunately no one asked me, and The Pug List is my family’s story.”
In the fire’s aftermath of insurance battles royal, rebuilding plans, parenting in the face of life’s hard questions and a scorching case of post-traumatic stress, now is absolutely the worst possible time to adopt a dog. But to Alison’s seven-year-old daughter, Eden, it’s the perfect time—and The Relentless Campaign begins.
Until one day Alison peeks inside Eden’s diary—dubbed “The Pug List”—and realizes in one fell swoop that her girl’s heart is on the line, and resistance is futile (“The pugs make me happy FOREVER.”).
Enter “Outrageous” Oliver, and the hilarity, healing, and irresistible hope that follows.

“‘Okay listen up everyone,’ I said, zipping up my high visibility jacket. ‘It will be most effective to comb the local area by taking a village each.’ I told my team as I traced my finger across the map. My experience as a former copper was invaluable for our search. We weren’t looking for a missing person though – we had a dog to find.”
Any pet owner knows the agonizing panic when their beloved furry family member goes missing, but Tom Watkins, former policeman turned pet detective, is on hand to reunite our animal companions with their owners.
From recording the owner’s voice to lure cats from their hiding place, to organizing a fly-over to raise the profile of missing Toby the terrier, from emptying the contents of the owner’s vacuum to tempt in the missing animal with the scent, to organizing a Crimewatch-style reconstruction of a dog-snatching on national TV, Tom will do whatever it takes to get the nation’s pets home, safe and sound. The Real Pet Detective is the story of 20 years of missing pets, their owners and Tom’s team of expert pet investigators.
