Finding Riley

By Dan Walsh

An unexpected surprise brings the Mitchell family of Savannah a chance to experience the Christmas trip of their dreams. An unexpected disappointment threatens to turn it into the worst Christmas of their lives. John Finch and his friend Alfred live in the woods. Been doing it for decades. He likes wintering in Florida, but this year’s been particularly harsh. Between the cold, freezing rain and terrifying lightning storms, John’s starting to wonder how much more of this lifestyle he can take. A new friend enters the picture and changes everything. Kim Harper, the dog trainer introduced in Rescuing Finley, is contacted by a billionaire philanthropist seeking her help with a new dog training project that will help the homeless. Is he for real? And is her co-worker right? Does this rich, handsome man’s interest in Kim go much deeper than her dog-training skills? Bestselling author Dan Walsh is known for page-turning, character driven novels. Fans of Dan’s other novels, especially Rescuing Finley, as well as dog-lovers everywhere will love Finding Riley. Coming in 2017: Book 3 in the Forever Home Series – Saving Parker


What started as a very special Christmas trip at Disney World turned sad for Jeffrey and his family on the way back home. Riley ran off into the woods and appeared to just get swallowed up by them.

While Jeffrey is devastated, Riley finds a way to survive the woods, and ends up in a homeless camp. Lives there are changed for the better by Riley. But will Riley ever get to go home to Jeffrey?

Eventually many lives are changed, but Riley ends up in a pet shelter. While many of the homeless are going to have a new home, it appears that Riley won’t get to go home. Will Jeffrey and his family have the worst Christmas ever?

Mr. Walsh has given us another great story. I’m looking forward to Book 3 of the Forever Home Series. Thank you, Mr. Walsh, for these heart touching stories.
