Suggested Age:12+ Genre:Christmas, Christian Fiction

I LOVED this book so so much.   Now, I’m not what someone could accuse of being a crazy cat lady. I do own some cats but I’m far from being the lady who buys cat sweaters and cat jewelry and cat plates.  Having said that—this book nearly made me feel like one of those types.  

 I laughed so hard while reading and I fell in love with Harry from the very start.   I don’t see how anyone could dislike this book.  Melody Carlson does a great job with writing light comedic romance.   She’s quickly becoming a favorite author for those types of contemporary novels because her characters come off so vibrant and real.  

 If you’re looking for a cute story to read during the holidays (or any other day) this is a really good one.

"After years abroad, Garrison Brown returns home to Vancouver to build a new life. When his beloved grandmother passes away a few weeks before Christmas, Garrison goes to her house to sort out her belongings, including six cats who need new homes. While Garrison hopes to dispense with the task quickly, his grandmother's instructions don't allow for speed. She has left Garrison with some challenging requirements for the future homes of her furry friends--plus a sizeable monetary gift for the new owners. Garrison's job is to match the cats with the right owners without disclosing the surprise gift. Along the way, he may just meet someone who can make him stay.

Humorous and heartwarming, this latest Christmas story from bestselling author Melody Carlson is the perfect gift for pet lovers and anyone in whose heart Christmas holds a special place."
