About the book:

     After years abroad, Garrison Brown finds himself at the home of his beloved grandmother who has just passed away. He must sort out her belongings, including six cats who need new homes. While he hopes to dispense with the task quickly – especially since he is severely allergic to cats – his grandmother’s instructions don’t allow for speed. She has left some challenging requirements for the future homes of her furry friends.

     Can he match the cats with the perfect new owners? And is it possible that he might meet his own match along the way?

     He felt his face flushing as Cara opened the door. Wearing a garnet-colored knit dress and with her dark hair pinned up, she looked even prettier than he remembered. Suddenly he wished he’d thought to bring a hostess gift. Like a cat.

My review:

     This is an engaging Christmas tale.

     I loved the core of characters that Melody created for this wonderful story. Garrison is delightful and surrounded by wonderful friends. Most of them are people that he meets during the search for homes for the cats left by his grandmother. It is great to see the growth in Garrison himself throughout this book.

     It is quick and very entertaining book to read, an absolutely captivating story. The development of the plot is incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. I’m giving this book a 5 star rating.
