The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

Saturday, November 15, 2014

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.

My Thoughts:

I am not a cat person, I am clearly a dog person. However the cat pictured on the cover captivated me and I was thrilled to be able to read it for review.

Garrison's grandmother has passed away and he goes home to settle her estate. This is not the "usual" probate, after his grandfather died, and after he went abroad, his grandmother began collecting cats. That may not be a problem for most, but Garrison is allergic, and his grandmother has instructed that he find homes for these cats, and his grandmother has left him a set of guidelines for finding homes for said cats.

I loved this book from beginning to end. Melody not only creates great characters, the cats are characters too. I knew nothing about a Maine Coon Cat, which is the cat on the cover, because of this book I learned about this beautiful cat.

Christmas is 41 days away, and I know for some reading Christmas books before December seems way early. This would make a great Christmas gift for the reader in your family.

I highly recommend it!!
