Lacey Lancaster has always longed to be a wife and mother. However, after a painful divorce, she decides it’s time to lay low for a while in her charming San Francisco apartment with her beautiful Abyssinian cat, Cleo.
Everything would be wonderful, except for her utterly impossible neighbor Jack Walker. When he’s not arguing day and night with his girlfriend, begging her to move in with him, he’s chasing down his cat named Dog, who seems determined to get Cleo to succumb to his feline advances.
Then Lacey discovers the awful truth—Cleo is in the family way and Dog’s to blame. She’s furious that neither Jack nor his amorous animal seem too upset about the situation.
But Lacey learns that things are not quite as they seem. Jack’s “girlfriend” is really his sister—and his intentions toward Lacey are very honorable. And though she’s not quite sure about Dog, Lacey begins to discover the tender joy of falling in love all over again.
My Comments: This morning I needed a quick, cheerful read while I was waiting to go to the dentist, and this book hit the mark! Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors. I’ve probably read most of what she has written over the past few years. This book seemed a little different from what I’ve read from her recently and then I discovered this was being republished from 1994.
I love, love, love the cover! The colors are gorgeous and one of the main characters is Cleo the cat! Books which include pets are fun. This book probably took a little over and hour to read. It is a novella, so don’t expect a hot and heavy plot or depth. If you are searching for a quick, light, easy, feel-good kind of read I would suggest this book!
