About the book: Rags, the klepto cat, performs a Christmas miracle. A spellbinding story of love, hope, and a child’s innocent Christmas dreams. When Savannah Ivey agrees to teach photography to a group of at-risk children, she doesn’t expect a sweet-spirited little crippled girl to steal her heart and become an important part of her family. Even Rags, the kleptomaniac cat, is captivated by the child named Marissa. When she goes missing, everyone, including Rags, experiences the pain of loss. Detective Craig Sledge fears that Marissa’s unscrupulous, non-custodial father may be behind her disappearance and the search escalates into high gear. When even a pack of rescue dogs can’t find the child, the detective turns to Rags and everyone prays for a Christmas miracle. Can Rags succeed where the others have failed? While this story involves some intense drama, it will also make you smile and even laugh out loud. Bring out the tissues for the beautiful ending. A Picture Purrfect Christmas is one of those feel-good holiday stories you’ll want to read over and over again.
My comments: This book appealed to me on many levels: the mom in me, the teacher in me, the kid-lover in me, and the animal lover in me! If you are looking for a great holiday read, may I suggest this book? The story includes enough mystery to keep you going as well. The characters are very likable and sweet. A mystery solving cat is a little bit of a different twist which is intriguing. If you love animals, this would be a good book for you – if you love cats, dogs, and horses, especially. Patricia Fry is a new author to me, but I will be looking for more of her books in the future!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
