    This review was written for The Christmas Cat.
    "The Christmas Cat" by Melody Carlson was the first Christmas book that I read this year. It's a very short read, but true to Carlson's style, packed with several great plots! I've received a lot of teasing for reading this book...I am not an animal person, but that didn't keep me from enjoying it!

    I've been reading Carlson since I was ten or eleven years old. If her name is on the cover I'm going to give it a try for sure. We all have our favorite authors and she has been one of mine for years.

    Let's talk about her latest release and then I'll tell you about my Gingerbread Hot Cocoa recipe...

    "The Christmas Cat" is mostly set in present day Vancouver, WA and begins just before Thanksgiving. A man named Garrison is the main character and he begins the book with a few things to sort out. After being a missionary in Africa, he returns to the states and finds himself single, living with a buddy, and without a job. To complicate matters even more, he ends up losing his Grandmother and becoming the executor of her estate which includes six cats who are going to need homes.

    Garrison's dilemma unfolds in Vancouver with a fair amount of humor, a smidgen of romance, and some good lessons that we can all relate to along the way.

    You'll become pretty fond of Ruby (the sweet older neighbor lady) and I hate to admit it, but even the cats themselves!

    Sometimes you just need to read a good story and "The Christmas Cat" is exactly that. It's not one that will make you cry. The humor won't have you rolling your eyes. It really is the perfect book to enjoy with a hot drink on a cold winter day!

    Grab a copy of "The Christmas Cat" today and be sure to tell me what you think!

    The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson was a warm, sweet and fluffy novel. I found it delightful. Being a major cat person I did find I was more concerned about the fate of the kitties than the romantic twists and turns. It is a novel that has it all, Christmas, cats and cuddles, what could be better?

    If you are like me you and you collect new Christmas novels every year, you will want to get the Christmas Cat. By the way it is perfect, notice I refrained from saying purrfect, book to read in front of the fire with a little Michael Buble in the background, hot chocolate and pumpkin cake just saying. I want to thank Revell Group who gave me this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I look forward to Melody Carlson's Christmas novellas every year. Each book is full of holiday spirit, emotionally relevant, and just the right length for an afternoon or evening of reading by the fire. The covers are always spot-on, as well. The Christmas Cat focuses on Garrison Brown. After his grandmother passes away, he's left with the arduous task of finding perfect homes for each of her 6 cats. His grandmother left very specific instructions regarding the cats, and Garrison finds there is much he didn't know about her. Carlson has again woven a heartwarming tale that will be enjoyed by all age groups. She kept the story lighthearted while also addressing heavier matters. I highly recommend The Christmas Cat for all cat lovers, Carlson fans, and those who enjoy holiday novellas. Warning: this story may cause you to run out and get a cat!

    This review was written for The Christmas Cat.
    Garrison Brown was taken in by his grandmother when he was only twelve-years-old. When he went to Uganda to dig water wells his grandmother began taking in cats. When she passes away her will stipulates that Garrison has to find homes for each of her six beloved felines BUT there is a list of very detailed criteria that each potential pet owner must meet in order to pass the adoption process. With what Garrison considers very severe cat allergies he finds it even more difficult to follow his grandmother's last wishes no matter how good her intentions.

    I have to say that I am a huge cat lover so I completely get Garrison's grandmother's mindset when it comes to finding homes for her feline friends. Garrison's dislike of cats rankled me at first because he just didn't get it. He couldn't understand how anyone could have such a love for the very creatures that he considered hazardous to his health. But as he spent more and more time taking care of them he gradually warmed up to them, especially to Harry. It was wonderful to see how a few cats could touch the lives of so many and completely transform one. Throw in a little romance and it's a real winner. I really enjoyed this book. I felt the storyline was unique and very well written. The stipulations for adopting a cat were pretty strict and thorough and I felt it made the book much more interesting. It's a very light-hearted story and cat lovers will enjoy it immensely, although you don't have to be a cat lover to love this book! This is a book worth reading and I am looking forward to more books from Melody Carlson!

    This review was written for The Christmas Cat.
    Short and simple, The Christmas Cat is a quick read and the narrative moves along at a pleasant pace. The instructions from Garrisons grandmother are a tad too quirky, creating a story that is a bit odd to read. Indeed, some of the requirements are completely bizarre and unrealistic, making the book rather ridiculous at times. Many of the characters have enjoyable personalities, but Caras disrespect is unnerving and creates too much tension for a believable romantic relationship. However, the overall story is sweet in its own way, and lovers of animals are sure to appreciate the personalities of the cats. The book is not hard to get through but its lack of sustenance makes it one that will be easily forgotten after it is read. Perhaps suited for those who want a simple afternoon read that will put them in the Christmas spirit.

    I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
