The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
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.

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?

Melody Carlson’s The Christmas Cat is yet another enjoyable, feel-good story for this holiday season, perfect for a chilly afternoon spent curled up on the couch. Though I am not necessarily a cat lover, the unique circumstances Garrison’s grandmother leaves for him kept me interested. And as the story progressed, I enjoyed both (surprisingly) getting to know the cats and seeing how Garrison connected the six different cats with various households in the neighborhood. Overall, The Christmas Cat is fun and cute with underlying themes of dreams and faith, and I would recommend it for readers looking for a quick, sweet holiday story.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of The Christmas Cat and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
