The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson




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 is the award-winning author of over two hundred books with sales of more than six million.

My Review: 

The Christmas Cat was one of those stories that you wanted to get lost in. Can’t imagine how poor Garrison Brown felt when he walked into his deceased Grandmother’s home, and found the six cats. His eyes began to water and he had trouble breathing, and couldn’t wait to get to a room in the house with no cats. He had a terrible allergy to cats?
With the stipulation in his Grandmother’s will that he find a certain special home for each of the cats, Garrison sets about trying to fulfill her last request. With each of the cats comes a sizeable reward for making the perfect home for the kitty to live in. Somehow a wild rumor goes around that the cats come with a million dollar reward, now folks are coming out of the woodwork to have one.
There are some really cute stories that go along with each cat, and there are perfect homes out there for each of them, they just have to be found, and within the parameters of Grandma’s wishes. One of the perfect homes is found for what comes to be unbelievably Garrison’s favorite cat, but low and behold this person doesn’t fit into the requirements. Not Grandma’s but she does meet Garrison’s.
Come along and enjoy the spirit of Christmas with a little bit of misconception and romance. You won’t regret picking up this sweet quick read.
I received this book through Revell’s Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
