The Christmas Cat Review!!

The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

Book Description:
After years abroad, Garrison Brown returns home to Vancouver to build a new life. When his beloved grandmother passes away a few weeks before Christmas, Garrison goes to her house to sort out her belongings, including six cats who need new homes. While Garrison hopes to dispense with the task quickly, his grandmother's instructions don't allow for speed. She has left Garrison with some challenging requirements for /the future homes of her furry friends--plus a sizeable monetary gift for the new owners. Garrison's job is to match the cats with the right owners without disclosing the surprise gift. Along the way, he may just meet someone who can make him stay.

Humorous and heartwarming, this latest Christmas story from bestselling author Melody Carlson is the perfect gift for pet lovers and anyone in whose heart Christmas holds a special place.

My Opinion:
Great read!!!  I REALLY loved and enjoyed this book!  It's quirky and fun!  The messages throughout are fabulous to name a few: realizing we need to make time to visit those we love before they reach heaven before us and to not give up on people even if they've given up themselves!  Melody really knows how to write about cats, I could just picture them!!!  Each with their own personality and attitudes!  I LOVE how Garrison re-homes them and how Melody writes it so you can "see" God's hand and help through all of his provisions!  I laugh so hard at some of these scenes and got emotionally involved with these characters {Garrison frustrated me at times when he wouldn't open his eyes and I do wish he had remembered to pray about things more but I digress :) }.  Melody paces it nicely to!  There were times when I couldn't put it down, but also when I finally needed to make myself go to sleep I could find a nice stopping place.  Those of you who read my reviews regularly know that I LOVE Christmas novellas and I haven't been disappointed yet! :)  A fabulous, fun Christmas read that I highly recommend!

Sadly even though I really enjoyed this book I'm having some trouble come up with some songs that fit... I'll keep searching and working at it but right now all I've got is one: "Silent Night" by Casting Crowns
Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC

*I requested and received this book from Revell for the purpose of reviewing it.  This in no way affected my opinion and the above are my true thoughts and feelings about The Christmas Cat. ~ASC
