In San Francisco, Lacey Lancaster knows she is in the midst of a self pitying and self cursing fit for being a coward afraid to tell her boss Mr. "take credit for her designs" Sullivan she deserved a raise and accolades. Her listener is her Abyssinian cat Cleo who understands abandonment as her two siblings were bought two weeks before Lacy saw her look pitiful in the pet shop window. Unlike her cheating lying ex Peter, she knows Cleo would not hurt her. Still though her dream of a family is temporarily shattered, Lacey, thanks to her feline friend, remains hopeful that one day she will meet her mate, an honest soul.

The other irritants making her life miserable are the man in the next door apartment Jack Walker and his rogue womanizing cat Dog. Jack drives Lacey crazy with his non-stop insistent raging at his beautiful girlfriend; demanding she move in with him. His beast is the neighborhood's worst womanizer trying to get into Cleo's purr. When Lacey realizes Cleo is off her feed, she learns why. Her cat is carrying and the absentee dad lives next door. Lacey goes next door confronting Jack and Dog; both listen with exasperating male bonding grins. Confusing Lacey further is when she learns who his girlfriend Sarah is and what their fighting like cats and dogs is about.

This is a fun throwback contemporary romance in which boy meets girl; girl dislikes boy; girl and boy fall in love. The entertaining novella stars two delightful protagonists supported by their cats and Sarah as love is in the San Francisco air.

Disappointed

There is nothing I hate more than ordering a book and finding out it is a reprint. I can't believe that they made this a hardcover. It is so tiny! I love Debbie Macomber but I feel completely ripped off.

    Too much money for such a short book.

    The 9.99 price was way too much for 70 some pages.

    This book was okay, but not as good as the usual Debbie Macomber.

    Way too short. Only 71 pages.

    This was a very disappointing book. Only 71 pages long. The other 8 pages are cat recipes. All the other books that I have read by Debbie Macomber has been anywhere from 250 to 350 pages. Just got started reading the book and it was over The story concept of the book was good just wasn't long enough.

    Disappointed

    This "book" is only 79 pages. Very small for the price. Is also a reprint of a previously printed book. Story not up to Debbie Macomber's normal depth of character. Will definitely read reviews before purchasing another!

    A short story...

    I was so shocked the story was so short! It didn't seem finished and not what I would expect from Debbie Macomber. I thought it must have come from a magazine. Very expensive book for what I got. I am not sure if I am more disappointed with the author or Barnes and Nobel. I feel ripped off and would like a refund.

    Good, but short

    This is a typical Debbie Macomber book. The characters are engaging, the storyline captures your heart, but it is more like a short story than a book. I would love to see another book like this one, with animals involved, but longer. I read this book in just under an hour. Great read, but it's over too soon.

    Be Careful

    The book is only 79 pages. I felt very ripped off. I am very disappointed in this. I am a big fan of Debbie but from now on, I will be careful as to what books of hers I purchase for the nook.
