A very sweet romantic read, perfect for cat-lovers everywhere. Roxy is a sympathetic heroine, and Hartman keeps the pace moving in the book. The cats make great minor characters, too!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is such a wonderful book..Highly recommend it to all cat lover's..Roxy runs a cat shelter and finds romance with a volunteer..His young son is serving community service there and is afraid of cats(there's a story around that)..Roxy is kind of klutzy and had me laughing out loud with some of her antics..Just a fun,easy read..Was this review helpful?

If you love cats, you'll love this story. The main character, Roxy, owns a cat shelter. She meets a single parent (Max) whose son (Derek) must fulfill community service work at the shelter. Unfortunately the boy had a bad experience with a cat in his childhood and they terrify him. Although Max, Roxy and Derek become close, Derek's phobia stands in the way of them pulling together as a family.
Since I love felines, I really enjoyed hearing about the different kinds of cats that end up in the shelter. As a cat owner, I could relate to all the work involved in taking care of cats. I particularly enjoyed the lengths that Roxy would go to show the cats a good time. I wanted to take several of the kitties home, or at least stroke their beautiful fur.
As I read, I kept rooting for Derek to make a breakthrough in his phobia. I also wanted Roxy and Max to end up together. Does the tale end purrfectly, or is there a catastrophe in the making? I'm not saying, but "Better Than Catnip" did make my tail wag.
