Overview

Lacey Lancaster always longed to be a wife and mother. However, after a painful divorce, she just wants to lay low in her charming San Francisco apartment with her beautiful Abyssinian cat, Cleo.

Everything would be wonderful if it wasn't for her impossible neighbor, Jack Walker, who argues day and night with his girlfriend . . . and whose cat, Dog, is determined to get Cleo to succumb to his feline advances. And when Lacey discovers that Cleo's in the family way, she's furious that neither Jack nor his amorous animal seems terribly upset about it.

But things aren't always what they appear. Jack's "girlfriend" isreally his sister—and his intentions toward Lacey are quite honorable (though she's not sure about Dog). And out of the blue, Lacey is discovering the tender joy of falling in love all over again.

I wish I had taken the time to read all the reviews instead of just relying on the authors name and the star count. This was the biggest waste of time and money. Horribly written, and grammatical and spelling errors abounded. I ended up skimming the first book repeating "you've got to be kidding me" in my head. The "plot" was ridiculous and not even plausible. I didnt even make it past the second page of the second book. Horrible buy! I wish I could get my money back! If there was an option for NO stars, I'd have chosen it!

Usually, I love Debbie Macomber's books but this is the publisher's attempt to capitalize on her popularity. Her portion of the book is about 80 pages and the story is weak and not well developed. It was a waste of money and time.

this is a two-fer. one a lighthearted romance between neighbors. she thinks he is arguing with his lady love about moving into his apartment, when in fact it is his sister. love blooms. the other is another of debbie's light hearted romances as only debbie can write them.

This book is so slurpy. It seems there is a handful of authors, including McComber who always follow the same predicable.storyline. Throw in a little drama and bingo out comes a book. Not my cup of tea.

This story line was short and sweet. The characters were true to life on happenings in their lives. You could almost visualize how people meet and struggle through changes in your life.

I've read a couple of other Debbie Macomber's books and found them pretty good reads. This one was ridiculous. The main character was dense. The story silly. And, I didn't realize it was a short story. Not worth the money at all.
