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.

I couldn't believe it once I downloaded this book to my new Nook!! It REALLY is only 79 pages. What a rip off for 9.99. I want a refund also!!!!

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 book was a short story not a full length novel. It was not worth the high price!

I love her books by I was so disappointed that is was only 79 pages and I paid $9.99 for it. I normally don't mind paying that much for her books but not for 79 pages!

I enjoy reading Debbie Macomber but 9.99 for 79 pages. Nook needs to credit anyone who bought this book and they need to include the number of pages in book info.

Was very disappointed by the length of the book. Paid way to much for Nook version.

I am VERY disappointed I spent ten dollars on a book that took me less than an hour to read and that I didn't find out until after I purchased the book that it isn't even a new story. It was originally published some time ago. It was a cute story but NOT worth the price I paid for it. I think the people at the publishing company should be ashamed of themselves for overcharging on an old story and extremely quick read just because the author is a good sell.

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. Harriet Klausner

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.

Because of all the NEGATIVE feedback....I will NOT purchase this book!!! And I usually LOVE her books! But it seems this one is not woth thr price!

This eBook is almost $10. I can tell by the reviews it got that everyone was as surprised as I was at how short it was. Personally, for someone who reads as much as I do it was a rip off and will definitely be more careful in the future. The Nook is supposed to be saving us money or so I thought. I think B&N should list the number of pages before a person has to buy it. I have never seen any of this author's books this short. Based on the reviews I read I think everyone agrees.

If i were you i would not wast your money on that. Get a good book that will last you a while. This one wont last you to long and just nothing good with the book

I am a fan of Debbie Macomber and I liked the sample pages. I agreed to purchase/buy and then, there were only 79 pages in the book. The story was good but it was the worst $9.99 that I have ever spent. If I had known that it was only 79 pages, I would not have agreed to the price. I would have waited until I could check it out at the public library.

I was so excited thinking this was the next "New" book from Debbie Macomber. When I purchased, I immediately started to read. Couldnt believe the price I paid for such a short story. This story could certainly been stretched into a much longer version for this price. It's the first time I was truely disappointed in anything I got of Debbie Macombers. Such a waste.

The story line was just ok.....not a lot of meat to the story. I will never buy an ebook again without checking reader reviews. I love Debbie Macomber but will be wary before buying another of her books. The price was extremely high for a book only 79 pages. Ridiculous!!!! So if you want to spend ten dollars for a book you can read in a couple of hours.....thi is the book for you!

Each story went quickly allowing for short reads. As alwasys, simple and sweet.

No where in the preview does it say you are paying $9.99 for a 79 page story. On top of the price, the story was very choppy and haphazardly edited. I don't know if the fault lies with Barnes & Noble or if Debbie Macomber is getting greedy but, this whole book left a bad taste in my mouth.
