Product 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.

    Short and simple, The Christmas Cat is a quick read and the narrative moves along at a pleasant pace. The instructions from Garrisons grandmother are a tad too quirky, creating a story that is a bit odd to read. Indeed, some of the requirements are completely bizarre and unrealistic, making the book rather ridiculous at times. Many of the characters have enjoyable personalities, but Caras disrespect is unnerving and creates too much tension for a believable romantic relationship. However, the overall story is sweet in its own way, and lovers of animals are sure to appreciate the personalities of the cats. The book is not hard to get through but its lack of sustenance makes it one that will be easily forgotten after it is read. Perhaps suited for those who want a simple afternoon read that will put them in the Christmas spirit.

    I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a good Christmas story. I am a big cat lover so had a hard time at first liking Garrison. I have it hard when someone doesn't fall in love with most cats right away. It was almost understandable when you see that he is very allergic to cats. Then when you meet Cara you keep rooting for her. I received this from Revell Reads for a fair and honest opinion.

    Melody Carlson in her new book, The Christmas Cat published by Revell lets us experience Christmas with Garrison Brown.

    From the back cover: After years abroad, Garrison Brown finds himself at the home of his beloved grandmother who has just passed away. He must sort out her belongings, including six cats who need new homes. While he hopes to dispense with the task quicklyespecially since he is severely allergic to catshis grandmothers instructions dont allow for speed. She has left some challenging requirements for the future homes of her furry friends.

    Can he match the cats with the perfect new owners? And is it possible that he might meet his own match along the way?

    There is a reason why there are so many stories about Christmas on the television about this time and that reason is everyone loves a good story where the spirit of Christmas changes a person by healing them of old hurts to free them to be themselves. Thats why everyone wishes Christmas could last all year round. Melody Carlson knows how to write and she has delivered one of the finest Christmas stories yet. What do you do when you set out to settle your Grandmothers estate and she left very detailed instructions on how to place her six cats in new homes? What do you do when you have a severe allergy to cats? These are just some of the details Garrison has to deal with. It is not simple however it does get much more complicated as the story develops and blows up out of proportion. This is a lot of fun and opens the door for romance. This is the kind of story that can only happen at Christmas. The Christmas Cat is one sweet read that you might want to read twice and then keep it handy to read again next year.

    Well this book was NOTHING like I expected.

    I did not expect to fall madly in love with a quick, cute, little Christmas story but fall madly in love with "The Christmas Cat" - I did!

    WOW!



    When you start reading this story, visions of Brewsters Millions or The Bachelor (the movie from a few years ago NOT the crazy TV show) immediately fill your mind but this heartwarming and heart-healing story bears absolutely no resemblance to those wild and crazy adventures

    Though thats not to say the book holds no adventure.

    Who could possibly place a horde of cats with happy homes before Christmas without a little adventure.

    But there is no race other than the one our main character builds up for himself.

    Garrison has felt lost for so long and just when he thinks he has finally begun to find a place to fit, doubt sets in and he flees faster that a turkey at Thanksgiving.

    If youre asking yourself how a man who is allergic to cats can find peace, home and eventually his way in life because of cats, then you better just read the book because Im NOT going to spoil it for you!

    And thankfully, Melody has quite a few of these charming stories, so when youre done with this one, you can go track down her others too!

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
