Review: The Christmas Cat by:Melody Carlson

 The Christmas Cat
About the Book:
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.
Humorous and heartwarming, this latest Christmas story from bestselling author Melody Carlson is the perfect gift for pet lovers and anyone in whose heart Christmas holds a special place.

My Review:
 Melody Carlson does it again with this Christmas quick read. With just under 200 pages, she is able to tell a very sweet story about a guy named Garrison who has to sort out his grandmothers belongings just weeks before Christmas. His grandmother left behind a few feline friends that he must find homes for, and he decides that is simple enough only to find out his grandmother left specific instructions for their disbursement.This is a very heart warming story that shows us that a genuine hope is not lost. The story brought tears to my eyes of pure joy as this woman long after her death was still a blessing to this world.

 The author of The Christmas Cat, is an award winning author and rightfully so. She can spin out the most beloved books. Her books are very cozy types of reads and this one is just perfect for this time of year. I love Melody Carlson and you will find many different types of genres in her repertoire.
