The Christmas Cat | Melody Carlson

Today I’m reviewing The Christmas Cat, by Melody Carlson.

Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:

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


When I began reading this story, I just had to laugh…

Just imagine a single guy who inherits six fussy felines from his grandmother; there are restrictions on who they can be given to…

Who could possibly place all six cats with happy homes before Christmas?

Then it really hit my funny bone – hard – when everyone heard a rumor that those who took a cat also received a million dollars! Talk about incentive!

Garrison makes certain that the folks who receive one of his grandmother’s cats knows the rules – and not to expect a million dollars. After being sure the cat is happy and everything is working out, the owners do receive a check!

If you’re asking yourself how a man who is allergic to cats can find peace, home and happiness – then just read the book because I’m NOT going to spoil it for you!
