It's a very funny story that will have you laughing out loud suddenly and often (seriously, I scared my cat every time) at the antics of the kitty adjusting from being away from her human and a dog that thinks everything is an adventure. Whether it be trailing toilet paper, bringing down the Christmas tree or getting caught high up in a tree and being too scared to get Down by himself. Even I got a little tearful after the 3 days he'd been stuck up there without food, water and very very cold snowy nights. Enter tall, dark and handsome fireman Sam who saves the cat after days of trying to reach it, becomes the hero and then falls and gets a bad concussion for his efforts.
Of course he can't stay by himself. He needs someone to monitor him for 24 hours and...Wait for it...you guessed. She has him stay at her house and in that time they get to know each other and how much they have in common. If you are looking for a steamy love scene, sorry to disappoint. He only gets to first base Lol.
Ok, so it's at times very predictable. But the antics of the cat Lucifer and dog more than make up for it. Her brother had named the cat Lucifer because of his creative way of getting into mischief. She thought it was mean so she changed it to Luke. It doesn't take more than a few days of: picking up the Christmas tree Luke loves to climb, of Luke bringing presents that are still alive to her and letting them loose in the house after dropping the offering at her feet and generally getting into everything and anything he shouldn't be in, for her to realize that maybe her brother had aptly named the cat.
What really changes this from a predictable novel into a real book with characters you know, feel and understand is her brother. She is watching his cat because he was deployed to Afghanistan?-not sure-. He's been in the service for a number of years and this definitely isn't his first tour.
While standing in the city protecting the Afghanis people his regiment was attacted by a suicide bomber. When his family gets the notification they have no idea if he is alive, critically injured, being held hostage or dead. They are devastated.
Unfortunately, this scenario is all too familiar to us and the "rest of the world". Get out the tissues, you may need them. This wasn't just a story anymore. It could now be a non-fiction story about any of the 1000's of service men and women who are protecting our country so that we can be together with our families to celebrate the holidays. To everyone out there who is serving or has served for this country so that we might remained free, Thank you so much. Blessings to you all. You are my real heroes.
This Novel helped remind me that Christmas isn't just about giving or receiving gifts; standing in line for 10 hrs to get the black Friday special, seeing who makes the best sweet potato pie or eating until we feel we'll burst if we eat just one more bite. It's about all the family and friends that we do those things with and for. Sometimes I get so caught up in everything I need to do and wanting everything to be perfect that I'm so stressed out and don't take time to enjoy what we have. My daughter is always telling me that it doesn't need to be perfect, if we don't have time to make the corn bake it's fine and to not worry about making Christmas perfect because I want her to have the best memories. She just reminds me of who I was doing all this for. And the best memories aren't the decorations or the 10,000 lights up outside.
The best memories are; about grandma pinching their cheeks, still, even though they are all grown now, its listening for the millionth time to Uncle Bob's story about how he once caught a buck that was sooo big the butcher's scale broke and how each year it seems to get bigger and have a larger rack; it's about all of us squeezing together on the couches and putting giant pillows on the floor for the kids so we can watch the old movies of all the Christmases past and remember our loved ones that are no longer here and rejoicing about the newest little members of the family.
Life is too short to worry about all that and forget to enjoy the family I'm sharing this holiday with now. Because we never know how much time we will have left. So although the book wasn't perfect and was predictable at times I gave it a 4 because it touched me.
Why not a 5? The book ended with so much unresolved. I'm assuming that the story will continue in the next book. So much for a short break, let the cookies burn, I have to get that other book so I can find out what happened!
Blessings to you all, KJNOLAN
For anyone that has experienced having a cat in their life, this novella is almost like watching the cat videos on youtube. It has many cat quirks that make you smile, shake your head and laugh knowing a cat that has done those things or are grateful they haven't done. The novella isn't all centered around the cat, no matter what he may think, but it has a fun story of a girl trying to live out her dreams and finding someone to share those dreams with.
It's enjoyable seeing how Mary Kate tries to turn a Lucifer into a Luke….
This is a very short story, and I felt rushed as I read it. There wasn't time to develop the relationship between the characters, and the story was choppy.
if you want a quick, Christmas-themed read; however, this is the story for you!

cats are black. I wish I could have one. Highly recommend.
The ending seemed really rushed. Not sure if author didn't have any more to add or if wanted to be under a certain number of pages.Read more
