About the Book:

Bestselling author Sheila Roberts brings us a humorous, heartwarming Christmas novel about a matchmaking cat who brings a couple together just in time for the holidays.When a guy is in trouble, he starts making deals with his Creator…and Ambrose the cat is no exception. In danger of losing his ninth and final life, Ambrose makes a desperate plea.  He’ll do anything—anything!—if he can just survive and enjoy a nice long, final life. His prayer is answered when a stranger comes along and saves him, and now it looks like he has to hold up his end of the bargain.

The stranger turns out to be a fire fighter named Zach, the quintessential commitment- phobe who’s in need of some serious romantic help. If Ambrose can just bring Zach together with Merilee, the nice lady who works at Pet Palace, it’s bound to earn him a healthy ninth life.  Unfortunately for Ambrose, his mission is a lot harder than he ever anticipated.  Now it’s going to take all his feline wiles—and a healthy dose of Christmas magic—to bring them all together in time for the holidays.


There is more to come with this review, but let's just say I completely enjoyed this book!  I love Christmas novels and this one was both a pleasure to read and listen to!  Yes, I read the hard copy of this book as well as listening to the audio version.  Both kept me highly entertained and hooked on the story.  Though I'm not a fan of cats due to allergies, I enjoyed this book.  It is safe to say cat lovers everywhere will love this novel, but I think there is so much more to it than it's title.  The main characters are pleasant and easy to like.  I imagined them as being someone I could be friends with.  This novel has plenty of charm, smooth writing and entertainment for book lovers everywhere.  Full of romance and pets with personality, it's a book you won't want to miss this Christmas.
