I’m a sucker of stories that have cute cats included and there was no shortage of that in Codi Gary’s A Cat Café Christmas. The quirky mannerisms of these furry critters made me laugh out loud, along with the many giggle-worthy moments that happen in the story. I especially loved the cat adoption bios. They were so creative and very adorable.
On the other hand, although the main characters’ backstories seemed to be very complicated; Kara’s especially was resolved a bit too quickly for something that was pretty intense.
I heard the narration was up for debate before I started the audiobook portion, but I actually didn’t mind it and overall, I enjoyed this story and all the Christmas components of it made it even more likable for me.
Veterinarian and animal lover Kara Ingalls needs a Christmas miracle. Opening the Meow and Furrever Cat Café to find loving homes for adorable, adoptable cats was a dream come true—but with more cats than customers, it’s quickly turning into a nightmare. If Kara can’t figure out some way to get the café out of the red, it won’t last past the holidays.
Marketing guru Ben Reese may be annoyingly smart and frustratingly bossy, but when he hatches a plan to put the café in the “green” by Christmas, Kara realizes that she’d be a fool to turn down his help. And so what if he turns out to be an excellent problem solver and nerdy-hot—he can’t even handle fostering one little kitten. She needs to keep their relationship professional and focus on saving the cafe.
But if Ben and Kara can set aside their differences—and find homes for all the cats by Christmas—they might discover that, by risking their hearts, they’ll have their own purr-fect holiday . . . together.
