ARC Review: A Cat Cafe Christmas by Codi Gary
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.
It always seems weird to me to when I'm reading Christmas stories in October. But that's the game reviewers have to play. Happily, I love all things Christmas so I've gotten over it.
Since I do love all things Christmas I couldn't wait to read A Cat Cafe Christmas. It also didn't hurt that I'm a cat lover. The funny thing is that my cat is all black. She's more of a Halloween kitty than Christmas.
I enjoy Codi Gary and haven't read her in a while so I grabbed this up when I saw the arc become available and I'm so happy I did. It turned out to be a sweet holiday read. Perfect to warm your heart for the holidays. I loved the friendships that both the main characters shared with their friends. They each really needed someone to be in their corners when life knocked them down.
And believe me when I say they have both been knocked down.
You'll love Ben. He is the sweetest, nicest guy you'll ever meet. He is still so sad about what happened to him and is having trouble dealing with it. I don't blame him at all. I will say that I wouldn't be as forgiving as him.
Kara's past will also make you want to hurt someone. She's gone through a lot for most of her life and thankfully had some key people in her life that have made it possible for her to become the person she has. She's so nice even when others aren't to her. I love how much she cares for the kitties in her charge and the way she moves from one story to the next without finishing the prior one.
There is so much more I'd love to talk to you all about but I don't want to ruin the story for you. You really need to experience it for yourself. I will say that if I was Ben I would have made people pay a little bit more before forgiveness. But that's just me. What can I say, I can be mean.
