Written by professional pet sitter Christi Grace, this book is an anthology of stories about her career of caring for other peoples’ pets when they are away from home – as you can imagine, she has seen a little bit of everything!

A Sweet, Humorous Celebration of Love
Have you heard of Lincee Ray? I had too, but had never visited her blog or read her previous book “Why I Hate Green Beans”. Her new Christian Living release from Revell, “It’s a Love Story: From Happily to Ever After” sounded so cute that I decided to give it a try without much knowledge about its author – and I’m glad I did!
“We all love to be loved. And we love to fall in love.” With these words, Lincee invites her readers on an “unabashed celebration of that loving feeling. . . Continue reading
Sweet Stories of Canine Companions
I love animals, especially dogs—so much so, in fact, that I own two dogs of my own, work at an animal shelter, and am training to become a canine massage therapist!

Calling All Cat Lovers!
Does your family include any furry members of the feline variety? If your answer is yes, I have just the book for you! “Kit Kat and Lucy: The Country Cats Who Changed a City Girl’s World” by Lonnie Hull DuPont is a sweet and charming book about a pair of cats who truly fulfilled the title of their story, in both remarkable and everyday-ordinary ways.
Published by Revell in the autumn of 2016, this delightful true story is certain to bring a smile and perhaps a tear to anyone who has ever held a cat in their heart. A warning, however… For readers who do NOT have a soft spot for felines, well, this book might not be very amusing or heartwarming to you. After all, cats will be cats, for better or worse, and Kit Kat and Lucy are certainly no exception!
I am grateful to have received a copy of this book from Revell Reads, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
The Christmas Cat review
Several years ago prolific, award-winning author Melody Carlson began a tradition of writing a simple yet heartwarming Christmas novella each autumn, just in time for readers to enjoy as December approached.

Unexpectedly, The Christmas Cat opens with news of the death of Garrison Brown’s grandmother – and the uncovering of her will which places him as the sole guardian of Continue reading
