Kicking off the Romance Month with a favorite author!

February is the Romance Month, and there's nothing I like better than a good romance! One of my favorite authors is Debbie Macomber! She is consistently a wonderful writer and I can assuredly recommend her books as being well written and 100% romantic!

Her latest book is "Family Affair," originally released as a magazine story in 1994, but is back as a delightful romance that will be sure to please!

Sometimes it take a little nudge from our furry friends to get love moving in the right direction, and for Lacy Lancaster that shove came in the form of a combined effort from her beautiful purebred Abyssian cat Cleo and a ragtag cat named Dog.

Lacey was devastated by a particularly nasty divorce and had sworn off having anything to do with men, maybe forever. Even if men included her incredibly handsome and sauve next-door neighbor Jack Walker. But Lacey is forced to communicate with Jack after Jack’s cat, a cat named Dog, begins pitching woo and Lacey’s cat Cleo ends up becoming a momma-to-be.

Jack has admired his neighbor for nearly an entire year from afar, and uses this new situation to insist on being partially responsible for Cleo’s welfare. He also this excuse to visit and flirt with Lacey, but Lacey is determined not to fall for his charms, especially since she can hear him fighting with his girlfriend through the thin apartment walls. But when that girlfriend turns out to be Jack’s sister Sarah, the doors to the romance department swing wide open and Jack becomes even more determined to win Lacey’s affections.

As the couple gets to know each other and grow closer, outside influences from work, Jack’s flaky sister, and well-meaning friends threaten to divide them, but with a little luck, a lot of hopes and dreams, and  batch of new kitties will encourage love to prevail.

“Family Affair” is a classically sweet, enchanting tale of romance that is consistent for the Queen of Contemporary Romance, Debbie Macomber. This short, but “purrfectly” pleasing story will delight Macomber’s fans as well as pet admirers everywhere, and would make a “purrrfect” Valentines Day gift!

My thanks to Harper Collins for supplying the review copy of this book!  I was not compensated for my opinion.
