The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

The Christmas CatBook Description:
After years abroad, Garrison Brown returns home to Vancouver to build a new life. When his beloved grandmother passes away a few weeks before Christmas, Garrison goes to her house to sort out her belongings, including six cats who need new homes. While Garrison hopes to dispense with the task quickly, his grandmother's instructions don't allow for speed. She has left Garrison with some challenging requirements for the future homes of her furry friends--plus a sizeable monetary gift for the new owners. Garrison's job is to match the cats with the right owners without disclosing the surprise gift. Along the way, he may just meet someone who can make him stay.
Humorous and heartwarming, this latest Christmas story from bestselling author Melody Carlson is the perfect gift for pet lovers and anyone in whose heart Christmas holds a special place.

My Thoughts:
Good, fast Christmas book.  Garrison has come home, but when his grandmother passes away, she leaves him a task to do.  He is hoping to get the job taken care of quickly but grandmother has other ideas.  Each of her 6 cats must be found the perfect home, without relaying to the potential owner of the cat the gift they are to receive with the cat.  
I really liked the part about the cats and the fact that it wasn't a simple task Garrison had to perform.  He had to find the perfect home for each cat, and that wasn't exactly easy.  The problem I had was the romantic element.  It just didn't feel real at all to me, honestly it was a bit forced.  That being said, the story itself was still good and I did enjoy it. This was a 3/5 for me.  Pretty good Christmas read.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
