The Purrfect Pet Sitter

by Carol Thomas

Introducing Lisa Blake, the purrfect pet sitter!
When Lisa Blake’s life in London falls apart, she returns to her hometown rebranding herself as ‘the purrfect pet sitter’ – which may or may not be false advertising as she has a rather unfortunate habit of (temporarily) losing dogs!

But being back where she grew up, Lisa can’t escape her past. There’s her estranged best friend Flick who she bumps into in an embarrassing encounter in a local supermarket. And her first love, Nathan Baker, who, considering their history, is sure to be even more surprised by her drunken Facebook friend request than Lisa is.

As she becomes involved in the lives of her old friends Lisa must confront the hurt she has caused, discover the truth about her mysterious leather-clad admirer, and learn how to move forward when the things she wants most are affected by the decisions of her past.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

4.5 STARS

What a charming and delightful read! I really needed something to lighten my mood, and this book definitely did that!!!!

The book is mostly told from Lisa and her childhood friend, Flick’s, POV. Lisa had a life in London, but that all fell apart, and she returns to her hometown working as a “purrfect pet sitter,” although some of her furry friends give her the slip. She is adjusting to life back home, but she feels like so many of the residents have gone on with their lives. She doesn’t feel like she fits in anymore.

Flick has also dealt with happiness and disappointments. She is a harried but for the most part a happy and content mother. She has a good relationship with her husband. However, when she runs into her old friend, Lisa, she is instantly brought back to a time when her best friend hurt her greatly, and they haven’t been in contact in years.

As much as this was a light and sweet read, there were also moments about real life…being a mother and wife, losing touch with a lost love and the rekindling of that romance, forgiving old hurts, getting to know loved ones from your past, and loving them for the people they are now.

I am so glad I picked up this little gem of a book. It was full of love, humor, and great secondary characters, even the furry ones! It was a great way to spend my afternoon!!!

Excerpt

The time had come. No more delays were afforded Esmeralda. She had to face Griffin. Inhaling a deep breath, she met his steady gaze. There was no anger, no disappointment. He didn’t even look perplexed. He looked determined.
Very determined.
Frustration etched his handsome features as Griffin quietly said, “I wanted to be angry with you but…”
“But?”
“When I saw you standing in in the shadows, all I could think was, dear God, I want to kiss her. To hell with my honor, to hell with what was right and proper. To hell with what was best for you. I just wanted to kiss you.”

Other Books by Amelia Grey

It’s never a good thing when a young rake’s wicked ways come back to haunt him. Just the Duke of Griffin, the Duke of Hawksthorn, and the Duke of Rathbourne. The trio made an ill-fated wager four years ago that they are still trying to live down. But there is little hope of accomplishing that since an anonymous writer of a weekly scandal sheet keeps the fiasco very much alive. And, rumor has it some members of Society are determined to go to great lengths to make sure the chickens have come home to roost for the three dukes notoriously known as The Rakes of St. James.

Chasing Him (A Bishop Brothers Novel) by Kennedy Fox Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

Model: Zack Salaun
Cover Design by: RBA Designs
Photographer: Wander Aguiar Photography

 

John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.

Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.

Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.

That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting—except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.

Mila Carmichael has many talents—making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.

Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.

But that’s only the beginning.

While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.

About FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS (Warrior Fight Club #2, 8/7/18):

This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…

Resisting her only makes him want her more…

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, she’s grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can’t wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she’s there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can’t have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what’s his.
