From Harper Collins: Lacey Lancaster always longed to be a wife and mother. However, after a painful divorce, she just wants to lay low in her charming San Francisco apartment with her beautiful Abyssinian cat, Cleo.
Everything would be wonderful if it wasn’t for her impossible neighbor, Jack Walker, who argues day and night with his girlfriend . . . and whose cat, Dog, is determined to get Cleo to succumb to his feline advances. And when Lacey discovers that Cleo’s in the family way, she’s furious that neither Jack nor his amorous animal seems terribly upset about it.
But things aren’t always what they appear. Jack’s “girlfriend” isreally his sister—and his intentions toward Lacey are quite honorable (though she’s not sure about Dog). And out of the blue, Lacey is discovering the tender joy of falling in love all over again.
My Review: Cat lovers and romance novel lovers will rejoice over FAMILY AFFAIR, a light and heartwarming story as only Macomber, the mother of sweet, tasteful romance can deliver.
Recently divorced and swearing off men, heartbroken Lacey Lancaster has a bone to pick with her neighbour Jack Walker. Jack’s cat, Dog, impregnates her Abyssinian, Cleo and Lacey wants to know what Jack (and Dog) are going to do about it. You see, Lacey intended to breed beautiful Cleo and now Dog has messed up her plans. Jack has been interested in Lacey since she moved into their San Francisco apartment complex and now he has Dog to thank for getting Lacey to let down her guard and let Jack into her life.
This is a short read about starting over and new love. Add a steaming cup of tea, a warm blanket and tuck in for a cozy afternoon.
