Synopsis

Kat Stevens is a slightly insecure, mostly bored technical writer who likes her cat a lot more than her boss. She hasn't laid eyes on her great aunt Abigail since she was eight, so she’s stumped when she inherits Abigail's house in the small hamlet of Alpine Grove.

Kat's uncomplicated life gets decidedly less so when she discovers the inheritance comes with some hairy conditions: four dogs and five cats that her aunt wanted her to love as her own. Of course, the house smells like a barn--with a touch of antique skunk--and, naturally, has serious roof issues. And that's before the three-legged cat gets stuck in the wall and the shower goes kablooey.

When Kat meets Joel, an unemployed techie type with no love lost for his sister, Kat looks past his obvious flaws, given his timely and desirable skill set: a talent for fixing things (and his own tools).

Despite out-of-control dogs, cat fights, dust dinosaurs, massive spiders and an old grizzled hippie passed out in the yard, Kat discovers the tranquility of the forests of Alpine Grove starting to seep into her soul.

And why she can't she stop thinking about Joel?

    Love the book and character. The the ingenious way she took care of the jumping problem and the walking leash salution. They are real people with real lives. Once again LOVE the story.

    Its a light read. Amusing . No complex issues. Which is good for a bedtime read. I was pleased that it did not contain crude and offensive language.

    Thank you Susan! You wrote a fantastic feel-good story! The characters and story-line are believable. Being an animal lover I truly enjoyed the book. I'm sure everyone can associate with their quirky traits! I want to be Kat!!
