I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I found this one on NetGalley.  It looked so cute - cats and a cafe? Perfect for me 😀 It's a romantic comedy.  I'm halfway through and I'm loving it.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter

Robinhood is an orange tabby with gorgeous golden eyes and purrs for days, but watch out!  He'll steal your heart and your food!

From 56% on my e-reader...

"You're amazing at this."

"Inserting catheters?"

"Caring for animals. You're so calm and steady."

Synopsis from Goodreads...

A laugh-out-loud, opposites attract romance about three of the world’s most beloved C’s: Christmas, Coffee, and Cats.

Veterinarian and animal lover Kara Ingalls needs a Christmas miracle. Opening the Meow and Furrever Cat Café to find loving homes for adorable, adoptable cats was a dream come true—but with more cats than customers, it’s quickly turning into a nightmare. If Kara can’t figure out some way to get the café out of the red, it won’t last past the holidays.

Marketing guru Ben Reese may be annoyingly smart and frustratingly bossy, but when he hatches a plan to put the café in the “green” by Christmas, Kara realizes that she’d be a fool to turn down his help. And so what if he turns out to be an excellent problem solver and nerdy-hot—he can’t even handle fostering one little kitten. She needs to keep their relationship professional and focus on saving the cafe.

But if Ben and Kara can set aside their differences—and find homes for all the cats by Christmas—they might discover that, by risking their hearts, they’ll have their own purr-fect holiday . . . together.
