Book Review - "The Christmas Cat"

Melody Carlson's latest Christmas novella, "The Christmas Cat," is a sweet read that will get you in the spirit of giving and remind you of the important things in life.
Garrison has been out of the country for almost a decade and has felt lost since returning to the states.  Now he feels even more lost when his grandmother passes away, his only relative.  Now he more than just without a job, he without family and must deal with taking care of his grandmother's final wishes, even with how odd they are. As Garrison tries to fulfill his grandmother's wishes, he finds himself meeting people whom he probably would have never met otherwise and he finds himself thinking more about his dreams and also his future.
I really enjoyed this book, it was short, sweet story that I will probably be rereading each year at Christmas time.  I loved the interactions between Garrison and the other characters such as Cara, Elliott,
and Vincent and the roles each of them played with Garrison finding himself and finding peace and home. Melody does a fabulous job with creating the scene as I felt as if I was right there with Garrison inspecting the homes and meeting the families as well as when he was fixing up his grandmother's home.  I highly recommend this book to be put on your to read pile at some point in the next month.
