Take two cats, a dog, and a determined woman…
Animal lover Abby Pimm isn’t looking for love. With two rescue cats, one rescue dog, a struggling business, and her fourteen-year-old sister to raise, she’s got her hands full. What she needs is an angel – though she’ll settle for the devil if he’ll invest in her fledgling company and keep it afloat.
Add a six-year-old girl…
Wealthy businessman Holden Ramsay is no devil. He’s doing all the right things, and when he’s forced to care for his ex’s six-year-old daughter, he ends up hiring Abby as a temporary sitter – a woman who lights up his damaged heart, and perks up other organs as well. A woman who might be his redemption…or his downfall.
Who’s rescuing who?
The animals that Abby rescued think maybe it’s time they do a little rescue work of their own—because sometimes humans in love can be so dense…
This was a very, very cute book. Simple, fun to read and heart-warming.
Abby is an older sister, a mom and a dad all at the same time to her younger sister, Grace. Their parents died when Abby was just starting college, so she dropped out to take care of her sister. She also began taking in rescue animals, some of which she fostered, and three of which she kept. Minnie is her cat, a Siamese that she rescued first and told the abandoned kitten “I’m going to be your mommy now.” So Minnie feels allegiance to Abby, not only out of loyalty but of the deep abiding love that it seems only animals can achieve.
I try not to completely re-summarize the book similarly to the book description because I feel that’s just repetitive and unhelpful. But Holden is someone that Abby has known for years, though they’re only just now getting back in touch, through a shared acquaintance, who informs Holden that Abby would be able to babysit his child…
Sparks fly, and there are bumps along the way, but everyone falls in love (as they should, and must in a H.E.A. book).
I love that the book is told from the perspective of the humans as well as the animals. Mainly you see the world through Abby’s eyes and Minnie’s eyes. It’s amusing, if not a little awkward, when the animals discuss being able to smell the humans’ “mating scent”. And how they don’t understand why humans take so long to get to the mating part; why they have to complicate everything.
Again, a cute, fun story and my favorite part?
**25 cents from every HEARTS IN MOTION book sold will go to the Washington County Humane Society in Wisconsin.**
Buy the book, it’s only $3.99, part of that goes towards a good cause and share the love. Because our animals love us unconditionally — they deserve the same, even if they’re not officially yours.
“Minnie didn’t know what was wrong with the human brain; she just knew the world would be a better place if humans thought like cats.”
