What if a secret from Christmas past was stopping you from moving on to Christmas future?
When Hugo McCreadie steps into Isla Brodie’s pet portrait studio to get a ‘Festive Furball Photo Shoot’ for his sister’s cat Schubert, he does question his sanity. But he knows the photographs will be the perfect Christmas present for his eccentric sister, Nessa – and he finds himself quite taken with ditzy, animal-loving Isla Brodie, too.
Will a Christmas secret from long ago prevent Hugo and Isla’s new friendship from going any further? Or will a certain big, black cat taking matters into his own paws lead them not only on a mad winter dash through snowy Edinburgh –but into each other’s arms for Christmas as well?

Smiled from start to finish
This was such a lovely story that I had a smile on my face from start to finish! Maddest cat yet did it have a secret agenda? Is that even possible for a cat?! Highly recommend for a fun light hearted read that will put a smile on your face!
A lighthearted read
A lighthearted read and particularly for anyone who has a pet that understands every word spoken to it.
Hugo is caring for his eccentric sister's cat Schubert that is able to understand human speech and even read minds. When Hugo takes Schubert for a cat portrait as an amusing Christmas present for his sister, he meets the lovely Isla who runs the pet shop.
On Christmas Eve, Schubert escapes Hugo's cat sitting care and leads Hugo and Isla on a madcap chase through the snowy streets of Edinburgh. Finally at the very end of the book, the reasons for this clever moggie's antics are revealed.
A fun read for an evening at home, with or without a cat for company.
