Pilar is a six-toed Abyssinian cat whose forebears lived with Ernest Hemingway at his house in Key West. When she and her owner, Ryan, move up north, they both have a hard time getting accustomed to the cold weather until Ryan starts to get pointers from his lovely coworker, Lisa.
In true feline fashion, Pilar can't resist sticking her six-toed paw into the budding romance between Ryan and Lisa with charming and sometimes surprising results in the first two stories in this collection.
In "The Temple of Lights," efficiency expert Robert Lehmann discovers just how much havoc a woman can bring to his life while the funny-naive heroine of "You're Pretty When You Smile, Ima Jean" goes out in search of her life and finds something she wasn't looking for.
And in the final story, "The Cat Who Ran Away," the sleek, regal Rajah leads Susan to figure out that perhaps you really can go home again.
Men and women meet, fall in love, and stumble over obstacles in the five charming stories included here from award-winning romance author Neil S. Plakcy, but the ending is always a happy one.
