Everyone believes in carpe diem... don’t they?
For flower shop clerk Lili Goodweather, that’s what life is all about--savoring the precious moments and all the beauty the world has to offer. So it breaks her heart when 12-year-old Erika Rutland can no longer see the magic in everyday moments.
No, not everyone believes in carpe diem… or telepathic communication with animals.
A firm believer in all things practical, widower Tanner Rutland doesn’t want his daughter’s mind filled with Lili’s fanciful tales—especially her claims that she can communicate with cats. And worse, that his daughter’s cat Fluffy has witnessed a murder. When Lili asks him to help search for the dead body that just absolutely has to be out in the redwoods—she claims—he’s forced to confront whether Lili is just plain crazy or her gift with animals is real.
But after that first delicious kiss, he starts to think he’s the one who’s gone completely crazy. Because suddenly there’s something about Lili that Tanner just can’t resist.
Can this single-minded widower give up everything he believes for a little touch of magic.

The female lead is a unique character and the cats and child make the book interesting but I am super annoyed at the male lead. It’s like the other characters keep saying well he’s not really a jerk but actually he kinda is. I don’t think her attraction would have led to real love if she’d been going by how he treats her. This book really left me feeling disappointed that the characters get together in the end. It was like too little too late.
