Natural Family Disasters
Five short stories that give us glimpses into the lives of Griffin, Jorie, and the other characters from „Second Nature“.
Bonding Time: Griffin has been looking forward to a little feline bonding time with a special lady. Leave it to her sister Leigh to interrupt.
Coming to Dinner: Jorie and Griffin are having second thoughts about their decision to invite Griffin’s shape-shifter relatives and Jorie’s mother for dinner on Christmas Day. What could be more nerve-racking than eight cat-shifters who don’t believe in Christmas celebrating with a human woman, allergic to cats, who doesn’t believe in the existence of shape-shifters? Will it end with peace on earth, or will fur fly?
Babysitter Material: It’s Rufus and Kylin’s anniversary—and no babysitter for the triplets in sight. Kylin has a desperate idea, but is her gruff father Brian, ruler of the pride, really babysitter material?
When the Cat’s Away: When a mouse takes up residence in Griffin and Jorie’s house, Griffin calls her fathers over. With three cat-shifters on the hunt, the house will be a rodent-free zone in no time. Or so she thinks.
Plus One: Griffin accepts Jorie’s invitation to be her “plus one” at Jorie’s high school reunion, eager to find out more about her lover’s past. But the food at the buffet has an unexpected effect on Griffin.
Howling With Laughter
I found the shape-shifter series by doing a search of audio books narrated by Abby Craden. The characters in Second Nature are well written and I was delighted to see a continuation of them in these short stories.
I was giggling and laughing at every page turned from beginning to end!
Thank you Jae for the laughs. I needed it.
I’ve also finished reading book 3 in the shape-shifter series and am about to start book 4. It’s wonderful to read about all the different shape-shifters and how they live their lives.
I highly recommend the entire shape-shifter series to anyone. Natural Family Disasters is written well enough to enjoy without having to read Second Nature, (the book written before this one) but you’ll have a better connection with the characters if you do.
Aah ... hilarious! Love stories about children. They are the best. Sorry to see this story line end. Hopefully more books will come this story line.
