Book Review

‘The Lost Cats and Lonely Hearts Club’ by Nic Tatano

tlcalhc ntSTORY: Swapping Prada for purrs…

While covering a story, feisty network reporter Madison Shaw gets more than she bargained for when she rescues a box of orphaned kittens. Suddenly the glamazon of the Manhattan news room is doing two am feedings to keep these furbabies alive!

This is certainly a change of pace for the high maintenance workaholic she’s become and taking care of the kittens makes Madison realise how far off track she’s come—after all, she was a stray once too…

When a video of her caring for the kittens goes viral, she knows her image as a hardnosed reporter is shot to hell. What Madison doesn’t expect is the media circus that propels her and the kittens to stardom. And the domino effect that has on her, her career and her love life—especially when she meets sexy Officer Nick Marino…!

REVIEW: Madison Shaw is a network television reporter and today she is covering a story about the demolition of a building. Just before the explosion is scheduled to start, she hears the cries of a little of four kittens whose mother has died. With no one to take care of the newborns, she finds herself taking them home with her. Luckily, her neighbor is a vet who shows her how to bottle feed and care for the babies. For someone who knows nothing about caring for a real baby, Madison takes to the process quite well.

When her boyfriend expects her to abandon the kittens and head out on a vacation with him, she is furious and kicks him out. Madison had been an abandoned baby herself and grew up in foster homes.

Madison soon learns that one thing about caring for the kittens is that she has stepped away from her obsession to always be well-turned out and it has shown her how to be more relaxed in her life.

Her good friend from school, Rory, steps in to help her with the kittens and as more of her friends converge upon her in her “relaxed” state, they all cheer her for her determination to help the kittens.

As a reporter, the story of her selfless act of taking the kittens in and caring for them soon gets out in the press and on social media. Many people step up and make donations to shelters and send Madison lots of kitty supplies as well.

Soon, she meets a handsome police officer and a very wealthy man. Both men appeal to her and they like her too. But she realizes that it is wrong to date two men at a time and must soon make a choice.

This is a cute story that proves how helpless animals pull at our heart strings and how easily we draw them right into our hearts. Great characters, humor, and clean. You don’t necessarily have to be an animal lover to enjoy this book but it will probably make one out of you.
