My book for today is Christmas at the Cat Cafe by Jessica Redland
Publication Date: September 15, 2023
It had always been Tabby’s dream to work with cats and an inheritance from her beloved nanna has finally made that a reality. Idyllic Castle Street in Whitsborough Bay couldn’t be a better place for pastry chef Tabby to open a cat café with her boyfriend, Leon.
But when Leon leaves her in the lurch, the pressure mounts for Tabby. With Christmas fast approaching, she has to open the café on her own – a daunting prospect, especially when she’s been hiding her health issues from the ones she loves.
Faced with local resistance to the café – and somebody seemingly determined that she won’t succeed – Tabby will need her friends, family, and cats more than ever to recover her broken Christmas spirit and pull together for a Christmas miracle.
Will the cat café bring the festive joy to Castle Street as Tabby had hoped or will it be a cat-astrophe? And can the magic of Christmas on Castle Street mend Tabby’s broken heart as well as her business?
‘Tabby?’ Matt called, knocking on the open door to the empty flat.
Rylan, Mum, and Dad also gave me hugs goodbye and checked again that I was sure I didn’t need them to help over the weekend. ‘We should be okay with Wendy working it now unless my fibro decides it’s going to spoil everything.’
Today’s Question Is: Has reading helped you become a better person? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
A: Yes, I would like to believe it has.
