The Purrfect Pet Sitter by Carol Thomas

Introducing Lisa Blake, the purrfect pet sitter! 

When Lisa Blake’s life in London falls apart, she returns to her hometown rebranding herself as ‘the purrfect pet sitter’ – which may or may not be false advertising as she has a rather unfortunate habit of (temporarily) losing dogs! 

But being back where she grew up, Lisa can’t escape her past. There’s her estranged best friend Flick who she bumps into in an embarrassing encounter in a local supermarket. And her first love, Nathan Baker, who, considering their history, is sure to be even more surprised by her drunken Facebook friend request than Lisa is. 

As she becomes involved in the lives of her old friends Lisa must confront the hurt she has caused, discover the truth about her mysterious leather-clad admirer, and learn how to move forward when the things she wants most are affected by the decisions of her past.

I was fortunate  to be allowed an advance copy of this novel. I read it around Valentine's Day which was the purrfect time of year for this fun, romantic read.
It is not silly and sappy or gooey sweet. Actually, the heroine struggles with her emotions through much of the book.

It is a wonderful novel of friendship and learning to love oneself, about facing life's difficulties and continuing to move forward. It is about remembering to appreciate the good times and people life places in our path.
Carol Thomas writes cleanly with the right amount of humor to put a smile on your face and a few laugh out loud moments. 

This is the kind of book I want to share with friends.
I give it a full 5 stars.
