While I normally love Debbie Macomber, I found this book to be preachy and ridiculous. This short story was originally published in 1994 as part of the book Purrfect Love and has now been re-released in hardcover for the whopping price of $16.99. It reads as though it were written in the 1950s. The main character is devastated by her divorce, no longer trusts men, and won't stand up to herself at work. She does, however, expect the man who allowed his cat to impregnate hers to "do the right thing" and help with her cat's pregnancy- related expenses. Being a saint of a man, he agrees, and a relationship ensues. Much of this book is focused on how wonderful and wise the male romantic lead is, with everyone coming around to his way of thinking in the end. Very disappointing.
