Best-selling author Sheila Roberts brings us a humorous, heartwarming Christmas novel about a matchmaking cat who brings a couple together just in time for the holidays.
When a guy is in trouble, he starts making deals with his Creator…and Ambrose the cat is no exception. In danger of losing his ninth and final life, Ambrose makes a desperate plea. He’ll do anything—anything!—if he can just survive and enjoy a nice long, final life. His prayer is answered when a stranger comes along and saves him, and now it looks like he has to hold up his end of the bargain.
The stranger turns out to be a fire fighter named Zach, the quintessential commitment-phobe who’s in need of some serious romantic help. If Ambrose can just bring Zach together with Merilee, the nice lady who works at Pet Palace, it’s bound to earn him a healthy ninth life.
Unfortunately for Ambrose, his mission is a lot harder than he ever anticipated. Now it’s going to take all his feline wiles—and a healthy dose of Christmas magic—to bring them all together in time for the holidays.

Ambrose, the cat, is on his ninth life, and looking for a new home after his last mistress has died. He realizes that his cute and cuddly days have passed their 'sell-by date'. But he's sure he can convince one more person of his value. He sneaks his way into a single fire fighter's house and plans to stay there. His firefighter has found a sweet girl at the local pet store who seems to be a great 'cat whisper' for settling Ambrose into his life for long enough to find a permanent home for Ambrose.
Ambrose has no plans of leaving, and is sure everyone will settle in quit wonderfully if he can just get rid of that terrible 'cougar lady' that his firefighter seems to think he enjoys dating. Through many humorous and worrisome events, love, forgiveness, and 'pet persuasion' Ambrose gets everything perfectly settled.
This is the very best 'cat /pet' book that I've read in a long time!! If you love your cat or other pet, this book is definitely for you!!
people that are overly obsessed with their figure and weight
It felt like the main man would only like here because she was now slim.
There was way too much emphasis on this womans weight. How very sad. It could have been written in without making it the only reason she could now finally get a man
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again there is no use in reading it at all. Oscar Wilde
I thought that Ambrose was a great touch he has as much part of the story as the humans were
I think it would.be hard.to compare to one book I think its a combination of so many wonderful stories.
She puts you in the story, keeps you interested with well reading.
I think when this big fireman adopts a cat and slowly starts to care for him you cant help but melt
This is definatly a great audio. Listen worth the.listen
What would have been a typical romance story is told from the point of view of a cat who has to do a good deed to save his ninth life. Cute, enjoyable, well-narrated. An easy listen.
Maybe. I would have to give it some serious thought though because in theory this book has all the components to be a book I would rate all 5 stars. I mean a cat is talking throughout the book, that is the making of my ideal book, but I just found it rather boring, redundant, the female main character was weak, lacking confidence, overall annoying, how do they say it these days "thirsty", and the list could go on and on.
I really don't think so.
mediocre, average, blasé
Probably, just because the cat would be one of the main characters and I'm a sucker for cats.
I could definitely see this made into a very cute hallmark movie.
Old, tired member of the sandwich generation. Waiting to just get to heaven!!
This is a cute little book, I wish there were more! The ending was obvious, but the tale is told from a cat's point of view. I liked this one!
