Today is the release day for a new book by Jill Shalvis in her Heartbreaker Bay series. I am lucky enough to be part of her review team which means that I have had a chance to read this book early.
Any book starring a meezer is a 5 star book for me. Meezers aka Siamese cats are highly intelligent, opinionated, talkative, and not afraid to remind you of who is in charge of your life ——> them not you.
The humans in this story are Willa who grew up as a foster child and managed to find herself a career working with animals as the owner of a pet store and all around pet wrangler. Willa is always trying to rescue everyone while trying to not allow herself to commit. Keane Winters has his own issues with dealing with taking care Petunia aka Pita for an aunt, dealing with parents who need rescuing without it seeming like he is rescuing them, and his own business of renovating and selling houses around the San Francisco Bay area.
Keane and Pita (his affectionate name for Petunia) are off to a troubled start when Pita lands his lap since his aunt needs some help. Meezers are very particular and do not like change too well. Everything in their world needs to be its place and their needs come first. Pita makes her dislike of these changes well known to Keane in ways that only a Siamese would do.
Keane walks into Willa’s shop just as she is finishing up bathing a batch of 6 puppies. He is desperate for some one to watch Petunia during his work hours and is hoping that Willa will board the cat. And this is where the fun begins. Willa remembers Keane from way back in high school but he doesn’t remember her.
This book is a wonderful fun read with Petunia leading, okay dragging, these two humans to their happily ever.
This is book 2 in the new series Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis. And like all of her books, this one is easy to read on its own. So settle down in a comfy chair with your favorite beverage and lose yourself for a few hours and enjoy the antics of this lovely world.
