Good books have been described as those that "make the heart to sing and the eyes to sting." Renee Riva's new novel, "Purr-Suasion" does just that.
This talented author, whose books go on my keeper shelf after I read them, has done it again. I laughed. I got a lump in my throat. I thoroughly enjoyed this unique, out-of-the-box romance novel. A real bonus is "The True Stories Behind This Story" section. It provides a fascinating look at how Renee takes incidents from her life, expands or alters them to fit her stories, and adds even more color to her writing.
The addition of the first chapter of Renee's JACKSON'S TREASURE (also a winner) is a second plus. If you are looking for a good, clean read, this title is for you. It was for me.
Animal lover, Zoey Pappas leaves the rat race of Seattle to move to the small town of Leavenworth, Washington to open her new pet grooming salon, Puppy Dooz. Having given up her former dream of acting, she is miffed when her cat, Sofie, is constantly pursued by a theater cat named Valentino. Especially, when his owner, Dawson, runs The Backstage Theater playhouse in town and wants Zoey to audition as his leading lady in the Jane Austen production of Persuasion. Zoey turns him down flat. Come for opening night and find out how a chivalrous cat, a rat named Sir Galahad, and handsome Captain Wentworth, all worked together to PURR-suade Zoey otherwise.
