Detective Mitch was never much of a cat person. He always thought they had an aloof and superior attitude. Boy, does he get a surprise when he suddenly has to take in an injured cat that breaks into his house in the middle of the night.
Catherine ,“Cat,” is reluctant to adopt a troubled teenage boy, but, after suffering abuse at the hands of her own parents, she feels it is her duty to give Ethan a home. The bond between Cat and Ethan is endearing. Both have baggage and demons from their past, and both are helping each other cope.
As Mitch and Cat struggle with their own dramas (Cat with Ethan; Mitch with the case), the two find themselves drawn to each other.
Things get frightening when Ethan’s father returns and tries to take back what’s owed to him (not Ethan, but money and jewelry). Luckily, he and Cat have a newly-adopted dog and one hunky police detective to protect them.
A heartwarming story!
