Review: Single with Cat: A feel-good romantic comedy by Rosa Silva


Can she save the Happy Endings Bookstore and have the happy ending she deserves?

Olivia is back in her hometown to reopen the bookstore her grandmother left her. She has a whole plan mapped out for the Happy Endings Bookstore. Just one problem – she finds out the bank is ready to foreclose on the bookstore’s mortgage.
Gabriel, the bank manager, is as drop dead gorgeous as he is grouchy. Olivia hates the guy, but her cat Chili seems to love him. Now Olivia has three months to save the bookstore and rub it in Gabriel’s face.

Olivia tries everything to save the bookstore, but with a quest to find out the identity of an anonymous romance writer, her mother wanting to find her a husband, and her grandmother’s grouchy neighbor making her life hell, Olivia has a lot on her plate.

The tension between Olivia and Gabriel escalates as the deadline to save the bookstore approaches, but as the two slowly begin to let their guard down, they might learn that sometimes stepping outside one's comfort zone can lead to the greatest reward.

Single with Cat is a feel-good romantic comedy perfect for readers who love cats, books, and happy endings.
My Review:  
A charming story about following your dreams and falling in love.
I couldn’t get enough of this book.  It was such a good story, I never wanted it to end.  For a quick read, the characters were very well developed and the story kept a great pace all the way through the end.  I kept cheering for Olivia as she fought to make the dream of reopening her grandmother’s bookstore come true, even though it seemed like it wouldn’t happen.  I enjoyed seeing Olivia and Gabriel slowly fall in love and how Gabriel didn’t give up on Olivia, even when she kept pushing him away.  And I really loved all the cats in the book, especially Chili, Olivia’s cat, who seemed to steal quite a few scenes.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and it definitely won’t be the last.
