A Review of "Purrfect Voyage" by Ruth J Hartman

But it now at!
Kitty Carter has a problem. It's a four-legged one by the name of Arthur, her precocious black cat. Kitty's a writer, who has a children's series featuring said cat on his many adventures. This time, she's on a research trip to a boat dock in Alaska and finds herself chasing Arthur, who in turn has chased a mouse onto an empty yacht. Kitty, loving cat-mom that she is, follows him into the yacht, trips, bangs her head, and is out cold.

Enter Arthur Katz(whom Kitty later dubs George)--a man who is yacht-sitting for his friend, John. Arthur's been out buying supplies so he can deliver the yacht to John in Hawaii. Arthur works long, long hours and is really looking forward to a two-week voyage of nothing but relaxing and fishing. Imagine his surprise when he finds Kitty just waking up from her tumble a few hours later. Of course, the two hit it off while forced to spend two weeks together out on the open ocean, but they've got a few hangups from past failed relationships that might just keep them apart.

This hilarious story from Ruth J. Hartman kept me laughing at all the antics between cat and his chosen humans. I've not enjoyed a cat-themed story so much since "The Cat Who..." series by Lillian Jackson Braun. Kitty and George are characterized perfectly. And not just their names...I mean, if Kitty marries George, she will be Kitty, these two have some pretty funny exchanges, along with a scary scene when George has to save Kitty and Arthur both from drowning.The writing is clear, fast-paced, easy-to-read and the story is just fun.

My verdict: Purrfect Voyage is a sweet, funny romance suitable for all ages. Grab your copy at today!
