Talk to the Paw by Melinda Metz

Book- Jamie is a grade school history teacher, who has had many poor relationships in the past. This year, it’s all about her! Jamie is determined to use the money gifted by her recently deceased mother.  She packs up her apartment and moves to California with her cat MacGyver (Mac). Jaime isn’t interested in the nephews, dentists, or grandsons the nosy neighbors keep trying to get her to date. She is more interested in trying new things like surfing, acting classes, talking to street vendors, and photography to name a few. She is making new friends in her new community, including a quirky Hollywood set designer, baker, TV series actor, and a cranky teenage girl.

MacGyver has other plans. He is determined to find Jamie a pack mate. Living as the superior-being that he is, he knows what she needs and figures out an escape route in the new house. He travels the neighborhood taking items with strong scents (of various types) and gifts them to particular people in need of said items.

This book is a fun easy read, told mainly from Jamie’s point of view, however, MacGyver gets his say as well. Being a crazy cat lady myself, I thought this book was a creative way to tell a story. I highly recommend Talk to the Paw if you are looking to sit back and giggle here and there through a pleasant storyline.
