Blog Tour: The Purrfect Pet Sitter

The Purrfect Pet Sitter

Introducing Lisa Blake, the purrfect pet sitter! 
When Lisa Blake’s life in London falls apart, she returns
to her hometown rebranding herself as ‘the purrfect pet
sitter’ – which may or may not be false advertising as
she has a rather unfortunate habit of (temporarily)
losing dogs! 

But being back where she grew up, Lisa can’t escape
her past. There’s her estranged best friend Flick who
she bumps into in an embarrassing encounter in a local
supermarket. And her first love, Nathan Baker, who,
considering their history, is sure to be even more
surprised by her drunken Facebook friend request than
Lisa is. 

As she becomes involved in the lives of her old friends
Lisa must confront the hurt she has caused, discover
the truth about her mysterious leather-clad admirer,
and learn how to move forward when the things she
wants most are affected by the decisions of her past.

Book Review:

*The Purrfect Pet Sitter* was a delightful read of a woman trying to find herself.

Lisa had the perfect life, at least from the outside. She had a fabulous job, lived in London, and had a loving boyfriend. Until, it all fell apart. Lisa moved back into her childhood home as she tries to pick up what is left in her life. She starts a pet sitting business, where she meets the vibrant Winnie. Winnie coaches her on moving forward with her life all the while adding some humor and perspective. This tale follows Lisa as she learns how to ask for forgiveness from her high school friends and family. Along the way, she finds her mojo and discovers her true happiness.

Tank and I picked this book because it was about a pet sitter. The pets made occasional appearances by adding humor and fun activities. They weren't the main focus of the story.

Lisa was the main focus of the story. I had a hard time really connecting with her at first. She seemed so lost and passive. She kept being the victim. She is 29; time to be in charge of your life! As the story went on, I grew more attached to her. I had developed empathy for her character after all the bad things she went through. But it took a while to break through her facade to get to the real Lisa!

I thought the hardest part was getting through the first part of the book. The plot kind of dragged up until about 1/3 of the way. Then, it picked up, and the story gradually sucked me in. There were parts that I laughed and parts that I cried. I am glad that I stuck it out as the ending was endearing!

*The Purrfect Pet Sitter* is a tale of second chances and remembering that things aren't always what they seem.

Thank you to the author and Rachel's Random Resources for this book.
