A provocatively worded classified on a pet rescue site leads to a bit of a misunderstanding, some crazy flirting, a meeting that gets interrupted, and then a proposition that goes haywire in Desperately Seeking Kitty, the latest book in Taryn Quinn’s Kensington Square series. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books
It takes a special author to write a book about two people who have some mental health issues and not only show how it affects their everyday life and relationships but to also add in some levity to their situation as they meet and get to know one another. A provocatively worded classified on a pet rescue site leads to a bit of a misunderstanding, some crazy flirting, a meeting that gets interrupted, and then a proposition that goes haywire in Desperately Seeking Kitty, the latest book in Taryn Quinn’s Kensington Square series.
Katherine (Kitty) has basically cut herself off from the outside world as she cared for her sick cat and her depression and agoraphobia only got worse following his death. Other than her work partner Magnus who she confers with via computer or phone and her mostly absent father, she has no one left in her life. Even worse Princess Goldenrod her remaining cat is lonely but Kitty isn’t ready for a new cat in her life but she decides renting one for play dates might work. Hence the classified ad which gets flagged by an admin of the site, she engages in a wild exchange with him which eventually leads to Clint agreeing to bring his cat, Lucky, over for a play date.
I really loved this story, Kitty had quite a few issues going on and some were a result of her childhood and others manifested later but she worked hard as a book editor and she wasn’t in denial about her life. She was funny, outspoken, and caring. Clint was a vet who had taken some time off for his own mental health but back working as a vet. I loved that he thought Kitty was a breath of fresh air and he understood she had some issues. He didn’t push her to share, but he made it known it didn’t matter to him. Their attraction was electric but from the start I could feel more growing between them.
There were quite a few surprises that cropped up in this book, nothing bad they added layers to this story and made it even more interesting and entertaining.
I loved everything about this book; the characters (both human and feline), the way they met, their situation, but most of all their communication skills something so lacking in so many romance books these days. Engaging from the start Desperately Seeking Kitty was a delight to read!
