Talk to the Paw by Melinda Metz

Posted November 12, 2019 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Mystery, Series / 0 Comments

Jamie Snyder is thirty-four and single but NOT ready to mingle. After suffering through The Year of the Non-Commital Man, The Year of the Self-Absorbed Man, and The Year of the Forgot-to-Mention-I’m-Married Man, Jamie’s ready to celebrate The Year of Me–and MacGyver, of course. MacGyver is an adorable tabby with a not-so-adorable habit of sneaking out at night and stealing things from the neighbors. That’s right, MacGyver is a cat burglar. He’s still the only male Jamie trusts–and the only companion she needs . . .

MacGyver knows his human is lonely. He can smell it. It’s the same smell he’s noticed on their neighbor David, a handsome young baker who’s tired of his friends trying to fix him up. But now MacGyver’s on the case. First, he steals something from David and stashes it at Jamie’s. Then, he steals something from Jamie and leaves it with David. Before long, the two are swapping stolen goods, trading dating horror stories, and trying not to fall in love. But they’re not fooling MacGyver. When humans generate this much heat, the cat is out of the bag!

My Rating:  4 stars

TALK TO THE PAW begins the Mac series with an incorrigible cat by the name of MacGyver or Mac with a bit of a klepto problem.  Well, he’d call it getting the humans he’s trying to help to notice the obvious but the humans in Jamie’s new neighborhood definitely call it a cat burglar at work.  Stealing very odd things, granted, but something strange is going on in Storybook Court.

I liked TALK TO THE PAW, enjoyed Mac’s antics the most of all though – he’s such a CAT, and I’ve been owned by many over the years so I speak from experience.  (grin)  Most of what you’d want to know before picking up this title can be found in the cover description.  There were many characters I enjoyed, one I loathed (and skimmed past every single time he appeared), and found this one to be an entertaining tale to be told.  There were moments when it felt the slow burn romance had gone on long enough, yet, we are establishing the first story in a series so there is world-building to be considered.  I will be back for more in this series.  I’m especially curious to see if the stories are more fast-paced since the background has been set now for this series.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
