"McMurray's love scenes are crackling!"—Entertainment Weekly Set in Brooklyn (with a small-town feel in the big city), this cat café romantic comedy has tropes readers will adore: Best friend's brother romance Forbidden romance (can't let his sister/my best friend find out!) Millennial angst (my love life is a hot mess) Adorable rescue cats in a cozy Brooklyn café When Paige Danvers isn't managing events for the Whitman Street Cat Café, she is busy navigating dating disasters as a single woman in Brooklyn. Urged by her boss and best friend Lauren to find a distraction from ineffectual dating apps, Paige volunteers with a cat rescue organization, where she actually meets a guy with some real relationship potential. Recent law school grad Josh Harlow is putting in long hours at a Manhattan law firm as he gets over a messy breakup. When his boss requires him to do some volunteer work, Josh's sister sets him up to help capture feral cats. Partnered with Paige, Josh is insistently drawn to the dynamic event planner and sparks between them fly. One problem: after a steamy night together, Paige discovers Josh is Lauren's brother and dating him would be a spectacularly awful idea. Particularly considering Paige's track record. They're both in too deep to walk away—but if they let the cat out of the bag, it's going to wreak havoc with friends, family, and jobs alike. Praise for Kate McMurray: "McMurray offers up some irresistible animal magnetism in this quirky romance...Colorful locals and the leads' convincing chemistry give this romance its sizzle, but it's the four-legged costars that steal the show. Animal lovers are sure to be charmed."—Publishers Weekly on Like Cats and Dogs
