Book Feature | St. Francis Society for Wayward Pets by Annie England Noblin #tlcbooktours #stfrancissocietyforwaywardpets #orangecountyreads

How do you feel about cats & dogs wearing clothes? Before I had a small dog, I would have scoffed at the idea of “undignified” animal outfits. Now, I completely get it!

Today is my stop on the book tour for this heartwarming new title from Annie England Noblin. Thanks to TLC Book Tours and William Morrow for the free review copy. Available now!

This book was a light and heart filled story about secrets and adoptions and a group of women who knit sweaters for the cats and dogs at the St. Francis Society for Wayward Pets.

Mae was a relatable character and I was eager to find out what the big secret was. It’s a light and quick read, and the author handles the serious topics with humor and empathy. In the end, Mae finds out the true meaning of family and belonging.

Book Description

Laid off, cheated on, mugged: what else can go wrong in Maeve Stephens’ life? So when she learns her birth mother has left her a house, a vintage VW Beetle, and a marauding cat, in the small town of Timber Creek, Washington, she packs up to discover the truth about her past.

She arrives to the sight of a cheerful bulldog abandoned on her front porch, a reclusive but tempting author living next door, and a set of ready-made friends at the St. Francis Society for Wayward Pets, where women knit colorful sweaters for the dogs and cats in their care.

But there’s also an undercurrent of something that doesn’t sit right with Maeve. What’s the secret (besides her!) that her mother had hidden? If Maeve is going to make Timber Creek her home, she must figure out where she fits in and unravel the truth about her past. But is she ready to be adopted again—this time, by an entire town…?
