Review: Hearts in Motion by Edie Ramer

Blurb: Take two cats, a dog, and a determined woman...

Animal lover Abby Pimm isn’t looking for love. With two rescue cats, one rescue dog, a struggling business, and her fourteen-year-old sister to raise, she’s got her hands full. What she needs is an angel – though she’ll settle for the devil if he’ll invest in her fledgling company and keep it afloat.

Add a six-year-old girl...

Wealthy businessman Holden Ramsay is no devil. He’s doing all the right things, and when he’s forced to care for his ex’s six-year-old daughter, he ends up hiring Abby as a temporary sitter – a woman who lights up his damaged heart, and perks up other organs as well. A woman who might be his redemption...or his downfall.

Who’s rescuing who?

The animals that Abby rescued think maybe it’s time they do a little rescue work of their own—because sometimes humans in love can be so dense...

My Review: In general I'm not a big reader of contemporary romance, but one whose heroine rescues/fosters cats and dogs, and is building a business building cat furniture, wins me over anytime. I've actually been looking forward to Edie Ramer's Rescued Hearts series since she first posted the cover and an excerpt on her blog. Abby and Holden are living proof that opposites attract, and you can't help but root for them as they fall in love despite trying so hard not to.

Of course for me, Abby's pets stole the show. Wise Siamese Minnie was rescued from the streets; black cat Quigley was a foster that went unadopted until Abby kept him; Golden Retriever Lion; and white foster kitty Epic. These little angels join forces to smack some sense into the silly humans that can't see what's right in front of their eyes.

"Minnie didn't know what was wrong with the human brain; she just knew the world would be a better place if humans thought like cats."  Indeed.

**25 cents from every HEARTS IN MOTION book sold will go to the Washington County Humane Society in Wisconsin.**

The author sent me a copy of this book with the request for a review.
