Inspired by a true story, a cat named MacGyver moves to California from Pennsylvania with his owner into a neighborhood of story-book themed homes. Jamie Snyder has moved to California for a year of self-discovery paid for with an inheritance after her mother’s death. MacGyver senses her loneliness and in his very cat way wants to help her feel better. Because Jamie is focused on what she wants to do with the rest of her life, she does not really want to start a relationship with a man, but MacGyver see things differently. In an attempt to draw Jamie to meet a lonely neighbor, he sneaks out of the house at night and steals personal objects (underwear and such) from David, a three-year widower. Other circumstances draw the two together, eventually they figure out what MacGyver has been up to. This sweet romance is a fun read.
