Looking for a holiday gift for the cat-loving friend in your life – or something for yourself to read while snuggled up next to the fire? Check out Christmas at the Cat Cafe (available today), the festive sequel to Molly and the Cat Café, by Melissa Daley. Resident cat Molly and her kittens love living in their paradise feline, while their person, Debbie, serves the locals homemade goodies. When Debbie's heartbroken sister, Linda, arrives at the cafe, Debbie insists she move in. Unfortunately, Linda brings her dog, Beau, with her – much to the cats' dismay. Not only that, Molly is under threat when a rival cat moves in on her turf. With Christmas coming up, Molly fears for her feline family. Can a Christmas miracle bring everyone together?
