The Cat in the Christmas Tree: And Other True Stories of Feline Joy and Merry Mischief, Nonfiction by Callie Smith Grant (Editor)-Review

Christmas is a time for joy, wonder, and a little bit of mischief. Does any creature manifest these attitudes better than a cat? Their fascination with all those breakable ornaments on the tree and their appreciation of a cozy spot to nap seem made for the season. The way they alternate between calm and crazy echoes the way we all feel at Christmas, doesn’t it? And that’s just what you get with The Cat in the Christmas Tree.

This collection of true, feel-good holiday stories by various writers celebrates the gift of cats and delivers all the warm fuzzies you could desire. It’s the perfect companion for those magical Christmas evenings in front of the fireplace with your favorite feline. It also makes the purrfect gift for cat-loving friends.

My Thoughts

The cat in the Christmas Tree is a delightful non-fiction book. It has three-to-four-page stories authors have contributed to the book about their cats taking place at Christmas time.
Mostly about kittens gotten around Christmas time, it is quite the entertaining read.
As you can imagine with cats, rascals as we all know, there are quite a few stories about cats in the Christmas tree, those trees falling down, decorations smashing and the like. Read this purr and cuddle filled book, perfect for all cat lovers. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I have.

The Authors

Suzanne Baginskie and her husband, Al, left New Jersey and relocated to the west central coast of Florida. She’s been writing ever since her mother gifted her a five-year diary for her eighth birthday. Unknowingly, her mother’s inspirational nudge helped the writer inside her emerge.

She recently retired from a law firm as a paralegal-office manager. Now she writes daily, spinning tales of romantic suspense that pair tantalizing mystery with compelling romance. Fascinated with strong FBI female characters and their male counterparts, she loves solving cybercrimes and situations that involve human and drug trafficking. In her books, the special FBI agents working together through difficult life-threatening criminal activities usually fall in love.

Each morning, she takes a four-mile walk and meditates on her current writing project. A voracious thriller, crime reader and movie buff, she’d volunteered for eight years at the local sheriff’s office and also supports her local library association as a friend. She loves traveling, especially on cruise ships. Most sea days on board, you’ll find her plotting stories outside on the deck, gazing at the beautiful blue ocean.

The first published book in her “FBI Affairs” series is “Dangerous Charade-Book One” released on October 17, 2021. “Dangerous Revenge-Book Two,” followed on December 1, 2021, and “Dangerous Innocence-Book Three” was recently published on April 20, 2022, by Magnolia Blossom Publishing. She is currently working on the next book in her series.
