Waiting on Wednesday (50) - Stop the Presses!


"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases. 







May 10, 2016
FROM GOODREADS: Sally Baynard is one of the best lawyers around. In the years since her divorce from Family Court Judge Joe Baynard, she dedicated herself to representing the worst and craziest Charleston, S.C. had to offer. But none of the murderers, burglars, or angry divorcing clients compared to Sherman, the dog her ex-husband appointed her to represent. Although the miniature Schnauzer found his way into her heart (and brought his handsome vet Tony along too), his case was a thorny one. With that business out of the way, Sally is happy to move back to non-canine clients... until a probate judge asks her about a cat.

Agreeing to represent Beatrice, a black cat who's the beneficiary of a multi-million dollar trust and a plantation, Sally must put her wit, charm, and brains to the test, choosing among three colorful potential caregivers while dodging the former owner's angry son. Meanwhile, Sally must juggle the demands of the court with those of her aging mother and make a decision about Tony, who wants to get more serious. Lawyer for the Cat is Southern women's fiction at its most delightful, featuring strong, smart characters, a charming setting, and plenty of adorable critters.


WHY I'M WAITING:  Yes, no need to adjust your screen, that really is a book with a cat on the cover.  Please don't tell Booker T!  I read Robinson's book "Lawyer for the Dog" last year and absolutely loved it.  I can't wait to see what happens when Sally Baynard ends up representing a cat this time around.  I love the whole cast of characters and really hope Sherman makes a guest appearance.


What are you waiting for this week?

  7. I have seen a few cases like these on shows and looked some up and it's insane people leaving their fortunes to their pets! This is both intriguing and strange (in a fun way). Enjoy!

    1. I will always be a dog person through and through. I have only liked one, maybe two cats in my life. That isn't to say I hate them per se, I just believe there are a lot of differences between cat and dog lovers and I fall in the dog category. While I never want to see a cat hurt, I don't want any around me either - haha. (except Snowball, the neighborhood cat that adopted us and is smart enough to stay out of the back yard).

  14. OMG, what a GORGEOUS cat!! And, of course, that means the cover is gorgeous, as well.

    This one sure sounds like it will be full of very funny scenes in which the humans might just be upstaged by the critters! Lol. And the relationship between Sally and Tony is definitely one that I know I'd enjoy reading about.

    Looks like you've picked the perfect summer read, Barb! GREAT choice!!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my WOW!! :)
