Review: Eight Cats of Christmas by Erin Stevenson

This was such a romantic, sweet story! I loved the sense of closeness in Mia’s family. The Boston setting was fun and Mia’s cousin’s wedding was a wonderful backdrop for the romance to blossom between Mia and Bryce.

Both Mia and Bryce were recovering from some relationship heartache, especially Bryce, after the catastrophe that his first marriage became. I liked the way Mia and Bryce were drawn to each other right away, yet as they began to talk and share and get to know each other, it was clear that there was something special developing between them.

I enjoyed this Christmas story from start to finish and I hope to see a story for Mia’s brother, Finn, some time in the future.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Mia Donovan isn’t interested in a relationship, she’s too busy opening her cat shelter and rescuing floofy balls of fur. Being a bridesmaid is just a blip on her horizon.

Bryce Murphy has no plans to change his bachelor lifestyle, but is willing to stand up as the best man for a good friend.

In the chaos of plans gone awry, it’s up to the bridesmaid and the best man to come up with a strategy to get it all back on track. In the midst of disaster, love strikes two hearts.

Can eight cats, a feline allergy, and a photo shoot gone wrong bring Mia and Bryce together forever?




Erin Stevenson has been writing fiction since 2014. She has published independently with Pelican Book Group and Winged Publications and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.

Writing is like breathing to Erin. Stories are running through her mind during most of her waking hours, and by the time she sits down at the computer, the words flow and time ceases to exist.

Erin was raised in Illinois and has lived in many places in the U.S., including on both coasts, but is a Midwest girl at heart. She spent many years as an educator from pre-school through college levels, and currently works in training and internal communications for a global corporation.

When she’s not writing, Erin loves spending time with her children and grandchildren, and playing in the garden (which equates to mostly pulling weeds) at her central Iowa home. Her secret indulgence is plain M&Ms.
