“J’espère que lon va avoir assez pour nourrir tout le monde ». Connie a franchi le seuil de l’énorme salle de banquet du prestigieux Hôtel Royale de Londres, portant à bout de bras un gâteau superbement décoré qui la dépassait de plus d’une tête. Si elle se baissait un peu plus, elle était certaine de trébucher sur l’ourlet de sa robe longue. “Qu’est-ce-que tu racontes?” Lucy lui a demandé en montrant la table. “On a une montagne de nourriture. Tu as oublié qu’il n’y a que cinq personnes d’inscrites ? « Nous quatre, qui avons organisé la soirée en premier lieu et ma tante qui ne vient que pour rigoler et qui n’est plus toute jeune ». “Oui, je le sais bien,” Connie a soupiré. “Mais tu ne te rends pas compte, c’est comme ça les soirées de lancements – arriver à intéresser plus de personnes à joindre le groupe et ...” Malheureusement à cet instant elle a trébuché sur l’ourlet de sa robe et est partie en avant. Le gâteau qu’elle tenait alors à bout de bras, s’est balancé dangereusement tandis qu’elle essayait de garder son équilibre. En voyant ce qui se passait, Lucy s'est précipitée et s’est débrouillée pour attraper le gâteau avant qu’il ne s’affale sur le sol. «Bon sang, ta robe est bien trop longue. Tu n’as pas autre chose à te mettre? » « Non ! »Connie lui a répondu. Elle a relevé la robe. « En tout cas pas avec moi. De plus j’ai payé une fortune pour cette robe de créateur et je la mettrais même si je dois mourir avec ». La robe bleu nuit avec son haut en paillettes lui avait paru si belle sur le mannequin dans la vitrine. Elle savait que la couleur allait parfaitement mettre en valeur sa chevelure blonde et ses yeux bleus étincelants. C’était une robe irrésistible. Il fallait qu’elle l’achète, quel que soit le prix. Mais Connie n’avait pas pris en considération les quelques centimètres de plus qu’avait le mannequin.

Kat Stevens is a slightly insecure, mostly bored technical writer who likes her cat a lot more than her boss. She hasn't laid eyes on her great aunt Abigail since she was eight, so she's stumped when she inherits Abigail's house in the small hamlet of Alpine Grove. Kat's uncomplicated life gets decidedly less so when she discovers the inheritance comes with some hairy conditions: four dogs and five cats that her aunt wanted her to love as her own. Of course, the house smells like a barn-with a touch of antique skunk-and, naturally, has serious roof issues. And that's before the three-legged cat gets stuck in the wall and the shower goes kablooey. When Kat meets Joel, an unemployed techie type with no love lost for his sister, Kat looks past his obvious flaws, given his timely and desirable skill set: a talent for fixing things (and his own tools). Despite out-of-control dogs, cat fights, dust dinosaurs, massive spiders and an old grizzled hippie passed out in the yard, Kat discovers the tranquility of the forests of Alpine Grove starting to seep into her soul. And why she can't she stop thinking about Joel?
