Happy Halloween : Black Cat

  Black Cat ; 

This Wednesday we celebrate the Black Cat's in our lives. 

Talking about the positive one, a black cat spiritually means impending prosperity, fortune, and luck. While when it comes to the negative one, the black cat is considered to be a sign of poverty, evil, and a stroke of bad luck.

RIP Sweetie ; we lost last year our sweetest little black cat She was a part of a family of three kittens born under my sons bed. She was small and sickly but brought us lots of joy! .She's been my Halloween Muse on my blog for many years but she will be missed this year.  We miss you !

Book Friday

Polly Carmichael has a secret, one shared by her two aunts and all the women of her line, and it means that marriage is not an option for her. Adam Finlay left the vet practice he was working for when cost cutting led to animals suffering. He would love to open a one-man practice of his own, but all his savings went to his ex wife in her battle against cancer. He’s still getting over the divorce, and he doesn’t have anything to offer a woman at the moment anyway.

Adam’s sister has set him up in a rental house in the small seaside town of Kauri Bay, not far from the family farm, and he soon notices Polly, the manager of the Beach Front Cafe. Polly knows she can’t get interested in the handsome young vet, she really mustn’t, but her heart flutters every time he’s near her.

The two young people find themselves in an impossible situation – or is it? Not when help comes from a completely unexpected quarter. A clean and wholesome romance, and a book about an inspirational community.

Please join us here on Book Beginnings on Fridays to share the opening sentence (or so) of the book you are reading. Or share a book you want to highlight. Leave the link to your Book Beginnings post in the linky box below. 

My Beginning : 
Adam turned the kitten on its back, cradling it against the warmth of his stomach ,and ran a practiced eve over the little frame, 

My 56th part of the book: 

The answer to that was a very strong yes, if that was where  Polly lived.
