Book Review: Sounds Like Love – Laura Ford

I posted a promo for this book a while ago but wasn’t able to find time sadly to read and review it then so here are my thoughts today.

Wendy is a bright spark who wants to find love and travel the world, but she questions how her dreams can become a reality as her world changes around her.When Wendy arrives at her beloved grandmother’s house to collect a box of keepsakes, she picks up more than she bargained for – a green-eyed tabby cat with amazing qualities. This is just the start of a high-speed adventure, leading Wendy towards bright new horizons… if only she’ll give the cat a chance…

My thoughts: this was a sweet story about a girl, a cat and coming to terms with loss. Both the loss of Wendy’s grandmother and that of her hearing. I have partial hearing loss in my right ear so I could appreciate how Wendy felt, the slow loss of one of your senses, especially when you’re a music lover like Wendy, is very hard to deal with.

But the cat she inherits might just be part of the solution – she’s a pretty special little tabby cat. And Wendy’s awful parents have no idea what they’ve passed on. And then there’s Simon, the sweet man Wendy meets who works at the animal shelter, could there be more to their meet cute?

Complete with sweet illustrations by the author, this a charming and heartwarming.
