Squeekie the Bookstore Cat passed away on March 24, 2021.

Squeekie has been our resident cat for eight years. He came to us from a friend of Michelle’s who gave him up so he could get the attention he needed.

Squeekie loved people more than anything - which made him the perfect bookstore cat. He greeted people all day with a purr and a squeak, always happy to meet a new friend or brighten an old friend’s day.

We will miss Squeekie more than words can describe. He was truly a blessing in our lives.

We want to thank everyone who ever gave Squeekie a friendly word, a pat, or who turned on the water in the bathroom for him.  Thank you so much for bringing joy to Squeekie’s life.

Rest in peace.

~Review by Michelle~


The Boy Next Door by Carrie Jacobs

This is the third book in the Hickory Hollow series, but each book is a lovely standalone romance. I couldn’t stop reading this book. I connected with the hero and heroine, but my favorite character was the younger brother, Jared. He felt incredibly real. The conflict of a hero running from the spotlight and the heroine seeking success in it resonated with me.
