When workaholic attorney McKenna Wright returns home from the hospital following a car accident, she has the sinking feeling that her road to recovery is going to be a long one.

Her memory has more holes than a piece of swiss cheese; she can barely recall her own name, let alone the details of the big case she's been trying in court. And then there's the fact that her beloved cat, Nefertiti, has suddenly learned how to talk. Or is it that McKenna has suddenly learned how to listen? Not that she wants to hear what Titi is trying to tell her, because it just might turn her world even further upside down. Such as the fact that the music star she's been defending isn't all that innocent. And worse, that the hunky prosecutor McKenna condemned on sight is guilty of nothing more than his criminal good looks.But after losing her job and her house, and making no progress at finding her memory, McKenna needs all the help she can get to rebuild her life. She's determined to reclaim her fiercely independent former self, even if it means taking advice from her talking cat, listening to her bossy friends, or--worst of all--leaning just a little on the man she used to snub. Once her memory returns, she'll finally be able to put chatty felines and a certain entirely-too-handsome lawyer behind her so her life can return to normal. After all, normal is exactly what McKenna wants...isn't it?...

The Cat's Meow Reviews
This book is an example of a great storyline but the use of so many trite phrases and editing errors ground my reading to a stop so often that this little book took 3 days to read! The premises, a driven, arrogant attorney who only cares about the fast-track to partnership and the money that comes with her prestigous job, develops amnesia after a car wreck. While trying to relearn who she is (and what she does), she finds that her cat is giving her very good advice ("find your sun", "naps are good") and she is understanding her! Unfortunately, the inclusion of the talking cat is not kept up as a pertinent part of the story - in some sections, too much time goes by as just a normal romance and the talking cat part is forgotten or ignored (and cats HATE to be ignored!). The author did a wonderful job of showing how stressed and confused our heroine was after her wreck, and really did a great job with the introspection she endured over the next 3 months. I was touched as she debated whether to try for her old job back as she compared it to her jobs ATW (After the wreck) - Mickey D's and then Hospital Volunteeer Coordinator Secretary. The law job paid well but the politics and backstabbing had been causing her mucho stress, while McDonalds paid very little but taught her that her co-workers could be encouraging and friendly and her hospital job could be downright family-feeling.All in all, a decent book - 2nd in a series - and maybe worth checking out the other books, where this time the dogs rule.Nah, cat's always rule. I've been told.
When McKenna Wright is in a serious car accident, she is forced to reevaluate her life and priorities. The best part of this book was watching the transformation of McKenna Wright from high-powered lawyer to McDonald’s employee to hospital secretary. Her life lessons in humility and gratitude are realistic and funny. The romance between her and a former adversary is wonderfully done.-Lynn H.-
I love cats and while my genre is more murder mystery, I do like some romance books. I enjoyed this book. There was enough of a mystery and intrigue that I kept reading it. It was a little long, still I would recommend it to anyone.SPOILER ALERT BELOW!!It was really interesting to think of how the accident really was the best for McKenna and put yourself in her shoes, wondering how hard it must have been for her and how you really would have to rely on family and friends, not that her family was there for her. It was interesting how Adam was introduced, why did she give him much change after he tried to take advantage of her???
A hot shot beautiful alpha-female attorney has a car accident that leaves her with amnesia. Hero is opposing attorney in a high profile case. Journey of self discovery to decide what kind of woman heroine wants to be. btw talking cat and love.
MFC is an idiot, her friends are jerks, plot is excruciatingly slow, love interest is your typical cowboy. Way to go, originality.[Note: as of May 30, 2007, I just cannot get through this stupid book. I'm shelving it and it's going away in lieu of books I actually like.]
I've read this book twice. My favorite part is the "talking cat" Tiki, and her attitude.
This was a great book and the cat was really well written. I would definitely recommend this book to friends.
Best book ever!
