I enjoyed this novel. The book is a fun afternoon read. I could see for some the character of Kit not being too likable, I even thought she was spoiled but that is part of the story, why she acts out like she does. Pendleton on the other hand helps balance the story. Pendleton couldn't believe his ears. He'd taken this new job hoping to make money, not marry into it! But if runaway heiress Kit McClellan didn't agree to enter into wedded bliss soon, the entire family fortune could be willed to the homeless pets of Louisville. Someone had to find Kit and bring her back as his finace--and his boss was telling Pendleton he was just the man for the job.
