Family Affair dates back to 1994 release that was part of an anthology called "Purrfect Love".
Lacey moved to San Francisco a year ago after her husband left her for another woman. Since she's moved to San Francisco she has done her best to stay away from men. She isn't interested in being hurt again. Her neighbor Jack is interested in getting to know Lacey and has been trying since she first moved in.
Lacey has done her best to be polite, but stay away from Jack. Jack seems to have woman problems of his own, if all the yelling with his girlfriend through the neighboring wall is anything to go by. In the meantime, Lacey's cat is in heat and it just so happens that she meets up with Jack's cat at the wrong time. This puts Lacey exactly where Jack wants her.
Although this book is almost 20 years old the subject matter isn't dated or trite. The story is exactly what you would expect of Debbie Macomber's earlier day stories with a sweet, soft romance.
