This review is for CHARLOTTE REDBIRD: GHOST COACH by Sharon Buchbinder.
After spending years building up her life coaching business in Chicago, Charly is blacklisted after she refuses to lie for a client. Jobless and in need of a fresh start, she travels down to her grandmother’s place in the small town of Cat’s Paw Cove, Florida. Her grandmother is living in a retirement community and the residents are… strange. Cats are everywhere and they seem to dominate the landscape. Which is odd, right? Not so much, as Charly is about to find out. With the help of sexy real estate agent Dylan Graham, Charly discovers she’s surrounded by supernatural beings, ghosts, empaths and more. One surprise after another has Charly not sure of anything anymore. Is she going crazy or has she finally found her calling?
I’m a huge paranormal romance reader and when I heard Sharon Buchbinder had a new release, I inhaled it. I connected with Charly right away. She’s going through a lot and in need of some guidance. Enter Charly’s outgoing, spunky grandmother. With humor, sage advice and a little mystery, she nudges Charly in the right direction. The romance between Charly and Dylan is so sweet. My heart swelled reading their attraction and falling in love. The scenes with the cats were pure magic and I loved every minute of it. When I reached the end, I pouted a little because I wanted to stay in Cat’s Paw Cove longer.
Blending cozy mystery, paranormal romance, cats, ghosts in a quaint small town, Meows and Mistletoe is a must-read. Perfect for the holidays!

After working in health care delivery for years, Sharon Buchbinder became an association executive, a health care researcher, and an academic in higher education. She had it all--a terrific, supportive husband, an amazing son and a wonderful job. But that itch to write (some call it an obsession) kept beckoning her to "come on back" to writing fiction. Thanks to the kindness of family, friends, critique partners, and beta readers, she is published in non-fiction, as well as contemporary, erotic, paranormal ,and romantic suspense. When not attempting to make students, colleagues, and babies laugh, she can be found herding cats, waiting on a large gray dog, fishing, dining with good friends, or writing.
