Meet Award-Winning, Best-Selling Author Cherime MacFarlane. A prolific multi-genre author, she has a broad range of interests that reflect her been there-done that life. Romance, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, all sorts of characters and plots evolve from a vivid imagination.
I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks.
My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie.
I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.

Wish I had found this book earlier, well done, paced well, and who doesn't like a story that ends well.
Again, glad I found this one.

I do enjoy this author's work, although I prefer her fantasy, this is a charming short story, perfect for the Christmas season...and great to get a feel for that unique place, Alaska.
I actually found this story elsewhere, but as a reviewer as well as an author, I wanted to spread these observations wherever I could.
Good writing comes in all packages, and even though romances are not really my thing, this tale sets the magical scene and we are captured.
Certainly worth a look.

I chose The White Cat for Christmas because I was, already, a huge fan of the author Cherime MacFarlane. I was hooked from the start. Whereas I have little interest in romance as a genre, this foursome love story, a woman, a dog, a man, and a cat, is charming and expertly written.
I curled up in a chair and completely visualised the entire story as I read. The author’s descriptions are excellent without being so obtrusive that they take over from the story telling. Not for an instant did I want to skip a sentence. I wish more books were written this way.
Then, there was the main reason I read Cherime MacFarlane’s books—they are set in Alaska; she allows me to see and feel it.
Another great piece of writing by a talented author

I really enjoyed the smooth writing of Cherime MacFarlane AND the story. Set in the Alaskan "out-back" this is a slow-building romance and kitten rescue -- a way good "catch the wild kitten hiding under the shed" story. The of beginning of a real love makes one rush through the story to get to the relationship you know will be there. MacFarlane has interesting human observations and funny, hip metaphors. She smoothly switches voices and her building of the human relationship is intriguing. In all, this short romance fiction is done in a polished and beautifully written style by an obviously experienced writer.
