Tagline: It was more than Mitch's ghostly tale that made Abby shiver...
Woman's World Tropes: Small town, new in town.
Observations: Now this is more like it. I thought this story was adorable, as was Mitch. The banter between him and Abby was so cute. The only thing that gave me pause was the cat thing. It seemed to not tie in to anything. I half expected Mitch to live next door to her and have a litter of kittens he was trying to find homes for. I read the story again to see if I'd missed something, like a cat sticker on Abby's car or a cat keychain or something. Nope. But it didn't really matter much. The story was great.
My favorite line:
"Random purring can be quite unsettling."
