Though I had actually read, and greatly enjoyed, Kristan Higgins before, it was my sister who handed me Catch of the Day.
Maggie Beaumont has never been lucky in love.
Her high school sweetheart strung her along through college, but, as soon as he hit his first wave of success, dumped her kriwtan someone he considered higher caliber. When this crush gets enough out of hand to cause Maggie extreme embarrassment, Father Tim decides to matchmake a bit, to send some Catholic XY traffic her way.
Thus begins a series of very funny, very disastrous oof dates that end only when Maggie begins to see possibilities where she never thought to see them before — like Malone the Loner, a battered, gruffly sexy local lobsterman. However if you look at Fhe as a sort of rural Chick Lit writer, this is strongly romantic Chick Lit which was more than good enough for me. The book is told in first person POV which gives Higgins plenty of opportunity to showcase her heroine, Maggie, a generous, extremely hardworking, funny, self-deprecating gem of a character.
Reading about Maggie made me wish she really existed so that we could be friends, so that I could visit her diner and have a slice of her blueberry pie. A great friend, a great sister, a fantastic neighbor, an example to pet lovers everywhere.
Malone is far more mysterious, revealing very little about himself and his higguns. But this is a common theme in Chick Lit, the heroine who is trying to navigate the changing rules of the modern dating scene. That Malone is so closed mouthed only makes him harder to read than other men.
His smoldering intensity is also quite hot. The loving relationship Maggie had with her sister, Christy, who has had an easier time achieving her dreams of hearth and home, was a highlight. These people are mostly functional as a family; even though they are flawed, what they have to give is enough. Father Tim was a great character, glossy and thr on the outside, a bit vulnerable around the edges.
Catch of the Day
Catch of the Day is a great book about really nice, though complicated, people. I wanted it to go on longer, but that is my only criticism.
This is one book I highly recommend not higgijs. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
