Catch of the Day- Six Sentence Bookish Thoughts #85



What Catch of the Day is about:
First date à la Maggie: Take one lovelorn diner owner (me), a generous helping of nosy local gossips, a dollop of envy at married sister's perfect life, a splash of divine intervention (my matchmaking priest). Combine ingredients with one adorable puppy, add a strong but silent lobsterman with a hidden heart of gold and watch the sparks fly.

Catch of the Day was the perfect book for me a few weeks ago. I was feeling a bit down but once I settled into Maggie's story I was swept away from my blues and totally involved in her own ups and downs. I loved this story because it just felt so real to me. I could absolutely envision Malone being a stoic, hard working, and drop dead gorgeous fisherman. There were times in the story that I laughed and a few where I cried (involves dogs and the human/pet connection).

Recommend? Yes, this was a winner for me! I'm quickly becoming addicted to Kristan's writing!

  1. I love when a book makes you feel a little better. Malone was a secondary character in Somebody to Love and I knew I'd want to read his story soon from how he was in that book. Glad you enjoyed it!

  10. I am so pleased you liked this one Staci...I absolutely fell in love with Malone and it was Malone that prompted me to email an author for the very first time. I was so excited when Kristan responded to my email wherein I practically begged for some more Malone. I was thrilled when she suggested we may not have seen the last of him. It was great to get to meet Kristan a few weeks ago and get my very well used copy of Catch of the Day signed.
