It left me with a warm and cozy feeling. Not the traditional read for me, but I enjoyed that differences in the books I usual read. For example; we dont hear the male perspective, first adjective to come to mind for female leading character is Quirky, no description of sexual activities and contains a small town of easy to keep track of supporting characters. I seriously would watch this on say Lifetime or Hallmark.

This is another hit from Krisan Higgins. I just recently discovered her and had to read all her books. Her stories are about normal women, not perfect or extremely beautiful creatures. She makes me laugh out loud with all their escapades. I highly recommend this book and this author. Can't wait for her next book to come out.

I had to take a second look at the author's name! This felt like one of Janet Evanovich'S novel. This book will make you laugh out loud, and it will also make you cry.

Oh, but this was a joy. A standout among Kristan Higgins romances, all of which are arguably charming. But CATCH OF THE DAY just has a little something extra in it. It's hard to pinpoint what, exactly. Is it the setting of Gideon's Cove, which celebrates the eccentricities and tight-knitted community that has been romanticized about American small town culture for forever? Is it Malone and Maggie's atypical romance, which initially smolders, unbeknownst to all, and all of a sudden catches fire? Whatever it is, it carries this whole story so well. I can't wait to return to Gideon's Cove someday.

Wonderful book! I laughed, cried, and hoped it would never end.

This is a quick, easy read. This is also a very drawn out romance. I didn't understand the connection between the two. Heck, until the final chapter, she didn't even know his first name!

The hero is one of those strong and silent types. Emphasis on the silent. He's not much of a talker. He mostly says 1-2 words max. Emphasis also on surly. It's overdone. The author must have mentioned his angry tendencies about twenty times. I get it. Don't hit me over the head with it. I didn't understand what the heroine saw in him or what he saw in her. Their connection happens too fast for it to be believable. His character needed to be developed a lot more.

The storyline in Catch of the Day repeats itself so many times. The story needed to move along with more focus on the hero and heroine. Much of the story revolves around the heroine's married twin sister, a very handsome Catholic priest, and her parents. All them are interesting, but focusing on them so much takes away from the heroine and hero's relationship. The heroine is annoyingly immature. She can't stand up for herself. You'd think she was nineteen years old when in fact she's in her 30s. I understand in these chick lit type books the heroine often embarrasses herself, but this heroine was incredible at it.
