REVIEW for The Catch

Thank you so much to the author, Louisa McCormack for her generosity in sending me a copy of her great book.

TITLE: The Catch
AUTHOR: Louisa McCormack
GENRE: Fiction
DATE: 2008
RATING: 4 Stars

I am not usually a big fan of Canadian fiction. However, The Catch has all the elements that make it a wonderfully perfect read.Louisa McCormack has absolutely captured the essence of the perfect chik lit story. She has created a flawed but adorable main character in Minerva. She has given Minerva a brilliant cast of characters and more importantly she has set her novel in one of the most beautiful places in the world PEI.I loved this smart novel - it touched my heartstrings, made me laugh and made me want to move to the Island immediately.The writing is rich and full of deep, touching subtext and I found myself reading page after page to find out about Joe - would he and Minerva end up together or not? Wow! what else can you ask for - friends, LOVE AND PEI. I am jealous.

I think Louisa McCormack is so great. Have you read her first book, Six Weeks to Toxic?
