The heroine was such a doormat and brought public humiliation on herself. Still the story sucked me in hoping for a big turnaround that never really happened. I doubt this new relationship will last any longer than the others considering the way it started. Maggie has had some disastrous relationships but she keeps trying to find the right man. ( )

Maggie has a knack for getting into embarrassing situations. One such situation? Having the entire town know that she's in love with the local priest, Father Tim. Second situation? Going to a big church dinner completely smashed and declaring her undying love to said priest. Now Father Tim is determined to hook Maggie up with someone suitable. The dates end up being one huge disaster after another. But at least they're entertaining the locals who patronize Maggie's diner. While being stood up by one of those dates, Maggie finds herself cornered by her ex-boyfriend and his pregnant wife. Surprisingly it's Malone, the local recluse, who comes to her rescue.

I loved Malone. He remains an extremely quiet man throughout the whole book, but Higgins manages to show how much he likes Maggie through his actions. Maggie on the other hand was somewhat annoying. She's constantly making bad decisions that put her in embarrassing situations. Reading those scenes were pretty painful. Maggie also sort of stalks Malone a few times and has the tendency to run her mouth. I seriously wanted to shake some self-awareness into that girl and tell her to get a grip on herself. Despite my annoyances with Maggie, I enjoyed the storyline and side characters. I'll definitely be picking up another Higgins novel soon. ( )

First Thought when Finished: Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgans was delightfully funny and a good summertime read! This was my second Kristan Higgans book and I have now moved her to my limited contemporary romance romance list. She makes me laugh.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Xe Sands / Length: 10 hrs and 13 mins

Xe did a fantastic job with Catch of the Day. I had fun listening to her nail the humor and making me swoon.

Two incredibly flawed individuals find each other. Really enjoyed this one. ( )
  jkgrage | Nov 24, 2014 |
This is laugh-out-loud funny at times, a light-hearted story of a woman who owns a diner on the coast of Downeast Maine. In her 30's, she feels her biological clock ticking away at the same time she has a serious crush on the local priest. A twin with a close-knit family, Maggie loves her community but is ready to settle down. Too bad her hot romance is with a non-talker whom everyone thinks is churlish and gloomy. ( )
