Catch of the Day by Marcia Evanick

Misty Harbor Book 1
Author: Marcia Evanick

  • Paperback: 352 pages
  • Publisher: Zebra (February 2, 2002)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0821772414
  • ISBN-13: 978-0821772416

Misty Harbor, Maine, is awash in eligible bachelors - and as the only single gal in town, newcomer Gwen Fletcher is surrounded by potential suitors. The trouble is, she's got a restaurant to renovate, and the carpenter she's hired seems bent on avoiding her. What Gwen needs to do is convince wary Daniel Creighton she's not here to land a husband - and that it's high time he stopped pining after the one that got away...

Jilted Daniel's aversion to romance makes him the lone local guy who isn't after gorgeous Gwen. Still, lured by her renovation project, he can't resist lending a hand when she gets in over her head with a couple of overzealous admirers. Next thing he knows, small-town gossip has the two of them destined to sail off into the sunset together - and it dawns on Daniel that he's fallen for Gwen -- hook, line and sinker...


If you are in the mood for a cozy contemporary romance, then author Marcia Evanick has created a great series to feed your brain!

When Gwen Fletcher decides to move to Misty Harbor to fulfill her dream of opening her own restaurant, she didn't realize she would be finding a town in short supply of single women.  She quickly finds out that not only does she have a chance of creating a wonderful restaurant for people to dine at, but she also has become the talk of the town with the single men that are overflowing the town.  With every single man in town trying to win her affections, she has a hard time trying to get her business up and running. 

When Gwen hires single man Daniel Creighton, the attraction that builds between the two is inevitable.  Daniel though does not want to start a relationship.  He has a job to do and that is what he plans on doing.  

This was basically a predictable romance that you know with every page how it is going to turn out.  The author also likes to weave other stories into the book to set it up for more books in the series.  This made it hard to fully enjoy the romance of Gwen and Daniel.  Once you start getting towards the last half of the book though, you realize that all the stories she has weaved together also fit together as one.  

I enjoyed the book, I just wished we could have had more romance between Gwen and Daniel instead of the rush to get them together as a couple.  Predictability and rushed plot made this book not as appealing as it should have been.  I still want to read the next book in the series though just so I can see how the author plans to expand the stories of the other side characters. 

A good book for a rainy day to keep your craving for sweet romances going, but not one you should expect any surprise endings for. 


Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
