Review & Giveaway - clutch: a novel by Lisa Becker

Title: clutch: a novel
Author: Lisa Becker
Released: October, 2015

clutch: a novel is the laugh-out-loud, chick lit romance chronicling the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer who compares her unsuccessful romantic relationships to styles of handbags – the “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad, the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc. With her best friend, bar owner Mike by her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks a lot of Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line, endures her share of unworthy suitors and finds the courage to discover the “Clutch” or someone she wants to hold onto.

Clutch was a light, sweet, funny read! I absolutely loved the chapter names and how they related to Caroline’s dates.

“Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can,” she lifted her glass, “and a tall glass of Chardonnay to accept the things I can’t. That’s about the only gospel I can get behind.”

Caroline, purse addict and handbag designer, is looking for the one. Unfortunately, she is only finding losers. Her best friend since business school, Mike is with her along the way for the entire hilarious journey. He is a bar owner and keeps her covered in the wine area. 

I absolutely loved Mike in this story! He is such a good friend, even if he is a bit of a man-whore. I liked Caroline by the end of the story, but at times, especially in the beginning, she was a bit annoying with her inability to confront people. 

“It was a revelation. How had she not seen it before?”

While at times predictable, and quite a bit repetitive, I did enjoy this story. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lighthearted, funny, sweet read.
