This is a fun story about Catie Bloom, a columnist for a magazine who writes about cooking and creating an organized home while giving the impression she has the perfect life and husband. Unfortunately, she doesn't know anything about most of what she writes. Catie can't cook, isn't married and is a slob.
It's funny to see how Catie makes everything look so easy when she is explaining things but in reality she doesn't have a clue and is being coached by someone who does. For the cooking segments, it's her sister who is a great cook and runs a restaurant that coaches Catie. I don't know how she is so well liked when so many people enable her by covering for her. She has come to expect that people will do whatever she needs to keep pulling off the deception.
I'm glad I won this funny book and am happy to recommend it if you are looking for a humourous romance. Catie's life is a comedy of errors that makes my life look great.
Could someone really be as self absorbed and terrible at cooking with lousy relationship skills? Seems so. The book does have funny spots but fell into blahness too much for it to leave me with a really good feeling, like a really good book. Will do.
A fun read that kept me entertained. The Misadventures of Catie Bloom sits well in the Rom-Com category. Brooke Stanton writes amusing characters who you can enjoy even when their world is falling apart.
I stumbled across this book, and I'm glad I did! It was a fun easy read. I have to say there were times when I didn't like Catie, but then she'd do something to redeem herself. I could relate to the sister dynamic, and I am now looking forward to reading Natalie's story!
