The Trouble with Catherine

Reading an author with only one story published is akin to having a one night stand. Sometimes you have a fierce need, just a little something to get you through the night, so you settle. You choose, take it home, whirl around in the sheets for a couple of hours and the next morning, oh the next morning. Walking the sidewalk to work, coffee in hand remembering all the delicious details. You tell the girls gathered around your desk all about it, inwardly enjoying the looks of envy. The joy, peace, the sense the world is an absolutely lovely place full of wonder and charm.

But then you start to wonder...was it really that good.  A few days pass. Life settles in once more.You know what would make this day just a little bit better...just a small hit of Aaron, Adam, Jason??? But you're stuck, after all it was just a one night aberration, a fluke. Never even got his number...

I first read The Trouble with Catherine almost seven years ago. -And do you want to know the trouble with Catherine- she is one of those characters that stays with you. Andes is one of those authors that stays with you. If you are like'll remember her name-AFTER SEVEN YEARS- and look for something new in the bookstore every once in a while and find....well...nothing.

Bear with has been seven years after all.

At 29, Catherine, a fiercely independent woman takes over her father's fish dealer business at New York City's Fulton Fish Market.(I'm not a native New Yorker but according to Google -this is a real place) Settling with fiancĂ©e Steve, a lawyer, Catharine is suddenly suffering from cold feet. Despite the fact Steve looks good on paper Catharine starts to wonder if  she's marrying the wrong person.

Constantly struggling with her sense of self, Catherine isn't entirely sure where she fits in. The true charm in the story comes from watching Catharine figure it all out.  Plus a supporting cast of family and friends truly make this story a hit.

So Andes please- get busy!
