    Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

    Rachel McCarrick is from a well-to-do family very set in their ways. Their plans for her life include finding the right husband — whom they've already chosen, someone she used to date — and becoming a proper socialite wife. That’s all well and good until Rachel falls in love over the summer with a guitar and flute playing goat herder-slash-midwife named Jose. So, to persuade her parents that she doesn’t need to marry her ex and in order to ultimately marry Jose, Rachel answers an ad Kevin placed, stating his willingness to do “anything legal” for $50,000. In Catch of the Day Kevin will be playing the role of her fiancé for a few weeks until her parents have accepted it or her intended is taken off the market. And so begins Christina Hamlett’s romantic comedy that is heavy on both the comedy and the budding romance.

    Catch of the Day is funny through and through. Kevin’s quick wit keeps Rachel on edge and helps the story move along at a pretty quick clip. We arrive in California and get immersed in Rachel’s world with her stuck-up mother who actually likes and is charmed by Kevin, her domineering father who sees him as nothing more than a fortune hunter, and her scheming grandfather who knows that what Kevin really wants can’t be found in her stock portfolio. Christina Hamlett writes a hilarious romance that has it all: misunderstandings, deception, an engagement of convenience, and a sexy Spaniard. The novelty of this story is that it is executed like a traditional Regency farce, but with a modern edge that makes it palatable and interesting to the contemporary reader.
