This book is simply wonderful. I have been reading it over and over almost once a year for every summer because it is absolutely guaranteed to put me into a great mood. I always laugh out loud when I read it, even in public. Truly a gem!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Naylor Catches You
My husband purchased Dog Handling for me for a Christmas present and it took me a while to actually get to it. Once I actually read the book, I loved everything that Naylor wrote. I went and bought all of her books. Catching Alice was absolutely fabulous. I love the way Alice doesn't care what her American 'friends' say about her stalker, she thinks it great. It's so fun to see all the different views on a secret admirer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

To be honest, the cover of this book initially caught my interest. I had never read one of Naylor's novels, but now I'm hooked. The approach she takes to a lot of the stuff that plagues women, especially younger ones, resonated with me. She is a great author who creates stories that are so much fun to read, I was willing to allocate more time than I had to read her books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

high drama, low humor, and raunchy romance
<P>Alice Lewis is going through some bad times. The former English secretary lost her job due to a merger, is evicted from her apartment, and finally dumped by her boyfriend. Some of her friends have allowed Alice to sleep on their sofas. Her best friend Tash learns of Alice¿s predicament and insists her pal join her in Los Angeles where she will find her a job and become roommates. A depressed Alice meekly agrees, but from the time she deplanes at LAX, she feels like a visitor from another planet. <P>Tash obtains a high profile publicist job for Alice, who surprises herself by being quite good at it. Alice goes out on a date with a man into S&M, learns how to be a California Girl, and picks up a stalker. Patrick Wilde first saw Alice in England and was very attracted to her then and has followed her to the States. His behavior towards Alice leaves Patrick uncomfortable because he always gets the girl, but she proves elusive. They must clear up several misunderstandings if they are to have a warm relationship together. <P>Clare Naylor has a delightful sense of humor that she imbues in her characters, who land in situations that leave readers wondering whether to gasp or laugh. The entire cast is well drawn so that the audience understands each one of the key players. CATCHING ALICE includes high drama, low humor, and raunchy romance that will make Ms. Naylor a name in the States. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
