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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My Rating: 4.5 stars.

CLUTCH is a quick read/listen. I adored Caroline and Mike's friendship. I laughed, I cried. The comparison of men and handbags. I honestly wish I were in the story. It was fascinating. The audio version of this book was well executed. Suzanne Barbetta did a great job reading. I enjoyed her voice. The audio itself was clear. No jumps or missing pieces. I've not read Lisa Becker's works before this. I really enjoyed her writing. And I've got a feeling I am gonna love anything I read from her now.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lisa Becker. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
