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 take on this book: I have got to say is that the Clutch a novel by Lisa Becker is totally a book that any woman would love to stay in for the night to read and live through Caroline. This book is a really great one and something that I would love to read again. I loved how each chapter was dedicated to a purse while also reflecting the man that Caroline was going to meet in that chapter.

I loved seeing how Mike and Caroline’s friendship went through all that it did while still keeping their friendship a friendship despite the flirting that sometimes happened. I really do love Caroline’s aunt Mimi. She is such a hoot and someone that I would love to have as an aunt. I mean every girl needs a ton of handbags.

Caroline is such an interesting character and not someone that is like the girl-next-door. She also is this smart woman despite letting people walk all over her. Mike is completely different compared to Caroline, not just that he is a male. He just oozes the playboy attitude and lifestyle. Granted he gave that life up to start up his bar and he also is a good person. Sure he flirts with every woman that he meets except he has a good heart that wants to try and help Caroline out, be it with her insecurities or her current relationship at the time.

This is a total chick lit but one that is so funny while also being romantic. I am giving this book five stars as the book is that good and completely something that I would recommend to my friends and family.

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
