Enjoyable Read Jun 8, 2008
Easy, entertaining story to read. I look forward to reading more of Hatcher's novels.
Make it stop! Jun 20, 2006
This was a HARD book to finish. I never expected "Catching Katie" to be a literary masterpiece, yet somehow I still ended up utterly disappointed. This was my first Robin Lee Hatcher book, and I have to say, I am not motivated to read any of her others.
The largest and most obvious offense that this novel commits is the horrible cliché dialogue and narration - I literally groaned ALOUD several times per chapter at how cheesy and just plain ridiculous the writing was. I was SHOCKED to discover that with such aweful writing, Hatcher had once been the president of the Romance Writers of America!
The characters are so one-dimensional that they are downright unlikable - EVERY wholesome historical novel has the exact same characters! Their personalities and interactions were so predictable that I practically could have read this book with my eyes closed.
One redeeming quality about this book is the historical detail - the author did her homework on the Women's suffrage and American culture in the early 20th century. However, many times her narration begins to smack of a textbook passage - the detail is a bit too obvious for my liking.
One other positive thing I have to say about the novel is that the plot is slightly more original and has more twists than you might first suspect. It keeps you reading - but just barely.
Overall, I would not recommend this book. Do yourself a favor and go find something more intelligent, enjoyable, and flawlessly beautiful - I recommend books by Deeanne Gist and Liz Curtis Higgs.

I'd never read anything by Hatcher before, but "Catching Katie" makes me want to read all her novels. Hatcher's style is easygoing, and moves along while it still gives details. Unlike some genre novelists, she could be called a "good" writer, as well as someone who knows how to tell a good tale.
There's nothing very deep about this novel; it's a tale of a woman fighting her heart, and trying to balance career with love. But it's the perfect novel to read when you just want to get away from the world for a while.
