Clutch: A Novel
Clutch: A Novel by Lisa Becker
HBL Note: I work with a lot of publicists (and love it!) but I really appreciate it when I get the opportunity to engage directly with an author. Lisa Becker reached out to me about her novel, Clutch, and it sounded like such a fun read! When I interview authors, I often ask them which book characters they'd be best friends with. I think I would be great friends with the main character, Caroline, a purse designer who is also single and on the dating scene. Having been married for ten years I think I would enjoy hearing Caroline's stories about "the 'Hobo' starving artist, the 'Diaper Bag' single dad, the 'Briefcase' intense businessman."
From the publisher:
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.
