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.
Since this is an audio book review, I want too start with the narration. I really like this narrator. It was very pleasant to listen to. As for the story, I have mixed feelings. From someone who loves bags, I love the concept of this story comparing men to bags. I like seeing into the different dates she had. While I like seeing the random guy she went out with, it overshadowed the relationship between Caroline and Mike. Because of the their story seemed rushed and incomplete. I really like their interaction and story arc. I wanted to know more about them. Mike was definitely swoon worthy. Caroline was funny but I just couldn’t connect with her character. I give the story 3 stars.
