Catch of the Day

Kristan Higgins, read by Xe Sands. Tantor Media, unabridged, eight CDs, 10 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-0824-2
Diner owner Maggie Beaumont longs to meet that special someone. Unfortunately, her tiny town in Maine offers few prospects, and when she finally develops a crush, the object of her affection turns out to be the new parish priest. But Maggie soon notices Malone, a surly, taciturn lobsterman, and their relationship takes some unusual twists and turns. Narrator Xe Sands ably renders the good-hearted but awkward Maggie, who has a knack for babbling when she’s nervous, putting her foot in her mouth, and creating embarrassing misunderstandings. Sands captures the humor of Maggie’s mishaps and creates distinctive voices for the other characters, including a surly growl for Malone, an Irish lilt for Father Tim, a seductive purr for Maggie’s flirty friend, and quavering tones for Maggie’s elderly neighbor. The result is an engaging, humorous listen. A HQN paperback. (June)
