    Sadly town matriarch Millicent Wyndham concludes that her beloved Misty Harbor, Maine is dying. Money will not save the town that she cherishes because she lived there with her beloved but now deceased Jefferson. The town needs single women as the female natives seem to always move to the big city where opportunities are plentiful. The local youthful males like everywhere else follow the trail of the women. Statistically speaking, her generation looks like the final act for the dying town. Millicent offers her Philadelphia chef Internet chat friend Gwen Fletcher an opportunity to open her own restaurant in Misty Harbor. Insanely, Gwen relocates.

    Like hounds on the scent of a fox, every single man and a few married ones from seemingly eight to eighty plus pursue Gwen except for the carpenter renovating the restaurant. The once jilted Daniel McCord rejects joining the mambo line even if he finds himself attracted to the newest resident. Gwen wants to only open her facility and not be the CATCH OF THE DAY unless the angler is Daniel.

    Though quite humorous, CATCH OF THE DAY contains a serious undertone that enables the audience to be amused yet understand the seriousness of dying small towns. The story line is superb as Marcia Evanick pulls off her double-edged plot through a strong cast. The lead couple will delight the audience and the eccentric chorus line of male pursuers will keep the readers attention until the novel is finished. Hopefully, Ms. Evanick hooks her fans with more tales from Misty Harbor.
