Size Matters by #CathyNovak @shewritespress #BookReview

 
John Frederick is a man of considerable substance, in every sense of the word. Rich, intelligent, reclusive, and very large, John Frederick lives to eat. His everyday needs are tended to by Mrs. Floyd, his house manager, and by a never-ending parade of personal chefs. 
Enter Lexie Alexander, the latest applicant for that once-again vacant position. A young woman of magical sensibilities, fresh out of culinary school and still recovering from a recent personal tragedy, Lexie lives to cook. As time passes, a love of food, musical comedy, and tea begins to weave a connection between John Frederick and his new chef but then a major medical crisis completely turns life at Frederick House upside down, threatening the bond John Frederick and Lexie have forged. 
Size Matters is the story of how people interact with each other and with the world, and what happens when the structure of a person s life, their self-image, and all their familiar coping mechanisms are shattered."




Cathryn Novak has had a years-long love affair with words that began as soon as she could read. After graduating with a degree in communications and public policy from UC Berkeley, Cathryn did a stint in advertising before devoting the rest of her professional career to public service. During that period she wore many hats, including speech writer, policy analyst, and investigative report writer. Her monograph on the Los Angeles Police Commission, The Years of Controversy, was published by the Police Foundation in Washington, DC. Now retired, Cathryn has returned to her first love: the world of fiction. Size Matters is her first published novel.

This book an okay book. I honestly was not all that impressed with the story or the characters in Size Matters. The plot was just weak and didn't really catch my attention. There was no backstory or any good development of the characters either. Overall this book was not all that memorable for me. 

Book in a Pinch
Size matters is a man coming to terms with his weight at the expense of others.
