Famous for a Living

Influencer Cat Cranwell did the unthinkable—she signed a contract without reading it first. Now her business partner has disappeared, she’s being sued, and her lucrative brand partnerships are severing their connections with her. Retreating to a national park in Montana to work as the park’s social media specialist, Cat slowly acclimatizes to living in a small town, in the winter, in a rustic cabin. It helps that everyone is so friendly. Everyone but park ranger Zaiah Hudson, whose stoic face shows only disapproval. But somewhere between a hike to Cades Peak, the polar-bear plunge, and the 10th Annual Skijoring National Race, Cat and Zaiah become friends and maybe something more. This small-town opposites-attract romantic comedy features likable, relatable protagonists and a plethora of delightful secondary characters. Cat and Zaiah are well drawn, with just enough backstory to show their motivations. The city-versus-country theme is well executed, and the storyline is paced well.
VERDICT Ferguson’s (Meet Me in the Margins) chaste, heartfelt, hilarious novel is perfect for fans of Sophie Cousens and Jen DeLuca.
