From Park Avenue to the Parks Department — the world’s most beloved social media star is about to get a rude awakening.
Synopsis – With millions of followers, Cat Cranwell is adored worldwide. But when an app partnership goes wrong, Cat suddenly finds herself shunned from the community that not only fed her soul all these years but paid her bills. When Cat’s uncle offers her a position as a social media strategist at a small national park in Montana to get away from the city, Cat hesitantly accepts the opportunity. Thrust into the wilderness, Cat’s relationship with social media shifts as she explores her new surroundings, embraces a slower lifestyle, and gets to know the rugged ranger, Zaiah, who believes social media is the root of everything wrong with the world.
Famous for a Living is a fun, quirky, feel-good, humorous contemporary novel I thoroughly enjoyed reading! The story hit all the right spots, including a surprisingly impactful message about savoring the moment rather than looking at it through a phone screen to capture for social media. Melissa Ferguson did a great job with each character arc. Zaiah was the perfect romantic interest, and Cat’s personal growth was inspiring. I loved their meet-cute and how their relationship developed from misunderstanding to mutual respect. While romcoms aren’t typically known to include transformative life lessons, Famous for a Living left me pondering my attachment to my phone and social media. In a world where most things are only a tap away, it’s challenging to disconnect, but Cat’s journey into the wilderness provided a valuable lesson I hope to hold onto. Perhaps it’s time to plan my own mountain getaway 😉
