More About the Author

Having been born and raised in Atlanta, Cathleen is a bonafide "Georgia Peach" with her stilettos firmly planted in the South. Despite whisking her characters off to glamorous places like New York or Beverly Hills, she has no intentions of relocating herself to a city where good ol' fashioned sweet tea isn't readily available. However, she would have her boarding pass in hand in a New York minute for a shopping trip off Rodeo Drive.

Cathleen currently resides in a small suburb of Atlanta with her husband, three children and two rambunctious dogs. She is also unabashedly obsessed with all things Superman, and when not writing you'll likely find her watching more television (usually Superman related) than any one person should, eating chocolate and then running countless miles to negate the effects of the creamy devil.

Her writing influences include Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk, Helen Fielding, and Fannie Flagg.

Everleigh in NYC is her debut novel.

This is a really fun romantic comedy. Everleigh longs for a life as a fashion writer in NY. She also longs (if secretly) for a man she can trust, who's mind is an open book. She gets her wish, a little too literally. Is this small town girl really made for big city life? This was sort of a fantasy read for me. No one will ever mistake me for a model, no gorgeous Australian will ever ask for the salt simply as an excuse to talk to me. Fantasy or no, it was a fun ride. This is a great book, and Ms. Holst's wit and eloquence are on brilliant display here.

Love this debut! 18 April 2011
By Samantha J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was so super excited to read the first book from Cathleen Holst, someone who has become a friend and mentor of mine since launching Chick Lit Plus and making the plunge into writing. And she did not disappoint! Everleigh in NYC opens with southern belle Everleigh Carlisle visiting New Orleans with bestie Christina. Since Everleigh was just dumped for the other woman- in this case, one of her friends- she knows a vacation to the Big Easy is in order. While there, Everleigh and Christina visit a voodoo priestess, and Everleigh makes a wish. The next morning, unable to remember the past night events, Everleigh doesn't realize that she made a life altering wish with the priestess.

Two years later, everything is falling in place for Everleigh. She got hired for her dream job- a columnist at the ultra glam premiere New York magazine- Trés Magnifique. Her dream of moving to the Big Apple from Georgia and making a name for herself are finally happening. She also meets a man, the gorgeous and funny and hard working Robert Cates, but there are a few problems. For one, she can hear his inner thoughts. For two, he is her new boss, taking over the small newspaper company that Everleigh works for. Tucker Tales also happens to be started by Everleigh's father, and is in danger of going under. Can Everleigh really leave for NYC and leave behind the family business? And why can she Robert's thoughts?

Everleigh in NYC is a hit for Cathleen Holst! The story was fast-paced, the writing was witty, and the characters were full of charisma. I loved the voodoo/hearing thoughts aspect, that mystery gave this chick lit novel a little something extra. But the pages are also filled with to die for fashions, loving friends, boyfriend dramas, and an extremely relatable heroine that faces very real decisions. I highly enjoyed this debut novel, though there were a few odd grammar and spelling mishaps towards the end that I noticed, but overall, really fantastic read. I definitely recommend!
Fabulous first novel from author Cathleen Holst! 7 Feb. 2011
By cgraceh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fantastic debut from Cathleen Holst. A story that introduces readers to a relatable and lovable heroine, Everleigh Carlisle, a true southern belle, who dreams of making it at a big time women's fashion magazine in the big city of New York. Trouble is she's still working at her family's paper, Tucker Tales, in Tucker, Georgia and not sure if she wants to leave her roots behind. That is until one night in New Orleans, on a vacation witth her bff, Christina, after a little too much partying leads them to a visit with a voodoo priesttess who grants EVerleigh an unspoken wish and changes everything. This story takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, romance and unpredictable happenings from Tucker to New York and back a couple times. Definite recommended read to all my girlfriends and all of theirs. I hope their will be more novels to look forward from Cathleen Holst.
Charming chick lit, Southern-style 4 Mar. 2011
By Beth Hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Everleigh in NYC is a charming tale of a true Southern gal with a big dream and a curious heart. Fast paced and witty, the story takes the reader on a wild ride as Everleigh Carlisle's life traverses from Georgia to New Orleans and to New York as she pursues her dream of working for a fashion magazine. It's all here - love, humor, romance, a fun friendship, fashion, and betrayal. And there's even a side visit to a voodoo priestess that sets Everleigh's life spinning out of control.

Author Cathleen Holst did a bang-up job with her debut novel. Everleigh in NYC is a real "girlfriend" kind of book and it was also loads of fun to read.
