Format: Paperback
Jetting between New York, Los Angeles and English suburbia, Andi Watson skilfully captures the little idiosyncrasies that bring her locations to life. She proves equally adept with her characters too.
The story, that of an American women taking an internship on a remote parochial English newspaper, has a few enjoyable twists along the way, but never quite raises itself to the levels of surprise. Rather, it keeps itself safely within the territory of comfortable and predictable ChickLit fantasy. This isn’t necessarily a criticism though, and in fact the characterisations, wit and plot are strikingly reminiscent of a Marion Keyes novel. If those are your bowl of sushi then you’d most likely enjoy this too.

A Real Charmer 27 July 2002
By Girl Detective - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Andi Watson gets better with each project. His brushwork is a marvel of economy--the minimal style skillfully conveys subtle expression and mood for maximum impact and insight.
The story itself is fairly straightforward. Katherine, an aspiring American screenplay writer, heads to England to log some time at a local newspaper as creative fodder for her project. She partners with prickly Owen, and keeps in touch with her ambitious boyfriend back in the states. Conflict ensues and lessons are learned.
The ending is well done, if not a complete surprise. What makes this book shine, though, is the complex characterization that Watson imparts through dialogue, story and art.

Sweet, escapist and vaguely romantic 20 Feb. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Slow News Day is about escapism, but does so in a graceful way. Katherine is a San Francisco native, doing an internship in Wheatstone, England (as rural and remote as it may sound). Ostensibly there to learn a bit about small-town journalism, Katherine is also doing some sneaky research for a sitcom she's writing.

Slow News Day smells of romantic wish-fulfillment: Katherine manages to be successful at everything she does (journalism, television writing, a weekly column for the Times...) except for romance. And even that comes eventually. Slow News Day, however, does this in a less painfully self-conscious way. Andi Watson is telling a good, self-contained story with amusing, empathetic characters. The art - although not packed with detail - is an interesting, indicative style that helps keep things moving at a good pace.
