Plus Size Goddess by Cathy McGough is Book 1 of the Goddess Creator Fashion Series. Christina Langdon has always been a little on the plump side, but she is trying to lose the weight. She works as a call center operator but goes to the gym for fun. Out of the blue, she receives an invitation to join a modeling boot camp. The invite has come from Goddess Creator Fashion, from the CEO no less, and now Christina is somewhat intrigued. She doesn’t realize that her past is about to be stirred up again and she must decide whether to let it bring her down or fight back and move on towards her goals.
Plus Size Goddess (Goddess Creator Fashion Series Book 1) by Cathy McGough is a hilarious yet heart-warming story. It’s a fun book with a serious undertone, one that so many people will understand and be able to identify with. So many of us have been or are struggling with weight and we still have problems identifying with our inner beauty. This story is about choosing to face the demons head-on and go for what we really want in life. This is a really well-written story; it’s only a quick read but so much has been packed into such a short space. The main protagonist is exceptionally well developed so that I almost feel as if I know her personally and I can definitely identify with her. I’m glad this is the first in a series because I am really looking forward to reading more of Christina’s tales.

Christina has made real progress losing weight, but it hasn’t been easy. While the kilos/pounds have dropped off, her mind hasn’t quite caught up with the ‘new’ her. So, when she gets invited to try out for a modelling role with Goddess Creator Fashions, she is both delighted (amazed, stunned, mystified) and immediately self-doubting. This is what makes her so believable, well that and her down-to-earth honesty. Christina has all the “I’m not worthy”, “it must be a joke” thoughts that anyone in her position might have. Thankfully, she has her mom and her BFF around and these interactions are wonderfully funny and natural… and effective!
There’s a lot of humour in this story, Christina doesn’t take herself too seriously. At the same time, the humour hides a lot of her neuroses, especially in public. But, it is her fundamental desire to be successful and happy that drives her on. As her confidence grows, she blossoms. There is no ‘new’ version of Christina, merely a stronger, more confident one.
I’m so glad this is a series, because I can’t wait for more of her shenanigans.

This was a fun little read about a young woman who’s been overweight most of her life but after implementing lifestyle changes and self-discipline she begins to see her inner beauty as well as her outward appearance. When she is given the offer of a lifetime, she’s forced to deal with her past and decide if she has the courage to move forward and go after what she wants. Plenty of humor drives this quick read as well as some sobering thoughts on society’s opinion of women. I have to say I loved her best friend even better than the main character!
