Welcome to my stop on the #BlogTour for T. M. Logan’s latest book – The Catch.
Yet another book that has a fantastic cover design and a great blurb – I seem to be spoiled with books I can’t wait to read lately – long may it continue!
Great cover thou, right?!?
She says he’s perfect.
I know he’s lying . . .
Ed finally meets his daughter’s boyfriend for the first time. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be a real catch. Then Abbie announces their plan to get married.
There’s just one problem. Ed thinks there’s something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes. And it seems that only he can see it.
Terrified that his daughter is about to marry a man who is not as he appears, Ed sets out to uncover Ryan’s secrets. But the more he digs, the more he alienates Abbie and his wife Claire, who are convinced that Ryan is The One. And Ed has reasons of his own for wanting to keep his daughter safe. Reasons that may be affecting his judgement.
As he becomes increasingly obsessed with his future son-in-law, Ed’s own life begins to go into freefall. With the wedding date approaching fast, can he finally find the evidence to prove that Ryan has been lying to them, before it’s too late?
Totally over the top characters, a fairly predictable plot and a mountain of family drama – I couldn’t look away!
I found The Catch by T. M. Logan to be a very easy and very entertaining read. It took me about two days to get through the book, but I’m sure if I had been left alone and didn’t have the fun world of home-schooling and juggling other commitments I wouldn’t have put it down. It was exactly what I needed – a book that completely distracted me from the ongoing global pandemic.
I loved the characters, even if I didn’t like many of them. This wasn’t a book with in-depth great characterisation but instead, it was a binge worthy rollercoaster of a drama. The 2 main characters – Ed, the OVER protective Dad and Ryan the gorgeous and handsome yet not quite wholesome future son-in-law played their parts perfectly. T. M. Logan has the knack of writing characters that have a flair for the dramatic. I also loved Abbie (the daughter) although she wasn’t the strongest character and Claire (the mum) who attempted (but failed) to bring a bit of calm to a very crazy plot.
As I mentioned earlier – this was a totally over the top read but in a very good way – I am sure it would make the basis for a great TV series – I’m picturing Ben Badgley as Ryan.
But it wasn’t just the main characters I liked there was a lot of really good details – I feel like I learned something about how easy it is to pop a GPS tracker onto a car or get involved in some shady underground tracking.
The writing was good, the pacing suited the story and the last quarter of the book made for especially compulsive reading. It was an easy book to like and a lot of fun to read. And the ending although it was predictable in many respects, it suited the story and left me eagerly awaiting whatever T. M. Logan writes next. The Catch was a solid crime/thriller read and I would happily recommend it.
