The Catch – Book Review

The Catch: The perfect escapist thriller from the Sunday Times million-copy bestselling author of Richard & Judy pick The Holiday by [T.M. Logan]

She says he’s perfect. I know he’s lying . . .

He caught me watching, and our eyes met. That was when it hit me.
There was something not quite right about my daughter’s new boyfriend . . .

The doting father

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.

The perfect fiancé

There’s just one problem. Ed thinks Ryan is lying to them.

Who would you believe?

All of Ed’s instincts tell him his daughter is in terrible danger – but no-one else can see it. With the wedding date approaching fast, Ed sets out to uncover Ryan’s secrets, before it’s too late . . .

The Catch is such utterly compulsive reading you just *have* to talk about it. it broke all records for the number of comments left when serialised by Pigeonhole.

Genre:- Psychological Thriller

I had always wanted to read T.M Logan’s books as I have heard many raving views about his book. This book was no exception and I finally got this book.

Abbie, Ed’s beloved daughter and only child introduces her boyfriend Ryan Wilson to her parents, Ed and Claire. When Ryan proposes to Abbie and wants to marry her in a month’s time, both Ed and Claire were shocked and surprised at their sudden engagement and their sudden plan to get married soon in a matter of weeks. While Claire seemed to warm up to Ryan, Ed was suspicious about Ryan and thinks that something is hidden underneath Ryan’s perfect character…

Personally, I did like the book but I didn’t die hard for the book. The first part of the story was a bit boring but it started to build up its climax gradually from the middle towards the end. Some parts of the story was a bit unrealistic–for example, I do understand Ed’s concern about Ryan but then who on earth would risk on their own job to stalk behind Ryan? That part was a bit unrealistic. But other than that, the ending was a nail biting scene and over all it was actually a great thriller.

Worth four stars in my opinion!
