Today it’s an absolute pleasure to be on the blog tour for The Catch by T.M. Logan. Many thanks to Tracy Fenton for my review copy of the book and my blog tour invite.
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 . . .
Having read all of T.M. Logan’s books so far, I can confidently say that The Catch is his best book so far and definitely my favourite! I loved every moment of this psychological thriller! There were some shocking twists that I didn’t see coming and I love it when that happens. This is a book that will be up there with my favourites by the time 2020 ends I have no doubt.
Ed was a character I felt connected to the minute he was introduced. An overprotective father, no one is really good enough for his “little girl” but it’s not until further into the plot that you realise why he’s like this. When Abbie introduces her new boyfriend Ryan to the family, he charms everyone except Ed who is convinced that Ryan isn’t “the catch” that everyone else seems to think he is. Yes, Ed thinks Ryan is just too good to be true and so there definitely must be “a catch”. I loved the ambiguity of the title here-is Ed just paranoid and looking for flaws where there are none or is Ryan the sociopath that Ed suspects him of being? There are so many twists and turns here that I had no idea!
I certainly don’t want to go any further into the plot than that as the less you know the better with this one. I love how T.M. Logan takes ordinary families in his books and then throws them head first into extraordinary circumstances that test their strengths and morals. Here his characters make decisions that we may or may not agree with but that we know we can’t judge as we haven’t ever been in that situation ourselves so have no idea how we would react! And that’s why I lived through this book alongside Ed, on the edge of my own emotions because who knows what we would do walking in another’s shoes.
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely! It’s a gripping thriller, the ultimate page turner for those who want to be kept on the edge of their seat. A cracking plot that constantly surprised me and with an ending that sent shivers down my spine. Brilliant!
