Catch Me If You Can

I’m adding a new segment to my blog.
I often see posts from others on social media asking for ideas for their next read. I thought a book highlight segment might be fun and well received.

I am happy to start of my new segment with Catch Me If You Can by Carole Brown. Carole has written nearly twenty books and Catch Me If You Can is the first book in her new The Nursery Rhyme series. If you’re an animal lover who likes to read cozy mysteries, this is the book for you.

Let’s look at this light-hearted mystery.

The big cat sat on the oversized rock, ears pointed toward the sky, every muscle taut, every sense at the ready.

“S-s-shut up and f-f-forget it. You’ve s-seen nothing and know nothing. I won’t warn you again. G-g-got it?”

The cat’s head swiveled, his ears twitching as if catching the hint of threat in the whisper. A soft hiss slid from his open mouth and reinforced the overtone of evil pressing in upon the scene. Within hours, lies and dark secrets are slithering all over the campground.

Coaxed into finding the animal killer at Jamieson’s Outfitters, Tara Layne, with her sidekick, Boet, is welcomed by a threatening whisper and the unfriendly eyes of a rugged and devastatingly handsome manager. Wesley Clarke, both interesting and frustrating, holds an attraction for Tara that is both primitive and exasperating.

Intermingled with her search, Tara deals with her own heartbreaking buried secrets. When a strange old Native American probes into the recesses of her heart, he encourages her to face her bitter feelings.

As Tara closes in on her search, she finds herself—and Boet—the target of someone who’s determined to outrun and outsmart her. Someone determined not to get caught.

His Theme: 

Fun as fast as you can, you can’t catch me.

The Question:

Can Tara run fast enough to catch this real live Gingerbread boy before he decides to get rid of her and Boet?
