MY REVIEW -
What Miranda had thought to be a monotonous and boring vacation turned out to be a once in a lifetime adventure...
 
 
Catch was a short, and fun read. An adventure book compressed in a novella that will keep you on your toes as Miranda search for the next clue to complete the contents of the purse that was snatched on the Las Vegas Strip.
 
 
All she wanted to have were the old photographs at the bottom of the purse – she doesn’t mind her cards, phone, or even the money – all she wanted where the photos which served as the last of the memorabilia her grandmother has. So when the ‘thief’ suddenly gave her the chance to have it back – she didn’t hesitate to do so.
 
 
Curiosity got the best of her, but how much is she willing to risk having it all back?? But more than the contents of the purse, the ‘thief’ had caught her interest. She was off to college, and have a great future ahead of her – is it possible for her to fall in love with him??!! But there was more to the thief than he lets on…
 
 
Catch is fast-paced, adventure-packed with a surprising romance and a lovely ending wrap in a novella you wouldn’t want to miss!
 RATING:
★ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.★

EXCERPT -
“Hello?” His voice sounded deep, but young at the same time. 
Miranda stiffened. Across the table, Julia’s eyes widened and her mouth fell open.“U-um …,” Miranda stuttered, unable to finish her sentence. 
“Is this Miranda?” 
Her heart had already been pounding, but now it was banging so hard in her chest it felt like it was trying to jump up her throat. She should say no, but her curiosity got the best of her. “Yes,” she answered in a raspy voice. 
“Thought so. Is there a reason you’re calling?” 
You stole my purse, asshole! 
But she wasn’t about to say that. “Um …” 
Was that all she could say? Sheesh. 
“I can’t believe you ran after me,” the guy said, confirming he was the purse thief. “Nobody’s ever done that before.” 
Miranda noticed he didn’t exactly have an accent, but he sounded refined somehow, every consonant and vowel carefully placed. Nothing about any of this felt quite right. Was this how criminals acted? 
“Nobody has ever called their own phone, either—at least not before I could strip it and sell it,” he continued before she could say anything. “I’ll give you points for that.” 
Miranda straightened in her chair, anger surging through her body. She felt cold and hot at the same time. With the anger came courage. “What do you mean points? Is this a game to you?” 
“Maybe.” 
Miranda shot a “what the hell?” look at Julia. “Who are you?” she said into the phone. 
“You can call me Ollie.” 
“You’re telling me your name?” she snorted, trying not to laugh. 
“Who said that was my name?”
