Review

"The author does a great job of engaging the reader with a fast-paced storyline full of intrigue, suspense and romance. I look forward to reading the second book in the Janet Maple Series."

                                                           ~Jersey Girl Book Reviews

 
"There is more to this book than a cute cover. It has a great story line, interesting characters, some romance, and a lot of suspense. I look forward to discovering what happens next in the Janet Maple Series."

                                                          ~Gin's Book Notes

"If it's one thing I love, it's a good mystery novel. I thought To Catch a Bad Guy had all the elements of intrigue, and it was hard for me to put this down!" 

                                                           ~Chick Lit Plus Reviews

From the Inside Flap

What the readers are saying: 

Janet Maple - a great new heroine. 

I have read all of Marie Astor's books. I have loved each and everyone of them. Hope she does a sequel To Catch a Bad Guy. 

Janet Maple is an appealing character who has had to climb her way up with good old fashioned hard work and for her efforts has been knocked back down to square one. As she tries to climb that ladder once again we see she is a person of integrity and hope for her success.

I would have to say I am quite disappointed in this book. The plot seemed great, but as I started reading I felt like I should have picked something else. As I'm starting to notice, a lot of these books achieve the job of wanting you to continue to read the book, but they don't want you to continue reading books by the author.

This book spent so much time on nonsense it ridiculous. It went on an on and on that i skipped through 30% (kindle app shows the percentage) of the book to get to where the Dean/Dennis teamed up with Janet.

And the very climax of the book was a complete bust ! After all it took leading up to it, it maybe lasted 2 pages, 3 tops. Then the book was just....over.

I understand this is a series but geez this book needs a lot of help!

Definitely wont be continuing this series. Good luck to those who brave that challenge.

This book was slow. There wasn't much detail and at the end major plot parts were skipped. Displeased with the abrupt ending. None of the story lines were "tied up" or finished. I really can't recommend this book. It gets one star because it was free, otherwise it would have received ZERO stars.

Twenty-nine year old Janet Maple has spent the last four years as an NYC Assistant District Attorney in the Investigation Division, when her position was "downsized" by her ex-boss Alex Kinglsey, who happens to also be her ex-boyfriend.

Janet's childhood best friend, Lisa Foley, offered her a position as an Assistant General Counsel at the prestigious Bostoff Securities investment/trading firm. Janet thinks her career is on an upswing, but as she learns more about the firm, she discovers questionable practices and has to decide what to do with her findings.

Dennis Walker is a top-notch white collar crime investigator in the Department of Treasury's Investigations Unit. Dennis' current assignment has him infiltrating Bostoff Securities by going undercover as Dean Snider, Chief IT Analyst. He is responsible for gathering additional evidence for their investigation into Bostoff Securities. So far everything that he has learned about the firm indicates corruption with deep financial violations. The most difficult part of his assignment is to remain undiscovered and not allow his cover to be blown.

When Janet discovers the firm's questionable practices, Lisa blows them off as nothing, so Janet turns to the sympathetic ear of Dean Snider, not knowing his true identity. An attraction and friendship forms between Janet and Dean, but Dennis/Dean becomes torn between his professional obligation and his personal attraction for Janet. Can Dennis/Dean have the best of both worlds, or does he have to choose? What will Janet do when she discovers Dean's true identity and profession? Can Janet and Dennis work together to catch a bad guy?

To Catch A Bad Guy is an intriguing romantic suspense story.

Another wonderful read from Marie Astor! I ready Lucky Charm, On the Rim of Love, This Tangled Thing Called Love and loved them all. I was worried that the good streak might run out, but thankfully I was proven wrong. Marie Astor did it again - To Catch a Bad Guy is a wonderfully entertaining read filled with romance, suspense, and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages.

Not a bad plot. However the the gratuitous use of the "F" word was a huge turn off. I don't like to hear the word and I don't like to read it. It simply was not necessary to the plot and it ruined the entire story for me. I stopped reading at exactly that word and returned the book. Who needs it!

I am usually very critical when reading this genre. I love a good mix of chemistry and storyline and this book had it all. I'm so please to find a series that I can really connect with and I already downloaded the second book and can't wait to start. This is what I love about finding free books that are a series. You get to test them out and when you love one the way I loved this one, you go and get the rest. Great book!
