Review

Fans of contemporary romances should definitely give CATCH ME A CATCH a read, as with a great plot and likable main characters, it can't be classed as anything but an excellent contemporary romance. Reviewed by Danielle G for The Romance Reviews

About the Author

Born into a family of voracious readers and consumed by the family affliction, it seemed the natural next step was to write. I started in school, mentally writing poetry while running around the hockey pitch. Nowadays, I keep my running to a minimum, and write instead. I live in Ireland, and when I’m not reading or writing, am usually to be found in traffic, driving ‘Mum’s taxi.’

Immediate, heart-stopping action marks the start of Catch Me a Catch, by Sally Clements. Her fast-paced prose drops us into the center of storm and the struggles of sailor Jack Miller. He's just coincidentally sailing right into an Irish matchmaking festival, although fate has more in store for him than finding an easy match.

Annie Devine has sort of inherited this matchmaking gig, and she's determined to do a good job at it. Jack is plainly a challenge to her. Their initial conversation is hysterical -- partly because we suspect they aren't quite on the same page from the start! Clements shows a remarkably light touch with believable and sometimes cross-purposed dialogue, throughout.

In fact, each of our characters are more complex than they appear. This will be no straightforward, predictable romance. And all sorts of things from their lives keep butting in to complicate matters. Who knew that making the world's best almond praline truffle could pose such a conundrum? Although, certainly more important matters put Annie and Jack at loggerheads, as well. Is it alarming or merely stereotypical that they each reach for booze to cope with emotions? I'm not sure, but it cropped up often enough to be distracting.

Clever and subtle use of words and names (loved the pub named "The Maiden's Arms," Or even just Annie's own: the 'Devine' girl of his dreams, and similar) is fun and interesting, especially at the start. Now and again, action or a challenge seems to be resolved unconvincingly fast, but this indeed is a small complaint. Overall there was a nicely balanced blend of emotion, action and sizzling interaction. Annie's sense of being watched - indeed by the whole quaint community, adds so much to the charming Irish village backdrop.

Sally Clements pens a unique romance with all the flavors of Ireland. It's almost like the wee people have their hands in the lives of the people in Durna. This is the kind of small town many of might wish we could live in. Excellent characters inhabit the pages with Anne's parents and the townspeople. Dialogue and situations are often funny and based in a kind of reality easy to relate to.

The fledgling relationship between Jack and Anne hits every pitfall possible. Jack, the billionaire man-about-town seems to get himself into a lot of hot water. The author weaves this with some edge of our seat wondering and guessing about what can be done to make it better. We seem to be drawn into their emotions as the ups and downs hit them.

This tale moves quickly with a lot of smiles on the pages. I found myself relating more to the individuals than I sometimes do in novels. Most readers have probably experiences similar situations as the match-seekers or the couple. I truly enjoyed this author's way of building a story and hope to read more in the future. - Dee Dailey

CATCH ME A CATCH is an excellent contemporary romance that follows Annie, who by tradition has to be a matchmaker for the annual Durna matchmaking festival and Jack who is forced to stop in Durna when his boat is struck by lightening. As Jack helps Annie out with the festival, they struggle to deny their chemistry.

The plot of CATCH ME A CATCH is interesting, and while similar plots have been done many times before, there are some major differences in CATCH ME A CATCH that makes it seem fresh and stand out from the many novels in its genre.
The main characters are rather likable, even though they do have some moments when they can be rather irritating, but there isn't any stand out secondary characters, as there are quite a few different characters mentioned but they are mainly in the distance, which means the readers can't get to know and like them. The relationship between the main characters was developed well, as it doesn't seem too rushed and all the complications with their relationship seemed realistic.

Fans of contemporary romances should definitely give CATCH ME A CATCH a read, as with a great plot and likable main characters, it can't be classed as anything but an excellent contemporary romance.

Pretty good book with well-flawed characters, a fun setting and well, chocolate! I would have preferred less sex descriptions and more detailed conflict resolution, but over all its a fun read...probably great for vacation novels read by the pool.

Having the reluctant matchmaker find true love was a terrific storyline for CATCH ME A CATCH. Annie Devine was absolutely charming and it was wonderful to get to know her. If anyone ever deserved a HEA ending, she did, since she worked hard for her success as a chocolatier but put her career on hold to help out her family when her father, the real matchmaker, became ill. The very last thing that Jack Miller, the alpha male hero, was thinking about when a lightening strike on his yacht forced him ashore at Annie's village, was to land right in the middle of the annual matchmaking festival. Jack had a lot of love to share but he'd hidden it away from everyone, including himself, due to his traumatic childhood.

I loved all the characters who all had delightful personalities and the dialogues were both authentic and entertaining. There were a number of editing mistakes but I enjoyed reading the story so much that they didn't bother me. The writing style was very smooth and flowed easily from beginning to end.

Reading this book was a lovely reading experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read romantic stories.
