Book Description

Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa. But when Rosa’s pregnancy goes amiss and enemies sabotage her new career, she finds herself leading a chaotic double life of lies and deception, hiding a shameful secret from all, especially husband Declan who appears in the throes of a nervous breakdown. Meanwhile she’s agreed to unmask the notorious Crouch End Creeper, a burglar terrorizing their neighbourhood. Little does she know that her meddling, assisted by fellow mothers (the Wednesday Once Weeklies) and the Neighbourhood Watch, will lead their dangerous opponent to murder. And that it's not only the tall elegant transvestite who is placing herself at risk...

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud Entertainment! April 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

After reading Looking For La La I was excited about the continuing story of Cathy, the Crouch End housewife with the uniquely wacky take on her crazy life. I loved the first book and hoped to love the second.
BINGO! The sister writing team that comprises Ellie Campbell did it again.
The protagonist, Cathy is neurotic, insecure and reflects the worst side in all of us with enough bad choices to send her life in a humorous downward spiral. If you like the I Love Lucy type of humor that leads the reader from one small disaster that snowballs into a colossal mess, you'll love this book. It's laugh out loud funny, typically British and wonderful entertainment. I read this breath of fresh air after reading Wool, a dystopian Sci Fi Fantasy that left me in need of a laugh. Cathy and her neighbors, friends and co-workers are written as real people but it's her perception that is the real entertainment here. Like a stand up comic, Cathy shows us the funnier side of life.
Do you need a chuckle with a good story line? This book has it all - lovable characters, plot twists, and clean writing. You don't need to read the first one, but its a hoot too.
Well done Ellie Campbell.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sister team Pam Burks and Lorraine Campbell have done it again. “To Catch a Creeper” is the best of British comedy. For the reader’s information, the authors gifted this novel to me. I liked the novel so much that immediately after reading, I bought a copy as a gift for a friend. For readers wondering how the authors would progress with the same characters from the wonderfully wacky “Looking for La La,” they do so keeping Cathy in her element while expanding her world.

For those of us who think we know Cathy, “To Catch a Creeper” adds a new dimension. Touted as a woman put together in the wake of the notoriety from her last case, we know Cathy is far from a woman who has all of the boxes of her life ticked. She may not seem to the reader to be a woman to whom a person should turn for help but she inspires confidence from her friends and she simply cannot say no when they embroil here in their complicated lives.

As with “Looking for LaLa,” this novel is written with consistency and flow not indicative of a writing team. The main thrusts of the story have to do with the pregnancy of Cathy’s friend Rosa and the solving of the case of the Crouch End Creeper. This storytelling is delightfully schizophrenic while maintaining the reader’s attention and never leaving us behind. With lines going out everywhere the exaggerated reality of Cathy’s situation had me laughing beginning to end. In many cases, Cathy is truly her own worst enemy.

While it would be a shame for readers not to enjoy the wonderful “Looking for LaLa” before reading “To Catch a Creeper,” it is certainly not necessary to do so. Cathy’s second misadventures work well as a stand-alone read. Pick it up today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great cozy mystery with humor added May 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
In order if you have not read Looking for LaLa please GRAB it here Cathy is the funny and zany character from LaLa. When she starts working of course there is not love fest there. I mean every office has a psycho, a loser, a slut and a nut job right? I guess only mine then. Follow Cathy in the den of the beast! There are characters from LaLa, like Hugh, Sophie and Rosa. I will say that In the office you will laugh a lot. There are so many humorous quips. I felt I was relating more to Cathy here because at times she was VERY unappreciated. I think any mother who has to work and juggles feels like she is unappreciated. That is how I felt at times myself. I wanted to pinch Declan at times and hug him at others.

Follow Cathy through her zany and somewhat I Love Lucy type scenarios. She tries to find out who is burglarizing homes in her neighborhood. It is a cozy type mystery. People who are fans of Pamela Fagan Hutchins will love this series and these great authors.

I will say Cathy is lovable, enjoyable to read, and the book is light and oh so easy to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from this duo.... March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this for free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Pam and Lorraine (Ellie). All opinions expressed are mine alone.
Since others have given the background of the book in their reviews, I will bypass that and get right to the point. My review.

Having read Looking for LaLa I was familiar with some of the characters in this book...Cathy, Rosa, Declan and more. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the book though. Was it to take up where the other left off or be a totally new book. I was delighted to find that it was a combination. The "familiar gang" was represented, but we had new characters to grab our interest. The characters were well developed, and colorful. I enjoyed all of them, especially Mrs. Baker. I laughed quite a bit while reading as I could "see" the situations that Cathy was in. Enjoyed the twists and turns. Cute ending. In other words...I loved the book.
I would definitely recommend the book to others. It isn't necessary to have read Looking for LaLa, however it would provide a very good insight into the background of the main characters of To Catch a Creeper.
