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.Read more ›
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
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.

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.
