About the Book

Book: Catch Me If You Can

Author: Carole Brown

Genre: Romantic Suspense with a touch of quirkiness

Release date: August 5, 2021

The big cat sat on the oversized rock, ears pointed toward the sky, every muscle taut, every sense at the ready.

“S-s-shut up and f-f-forget it. You’ve s-seen nothing and know nothing. I won’t warn you again. G-g-got it?”

The cat’s head swiveled, his ears twitching as if catching the hint of threat in the whisper. A soft hiss slid from his open mouth and reinforced the overtone of evil pressing in upon the scene. Within hours, lies and dark secrets are slithering all over the campground.

Coaxed into finding the animal killer at Jamieson’s Outfitters, Tara Layne, with her sidekick, Boet, is welcomed by a threatening whisper and the unfriendly eyes of a rugged and devastatingly handsome manager. Wesley Clarke, both interesting and frustrating, holds an attraction for Tara that is primitive and exasperating.

Intermingled with her search, Tara deals with her own heartbreaking buried secrets. When a strange old Native American probes into the recesses of her heart, he encourages her to face her bitter feelings.

As Tara closes in on her search, she finds herself—and Boet—the target of someone who’s determined to outrun and outsmart her. Someone determined not to get caught.

His theme:

Run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me.

The question:

Can Tara run fast enough to catch this real live Gingerbread boy

before he decides to get rid of her and Boet?


Catch Me if You Can Excerpt FourSanity returned. Why was she wasting time remembering that old scene?Where was Boet? Her frustrated gaze caught sight of him following meekly along behindthem, his leash dragging on the ground, as if her ignominous fatedidn’t bother him. Or maybe hewas ashamed of her, pretending he didn’t know her.“Boet, attack him.”When that didn’t seem to faze either man or beast, Tara screeched.No ladylike, genteel scream. Loud and long and piercing.Tory had always compared hershrieks with a night owl’s. Tomas, not to be outdone andwanting to best his older brother, declared her screaming voice more like an angry panther.Brothers.She got an upside down look at two of Jamieson’s grinning customers who must haveheard her wildcry. What were they doing up at this time of the night? Didn’t anyone around herego to bed at a decent hour? Tara hoped they enjoyed the unusual invasion of their quiet evening.Tara gritted her teeth in frustration and hissed at Wesley’s back.“What areyou doing?”His snort spoke volumes.“Taking you home the easiest way. You’re confused. You mightget lost.”

    I think this blogger needs to proofread the excerpt and go back and insert spaces. The words are running together.

    I have read the book and the words do not run together like this.
