NOW A MAJOR TV DRAMA on Channel 5, starring Jason Watkins, Aneurin Barnard, Poppy Gilbert and Cathy Belton.
She says he’s perfect. I know he’s lying . . .
He caught me watching, and our eyes met. That was when it hit me.
There was something not quite right about my daughter’s new boyfriend . . .
The doting father
Ed finally meets his daughter’s boyfriend for the first time. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be a real catch. Then Abbie announces their plan to get married.
The perfect fiancé
There’s just one problem. Ed thinks Ryan is lying to them.
Who would you believe?
All of Ed’s instincts tell him his daughter is in terrible danger – but no-one else can see it. With the wedding date approaching fast, Ed sets out to uncover Ryan’s secrets, before it’s too late . . .

Wow! I finished The Catch this morning and oh my goodness…. Just wow!
I bumped this book to the top of my list (before watching the TV series based on it) and I have loved it!
I’m sure all dads are wary of their daughter’s boyfriends, however old those daughters are, especially when they decide to marry someone they haven’t known for long. I could fully understand Ed’s paternal protectiveness, and I felt his frustration when his wife and daughter thought he was being unreasonable because he wasn’t instantly over the moon about the wedding. I could also understand Abbie though, who obviously thinks Ryan is perfect and feels like her dad is trying to ruin things for her and Claire who thinks her husband is overreacting and should just be happy for his only daughter. All perfectly normal, reasonable feelings.
Ryan seems too good to be true, but there are good men out there, so why not hold on to one when the chance arises. Life is short. You can’t blame Abbie for falling for him. He really does seem like the perfect catch.
For Ed though there is something off about this man and he genuinely fears for Abbie’s safety. I was inclined to believe him whilst also hoping he was completely wrong. I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen.
This book kept me glued to my kindle late into the night and I had to finish it this morning before I could do anything else. I could not believe what I was reading. It made my blood run cold and my heart was thumping towards the end. Brilliant writing!
An easy five stars for me.
Looking forward to watching the TV series now to see how it compares.
