Publisher's Summary

A botched drug raid took her father's life when she was seven. On her 13th birthday she witnessed her mother's murder. Alone in the world, Jennifer Blade sets out to even the score. At 33, enmeshed in a game that knows no rules, she is about to fulfill her quest when everything unravels. Fleeing for her life, she heads to the mountains of upstate New York, where she unexpectedly finds new reason to live. Steve Sanders, a 38-year-old psychologist with a predictable life, is on a fishing trip in the mountains.
Little does he know that all vacations are not created equal. Within 24 hours, they catch a few trout, have a passionate affair, shoot and kill a man, are involved in two gun battles, receive wounds, and end up in Miami, Florida. All this, and as Steve says, they still have six days of vacation left. Their relationship touches long-buried feelings in Jennifer, and shatters the mundane existence suffocating Steve.
Catch and Release, a romance/suspense novel, is the story of two lives from vastly different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and a common love of the great outdoors. The crossing of Jennifer's and Steve's paths releases an explosion of love, passion, adventure, and ultimately a reason for a shared journey.

Another late night

Where does Catch and Release rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is in my top 10.

What other book might you compare Catch and Release to and why?

A cross between Lee Cross and James Paterson with a romantic angle. About the time you think you know what will happen the story takes a sharp turn in another direction.

Which scene was your favorite?

The main character, Steve, is a psychologist with a great sense of humor. His new friend Jennifer aka “J” is a strong willed woman with a crazy life. In one scene she is caught up in a shoot out in which Steve has to drive to her rescue. His trip is through the wood where he destroys his Hertz rental car. That scene and the new chapter were great.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not all vacations are created equal.

Any additional comments?

A friend told me about the book and when I found it on audio I used my credits to try it out. Unfortunately I started late in the evening and couldn’t put it down until very late. It was worth the loss of sleep. I am not a huge “romance” fan, but the interaction between Steve and Jennifer was beautiful, especially with Steve’s wit and humor. Highly recommend for mystery and thriller fans.
