    1 thought on “Catch

    1. While Catch is a novella it doesn't give a feeling of incompleteness. From beginning to end I was hooked. A fresh contemporary read that would be perfect for summer."If you look for excitement, you'll probably find trouble."But maybe a little trouble would be worth it. Miranda is on her last family vacation before she heads off to college. Prompted by her mother, Miranda along with her fifteen-year-old sister Julie, set out to take photos in front of Vegas hotel signs just like their grandmother [...]

    2. This was a cute and light little story. I enjoyed the whole purse thief who wants to play a cat and mouse game. Ollie is not what I thought, he was sweet and fun and really needed a friend. When he explains why he stole Miranda's purse it was not what I had expected but it was over the top drama either. This was sweet little book that was not full of drama and angst. Thank goodness.

    3. By the end of only 20,000 words (this is a "mini book," FYI), I had fallen in love with a purse thief named Ollie. Yep, it takes brilliant storytelling to do that. Once again a fantastic read by Michelle Argyle. LOVED it.

    4. Free ebook on . It’s a quick (one hour), fluffy, fun story. I needed that today.He grabbed her purse. She ran after him desperate to get back the only photos she had of her grandmother. A game ensues between these two.I was surprised by how much I ended up liking Ollie. Yes, I know the premise is totally unbelievable, but that doesn’t stop it from being fun. I admit, I did have to shut my brain so as too not think too hard about certain elements of the story and my problems with them. Just s [...]

    5. Cute, light, quick story. A unique plot that felt like a good book palate cleanser because it was refreshing, refreshing, and more adorably innocent from a lot of material I’ve been reading.

    6. The following review is based on a copy provided to me by the tour organizer in exchange for my honest opinion. You can also view it on my blog here and enter a giveaway ;)REVIEWI loved Michelle Davidson Argyle’s The Breakaway and Pieces (click for my reviews), so when the opportunity to be part of the tour for this novella arose, I had to be on it! Catch didn’t deliver the kind of emotional punch that the former two books did for me, but that’s okay because this is a different type of sto [...]

    7. Find this review and more on my blog:It's no secret I love a good novella. There's something refreshing about a short read with charming characters and an engaging and interesting story. Catch has both. I'm not even going to lie, the cover for this book drew me in every bit as much as the blurb did. The story sounded unique and, having just spent some time in Las Vegas earlier this year, I find that I'm enjoying books set there. The book had some great historical Las Vegas references in it. It a [...]

    8. Catch is a really fun, sweet novella that may not have the most believable plot in the world, but it’s so engaging and earnestly written that the far-fetched storyline doesn’t really matter. The story is set during 18-year-old Miranda’s last family vacation before she moves across the country to attend college; her impending separation from her family is forcing her to confront her conflicting desires to take risks and explore new things, while also wanting to stick to what’s safe and fa [...]

    9. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for letting me a part for another great tour!What started as a simple, short read, turned into a magnificent book, with a wonderful story. Michelle D. Argyle knows her writing skills, knows who to make a character loveable. From my point of view, it’s a hard thing to accomplish, especially in such a short story. But, she managed to do it and in an excellent way. What looked like a simple thief story, turned into [...]

    10. I received the book for a honest review and as a part of the tour! Thanks!:)Original post on: nervidetoamna/This is really a short book, like a novella, but I really enjoyed it. It’s a light read, something nice you can read after a book that made you „O.O omg!!” or something that was a serious read. Is just nice, fluffy, kind of a summer read. I won’t talk too much about it cause why you would read it after? You need to read it and find out alone what’s gonna happen, if Miranda will c [...]

    11. Miranda and her sister Julia are on vacation in Las Vegas. They are taking pictures to look like the exact ones their grandmother took. Then a man grabs Miranda's purse that has the pictures in it and takes off. Miranda chases him because the pictures are irreplaceable. Then they begin to contact each other through cell phones.I love unconventional couples and odd ways of meeting but this one is a little out there. Once you get past the fact that she is doing something really really dumb, like c [...]

    12. Review Originally Posted at: Book FreakWhat Miranda had thought to be a monotonous and boring vacation turned out to be a once in a lifetime adventureCatch was a short, and fun read. An adventure book compressed in a novella that will keep you on your toes as Miranda search for the next clue to complete the contents of the purse that was snatched on the Las Vegas Strip.All she wanted to have were the old photographs at the bottom of the purse – she doesn’t mind her cards, phone, or even the [...]

    13. This was a short and sweet romance story. I loved getting to know Miranda's character through the fun game of hide-and-seek she ends up playing with the thief who swiped her purse while her family is on vacation in Las Vegas. The book starts by introducing Miranda and her sister Julie, who are on a quest to visit places around Vegas that her grandmother did once upon a time. Miranda's purse is stolen by Ollie, a suit-and-sneaker wearing thief who Miranda valiantly tries to run down. Ollie is int [...]

    14. I won this book from a contest on .Eighteen year old Miranda and her fifteen year old sister, Julie are on their way to Vegas with their parents. After summer vacation, Miranda is off to college away from her family and she is already missing her younger sister. Miranda has had her share of being broken hearted by old boyfriends and wonders if she'll ever find that special one as her sister 'believes' she already has. But while Miranda and Julie are out on the strip taking pictures, Miranda feel [...]

    15. This sweet, fun read was a breath of fresh air for a number of reasons. The premise seemed unique--can't say I've ever seen another book or film quite like it. It's rare to find a clean read with characters in this age range, and to find college-aged kids dealing with relatable, garden-variety quandaries like "who do I want to be?" instead of dark, twisted pasts. It was just lovely to spend a few hours with good-hearted characters rather than a boatload of angst.I especially loved the emphasis o [...]

    16. This is a very short and quick read. I was able to finish it in just a couple of hours. But in those two short hours I was captivated by such a unique and interesting storyline. I can honestly say I have never read another story like it. The chase scene had my heart pounding and it felt as if I was watching an action movie scene play out before me. I was almost as anxious as Miranda every time she would wait for a response from her purse thief. I actually really enjoyed every scene she had with [...]

    17. A fun, quick read. Perfect length for a busy day.Imagine being on vacation in Las Vegas, touring the city, and having your purse snatched. What would you do?For Miranda, the answer was simple. She tried to chase down the snatcher. But that's just the beginning.As I read CATCH, I kept telling Miranda her ideas were a bad thing, while at the same time urging her to make the choice I wouldn't just to see what would happen.Ms. Argyle kept me turning pages, hoping things would turn out the way I want [...]

    18. This was a cute, short book that I easily finished in about an hour. I thought the premise sounded a little ridiculous with a girl falling in love with a boy who steals her purse in Las Vegas. But there was a lot more to the story than just that. It wasn't so weird once I understood more. This was just a fun, quick, light-hearted book.

    19. Decent read. I think it was perfect for its length. I'm not sure I would have wanted to read a full length version of this story. I liked the normalness of Miranda, she was a typical teenager. Her parents surprised me though, all they said about sex was be careful, that's a new one for me. Overall, this was a nice short read.

    20. --full review on my blog the enigma of herself on oct 28 for the Catch Book Tour--This was an easy, light read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You know how when it's rainy or when you're travelling and all you want to do is be cooped up with a good, light book? This book is perfect, absolutely perfect for that. <3

    21. This was such a fun read! The characters were great and it was a really sweet romance. I actually kind of wish this was a full length novel--I wouldn't mind hanging out with these characters some more :)

    22. A sweet, wholesome, and feel-good tale that will capture the heart of any teen, or sweep an adult back in time to memories of their first love. An absolutely delightful read; you'll hardly have time to Catch your breath.

    23. Updated 5/11/15:Upgraded to a 5 star because I keep thinking about it and keep gushing at its cuteness.Original Review:OMG!!! Short and sweet and oh so cute!!! Gushing over this one. It's adorable!!!!!! AHHHHHJHHHJHHHHHH

    24. HmmmI'm not sure how to rate this.While I did find it kind of cute, I also found it really odd. I didn't identify with Miranda making the choices she did. Nor did I agree with them. What a risk

    25. A short, breezy romance between an 18-year-old and the man who steals her purse. What's lost is more important than her purse: it's the only remaining photos of her grandma, and this adds weight to the story. This was a nice, refreshing pick-me-up read.
