3 coincidence or not starsHow far would you go to get revenge This tale digs into just that thought as one woman chases another who coincidentally shares the same name How common is that After a chance meeting at a bar, Jessica discovers that her bank account has been drained and there s not much the police can do to help her So the chase is on to catch the other Jessica and get her money back This was my first read by Catherine McKenzie although I have several of her earlier books on my to be read shelf There were quite a few twists, but I really wasn t invested in the characters and the romance that crops up The ending was a surprise to me and even though I didn t love this one, I will still read future books by this author.This was another fun buddy read with Jayme Always good to share thoughts with another reader Thanks to NetGalley, Catherine McKenzie, and Lake Union Publishing for an early copy to read This one releases June 9, 2020. Jessica Williams is a journalist who makes a career bombing mistake when she plagiarises an article which results in losing her job though she manages to negotiate a payoff Whilst waiting for a flight to Mexico for a holiday she meets another Jessica Williams What a coincidence Except it s not Jessica Two is a hustler and she manages to elicit sufficient information from Jessica One to steal all her settlement money Thus starts the twistiest of twisty tales that leaves you dizzy as your head spins and your brain tries to keep up with the pace but you are most certainly entertained as you follow Jessica One as she enacts revenge on Jessica Two Jessica One has a fascinating story as interspersed with her exploits with Jessica Two we learn about her life up to the age of eighteen in a cult known as Land of Todd This works really well in the storytelling as it flows effortlessly and the two stories do eventually connect together extremely cleverly The portrayal of cult life is very sobering and deeply scary as it shows the depth of the control and Jessica also tells the sad story of her cousin Kiki both inside the cult and afterwards The novel is well written, the style is lively and engaging I love the chapter headings The characters though not all likeable are well portrayed There are some good descriptions especially the part of the story which takes Jessica to Jackson, Wyoming which sounds breathtaking though remind me NOT to fly into Jackson Here there are some very dramatic scenes with that glorious backdrop which I think adds an extra dimension The end is terrific and I genuinely didn t see that one coming Kudos, Catherine McKenzie Overall, a really good novel of deception and revenge with grifters, hustlers, escapees from a cult and several interesting characters It s full of twists and turns and most importantly is very entertaining Many thanks to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing. Twelve Years Ago Jessica Williams Escaped A Cult She Reintegrated Into Society, Endured An Uncomfortable Notoriety, And Tried To Put It All Behind Her Then, At An Airport Bar, Jessica Meets A Woman With An Identical Name And Birth Date It Appears To Be Just An Odd Coincidence Until A Week Later, When Jessica Finds Her Bank Account Drained And Her Personal Information StolenFollowing A Trail Of The Grifter S Victims, Each With The Same Name, Jessica Gathers Players, One By One, For Her Own Game According To Her Plan, They Ll Set A Trap And Wait For The Impostor To Strike Again But Plans Can Go Awry, And Trust Can Fray, And As Jessica Tries To Escape The Shadows Of Her Childhood, The Risks Are Greater Than She Imagined Now, Confronting The Casualties Of Her Past, Jessica Can T Help But Wonder Who Will Pay The Price Two women named Jessica Williams walk into a bar Sitting beside each other is not an accident One was once a child, rescued from a CULT She is not willing to be anyone s VICTIM againespecially not a grifter s I am a huge fan of this author having read almost every one of her ten books, but I was not a fan of this book Perhaps this time it s a case of It s me, not you I don t enjoy stories about CULTS, or GRIFTERS, so, this book probably did not stand a chance with me If you enjoy these subjects, it just may work for you, as other reviewers have given this 5 stars, and I can admit the ending was CLEVER and SURPRISING Unfortunately though, I just didn t enjoy getting there, as I didn t connect with our protagonist, or care about the outcome at all Glad we read it together DeAnn, but wish it had been as fabulous as The Good Liar was Thank you to NetGalley, Lake Union Publishing, and the talented Catherine McKenzie for the digital ARC, I received in exchange for a candid review This title will be released on June 9, 2020. 2.5 starsAlas another book for the wish I had liked it file While I so enjoyed this author s The Good Liar, this one just didn t give me the thrills I was hoping to find.It has lots going on and perhaps it was that issue that kept me from enjoying this story as much as I hoped I would The story line, that of a woman named Jessica Williams, who has had her fair share of troubles in the past, being an unwilling member of a cult being caught plagiarizing and losing her job, and then being taken over by a con artist were just a few things that had poor Jessica going round the bend.But, for me, the story was convoluted with a plethora of Jessica Williams running amuck and a story that seemed at times to meander along It was hard for me to build up any kind of link with the characters They all seemed shoddy and lacked a sense of right and wrong After awhile the plot became somewhat farfetched as a trap is laid for one of the Jessicas, the one who had plotted and schemed to cheat the rest of the Jessicas.However, please do look at other reviews and many have truly enjoyed this story Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this story. Catherine McKenzie is at the top of her game when a former cult member finds herself mixed up in a dangerous, high stakes case of identity theft Addictive and fast paced, YOU CAN T CATCH ME proves that sometimes revenge is sweet McKenzie best book yet 3.5 Twelve years ago Jessica Williams escaped from a cult she was involved in All she wanted to do was leave that portion of her life behind her, but that was easier said than done The day Jessica crosses paths with a woman at an airport bar of the exact name and birth date as hers is the day her life will alter forever You Can t Catch Me by Catherine McKenzie was a book with many twists and turns that kept the reader turning the pages I enjoyed this book, but I didn t love it because I felt a few times the story was a little slow and it dragged a bit for me In saying that I feel a bit of it was me and not entirely the book, so please don t allow my opinion to put you off from reading this book I look forward to reading by this author Recommended.With thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my digital copy to read and review. Special thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest reviewExpected pub date June 9, 2020 I am so excited to be chosen as one of McKenzie s early readers, once again I have read most of McKenzie s later works, and was impressed by her creativity and skill, so taking the plunge into You Can t Catch Me had me overcome with all the feelsJessica Williams has spent the last twelve years trying to rebuild her life, after escaping from a cult Now, as she starts a new job and a new relationship with the private investigator who helped free her, she is finally making some gains When she meets another woman named Jessica Williams in an airport bar, things soon go from good to very, very bad Jessica Two has used her identity and stolen the majority of the settlement money Jessica won in a lawsuit against her old cult leader In order to regain her money, Jessica teams up with others who have also been a target of Jessica Two, and they band together with a plan to take Jessica Two downYou Can t Catch Me has a unique Charlie s Angel s feel, with bad ass lead female characters banding together to take down anotherjust plain badfemale who has managed to use her smarts and charm to swindle them out of money All of the good Jessica s in this novel are easy to root for, and they aren t portrayed as na ve somehow, as the swindler Jessica has very strong game, making it believable that she could abscond with someone s money I thoroughly enjoyed the cult segment of this novel and wanted of it At first, it didn t seem to tie into the plotoutside of being the protagonists Jessica s back story , but in true McKenzie fashion, it plays a very important part toward the end of the novel The twist was impressive, although a lot of convenient coincidences were at play in order to make it work Cleverly told, I am a fan of McKenzie s new novel After ten novels, McKenzie shows no signs of slowing down, and I will gladly devour any story she wishes to put to paper. Readers YOU CAN T CATCH ME will be my 10th novel in 10 years, which is so crazy to think about I need to put that aside Anywho I m so excited for you to meet Jessica Williams, and Jessica Williams, and Jessica, you guessed it, Williams That s right, there s a lot of Jessicas in this book Several years ago, a friend of mine kept getting stopped at the border She has a common name, and there was an APB out for someone with a similar name and the same birthday Over time, we realized that they were looking for a man, but it got me thinking if you did have the same name and birthday as someone, wouldn t it be the perfect way to steal all their money I m sure that s what you were thinking too So that was the genesis of YOU CAN T CATCH ME a book about a woman who meets another woman with the same name and has all her money stolen It was an amazing challenge to write this book and I hope you enjoy it Coming June 9, 2020 One of the things I really like about Catherine McKenzie s novels is that each one is unique In this one, Jessica has escaped a cult and tried to put her life back together again, earning a college degree in journalism She writes about the cult, but parts are plagiarized When she gets caught, she gets fired, but not before receiving a big payoff thanks to the carefully documented sexual harassment she faced by one of her colleagues However, when she meets another Jessica Williams with the same birthday as hers in an airport, she befriends this woman and they exchange contact information by touching phones together this is beyond my understanding of how to use cell phones in what is obviously some magical newfangled technology Jessica Two as the first Jessica comes to think of her, steals all of her money because Two was able to get Jessica One s banking information off her phone The police can t help at all because the money was transferred to offshore accounts they can t follow.So the first Jessica begins a crusade to track down Jessica Two and all of her money, a journey with a lot of twists and turns.Some things felt like they happened too fast and needed to be fleshed out It s a very quick read for that same reason Thanks for NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book, which RELEASES JUNE 9, 2020 by Lake Union Publishing.
