Publisher's Summary

Two agents on the trail of a serial killer. A mother and daughter on the trip of a lifetime. Fates converge in paradise in a chilling short story by an Amazon Charts bestselling author.

Cold case expert Evangeline Reed and forensics legend Harry Steinbeck are on their way from Minneapolis to Costa Rica. They’ve been ordered to keep close watch on a protective mother and her daughter, both of whom have troubling connections to a Minnesota serial killer. Are they on holiday? In hiding? Or on the run? It’s time for Van and Harry to close in on the truth. And there’s more at risk than anyone can imagine.

Catch Her in a Lie by Jess Lourey is part of Getaway, a collection of six stories about dream escapes that take unimaginable, even sinister, turns. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single sitting.

I liked this one!

This book was pretty good. The characters were likable and the story kept me drawn in. I did find myself wanting more tho and I would love to see a series with the detectives from this book. Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Great Story

This was a very interesting read with quite a surprising ending! It would make a great book using the FBI characters. Glad I read it! The narrator does a great job also

Yes!

This was a short story and an excellent one! The sense of being on edge and knowing something was going to happen was awesome. That anticipation was met by a twist I never saw. Many times I can guess several possibilities but I was completely blindside.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend this book. 👍

Rating as a movie: R

My rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My thoughts: I wasn't a fan of the topic but this was well written. I would like to read more from Jess Lourey but I fear she may be too dark for me. Reminded me of Karin Slaughter and Lisa Unger without the graphic details.

Recommend to others?: Maybe. It was a good story I was left wanting a novel on the agents.

An Excellent Short Story

4.5 out of 5 stars

There is something about a short story that I just love. Especially when that short story is part of a bigger series. And even more when that series is part of Kindle Unlimited and/or Audible plus. When I saw that Jess Lourey had written a book in this series, I knew I would have to take the dive. Even just looking at the cover drew me in. But once I started it, being a short story – there was no time to hide. Lourey had to start the book fast and definitely did.

I’ve read three books from Lourey, and even in this short story, I couldn’t predict where it would go. She has this way of writing where it feels like anyone could have done it. And every time there is a “reveal,” it just feels like it’s a trick or something else. Catch Her In A Lie was no different. Sure, there were fewer people to suspect, but even when things were being revealed, I was like, “but, is it this person, really?”

Now, I did open this by saying that I love short stories since there’s no place to hide the bad form or a bad premise. But, I will add that I would have loved to read a full-length Catch Her In A Lie, but it would have been a very difficult book to get through (similar to the other Lourey stories). She can write about despicable human beings and despicable things happening to innocent people so it’s almost visceral when reading it.

Overall, a great short story that is easily finished in one sitting. Carly Robbins performed this perfectly and was a great cast for both women in the story.
