The Catch

By Amy Lea
The Catch by Amy Lea digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A grumpy lobster fisherman tosses a fashion influencer’s impeccably curated life overboard in the next romantic comedy from international bestselling author Amy Lea.

In a last-ditch effort to rescue her brand from the brink of irrelevance, Boston fashion influencer Melanie Karlsen finds herself in a rural fishing village on the east coast of Canada. The only thing scarier than nature itself? The burly and bearded bed-and-breakfast owner and fisherman, Evan Whaler—who single-handedly disproves the theory that Canadians are “nice.”

After a boating accident lands Evan unconscious in the hospital, Mel is mistaken for his fiancée by his welcoming yet quirky family, who are embroiled in a long-standing feud over the B&B. In a bold attempt to mend family fences, Mel agrees to fake their engagement for one week in exchange for Evan’s help with her social media content.

Amid long hikes and campfire chats, reeling in their budding feelings for each other proves more difficult by the day. But is Mel willing to sacrifice her picture-perfect life in the city for a chance at a true, unfiltered love in the wild?

“i love a man in flannel”
“I love Melanie and Evan but I’m sad the Influencer series has come to an end. I have enjoyed the positivity each book has brought to how it feels as a woman living in today’s world of always having to be picture perfect. I related to Crystal’s story in Set On You because of the struggles with weight and acceptance, but in The Catch, Melanie and the fear of having such a small family and the thought of no one being there if something should happen to her really hit home. In the end she has her happily ever after and more people to call family than she ever thought possible.”
“The Catch was such a good book, and I’m sad that The Influencer Series is over! I debated the entire book whether this story was five stars or four, and I ended up rating it four stars. Melanie’s inability to be vulnerable sort of read borderline miscommunication to me, and I felt frustrated midway through. She eventually figured it out, but I’d already decided it was a four-star read (sorry, Mel!). I’m also usually not a fan of the grumpy sunshine trope, but Amy Lea did a wonderful job developing Evan. I wish we could have more!”
