'Insanely good read for fans of humor and mystery cozies' Rabid Readers Reviews

'Definitely kept you on the edge of your seat and turning page after page till the end. I couldn't stop reading this one!' Night Owl Reviews


Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa. But when Rosa's pregnancy goes amiss and enemies sabotage her new career, she finds herself leading a chaotic double life of lies and deception, hiding a shameful secret from all, especially husband Declan who appears in the throes of a nervous breakdown. Meanwhile she's agreed to unmask the notorious Crouch End Creeper, a burglar terrorizing their neighbourhood. Little does she know that her meddling, assisted by fellow mothers (the Wednesday Once Weeklies) and the Neighbourhood Watch, will lead their dangerous opponent to murder. And that it's not only the tall elegant transvestite who is placing herself at risk...

By ElaineG TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 April 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
I had already read and loved Looking for La La so was absolutely delighted when I was asked to read and review the follow up To Catch a Creeper. Although you will have a better understanding of Cathy and her past if you have read the first book, it doesn't matter if you haven't as this can be read as a standalone. We rejoin Cathy as she finally appears to have her life on track with a new career and her group of friends around her, not to mention husband Dec. However, this is Cathyland and things won't stay calm and quiet for long, pretty soon hubby is acting strange, she is having problems at work and getting roped into solving the mystery of the identity of The Creeper, the latest burglar in town.

On balance, I think I would have preferred it if this story concentrated on her career problems and relationships with her family and husband. Part of the charm of Cathy is her very normalness, she could be your annoying sister, friend or neighbour, and I think when you introduce one mystery after another, it quickly turns a little farcical and you lose that little something which makes her believable.

It is a fairly quick, enjoyable light read that is very witty in places, but I didn't love it the same way that I loved La La, and I think the main problem for me is that more of Cathy is just a little too much. She is like one of those frenetic party guests who is lively, noisy, bubbly, full of tall stories and dramas, a great laugh to be with, but once you have closed the door on that person, you just breathe a huge sigh of relief and thank Whoever that they have gone home. On the whole though, and reading this book as a work on its own, it is not a bad read at all, a very entertaining way to spend a lazy day

Having read Looking for La La many of the characters were back for a second time in this instalment, having loved them the first time around I was delighted to read more of their stories and follow the crazy antics that no doubt would happen in this book, just like the first. I have been waiting so long to finally read more about Cathy and her friends that I grew to love over the course of the first book, I was thrilled to get a copy.
I loved the beginning of this book so much, it made me laugh so much like the first book did, with the perfect beginning I was hooked yet again. With it's humour, drama and exciting adventures that happen throughout this book that has been continued from the first book. After all it follows the characters as they find out who the mystery creeper is and how they are going to catch them, that on its own is enough to create thrilling situations. Much has changed since the first book, Cathy now has a job in London where she works with Rosa, who is pregnant and not much help in the mission in unmasking the creeper, though she is there when Cathy needs her.
It has been a change from her being a housewife which Cathy was in the first book, to working in a business in London, though working with her best friend Rosa is something Cathy enjoys very much. Although, things start getting crazier her husband Declan colleague Hugh dies, and he seems to think that he is to blame and that is when everything seems to escalate making Cathy's life, crazy once again.
Although, things never do go to plan, there are many surprising twists in the book, including Cathy losing her job, Rosa who starts having problems related to her pregnancy that affect Cathy as well and what the Wednesday Once Weekly group have planned to find out the creeper is using anything they can.

Format: Paperback
Cathy has turned her life around from being a stay-at-home mother and loving wife to having her own job within the world of advertising. Luckily, Cathy’s best friend Rosa is there to help her learn the ropes of the business. However, when Rosa has a pregnancy scare she is forced to stay at home until the labour and Cathy is on her own to figure things out. Yet, things don’t go exactly according to Cathy’s plan... Meanwhile she also has other things keeping her occupied, such as the mystery of the Crouch End Creeper, a burglar who has been robbing homes in Cathy’s neighbourhood. Together with her friends and the Neighbourhood Watch team Cathy wants to catch this burglar, but with everything going on in her life, it doesn’t take long before she starts losing grip on all the things she’s trying to juggle at the same time...

‘To Catch a Creeper’ is the sequel to ‘Looking for La La’ and even though I enjoyed the first part of the series, I definitely liked this book better. The reader is invited back into Cathy’s hectic life, but this time things are different because Cathy has a job. I really enjoyed this change in the story, also because it shows a development in Cathy’s character; I felt myself warm to her much more than I did while reading ‘Looking for La La.’ I loved revisiting the already familiar cast of secondary characters and the fun new characters that were added, such as Cathy’s neighbour Mrs. Baker and the Neighbourhood Watch team. There are definitely quite a few characters, but most of them do add something special to the story which consists of two main plotlines.
