Real Life Clue, Death and All

What if you washed ashore, on a random island, in a storm? What if the people on that island, where basically insane, or at least, it would seem? Stuck with a group of people playing a dangerous came of "Catch Me" for a convention, it turns dangerously realistic when one of the people end up dead. Forced to not only prove she isn't the killer - as the loner of the gro

An entertaining intense mystery adventure!

Catch Me If You Can is a fast-paced suspenseful thriller that takes a twisted mystery and turns it into a deadly game. As bodies and victims appear it becomes perplexing as to who the culprit might be. This is an intriguing and well-written story. Miss Mae is an author that really knows how to build up the suspense and keep your attention to the very end. There are many twists and turns in the story to keep you guessing. I wasn’t able to figure it out a

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Miss Mae. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Catch Me If You Can is an old-fashioned whodunit. There is supposed to be a convention in Jenna’s hotel but only 10 people show up before a hurricane hits the island off the coast of South Carolina. Lois washes up on shore and is taken into the hotel but quickly realizes that she’s not safe after

This was fun to listen to with all the different narrators. It was like a movie with the picture turned off. That being said the story was just OK for me - not bad! But OK. I wasn't really in love with any of the characters and couldn't really get much of a personal feel for their personalities. It was slow in spots and wasn't very thrilling for me. I think this type of mystery just isn't my thing.

It did receive good reviews from Amazon so far so please don't let my 3.5 stars sway you f

This is one of the best mysteries of I’ve heard this year. With a full cast of great narrators, stellar plotting, and a suspenseful mystery, its easy to get five stars!  I’m not even sure how to describe the full experience of this book. Catch Me If you Can is an award winning book for a reason.

Trigger warning: racism

Part Murder, She Wrote episode, part Clue, this full cast production audiobook of Catch Me If You Can begins as any good, classic mystery might: in a dark and stormy night. Lois, a young woman out "snorkeling", is caught in a category four hurricane and washed ashore, only to be rescued by a guest of the manor house where some sort of gathering is occurring. It isn't long before it is clear that Lois isn't the only one to be wary of; everyone is suspicious

When Lois Steinberg washes up on the shores of the South Carolina coast, she has no idea what is in store for her at Wycliff House Resort.
Jenna, the owner of the resort, is hosting a "Catch Me" convention and is expecting the game creator to show up any minute. Instead of the game creator showing up, a category four hurricane crashes the coast.
What do you get when you combine a hurricane, 10 strangers and a murder? You get this wonderful book!

I could NOT put the book down and was lost in the sto

I do love a good dark, stormy, isolated murder mystery. The setting drew me right in. All these folks, most of them strangers to one another, are trapped at a small convention on a South Carolina island during a hurricane. Lois, our main female character, washes up on shore and is rescued by these convention goers. The plot thickens when a character ends up dead.

Then the characters do something smart: they all agree to move about in triples. This makes it rather hard for the murderer(s) to knock

Catch Me If You Can has a very entertaining storyline, transferred into audiobook format with special sound effects and more! Miss Mae has a story with an incredible “whodunit” vibe. There are several elements engulfed in this tale like murder, mayhem, paranoia, fear, and romance. Readers who enjoy listening to audiobooks will have a change from the normal one reader wonder in this full-on production.

I listened to the audiobook of this and it was amazing and intense! It sucked me in from the very beginning. The voice actors were amazing and on point. I especially loved the great sound effects. There were many times I actually had to make sure that it wasn't really storming outside!

Now for the story itself, I really adored it. The characters were amazing. I instantly fell in love with them all. I loved that even the dog was given a personality of his very own! I just wish it could have gone

Suspenseful till the end.
The audible version is an interesting listen. And it's good. Almost like your watching a tv show with an interesting outcome. Don't normally hear an audio quite like this but it's really good and a unique experience when you listen to it. The suspense draws you in and you wonder about everybody, including the heroine and hero. So when you get a chance check it out and enjoy. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Miss Mae wrote a delightful mystery! I loved the performance of the narrators in this book and the sound effects. One could hear exactly what was happening and who was speaking. The suspense in this story is great. I loved the twists and turns this story took. Growing up I had listened to many performances of Masterpiece Theatre on the radio, and this book reminded me of those happy memories with a great story. I didn't see the ending coming, which is kudos to Miss Mae.

Miss Mae weaves quite the complex mystery. This story had so many twists and turns and my idea of "who done it" changed it several times. A fast paced while written mystery.

I originally read a kindle version of this book a year ago. Since then, the audio book has been released and, when I heard the sample, I decided to download it. This is a new review to incorporate the audiobook format.

This is an interesting dramatization of the story. This is a fully immersive experience, with sound effects and music used in such a way that felt like throw back to the old radio dramatizations/plays. My only complaint about this version of story is that the wind sound effect, alt

Catch Me If You Can
: Miss Mae


This is my first listen of this author. It is an amazing mystery set with a new game, 10 strangers, and a hurricane. The action is non stop as the characters develop and everyone hopes to win the game. The personalities of each character are different , from amusing, scary, brilliant, all mysterious!!!


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. The extra sound effects where first class. Stephen Mendel , Dave Mallow , J.W. Terry , Toni Attell , Rob

Note: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

This reminded me of a Graphic Audio production. I could have actually done without the sound effects, but the voice acting and narration were pretty good. The overall story was alright. Nothing too deep or terribly hard to figure out. I'd already guessed a couple of the main points well before the story was done, just didn't know the particular motivations or details behind them. All in all, a

Love the pacing of the story...exactly how a 'want to keep reading' mystery should be. A real page turner, Catch Me If You Can, has intriguing characters and more and more surprises in each chapter. Miss Mae has a deft touch when it comes to juggling plot development and people.
Great cover.
