    Romance, Mystery and Suspense I always worry that a third book

    Romance, Mystery and Suspense


    I always worry that a third book in a series will not keep up the momentum or the interest in the characters. So not the case with BAD GUYS GET CAUGHT! This was a great, fun, quick read filled with romance, mystery and suspense, there is something for everyone! This can also be a stand-alone book. You did not have to read books #1 and #2 to understand what is going on. There is enough of a recap and explanation to feel like you haven’t missed a thing!

    Janet Maple and Dennis Walker are white collar crime investigators. They are a couple and they are very competitive with each other. Their assignment is to investigate Julius Libby, a candidate for the New York senate seat. They are hired to do a thorough background check before his candidacy is officially announced and the campaign begins. A candidate who comes across as too good to be true, usually is and what they find will have you holding your breath and hoping that the BAD GUYS GET CAUGHT!

    I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED ¿Bad Guys Get Caught¿ Book 3, by

    I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED “Bad Guys Get Caught” Book 3, by Marie Astor! Janet Maple and Dennis Walker are absolute super sleuths at catching the bad guys! When they are working in harmony with each other, they cannot be beat. However, sometimes the fact that they are a “Couple” and they both have very competitive personalities can really screw things up!! If you read the first two books in this series, you will know the struggles, trials and tribulations Janet and Dennis went through to finally become a couple. They had entirely different personalities, and their road to their HEA was not a smooth one! This book, as were the first two in Marie’s series, are full of romance, intrigue, and humor. These books have a little of everything you could possibly want in a contemporary romance, mystery, humorous series. I hope there will be a book four in this series because I think this couple still has a lot more enjoyment to give us!! Great Job Marie! You have another hit on your hands my friend!!!

    EXCELLENT PAGE TURNER - ROMANCE, SUSPENSE, WOW! It thrilled me t

    EXCELLENT PAGE TURNER - ROMANCE, SUSPENSE, WOW! It thrilled me to have Janet Maple and Dennis Walker back in my life again with Bad Guys Get Caught (Book 3 of the Janet Maple series)! Marie Astor sure knows how to write an action packed, romance, mystery, suspense, page-turner book! Marie should be VERY proud of this book, she did a fantastic job keeping me captivated with an awesome storyline.This is my absolute favorite of the series. Totally loved the interaction of Janet and Dennis, but also the other characters - totally believable. I loved seeing characters from Book 1 and 2 as well in this one. I enjoy seeing characters again in a book series, whether they are good or bad :) I honestly didn't know what was going to come next in reading this - certainly not like some books where you know what's going to happen - not at all. Kept me on the edge of my seat that's for sure, many twists and the ending was very well done. What a great story! Total WOW!!!My gosh do I love seeing Janet and Dennis in action and together! They're like family to me so reading about them in this book, what they go through, just thrills me and I so look forward to more of them in the future.I highly recommend reading this entire series. If you haven't read Book 1 or 2 yet, you can still read this as a stand alone and not be lost. Marie did a great job at that for readers.Marie, Book 3 is FANTASTIC - keep them coming because I just love Janet and Dennis and I want more of them!!! Excellent, excellent, excellent. Marie Astor's books are ones you DO NOT want to miss out on.Again, I highly recommend this book (as well as Book 1 & 2). You will not be disappointed because Marie ROCKS it with this series!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE :) :)

    WOW..This is the best yet of the series..From Book One to this one you watch Janet Maple Grow into an independent and strong lady..but she also learns to trust Dennis more..and falls more deeply in love. She uses her intelligence to get an break for the case they are assigned to..this case starts out simple but all of a sudden it ties into cases that are still open in the past. Some boyfriend/girlfriend jealous and competition also occurs in the book. You feel like your right there with Janet and want to warn her and tell her to be careful.. Very wonderfully written with humor, mystery and just enough romance to make you go awwwwww! Without any one of the elements over taking the story. Marie..I sincerely hope this is not the last of Janet, Dennis and Baxter. We need them to tie the knot and have a mystery to solve while on their honeymoon!! More Janet Maple Please!!!

    Janet and Dennis are back and trying to catch the bad guys once

    Janet and Dennis are back and trying to catch the bad guys once again in Bad Guys Get Caught, book #3 in the Janet Maple Series.  

    I am just going to go ahead and say it; this is my favorite book of the series.  Janet and Dennis have grown so much as characters and the author’s writing has improved with each book. All of the books have been great but this one really stands out.

    Book #3 delivers a little bit of everything. It has mystery, suspense, romance, and a cast of wonderfully written characters. One of my favorite things about this book is that the author challenges Janet and Dennis to grow up and learn that relationships require work and sacrifice. She directs them to see the bigger picture during their times of struggle and I think that’s a lesson that can’t be shared enough.

    I know the synopsis states that this book can be read as a stand-alone and I completely agree but I really hope that you take the time to read Book 1, To Catch a Bad Guy (it’s free) and Book 2, Catching the Bad Guy. Don’t miss out on the chance to get to know these characters as friends!

    BOOK SYNOPSIS








    Bad Guys Get Caught (Book Three in the Janet Maple Series)




    Janet Maple and Dennis Walker are aces at catching the bad guys, but an assignment involving an international gangster and a sleazy politician just might have them in over their heads.




    With the man of her dreams on her arm and a dream job at one of NYC’s top private agencies, Janet’s life is nearly perfect. It all changes when a high profile case falls into her lap, and Janet finds her competitive streak kicking in, taking risks she shouldn't be taking.




    Dennis Walker loves catching the bad guys as much as he loves being in the limelight. Will he be able to share the laurels with his girlfriend who also happens to be his work partner? And will the bad guys get caught?




    *Bad Guys Get Caught is book three of the Janet Maple Series, but it can easily be read on its own.*




    My Thoughts








    From the beginning of the series we are rooting for Janet and Dennis to become a couple, in book one they meet and sparks fly but as coworkers they leave it at that for the most part. However in the second book the two realize that their attraction to each other should not be denied as it is more than just physical but also a mental connection as the two just “click”.




    In each book the pair find themselves in investigations where it seems like the “bad guy” may get off scot free until at the last with just one final piece of evidence they are served overdue justice!




    Now that Dennis and Janet have taken their relationship to a higher level of intimacy their competitive personalities cause them friction. When their latest case leads the pair to take measures that neither approve of very much to find the necessary evidence to prove that the squeaky clean politician they are investigating is in fact not as he portrays himself and the link between he and the gangster whose establishments he frequents is a bit more than just that of a loyal customer.




    Both Dennis and Janet get a little too caught up and do a bit of damage before each of them realize their work is not more important than their deepening relationship, what could have turned into a complete disaster instead turns into triumph and watching it unfold was a lot of fun. Baxter is as usual his adorable self and even Peter Laskin has a shining moment or two! You have to read this last one, the bad guys never knew exactly what upset their nefarious operations!

    Good Book... Good Series

    The first in the series was free. It was interesting and well written with well developed characters and a good plot so I purchased the remaining books in the series. This is number three in the series and it didn't disappoint.
