I have really enjoyed each book in the US Marshals series by Lisa Harris. While each story is complete on its own, the relationship between Jonas and Madison develops throughout the series and there’s one mystery thread that also plays a part in each story and wraps up in The Catch.
I enjoyed all the twists and turns in this story! There was one twist I totally didn’t see coming. It was so surprising and suspenseful. While there isn’t much romance in this series, I did enjoy Jonas and Madison’s relationship and how it developed throughout each story.
The Catch is the third and final book in the US Marshal series. Even though there is the mystery thread that starts in book one and is solved in this story, I think that you could easily read read The Catch as a standalone as Ms. Harris does a good job of summarizing what has happened up to this point. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next story Lisa Harris writes!

"Four months ago Madison had been shot in her own home. He'd found her lying on the kitchen floor in a pool of blood . . . But the most puzzling part of her injuries had the been the partial amnesia. . . she still didn't know who had pulled that trigger."
Now U. S. Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn are tasked with finding the killer of another woman shot in her own home; a local judge's wife . . . except when confronted with video evidence of who had been in his home, Judge Saylor insists that his young mistress could never have pulled the trigger. But case gets even more curious; not only has Becca Lambert gone on the run, but the woman tasked with baby-sitting her newborn son is missing . . . along with the infant.
Being thrown into a new case wasn't exactly how Madison and Jonas had expected to be re-united after Jonas' lengthy absence. They had missed each other during the weeks Jonas underwent rigorous training for a Special Operations Group, and yet Madison was still struggling with the same underlying circumstances; until she solved her husband's murder, she wasn't willing to put someone else that she loved (yes, loved) in the cross-hairs of a killer . . . and Madison knew without a shadow of doubt that she was being watched.
"I'm learning there is a point where I have to simply let go and let God take over . . . I'm tired of living as if I died that day as well."
Nearly entirely plot driven, this series conclusion oozes with multiple layers and endless amounts of surprising connections . . . giving the reader, as well as the characters . . . plenty of reasons to "catch up" to the truth.
