The genre is romantic suspense but Dead Running was best described by Lexie from The Book Bug - a light-hearted suspense with a side of PG-rated romance.
Cassidy Christensen is running.
Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.
Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.
Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.
With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she'll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future.
Dying to Run
Cassidy Christensen wants to run.
Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.
This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.
Ten things you wish you knew when you were younger.
1. Lawnmower blades are vicious. I know you think cutting through tender grass wouldn’t require a sharp blade, but those things can cut through skin and bone with unreal accuracy and the recovery from something like that isn’t pleasant.
2. Confidence is 99.99% internal and quite often you have to talk yourself into having it.
3. Your hair is always going to be curly and completely out of style so just save yourself a lot of stress and embrace the frizz.
4. Don’t waste so much time worrying what other people think, chances are they’re doing the same thing and haven’t even noticed you tripping over thin air, again.
5. Staying on the Lord’s side of the line will make you happier, keep you safer, and take you farther than you can imagine.
6. Don’t cry over Tyler James (names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent) for weeks and annoy all your friends. He really wasn’t that cute or that fun to be around and your future husband is a million times better kisser.
7. Blowing up mailboxes with dry ice bombs isn’t very smart and even though you don’t care now, it’s illegal and it’s going to bite when you get caught.
8. Stop coating your body with baby oil and laying out on the trampoline until you’re fried. Wrinkles at thirty-eight are going to be entirely your fault.
9. Look for that kid who doesn’t have a friend and say hello. You can never go wrong being nice.
10. Smile and be happy. Life’s too short to hold grudges or be annoyed. Smile and everyone you meet will smile with you.
Thanks for asking me to make this list. I really would give myself all of this advice when I was younger. Except for the lawnmower, I kind of like my finger nubbins.
