Ashley Adams is finally starting to
take her life back after leaving her abusive husband Peter.
The divorce is now final, she’s living on her own, and she’s
training to run a marathon. While out on a run with her
friend Marv, Ashley is almost killed when she witnesses a
murder. Homicide detective Rick Edwards is investigating the
crime. Since losing his wife and child, Rick devotes all of
his time to work in an effort to keep the guilt and pain of
losing them at bay. While Ashley is convinced the killer is
Peter and signs do point to him, maybe he’s not. But who
else would want Ashley dead? Rick is determined to find out
who’s after Ashley. She’s become important to him. She’s
saved him from himself.
Running Scared is big on emotion and suspense.
From the beginning you think you know who the killer is but
there is always doubt. Rick is a great guy buried in grief.
He suffered a heartbreaking loss as well as a possible
painful betrayal. Ashley is a survivor in every sense. She
gets a new lease on life when she finally musters the
courage to leave Peter. The romance between Ashley and Rick
develops slowly and realistically. I was just as anxious to
see who the killer was as I was to see Rick an Ashley
together! Running Scared is a very good
story from a terrific author.
