Review: Run by:Becky Johnson
About the Book:
A decades old mystery and a deadly game of cat and mouse will change Charlotte Marshall forever. Charlotte has a good life: friends, family, a successful career. Her perfect life is destroyed when research for a book and a connection from her past plunges her into the middle of her worst nightmare. On the run, with no one to trust, Charlotte begins to unravel the work of a sadistic murderer. Afraid and alone, she will learn the meaning of trust and just when to run.
Run is Becky Johnson’s first published novel, but not her first book. Books are Becky’s passion and always have been. She used to get in trouble in school for reading during class! Becky has Master’s degrees in social work and history, and for her day job she is a social worker. In her writing she tries to answer a question that is important to both social work and history: Why? She always wants to know why people do the things they do or feel the way they feel. When not reading or writing she enjoys yoga, running, cooking, and makes a pretty mean chili!
Charlotte Marshall is a author and is terrible need of another story. When it seems she has exhausted all ideas for a book, she remembers a new story she has heard, when she was a little girl. As Charlotte begins writing all she remembers, she discovers there maybe more to the story. She begins researching, finding that several other girls also suffered the same fate.
When Charlotte is attacked, she calls Agent Jack Moore for his help in the matter. As they race to find the killer, they find themselves in grave danger. While it is great to solve a murder mystery, Charlotte soon realizes she has found more than she has bargained for.
Even though, Run is a somewhat short read with less than 200 pages, the author gets right down to the heart of it real quick---and I liked how fast paced it was. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to the next book in the series.
