Run Run Runaway
Destiny Bay Romances - Forever Yours
(Sweet Edition #1)
by Helen Conrad
Adult Romance

It seemed like a good idea at the time. 

The trouble is, when you run from your problems, you often find out your biggest obstacle is along for the tripñit's you! Reid Carrington realizes that when he finds Jennifer and recognizes the quiet desperation in her eyes. Can he save someone who doesn't want to be saved? Or like a lifeguard rescuing a swimmer, will she pull him down into the undertow in the end?

Recipes for Jennifer's Mango Salsa and Tilly's Bruschetta included. 

Purchase from Amazon.

My Thoughts
I'm a true fan of romance novels, and I was intrigued to hear that Helen Conrad was re-writing some of her previous novels to appeal more to an audience who appreciates a "clean" romance. Run Run Runaway is a fun romance that reads much like a soap opera. Lots of romance, family drama, and inter-connected characters. And I really enjoyed it! It took me a little while to figure out both Reid and Jennifer, but the author did a great job of revealing their character bit by bit throughout the story. I also enjoyed the beach town where the book was set. It was fun to imagine what it would be like to live in a beach community.

I did feel that there was a bit of "head hopping" throughout the book. It confused me at first, but I was able to look past it once I really got into the book. I also felt that the shift in Reid and Jennifer's friendship was a bit abrupt. I wish it would have followed the pacing of the rest of the book a bit more. 

However, overall, this was a fun read! I'm looking forward to getting to know the Carrington family better in the rest of this series. [3.5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from the author via Prism Book Tours in exchange for my fair and honest review.
