Book Review. Dead Running by Cami Checketts.

Dead Running is infused with inherent conflict. From page one I was hooked. Setting, tension, character: this book accomplished so much right from the get go.

Author Cami Checketts has a distinctive voice, and MC Cassidy Christensen is a character anyone can empathize with. And she has a huge sense of humor!

I wasn’t sure who Cassidy could trust. The way supporting characters conveniently drifted into scene had me wondering if they were all after her. She has plenty of people working against her including a Nasty Muscle Man, Beanpole Stalker, Hot Redhead, and even her own brother proves to be a pain. The heroes kept changing, from Damon to Jesse (seriously dreamy dude) and then back again.

I loved—loved!— reading about the races Cassie runs because I have run several of them. It was so fun to feel a part of the setting. The story took on more of a romantic tone as the story played out and it had a nice twist in the end. I think this is a light, fun read for anyone who enjoys clean suspense.
