Dead Running by Cami Checketts, Book Review


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. A light-hearted suspense with a side of PG-rated romance, Dead Running will have you lacing up your running shoes and impatiently waiting for the sequel. "Dead Running was everything I was hoping it would be, captivating, invigorating, and a page turner that I could not, would not, put down! Cami Checketts writes books that will make you think, and make you feel. She captivated me with The Sister Pact, and doesn't lose speed with her newest "must read," Dead Running." Sheila DeChantal Book Reviewer - Book Journey "Brilliant characterization, edge-of-your-seat suspense and a touch of humor make Dead Running a rare treat..." Wendy Davy Award winning author of Deadly Chase

My Review:

Dead Running is a great action/suspense novel that I could not put down!!  We are seriously talking about burning eyes because I couldn't stop reading it!   Cassidy's character is one of my favorites I have ever read!  She is fun, vibrant, stubborn and bigger than life in her personality.  She does what she wants,says what she thinks, and is true to herself.  Her character is what makes this book pop!  I loved the running aspect, especially since Cassidy really isn't a runner by choice and doesn't have a desire to be one!  It is hilarious when she wins the entry to a marathon!  She tackles life head-on and finds herself in all types of difficult predicaments.  I was on the figurative edge of my seat throughout the book and Checketts keeps the reader on their toes until the very end!  If you think this is a typical suspense book where you will have it all figured out...think again!  Once I finished reading, I was 'running'to grab the two other books in this series because I couldn't get enough of Cassidy and her friends!

You can pick up your own copy of Dead Running via Amazon.

Happy Reading!!!

  1. Wow! Thank you for the wonderful review! Cassidy was one of my favorite characters to have in my head. I'd walk around the house and just start giggling as she talked to me. My boys thought I was nuts, but that's nothing new!
