  My Review:
Cami Checkett's new book, Dead Running, is about a runner, but your heart will also be running fast as you read this story! You are kept on constant edge as Cassidy's life is in danger. To compound things, she also doesn't know who the good and bad guys are. Cami does an awesome job of blurring the lines of suspicion, where eventually you think everyone is out to get Cassidy, the main character. 

Speaking of! She is a "kick-'butt" gal who pushes the limit and doesn't give up. As I read this I truly felt like a wimp. I don't think I would ever have the resolve that Cassidy did as she trained to run a marathon. I am not a runner, thanks to my bad knees that don't have much cartilage left. Even if I did, I'm not sure I could/would train like she did. I fully admire all of my friends out there that are runners. You are awesome!!

Another part I enjoyed about the book are the thoroughly "delicious" men that are chasing Cassidy. One is, Damon, fellow runner and handsome businessman, and the other is the  ruggedly built Dr. Jesse "Tattoo"; they reminded me of vanilla and chocolate ice-cream. As a reader you end up just as confused as Cassidy about who you like the best. You will be very surprised by the ending, but also very satisfied. I recommend this romantic thriller to all those who want to be reading on the edge of their seat. I know that anyone that runs will especially love and relate to this main character. Those of us that are not runners can just sit back and enjoy the mystery and romance that will be found in Dead Running.

Make sure that you enter the drawing because there are truly some wonderful prizes to be won!!
