Book Review and Giveaway: Dead Run/Dying To Run

Dead Running

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.

My Review:

Cassidy Christensen had no idea what possessed her to enter a 5K run.  She even wins an entry to run in a marathon as a prize.  They think that is a prize?  Finally thinking she can put her exercise science degree to good use, she starts her training.  She is running for her parents who were murdered two years ago by mercenaries.  She starts training with a gorgeous runner, who is being followed by a hot redhead who wants Cassidy out of the picture.  She is being followed by the mysterious Dr. Tattoo.  He always seems to show up when she needs him.  Why is he following her around?  Next we have the two threatening creeps who are also following her around attempting to scare her and telling her that her father is still alive.  What in the world has she gotten herself into?  Who can she trust to tell her the truth.

This is the first book I have read by Cami Checketts.  It is wonderful.  A true humorous mystery.  The characters are written wonderfully.  It has just the right amount of humor.  I laughed out loud several times.  With just enough secrets to keep you guessing until the end.  Thank you to the author for gifting this book to me for a fair and honest review.  Please read this book.  It is that good! 

Dying to Run

Cassidy Christensen wants to run.

Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.

This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.

My Review:

Two weeks after the arrest of Damon and the hit men, Cassidy is starting to settle back into her normal life.  Unknown to her, Damon has been released from jail and will not be happy until Cassidy pays. Damon kidnaps Cassidy from her home and drives cross country, hoping to flush her father out of hiding.  After finding out Dr. Tattoo's real identity , she is shocked to discover that he may be working for the other side.  She doesn't know who she can trust.  

This is a short sequel to Dead Running, letting us know what has happened to Cassidy.  She does not lead a boring life.  She is so in love with Dr.  Tattoo but is love enough.  She doesn't agree with some of his decisions but can she live with them?   This was once again an amazing book and left plenty of room for possibly another series (hopefully).
