Run by Mandasue Heller
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Run is the first book by Mandasue in two years, not only is she back with her original publishers and never fails to disappoint. But she is back with a bang to say the least. I have been a fan of Mandasue for years and having read all of her books. Run is certainly worth the wait I loved it.
The story starts off with one cliffhanging Prologue giving me an OMG moment, which made me want to read more. Then we follow Leanne Riley on a journey who is trying to get her life back on track after being cheated on by her ex. Which most of us can relate to has this isn't a nice feeling at all. Making Leanne wary of men. On a night out with her best friend she meets hottie Jake. Leanne isn't easy to please, but Jake tries his best to break through the wall she's built around herself. But good looks and money can't hide a multitude of sins. Is that good-looking face just a mask? what is he hiding from his past? what's more, what will it take to make it slip, and who will die in the process . . . ?
Run is full of real life characters that are easy to relate to and Mandasue does a brilliant job of building the characters relationship up throughout the first half of the story. But oh my days what a tense and gritty second half of the story. I couldn't put it down this is certainly a page turner.
Set in Manchester this story is full of secrets, sandal, and murder exactly what you would expect to find in a Mandasue novel.
Seriously you guys are in for a treat, this is a must read which I highly recommend giving it 4.5 stars.
Thank you to Pan Macmillan and Netgalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
