After witnessing an attack on her father’s life, Cassidy Christensen is never the same. When both her parents are killed in cold blood, her life is completely turned upside down. She now lives with her grandmother. Her brother’s family doesn’t live far away. They are all very close, but Cassidy feels as if something is missing from her life. She wins an entry into the Utah Marathon and begins an intensive training program in preparation.
As Cassidy continues her training, she finds herself right in the middle of a human trafficking ring with many shady characters and a few weirdoes too. There’s hot Dr. Jesse who is covered in tattoos. The handsome Damon and the very jealous “Hot Redhead” who continually warns Cassidy to stay away from Damon. Let’s not forget Muscle Man who is trying to kill Cassidy.
It’s not long before Cassidy realizes her entire family is in danger. She has no intentions of losing her grandmother, brother, sister-in-law and her nephew the same way she lost her parents. However, danger seems to lurk at every corner. Distracting her are the hot men she meets - Jesse and Damon. She’s attracted to them both, but she’s not sure she can even trust them.
What a page turner this book is! I kept reading and finished it in two days – I never read that fast. I loved everything about this book from the characters to the storyline. There was a great mix of romance, mystery and humor. What a well-rounded book. It’s a clean, romantic suspense that keeps you guessing. I kind of had my suspicions about the real “culprits”, but Cami put it together in one nice package with a bow on it. Absolutely adored this book!

Dying to Run picks up right where Dead Running left off. Once again we meet up with Cassidy Christensen and once again she’s in trouble. The human trafficking ring is still after her and intent on killing her and her family. This time she finds herself to be their prisoner.
She puts her faith in Dr. Jesse but she wonders if that’s a smart thing to do. Is there anyone she can truly trust?
All of our favorite characters from the first book are back in this one. I love revisiting with them and it’s only two weeks after Dead Running. There is never a dull moment in this book – it keeps you at the edge of your seat. This is a novella and only 78 pages, but what an action-packed 78 pages!
I’m hoping we’ll get another entry into this series and a longer one!
I give both of these books 5 kitties!

What is the writing life like?
Some people might think the writing life is boring - you’ve got your rear parked in a chair as you stare at a computer screen for hours on end. The truth is it’s extremely exciting. I live vicariously through interesting, funny characters. I get to travel to spots I couldn’t afford, and kiss good-looking men without getting in trouble with my honey.
A friend said to me this morning, “I’m so into your book, I feel like I’m living in an alternate reality right now.” I just smiled and explained that my challenge is bringing myself back to reality. I’ve always been a day dreamer so living in the clouds is nothing new for me. My husband likes to tease me, “When Peter Pan and the Tooth Fairy fly by, tell them hi.”
The other part of the writing life (marketing) I also really enjoy. I meet the most amazing people at writer’s conferences, book clubs, libraries, book signings, etc. I’m always impressed by how many great people there are in this world. I love getting out there and making new friends.
I love writing. Even on the hard days (when I get a critique back and have to revise yet again) it’s much more fun than any other job I’ve had.
