Book Description

The sequel to Dead Running, Dying to Run, is now available.

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?

A light-hearted and clean romantic suspense, by #1 Bestselling Christian author, Cami Checketts, Dead Running will have you lacing up your running shoes and racing for the sequel, Dying to Run.

“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

"Dead Running can make a claim not many mystery/thrillers can, and that is that it is also really funny. I loved everything about the book. There was murder, romance, family bonds, 5K training, humor, good guys, bad guys, and an ending that left room for a sequel."

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun romantic comedy, with a side of suspense! 16 May 2012
By Lexie A. Hogan - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I personally think that the book's description is a little misleading. Though the storyline is all there, it fails to describe the humorous side that made me fall in love with the book! I so enjoyed the lighthearted edge lining everything from being chased by murderous "Muscle Men" to swooning over "Dr. Tattoo". It was such a fun read and left me wanting more!

One of my favorite parts of this book was the characters, especially the main character Cassidy (Cassie) Christensen. She is hilarious! Her character is sassy, sarcastic, and completely accident prone (which results in more than one embarassingly awkward situation!) And even though her running journey is full of hilarious episodes, I admired her determination and strength as she trained for a marathon and eventually accomplished her goals.

I also enjoyed the characterization of even the minor roles. They are each unique and charming in their own way. There is Cassie's grandma who is definitely not your average "sweet little old lady". She is sharp and sassy (wonder who Cassie gets it from?!) and no-nonsense. She doesn't take crap from anyone and was probably the only character that Cassie was actually really afraid of (including the men who were trying to kill her!)

Then there's Elizabeth or "Hot Redhead" as Cassie dubs her. She's a perky little fireball with a perfect body and an unhealthy attachment to Cassie. At times, she acts completely nuts and that's why I loved her!

And don't even get me started on Cassie's two love interests! Do men like that even exist?! Hot, tempting, and completely swoonworthy!

Dead Running is a fast paced read, full of fun and quirky characters and plenty of action.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great clean romatic suspense story! 18 May 2012
By T. Westhoff - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! This was an edge of your seat, really who's the bad guy, laugh out loud romantic suspense! I'm so glad I got this on my Kindle! It was a great escape from the messiness that is my house right now and encouraged me to start running again. I love to run, but doubt that I'll ever run a marathon-that makes me cringe! It was interesting seeing how she really felt about the guys that were after her and I liked that she tried to be careful, but wanted to live anyway! Great book with a very happy ending!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 26 Jan. 2013
By Yvonne Reviews - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars OMG Can the girl be anymore stupid? 30 July 2013
By Jenn - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only read 23% of this annoying e-book. I can't read another word. The lead character is in constant danger, yet continues to run every morning before sunrise alone. She has encountered the bad guy several times, and has endangered her friends and 4year old nephew. I just can't believe anyone would be this dumb. I'm glad it was a free download. Don't waste your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept Me Guessing 10 Jan. 2013
By TXReader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the voice of Cassidy, the main character. She was so honest. She said embarrassing things and things I wouldn't have expected, which made her seem so realistic. She didn't feel contrived at all. I loved her.

Checketts kept me guessing until the end. I had no idea who'd turn out the be the bad guy. Throughout the story, Cassidy is confused about her feelings for two men. I found myself rooting for one and then rooting for the other. I felt as confused as she did! Checketts did a great job making me feel like Cassidy.

I also enjoyed the action and found myself clicking and clicking and clicking through my Kindle to get to the end and finally see how it would be resolved.

I also liked the secondary characters and felt they were developed well. And I thought Cassidy's pet names for the characters like "Hot Redhead," "Muscle Man," and "Greasy Beanpole" were funny, especially because I've found myself giving similar nicknames to people whose real names I don't know. I think that added a dimension of realism as well.

And I loved, loved, loved that it was clean.

Dead Running is exciting, action-packed, well-written, and has plenty of romance. I highly recommend it.
