The horizon was perfectly still, the endless straight line of the placid sea drawn flat against the clear sky like blue stripes on a brightly coloured beach towel. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful innovative amateur sleuth chick lit tale 2 Aug 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
In London thirty-something Fleur Bonner works at Boulden's, an art gallery and antique shop that has been around for a few centuries but now specializes in fakes and forgeries, something she is unaware of. Her life drifts as even her employment is in a holding pattern in Fleur's mind until she finds something worth focusing on. Her friends and family insist she is too smart to stay at Boulden's and encourage her to go out and do things so that she may find something she is passionate about. More to get people off her back than any real desire and pushed by good neighbor Ben Fleur joins the Battersea Park New Runner's Marathon Club consisting of losers, misfits, and the lonely; in her mind she is a perfect fit.

When her boss Brinly "Brin" St. John Boulden suddenly vanishes, Fleur is left floundering. Worse than probably losing her three-month old job, the police believe she is part of an art forgery ring selling fakes. Fleur suddenly has focus as she investigates the disappearance, the art forgery ring, and the marathon club in order to insure her future is outside of a prison cell as she is the only one left holding the Boulden's bag.

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE is a delightful innovative amateur sleuth chick lit tale that stars a wonderful aimless heroine who begins to find focus with marathon running though her immediate need is to clear her name. The amusing story line is fun due to Fleur and her running compatriots who make street corner observations on life. Fans will enjoy this charmer as they wonder whether Fleur can complete metaphorically the race for the first time in her life.
