As a fan of Claude Monet’s I am always moved by how he took the negatives in his life to made them positives. No one liked his paintings, they criticized his innovative style, and what he thought was okay he went with. Life may knock you around but look for the one shining moment in the day and celebrate a Little Victory.
REVIEW from Mary Gramlich "The Reading Reviewer"
RUN WILD by Lorie O’Clare
What are the rules for this game we are playing?
Natasha King is great at the details of being a bounty hunter and can work the case as proficiently as the rest of her family. She knows to do the job and not get personally involved, which keeps your head clear of distractions. When the case becomes her father, who has been accused of murder there is nothing but emotional attachment involved. He may have been a parent that was out of her life more than in but he is her family and she will find out what is going on.
Trent Oakley is the small town sheriff who is trying to capture Natasha’s father but seems to be trying to snag her attention as well. She is a firecracker who has stirred up more intense feelings than anyone has ever before and staying focused is turning out to be difficult with her around. But Trent, like his father before him knows how to get solve the crime and close the case and that is what he is going to do. Natasha is front and center everywhere he looks and he does allot of looking in her direction because for the first time long-term plans with a woman sound like something else he might like.
As the details of the gruesome murder and all the possible suspects, starts to unfold there are more questions than answers. Natasha’s father is well liked and no one believes he could have done this crime but all signs point right at him. Trent and Natasha together are beginning to see that someone is leading them in this direction, but the question is who. Throw in some folk lore and superstition and you have yourself more trouble mixing than you can ever imagine.
Hold on for a great ride through the mystery and complications of love when two people want the same thing just not the same way. Lorie O’Clare writes characters that show both their strength and weakness making the reader feel as though they are people they know and respect.
