    2. I really enjoyed this book! I liked Charlotte right off the bat. She's quirky and smart and determined. The story was very well written and fast-paced. I'm looking forward to reading the second book.

    4. More than interestingI was not sure what I was about to read when I clicked on the eBook edition of Run. The woodsy image on the cover reminded me of my backyard, but it did not give a hint to what was inside. What I found was a story that was more than just interesting, it was engrossing. I could not put the book down to do work. The main character made me laugh because she had many of the same quirks as I do. Eerie really. But then that was why I enjoyed this book so much. If you are in search [...]

    5. Run by Becky Johnson is the first book in the Charlotte Marshall Mystery series and it is a good one.

    6. This was a totally engrossing story. I had a hard time putting it down. In fact I wound up staying up til 2 am reading because I got so into the story that I didn't pay any attention to the time. Love those kinds of stories.Charlotte Marshall is an author looking for her next story. While trying to decide where her new story would go, she remembers a news story from her childhood. The story was about a young girl who was found dead. She had been raped, tortured and mutilated. Charlotte began doi [...]

    7. Great suspense that made me want moreI don't normally pick a mystery / suspense thriller to read but this was recommended to me by a good friend. I found myself being sucked into the story early and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen, but at the same time not wanting the story to end. I can't wait for her next book!

    8. Great bookA page turner that I didn't want to put down. Enjoyed following Charlotte's deductive reasoning as she's on the run and looking for a killer. I Read Run straight through start to finish, and am looking forward to Book 2 in the series.

    9. The author mailed me the ebook version in exchange for an honest reviewWhen I just started reading this book I was hooked. After first 2 chapters I was certain I would continue reading it. It kind of reminded me of the episode of Criminal Minds series, of which I'm a huge fan, so I was very excited to read further.The storyline:the book is about a mystery writer - Charlotte Marshall - who is sort of in a writing slump and suddenly remembers a news piece from her childhood on a murdered teenage g [...]

    10. "Run" by Becky Johnson is a fast-paced, heart-pounding, visceral journey that takes the reader from distant observer to unwilling prey in a harrowing 126 pages. The first thing I should note is that I don't normally enjoy first-person narrative and my genre preference very rarely leads me outside of the fantasy or paranormal realms, but neither predisposition (usually deal breakers for me) were an issue with this book. The first-person narrative was not only enjoyable but imperative to the exper [...]

    11. It’s difficult to talk about a book you enjoyed without giving out important plot points, but I don’t like to give away details that might ruin the experience for other potential readers. So keeping to my belief, I’ll start out by saying that Run, is one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a while. We meet Charlotte Marshall, a quirky writer looking to spark her creative mind with something new and refreshing for her work-in-progress. What she finds instead is a connection to a thirty yea [...]

    13. I received this book from Shut Up & Read in exchange for an honest reviewThis is a fairly short story that I finished in just under two and a half hours but it was two and a half hours well spent. The story wasn't perfect and felt a bit stilted in places. Having said that, I found myself really getting into it. I love a good thriller and liked the idea that Charlotte tried to keep herself as off the radar as possible while failing to realise just how much of a Big Brother society we live in. [...]

    14. Run by Becky Johnson is a pleasant, quick read. The prologue was short and hooked me in quickly. With a clever segue way to the past, Johnson introduces us to the narrator Charlotte Marshall. Dyslexic author and pet owner, Charlotte is researching her next novel when she becomes obsessed with investigating the murder of a series of teenage girls. After going to the FBI with what she has found, Marshall, herself, becomes the target. The story is interesting and, for the most part, believable. Cha [...]

    15. A Fast Paced Ride!Ms Johnson does a great job of developing the main character, Char, from page one. She is likable, intelligent and tough.The story is essentially about a mystery writer that ends up having to discover the identity of a serial killer before he finds her. It's non-stop action and relatable character will keep you turning the pages until the end!

    16. 'Run' is the kind of book that pulls you in and doesn't let go. The storyline was intense. I loved how it played out. Charlotte's determination into finding the truth was full of passion and dedication. She was a great lead. This book was thrilling, suspenseful, and full of action and mystery. A great add to your tbr list.

    17. Great book! Quick read! Great for the beach! Descriptive and strong characters. Compelling drama! Completely worth it!! [full disclaimer that I did pay for this book but I know the author from High School and she's a great person and author!!)

    18. Run is a fast-paced, suspenseful page turner with great characters. Recommended for fans of Janet Evanovich and Stephanie Bond.

    19. You have to suspend any kind of reality check to read this book. So many things happen that are just too hard to believe. First of all, this young writer stumbles across a number of murders and connects them as the work of a serial killer. Somehow all the police and the FBI have missed this for 30 years and she discovers it in a day or two of online searching? This could be believable if it was fully fleshed out (some reasons for her special insights?), but it wasn't. Then, she gives her reports [...]

    21. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I've wavered a little about how many stars to give this book. It has three stars because, although it grabbed me and tugged me into the storyline, I did feel that there was an awful lot of summarising in this book.The blurb of the book sounded really intriguing. I like thrillers and this book promised to be really intense to read. In many ways, it was. It pulled me into the world and I could relate [...]

I am not quite sure exactly why but the writing was just off for me.

    25. I found the premise of this book so engaging because the MC in this thriller is an author, and some of her more quirky habits reminded me of myself and the way my thought processes tend to function. The idea that someone who writes novels for a living can use that analytical part of their minds to connect the dots between similar murders felt kind of empowering. I almost gave myself a pat on the back and then had to remember I wasn't the one being the genius, the fictitious MC had all of the sma [...]

    26. Charlotte Marshall is an author and stuck for an idea for her third book. All she has on the page is a blinking cursor. Then she remembers a time twenty years before when her mom hurriedly shut off the radio as the news reported a young girl – the victim of rape and murder. She begins to search for archives of that story. The writer’s block was gone, but she needed more detail so she stumbles upon a website listing unsolved murders by state. She begins to find over twenty more young girls wh [...]

    27. First, let me just say that the ending was great and I really enjoyed it!Okay, when I first started reading the book, I had trouble connecting with the main character Char. I felt like I didn't know enough about her to relate to her. Then as the story progressed, I started to think of it as an episode in a crime show (in a good way): we don't know much about the characters, the story goes from 0 to 60 very fast, and there is a resolution at the end that still leaves a few questions unanswered. T [...]
