Book Review: Running from the Past

Title: Running from the Past

Author: Cindy Davis





It started as a beautiful fall afternoon

Glenn and Lindsay Reade are out buying used books for their bookstore—always seeking that valuable First Edition so coveted by collectors.

The first warning is swift and to the point

But Glenn and Lindsay don’t get it until their lives are threatened a second time. All they’ve done is read a young girl’s diary and attempt to locate the owner. Just because the journal describes some horrific events is no reason for anyone to want them dead. Is it?

The book is obviously more than fifty years old.

Who in the tiny close-knit Berkshire town could still care?

But someone does.

And that someone is willing to kidnap and murder to protect a long-buried secret.

Sometimes we ask for trouble.

Sometimes drops in out of nowhere.

And sometimes trouble hits close to home.




My review

5/5 Stars

It’s always the small towns that contain the deepest, darkest secrets. When Glenn and Lindsay find an old diary, they are horrified at what they read inside but since the thing is half a century old, they push it out of their heads. Until their lives become endangered.

Running from the Past was a wonderful whodunit which kept me flipping pages, wanting to know all I could about the characters and the mystery they found themselves in.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
