4 Stars from LASR
The main focus of this story is Josie, a woman deeply affected by both her past and her relationship with her family. I was quite intrigued by Josie’s “secret” and found it to be an interesting twist once revealed. But because of this secret and incidences in the past, Josie has her walls firmly in place as she seeks to both protect herself and protect others from what she fears will happen if they get close. As the title implies, Josie seems to run from her problems rather than face them head-on and is a self-described “runner.”
But with Cade and the children she cares for, she may have finally found a reason to stop running. I really enjoyed watching Josie’s relationship develop with both Cade and the children. The children, as well as other characters, seem determined to play matchmaker and bring the couple together. Josie goes through quite a transformation as the story progresses and Cade works through her defenses. It was enjoyable to watch.
Still Running is a wonderful story that I found to be a very entertaining read. Josie’s journey as she learns to stop running is one that many should enjoy.
