RUNNING by Patrice Fitzgerald

I really didn’t want to like this book, which is why it probably took me so long to read it after the author sent it in asking for a review. The premise sounded interesting, but I was just kid of “meh”. I was skimming through my pile of ebooks and decided to give this one a shot. Why not, I was getting bored of reading the same old stuff.

Two days later I had finished it.

This is one of those books that grabs you by the back of the shirt and takes you running a breakneck pace through it. There’s no parts that drone, there’s real flat places. It’s just all moving all the time. You get to know the characters, on a deeper level, while still moving the plot of the book forward. Not once did I think “oh, come on, get on with it already.”

What’s interesting is that I found myself even feeling slightly sorry for the villain in the story and the position they put themselves in. Perhaps I’m getting soft. Hmmmm.

Totally recommended for those looking for good, easy read with some thrills along the way.


Catherine Young, Vice President and newly-anointed Democratic nominee, is surging in the polls. The race is on against opposition candidate Jerusha Hutchins, former stewardess and blonde beauty, who is the darling of the far-right Liberty Party. But with political wunderkind Zane Zarillo running her campaign, Catherine is bound to hold her lead.

Suddenly a medical emergency puts the President in the hospital and forces Catherine to act in his place… a perfect opportunity for her to show her Oval Office stuff. Just when her election looks like a sure thing, Catherine’s romantic fling from decades ago comes to light. Will the American public accept a woman with a past?

Rating: ★★★★☆
