And Then She Ran By Karen Clarke

And Then She Ran By Karen Clarke


How far would you go to keep your baby safe?

The fist flew past Grace’s face and smashed into the wall behind her, flicking a switch in her head. Grace bundled her eight-week-old daughter into her carry cot, opened the door and ran.

Her life in New York, job as a chef, and the friends she loved faded into the background. She needed to keep her baby safe. She needed to get as far away from Patrick as possible.

Now, staying in a remote cottage in Wales with her aunt, Grace is trying to start again. But she can’t shake the uneasy feeling that she’s been followed.

And then she finds a note. Left on her bed. A tiny scrap of paper with scrawl in bright red pen. Keep her close. Anything could happen.

The breath catches in her lungs. She’s been found. Patrick wants his baby back.

But Grace will do everything to stop him.

My Thoughts:

This was absolutely brilliant, it is fast paced and engaging with plenty of twists and turns. I thought I had worked out what was going to happen but I could never of imagined the route the story then went down. It was an addictive and chilling read with a very dramatic ending. Grace is running away from her partner, she has her baby with her and escapes to Wales to her aunts place. Grace is trying to start again until she finds things related to her in the cottage, has her partner found her? and also who is this mysterious guy that is keen on Grace, does he know more than he is letting on? The ending you would never have guessed and it was a brilliant ending too. It had everything I love in a thriller and more and I look forward to Karen’s next book.
