Running Home by Cami Checketts

In Cassidy’s battle against human trafficking there are two choices: run or be captured.

Cassidy’s humanitarian mission takes an ugly turn when human traffickers attack. Cassidy doesn’t know where to run—home to America, into Jesse’s arms, or any direction she can to escape the traffickers. Innocent families are being ripped apart and Cassidy must decide if she’s brave enough to stop running and join the fight.

I read the first two in the Run series and LOVED them, so I was very excited to read this book.

Although this is really short at 72 pages, in true Cami style it’s packed with action, suspense and romance. In fact there was a little more romance in this book than the other two. It seems that everyone has found someone to love, and even though one at first make me think “what the what?”, the couple as a pair grew on me and I ended up saying “good for you”! That’s what makes the romances in these books so great. Even though they’re being hunted by killers, they still have to deal with the positives and questions about their relationships.

My favorite thing about these books is the humor! Even with all the danger going on, Cami has written characters that have a sence of humor that adds a little comic relief to the white knuckle moments.

I know it can get hard to keep a series going, but I’d love to know how the stories of Cassidy and Jesse, and the other two couples play out. I’ve grown very fond of these people. Please don’t leave us in the dark Cami!!

I really loved this book, as well as the first two in the series, and really hope there’s at least one more. If you haven’t read the first two in this series I would recommend you read them first as one book starts where the last one left off.

  1. Hi Vicki,

    I might have to pass on this book, as good as your review was.

    It does sound as though the series needs to be read in order to fully appreciate it and I think that in such a few short pages, the romance might be a bit too sweet and sickly for me!

    I did enjoy checking out the links to the author page though and I think it is great that a portion of each book sale goes to such a worthy charitable cause.

    I volunteer for my local hospice charity and we have recently been donated a bundle of the latest book from a local author, who wanted us to sell them and keep all the proceeds for the hospice, whilst a portion of all remaining sales was also to be donated.

    It is always good and restores my faith in people, when they choose to give something back to the community in which they live and work.

    I hope that you are having a good weekend.


    • Hi Yvonne~ The romance isn’t at all too sweet or sickly. There isn’t much time for a lot of it, but there is a little here and there to give a little reprieve from the action. I don’t like a lot of romance in books, but a little here and there is ok, and that’s what this book’s got.

  2. Looks like an emotional read…

  3. Thanks for the fun review, Vicki! I am writing the fourth book now and telling Sham and Tasha’s story, I think you’ll like them!
