When a fairytale fantasy night becomes a nightmare, Chessa Paxton must run for her life...but will the truth set her free?
Chessa Paxton, an event planner in Lake Tahoe, celebrates a successful night at the Happily Ever After Ball, but her dream quickly becomes a nightmare when she wakes up beside the body of her dead husband. Nauseous and confused, feeling as if she's been drugged, she can't explain to the sheriff why her princess costume is bloodied. With her father already a convicted murderer, she feels invisible shackles ratcheting onto her wrists and ankles. She runs! But she can't escape vivid flashes of memory: a massacre in a meadow; men and women in fairytale costumes; Snow White's dead body shielding her from bullets.
Though Chessa is a former costumer and adept at disguise, she quickly learns that hiding while trying to prove herself innocent is the most difficult task imaginable. Especially when the sheriff wants to throw her in jail and the real killer wants to silence her forever.
Girl on the Run by Daryl Wood Gerber is a suspenseful thrill ride that kept me up past my bed time. Chessa wakes up to find herself in a nightmare: her husband is dead, she’s a suspect, and she has a feeling she’s being framed. She does the only thing she can think to do: run. Chessa believes her father was framed for a murder when she was a child, and she’s terrified of the same fate. She realizes her husband isn’t who he seemed to be…she doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn…but she knows that she is the only one who can prove her innocence.
I didn’t want to put this one down. Ms. Gerber is known for her best selling cozy mysteries. With Girl on the Run, she has deftly mastered the thriller/suspense genre. I was enthralled with the family drama, the crazy connections, and the plot twists and turns. If you like a thrilling read, where you turn pages because you have to know what is going to happen next, then I wholeheartedly recommend Girl on the Run by Daryl Wood Gerber. It’s a must read if you enjoy the thriller/suspense genre. I cannot wait to read another story in this genre from Daryl Wood Gerber.
