is a sequel to my first novel, Hearts At Risk.  It is the second book in the Trilogy of theThompson family at Thompson Land and Cattle Company in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Shauna Lee Holt, Colt Thompson’s former fiancée, has taken center stage in

“you can run…..

     Shauna Lee Holt is an intelligent, successful, outgoing business woman; a workaholic who owns Swift Current Accounting and Bookkeeping Services in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada.

But her professional persona is not reflected in her personal life which is lonely, closed and sterile.  She has no intimate relationships: no family and no friends.  Life has taught her that intimacy and commitment bring loss and pain: but she still craves companionship and human touch.  She assuages her loneliness with the “company” that she brings home on the weekends; men who live for the moment and want no lingering ties.

Then Brad Johnson comes into Shauna Lee’s life.  He is not like the men she is used to.  He sees beyond the surface.  He wants what she is certain she cannot give him; love and intimacy.

She has secrets; deeply hidden, painful secrets.  She clings desperately to the safety of anonymity: she is afraid to let anyone breach the walls of the facade she has built.  She is living a lie to protect herself.  She can run….

But can she hide?

“you can run…. continues to follow the lives of Colt and Frankie Thompson as their lives intertwine with Brad and Shauna Lee.  Frankie and Colt seem to have everything.  Their family grows; their relationship deepens.  After the birth of their twins and three years of marriage they are still discovering new things about each other; however, during the journey they have to face the fact that even wonderfully happy relationships are sometimes subject to painful adjustments that come with the ebbs and flows of life.

This is a story of second chances and unconditional love; a tale of secrets, lies, tormented lives, rage and murder.
