Book Review

Reviewed by Molly E. for Readers Favorite

Ms. Antypowich is a new author to me. This is her second book in her ‘Thompson Family Trilogy’ and is written in an incredibly amazing manner. I was captured completely, from start to finish, and by the end of the book, I was left with a whirlwind of jaw-dropping emotions and a pounding heart. This is the second book in her trilogy, but the first that I have read. Although I hadn’t read the first, I was not overly confused to the point of disappointment. “You Can Run” takes the reader on a journey of turmoil, heartache, romance, and devotion. Shauna Lee is a woman filled with pain. She has secrets from her past that she is keeping buried deep inside her. She lets no one into her heart, and to fulfill any lonely time, she seeks men who are not willing to commit. Then she meets Brad Johnson. Brad Johnson is a man who knows what he wants and he wants Shauna Lee. From the minute he sets eyes on her, he knows he wants to commit to her and only her. But, something is wrong in her heart. She is not opening up to him. She is keeping something from her past deeply hidden and she won’t reveal her secrets to him. But, he is determined to win her trust and show her that she can take the ultimate risk and fall in love with him.

As the lives of Brad and Shauna Lee collide, the reader is swept into a dramatic journey of hope, understanding, lies and love. The roller coaster ride that Ms. Antypowich takes us on in this book is breathtaking. Each page brings something new to the story and creates a vivid description of heart-wrenching love. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who is looking for a book that is well-developed, has complex and believable characters, and will instantly tug you in. It is not for the faint of heart though. There are things among the pages of the book that will leave you near tears at times. But, ultimately, you will see that you can’t always run from something that is meant to be. Amazingly done, Ms. Antypowich!
