Book Review: Run Away Charlotte

Run Away Charlotte

Trusting and depending on others has never suited nineteen-year-old Charlotte Cooper, who believes she’s unworthy of a happily ever after. She’s fiercely loyal to one – her BFF Joe. Afterall, Joe’s the only one who knows everything about Charlotte and he’s sworn to protect her heart, and her deep dark secrets.

Until Andrew Wagner walks into her life.

When it comes to matters of the heart and mind, which direction do you follow? Love or Logic?

Run Away Charlotte is the precursor to Ask Me Again, which I received from the author in exchange for a review, and I loved it so much that I bought this one.

It was interesting to see how Charlotte and Andrew came to meet and be together, and how much they meant to each other. You could definitely tell they were in love from the start in Ask Me Again but I got to see every little detail that was alluded to in it. Having read the previous book I couldn’t help shouting “No, no, stay away from Jack!” the first time they met.

While this book was really good, I feel like the author hit her stride with the second book. I could tell that she learned a lot more about pacing by that time, and there were parts in Run Away Charlotte where the pace lagged. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, just that I felt that Ask Me Again had worked out some of the kinks.

That being said, when there was excitement or something big happening to Charlotte (so much happened to poor Charlotte!), the pages seemed to turn themselves and I had a hard time putting it down.

I highly recommend both of H.M. Shander’s books. While you don’t have to have read this one to understand and follow the second, I do recommend you read them in order so you can fully appreciate Andrew and Charlotte’s love.
