Running From StrangerseBook - 2009
Child advocate Allie Hudson made some powerful enemies when she began calling for public oversight on police corruption. Barely escaping a vicious attack, she finds herself running for her life with Davy Lopez, a seven-year-old child in her care. Fleeing from unknown pursuers, she runs to the only man she can trust, a man whose name she's whispered into her pillow a thousand times. All she has to do is find him, then hope he'll forgive her for leaving him without a word twelve years before. In the past, Allie's free-spirited and impulsive behavior often had childhood sweetheart Beck Williams taking the blame and paying the consequences. Because he loved her, it was an arrangement that suited them both. Now a reclusive wildlife biologist and nature photographer living in the mountains of Colorado, Beck couldn't remember a day he hadn't thought of Allie since she mysteriously disappeared. When she shows up at his door-with someone else's child-he promises to do the right thing, but soon isn't sure what the right thing is. Because vengeful ex-cops aren't the only ones seeking retribution. Someone has set Davy Lopez in their sinister sights, sending Allie and Beck on a frantic race against time to save him. Running from Strangers is a fast-paced suspenseful search for the truth that sweeps the reader across the country to a secluded wild horse refuge and a trendy resort town in the Rocky Mountains. But there is no sanctuary from evil. Against the stunning backdrop of beautiful southwest Colorado, courageous and engaging characters bring this story of love and survival to a terrifying conclusion. With never a dull moment, the page-turning, twisty plot surges toward an unexpected, unforgettable climax.
