Book Review

Run to Me by Diane Hester

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A motherless Child. A childless mother. A killer willing to sacrifice them both. Run to Me is the exciting debut from Port Lincoln (South Australian) author Diane Hester. Originally from New York City, Hester manages to bring her passion for Northern Maine to life in this thriller with heart.

Suspense Fiction Run to Me by Diane HesterWhen ten-year-old Zack Ballinger and his foster brothers witness a crime, the boys must escape into the wilds of Northern Maine. With only his street-smarts to rely on, and the killers closing in, Zack has no choice but to turn to Shyler O’Neil, a reclusive woman still traumatised by the tragic death of her young son. The question soon becomes not just will Zack and Shyler escape the killer, but is she Zack’s rescuer or greatest threat.

Run to Me is so much more than an edge-of-your-seat chase through the beautiful and perilous landscape. The characters are drawn with sensitivity and the deft hand of a true story teller. This is not a novel for those who prefer their thrillers filled with political intrigue, high-tech weaponry and explosions. Run to Me unashamedly plucks at the heart strings while keeping them vibrating with tension. Be prepared to give up a day to reading because this is a true page-turner that left me wanting more from this talented writer.
