See How She Runs by Michelle Graves
Mary-Ann's rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I decided not read the book synopsis beforehand as I wanted a surprise.
When I first started reading I thought the story was classic 'sexy billionaire CEO falls for lowly bike courier....' I didn't mind, as within a couple of pages I felt a connection to Izzy the main character, her sense humour and use of "Granny" phrases felt as if I was reading a letter or journal entry of a close friend. So it came as a bit of a surprise to discover the story was paranormal and that Izzy was a seer. Kennan her Guardian is not the stereotypical arrogant Alpha male, which made for a pleasant change.
I loved when Izzy realises that there are high expectations regarding her abilities. She has an inner monologue "The heroine should at least have some perk. Maybe a bat cave or shiny weapons. Instead I get the wilderness and a Bipolar Sensei" I laughed out loud at this turn of phrase.
There was a part of the book where I had similar feelings to watching a horror movie when I felt like shouting at Izzy not to be a dumb female and go it alone in the name of saving those that she loved, But it all turned out well in the end. There was no cliffhanger but was set up nicely for a sequel. I am looking forward to continuing the journey with Izzy and Kennan in future books. I also want to read Ian and Molly's story as they were supporting characters in this book, but both had strong characters and quirkiness that made me want to know more.
