Title: The Runaway (Bane Island #1)
Author: Lisa Childs
Stars: 2 1\2
Lisa Childs story The Runaway is a mess from the different points of view to the romance that doesn't make since. The story feels forced as do the characters in the different scenes. The story lacks a natural flow the authors has shown many times before. The synopsis and the story do not match leaving readers wondering what are they reading?
The book lacked any flow that would keep readers wanting to finish the story. As a reader I struggled to finish the story that seem to stall out and end with a unexpected twist.
Thank you to Netgalley for the advance copy of Lisa Childs The Runaway.
Rosemary Tulle has come to Halcyon Hall desperate to find her younger sister. Seventeen-year-old Genevieve left a brief, troubling message on Rosemary's phone, begging to be picked up. But Rosemary is not on the visitor list, and no one will let her in . . .
Halcyon Hall was once Bainesworth Manor, an asylum for the insane. Such places often draw whispers about gruesome treatments and tortured inmates. In the case of Bainesworth, the reality may have been far worse. Now, staff insist that Genevieve ran away, but Rosemary's instincts say otherwise. Rosemary and Genevieve share an unsual bond, and she knows Genevieve wouldn't have just left. Compelled to turn for help to a man she hoped never to see again, judge Whit Lawrence, she tries to learn the truth about Genevieve. But it will mean uncovering secrets about Bainsworth Manor, and about Rosemary's own dark past--secrets with the power to kill . .
