Publisher's Summary

Simone Beaumont is having a rough day. She is exhausted. Her baby is crying non-stop. She is in a fight with her husband and hasn't spoken to him since last night. A big part of her want to just leave everything, to run away from it all - to vanish. She is considering it while putting her screaming baby in her car seat when suddenly she meets a man in the parking lot who, without asking her, makes her wish come true.

Emma Frost has just come home from a trip to Eastern Europe when the body of Simone Beaumont is found. It turns out she was part of Sophia's mothers' group, and soon the small group is shaken by yet another disappearance.

Run, Run as Fast as You Can is a spine-chilling Scandinavian mystery. It is the third book in Willow Rose's best-selling Emma Frost series.

Fast paced, gory mystery with great characters

I liked this book the best of the Emma Frost series, although it was quite over the top. It felt more tongue-in-cheek than the 2 previous books. I particularly loved how the author shifts viewpoints between the different characters, the love obsessed Thomas, OCD Lisa, the different Moms in the group and Emma herself. The depiction of the stalker and of Lisa's OCD are outstanding, as is the description of Emma's son, who has a high functioning autism spectrum disorder. I did think the "psychic" autistic was a bit tired, but having said that, the story was very fast paced and engaging, and the end, while satisfying, seemed to leave plenty of room for the next installment. I wasn't crazy about the narrator. Her style of reading detracted from the story rather than enhanced, it in my opinion. Still I would recommend this audiobook for anyone who wants a light, but gory murder mystery, which is character driven. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Good Read

Run Run as Fast as You Can (Emma Frost #3) was a great read by Willow Rose. Simone Beaumont is having a rough day and is exhausted. She is in a fight with her husband and her baby is crying non-stop. While putting her baby in her car seat she is thinking of just vanishing when a man meets her in the parking lot. Emma was on a trip to Eastern Europe and when she returned the body of Simone is found. She was a part of Sophia's mothers' group and they start slowly disappearing. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by Willow Rose.

Juvenile writing and narration

I'm trying to get through this series because I have the books but I find the writing juvenile. The narrator sounds like she's speaking to small children.
The combination is completely annoying.

Run Run as Fast as you Can

This is the 3rd book in the Emma Frost series and I think the best so far. It has a chilling ending, but the story was good. The narration was good.

Good

Okay, this was fun but a bit over the top *laughs* There must be something in the water from that little island that makes people nuts!

What I liked was that we didn't get the main killer's motivation until the very end. We knew that, whatever was that sent him finally over the edge, it was most certainly related to the woman he was stalking in the past. But in which way? that was the mystery.

Now, Simone... she is something else entirely *laughs*

It is entertaining, but I didn't like it as much as the first.

Now, Sarah Feenah's narration wasn't the best. The voices lacked consistency, and sometimes they sounded almost caricaturesque.

Unfortunate dislike

Sophomoric story and weak lead character combined with a reading style and voice that i finding grating, prompted me to jettison the book. I have better options.

Awful

Has Run Run as Fast as You Can turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What didn’t you like about Sarah Feenah’s performance?

It was awful. It was very amateurish, like a child reading a book to Grandma. The inflections were all wrong. Questions were read as though they were statements - statements were often read like questions. In almost all cases, it was not read as it would have been spoken. Perhaps less importantly, this book is set in Denmark - would it be too much to ask that the narrated English might have the slightest bit of Scandinavian accent? Just a very tiny bit? I will hopefully never read another book narrated by this reader.

Any additional comments?

Too many crazies. One crazy killer should be sufficient for an book. Silly story. I would not buy another book by this author.
