Girl on the Run by Daryl Wood Gerber
Published By:
Chucklin, Inc.
Publication Date: April 7, 2016
Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Suspense

What drew me to this book was the setting. A fairytale ball and a murder mystery that takes place at Lake Tahoe, a place I absolutely love. Chessa wakes up to find her husband murdered and all the evidence points to her as the killer. She can barely remember what happened the night before, which leads her to believe that she was drugged. Her father is in jail for murder and she is terrified that she will suffer the same fate. So she runs!

Chessa is determined to prove her innocence before the police or the real killer can catch her. With the cops on her tail and nowhere safe to turn, Chessa has to solve the mystery and stay one step ahead. I loved the action, including boat and motorcycle chases around Lake Tahoe. Being familiar with the area, it was a lot of fun to read this book and recall all the places mentioned that I have had the pleasure of visiting.
Chessa is intelligent and constantly on her toes. She's also very skilled at creating costumes. She helped many of her friends create their fairytale costumes for the ball. She has the ability to quickly switch disguises and blend in with ease. She is a strong, capable character who doesn't back down. This story is fast paced and the ending was great! I'm looking forward to this author's next suspense.

Thank you Netgalley and Chucklin, Inc. for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. 

Loved it!
