Running In The Dark – Sam Reaves

Running In The Dark – Sam Reaves


Leaving the crowds of Manhattan after a relationship goes sour and tragic events unfold, Abigail finds herself in the middle of small town Indiana, prepared to begin a collegiate teaching career in mathematics. She settles in to an apartment rented to her by the enigmatic Ned, and begins calculus instruction at the nearby university. While going out for a run one night, she witnesses a murder disguised as a car accident – and she notices a man in the woods watching, who smiles at her before he turns to walk deeper into the woods, unnerving her. Additionally, a student begins to make unwanted advances on Abby, leaving her very unsettled. As tensions mount, Abby attempts to assist the police in identifying the man she saw, additional deaths occur, Abby feels as if someone is watching, and she finds herself in the crosshairs of an unknown adversary…

I enjoyed this book, although it did seem to move a bit slow for me at times. The characters were engaging, the story was realistic and the ultimate perpetrator was a surprise to me, although in hindsight, I should have guessed who it would be. A good book for anyone looking for a mellow mystery/adventure read. I will be reading more from Sam Reaves in the future!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
