RUNNING SCARED (4) by Shirlee McCoy: Reuniting a 9-year-old boy with the father he was stolen from five years ago was the right thing to do, even if it put teacher’s aide Maggie Tennyson’s life in peril. Knowing that the man she once loved will kill her if he finds her, Maggie isn’t pleased when the boy’s father, Kane Dougherty, hunts her down to thank her. Kane, a P.I., knows Maggie is running from something and is determined to discover what that is. His son’s attachment to her gives him the excuse to keep in touch, and his own growing affection has him longing to keep her safe. McCoy’s story has a strong sense of suspense and plenty of action packed into a short time frame.
