    A great read.

    Wow! This tender story – not to mention very steamy! – is a great read. I’m encouraged to take up running again… *Grin*. I love how the bookstore returned along with the small town and familiar cast from book 1. Maxie is, of course, my favourite character. Lots of tension, working out what dreams truly are, and great worldbuilding. BTW, I received an ARC from the other and this is my honest opinion. Another great book by Sadira Stone. I recommend this to everyone who loves romance, books, running and real-world relationships.

    Sweet love between two caring persons.

    Sadira Stone, ‘Runaway Love Story’. The Book Nirvana Two. As a Hidden Gems ARC reader I received a free copy and promised an honest review. Here it is. Rating: 3,5 stars (of 5). In general: Sweet love between two caring persons. Main characters: - Laurel Jepsen (31). Born and raised in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Her parents didn’t like her artistic ambitions (“Not practical”), but with the help of her great aunt Maxie (now 90), she could succeed in her Art studies and find a job in a trendy Portland art gallery. But she was fired and had to return home. Her parents emphatically ask her to go to Eugene and care for her great aunt for a time because she shows the first dementia signs. Laurel loves aunt Maxie and agrees. In Eugene she also takes a job in a cosy, tasteful bookshop annex coffee shop. But she keeps dreaming about an art job in a big city like Portland or San Francisco. - Doug Garvey (39). Cross country coach and History teacher on a High School in Eugene. He just divorced from his wife Tiffany, who expected more ambition and wealth from a husband. Doug’s mom is suffering from Alzheimer too. So he wants to stay in Eugene and care for his mom. The author, Sadira Stone, describes with insight and a lot of feeling how Laurel and Doug care for their old relatives and how sad and cruel Alzheimer is for patient and family. In addition she writes a sweet love story about the deepening relationship between Doug and Laurel. For me this story - especially in the end - was a bit slow: when Doug expressed his love for her, Laurel has her doubts and when Laurel wants commitment, Doug hesitates or cannot overcome his anger or wounded pride that Laurel had her doubts. And so on. All in all: a nice novel with wonderful (additional) characters and a lot interesting info about art, running, teaching and life in a medium-sized city on the West Coast.
