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.

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