Smashwords book reviews by Danielle Thorne

  • Runner's High on Oct. 12, 2014

    A wonderful, light-hearted story, Runner's High is an original and sweet romantic tale featuring an interesting take on the May-December romance. Providing a fun plot line about the love of running, I learned a lot about how runners think. It's easy to feel the passion the author has for the sport; it's quite motivating. This setting creates a unique backdrop for widower Ted Stoddard and the beautiful, young Hillary, who are in a running club together and attend the same church. As their relationship progresses from friendship to romance, it's endearing to hear Ted's concerns about the age gap even as he treats her with the respect every woman of any age deserves. Larry Hammersley write clean, crisp dialogue you don't want to skim over. He has an admirable gift for using quaint expressions that drive imagery and description. An excellent, compelling short read, I look forward to reading more of this author's books. His inspirational story lines, gentlemanly voice, and passion for living in the moment will appeal to romantics (and runners!) of all ages.
