Runaway Love

Paris and Pam are twins that grew up a group home in Mercy , Georgia . Although identical, the sisters were as different as night and day. Paris, the quiet one, always believed in doing the right thing, while Pam, the loud one, had a reputation for being the fast one.

Eventually, Pam left Mercy, vowing to never return. Unfortunately, that vow is broken as she must go back to bury her twin. While she's there to be a support system, she's also hoping to get things done and get away bef

Ever heard the saying, "You think you know but you have no idea?" Without a doubt Terra Little's book follows this premise...Paris reluctantly returns to the small town of Mercy when her sister passes away. Once there both Paris and the reader are in for some suprises they didn't expect...Paris learns information about her past she never knew, the lives of Paris' neice and her brother in law are changed forever, and a stranger is lurking in the background who is so determined to have fame he wil ...more

This was an interesting book. It took me a minute, but I finally got into it. It was a good story. Poor Pamela Hayes went thru so much. It was cruel what Paris did to her, but I am glad she forgave Paris and went on with her life. It was sad that it took Paris to die for all this truth to come out. I give this book 4 stars. Just finished on December 30th!!!!

It started off very slow but built up to a very satisfying read. I read her other two books first and the writing style differs greatly between Running From Mercy and the Where There's Smoke series even so author Terra Little really knows how to tell a story.

Recommends it for: Anyone who runs from problems
This book teaches you that no matter gow much you try to run from something it is always going to catch up to you. Pam tried to run away from her past until it finally caught up with her. Finally she faced her past and it made her present much easier and hopefully stay the same for the future.

This was a surprisingly good book. It first started out as kind of predictable, but quickly turned into a very engaging and interesting read. There was quite a twist at the end which I enjoyed, and overall I was pleased with the ending. It is a quick fun read.

I had the hardest time getting into this book. I found it very predictable and ended up skipping parts of it just to get to the end. I would not recommend.
