Audio Book Review: Two Reasons to Run by Colleen Coble

Two Reasons to Run is a great addition to the Pelican Harbor series. It is book two in the series and I highly recommend that, for this series, each book be read in order, or you will miss out on important details regarding the backgrounds of the two main characters, Jane and Reid. Each book has its own mystery that must be solved and the plot in each book is wrapped up nicely, however, Jane and Reid’s story is ongoing throughout the series.

I am simply loving the Pelican Harbor books! I read the first book, One Little Lie, and I listened to the second book, Two Reasons to Run. The audio narration for Two Reasons to Run was very nicely done. There were slight variations in voice for certain characters to help the listener know who was speaking. This audio book definitely kept me listening, as I tried to figure out who the villain was!

Will, the teenager in the story, frustrated me a bit in this plot. He just did not seem to “get” that he was in danger. I guess he had some growing up to do emotionally. He did eventually realize that the danger was real and ended up making some very good decisions. He was still a character that I really liked and I was happy with how everything resolved.

I have loved the dynamic between Reid and Jane ever since book one. They continued to have wonderfully complicated emotions toward each other in this book. I am really looking forward to book three!

The second book in a gripping new series from USA TODAY bestselling romantic suspense author Colleen Coble.

Lies have rocked Jane Hardy’s world. And now that her son is being targeted, she’s got at least two reasons to run.

Jane Hardy’s life has been utterly disrupted. Almost immediately after taking over as Chief of Police for Pelican Harbor, her department was rocked by scandal. For the first time in her adult life, Jane thought she was falling in love . . . until she discovered that Reid Bechtol had been hiding the truth about who he really was. And if that wasn’t enough, she learned that her father had been lying to her for the last fifteen years and that her son wasn’t really dead.

The silver lining is that her son, Will, is back in her life and she’s building a relationship with him for the first time.

When Reid embarks on filming a new documentary about the oil platforms in Mobile Bay, someone begins threatening Will to get Reid to stop his investigation. His informant’s body is found lashed to one of the supports under the platform, and Jane has to help Reid find out who is targeting him if she wants to make sure her son survives as well.

His deception and the current danger give Jane plenty of reasons to run from Reid. But are there more reasons to stay?
