My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ll start off by saying I didn’t read all the other books in this series. Although I could tell there were returning characters with implied back story, it didn’t diminish my enjoyment.
The fictional Seattle Chinook NHL team makes a fun backdrop for the tale of a Reality TV winner who runs away on her wedding day.
In a spectacular scene, the bride in a puffy white gown dashes onto a seaplane already occupied by a hockey player on his way to see his mother. Sparks and repartee fly.
Characters are writ preposterously big. The heroine isn’t just a Reality TV winner, she’s also the daughter of the Chinook coach and a business woman promoting her clothing line for dogs. Yes, really.
The hockey player’s mother is a mass of hypochondria for humor, but good writing elicits an undercurrent of sympathy for the hero who grew up in that household.
Ridiculous but fun, the story never slows down.
The Art of Running in Heels is well written, humorous, harmless and engaging, which is often all I ask a romance to be.
