HASH(0xa16003e4) out of 5 stars This is a reprint!!! July 29 2010
By DogLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was originally printed titled "Wishes" - this was a total cheat to rename an older book and sell it as a new publication - the book is great but the rename-reprint seems truly unfair.

HASH(0xa18f439c) out of 5 stars "Running Scared" Feb. 9 2011
By Stars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Kate Summers lost her husband and baby girl in a hit-and-run accident. She had been working for a shady law firm in Boston, but decided to relocate to Seattle to shake the painful memories of her losses. On her last day of work at the law office, her boss Tyrell Clark asked Kate to work overtime so that he could discuss an important matter with her. Tyrell was a brilliant attorney and Kate wanted to hear what was on his mind.

Tyrell Clark offered Kate a newborn boy to take with her to Seattle, to keep as her own child with no questions asked. Tyrell explained that a socially prominent client's daughter gave birth out of wedlock and the family wanted to keep the matter a secret, so adoption was out of the question. The one stipulation was that Kate and the baby get lost out West. Tyrell used his connections to have a phony birth certificate made. Kate readily accepted the offer.

Robert Sullivan III has one daughter named Beatrice and nicknamed Bibi. His only son Stuart died in an accident when he was a teenager. When Beatrice got pregnant, she told her father that a sailor fathered her child, then left town. She didn't want the baby, which was given up to a phony adoption. Beatrice did not want her father to know that she had sex with her first cousin, Uncle Frank's illegitimate son whom the family had ostracized.

Fifteen years later, Bibi flew to Montana to tell her first cousin Daegan O'Rourke that she got pregnant the night they both got drunk and had sex and that she gave the baby up for adoption to keep her father from learning of the incest. It was important to inform Deagan, because her father had hired a sleazy private detective to find her son. Bibi wants Deagan to find their son before the detective does.

The Sullivan's are the wealthiest family in Boston, Massachusetts, being from old money and lots of dirty secrets to go with the wealth. They have tried their best to cover up their messes. Robert Sullivan III is the head of the family empire. His brother Frank is the youngest brother. The eldest brother had died, leaving Robert in charge of the money in the family. Frank had an illegitimate son, Daegan O'Rourke, with his mistress but does not recognize Daegan as a blood relative. Everything was going fine, until Robert discovered that he has cancer. Now, Robert decided that he wanted to find his grandson and bring him home to accept his rightful place in the Sullivan fold where he would gain control of the Sullivan finances. Robert intends to exclude Frank and his family from control of Sullivan assets. Robert and Frank have an old rivalry that will not end with Robert's death.

Running Scared was originally titled Wishes. Lisa Jackson was asked to rewrite it to a level of suspense. I did not read Wishes. I found Running Scared suspenseful with unexpected twists and turns. An unexpected shocking revelation in the end took me completely by surprise.

I recommend Running Scared By Lisa Jackson.

HASH(0xa1b01b04) out of 5 stars Should have mentioned that this is a re-write of another book Aug. 3 2010
By Antoinette E. Smith - Published on Amazon.com

Re-release of older book. It may be out of print but I remember the story. It should have been listed as a re-print with lots of added descriptions and details not told before.

HASH(0xa1b01fcc) out of 5 stars Okay if you are into crime stories with romance Oct. 7 2010
By K. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am more into Stephen White, Lisa Gardener, tess gerritson, etc. This was my first Lisa Jackson Novel and I wasn't too happy with it. I usually read all of my books within hours, start to finish. I downloaded this on my kindle and in three days, I have yet to finish it. I am somewhat bored with the storyline and at times it gets predictable...If you like the authors i listed above, this is not the book you want to get.

HASH(0xa1604660) out of 5 stars Great suspense read Sept. 2 2010
By Mystery Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I didn't know this was a reprint of an earlier title, but I hadn't read it before, so that fact didn't make any difference. I've read most of Lisa Jackson's more recent books, and most of them are very dark. I actually enjoyed the fact that this one wasn't, and that the characters were more developed than those in the later books. Since the plot has already been described in another review, I won't restate it. I'll just say that the book had an entertaining plot, the right amount of suspense, and nicely developed relationships with Dagan, Kate, and Jon. (And, thank goodness, not a serial killer anywhere.) I thought it was a great read and recommend it.
