Although the sexual tension between the main characters is good, the love scenes didn't quite do it for me but they were well written and it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the book.
The only fails I could find in the book were some minor mistakes regarding plants in the scenery - nothing an author research visit to a local garden nursery would probably fix (Beginning of chapter 1: please note neither Jasmine nor Lantana are native flowers, in fact both are introduced here and Lantana is a stubborn invasive allergy causing pest species with thorns that threatens our native environment, and Beginning of Chapter 32: Frangipanni is not a brilliant purple colour - it comes in both white or peach with yellow centers - perhaps the author was thinking of Tibouchina?). Not a real big fail, but as I could visualizing the story in my head like a movie, it sort of threw me out at the time and distracted from the pace of the book.
The chase scene near the end over urban yards & streets was totally thrilling and I was holding my breath, and the heroine's later face to face fight with the psycho (not giving the plot away) was chilling. Actually, I think this book would make a great movie.
I did find it very funny and quirky.
The sex scenes had me flicking through to the next part of the story. Don't need fillers like that in my books. Too much information!

When Dominic St. James, a wealthy property developer in Sydney frantically rushed to the hospital to see his children, he was informed his ex-wife was yet to be found. And the woman with the children was the person who had saved them. His gratitude was immense; but Darcy didn’t want his help – or the publicity – she wanted nothing more than to leave the hospital and vanish once again. But that was not to be – so grudgingly she thought that perhaps within the safe confines of Dominic’s high security and protection, she would be safe.
But when Dominic learned the car crash hadn’t been an accident, the danger around them all intensified. The tension and stress hung over the household – the pressure mounted; the secrets and lies deepened. There was a maniac out there – one that was intent on doing lasting damage. Would they all be safe? Could Dominic trust Darcy; the woman he was beginning to care for? Could Darcy trust Dominic?
Runaway Lies is a brilliant psychological thriller by Aussie author Shannon Curtis. It is classed as romantic suspense, but it is much heavier on the suspense in my opinion. A fast paced story with an excellent plot, I found it difficult to put down. And the ending! Wow! I didn’t expect that! Such a great tale with many unexpected twists, this author knows how to entertain. Highly recommended.
