Release day: Run Rabbit Run
Today is the official release of Run Rabbit Run by Kate Johnson (paperback, Choc Lit). Here’s the blurb:
Sophie Green’s an ex-spy, or trying to be. You wouldn’t believe the trouble she’s in. An MI5 officer has been shot with her gun, her fingerprints all over his office. And no, she didn’t kill him.
But she has gone on the run.
Now Sophie’s desperately seeking whoever’s trying to frame and kill her. She’s being forced to work with the least trustworthy man in Europe, MI5 is following her every move, and she’s had to leave the tall, blond, god of a man she loves behind.
Luke Sharpe works for MI6. Or did, until his girlfriend became a murder suspect.
Doing nothing wasn’t an option, so he started investigating. Who cares if it means jeopardising his career? Sophie’s everything he used to say he never wanted. Young, irresponsible, bright and mad. Now she’s just everything – and she has to live.
She will live, won’t she?
Kate dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
The thing about writing spies is that they can be whatever you want them to be. That’s the great thing about such a secretive organisation: I can take pretty much my own view of it. Which is where Sophie Green comes in. In reality, MI6 would run a mile from her. Her only apparent skills involve talking a lot and being able to run in heels. But what she lacks in weapons training and linguistic expertise, she makes up for with brains and tenacity. Then there’s Luke Sharpe. Luke is ex-SAS, and he’s very well-connected, and almost emotionless, which makes him a much more likely candidate for the Service. In fact he’s a perfect spy. So what we have in Run Rabbit Run is the collision of a perfect spy who never lets personal feelings interrupt his life, and a whirlwind of chaos with blonde hair who is pretty much his diametric opposite. Luke is suddenly ruled by his feelings, and Sophie has to take care of herself in a big wide world that suddenly contains a lot of enemies. I had a blast writing about their misadventures. I hope you have just as much fun with it.
