Fitting Finale. This was a fitting finale to the Brighthead Running Club, and while I’m sad to see the series go, Evans truly did a great job wrapping up all outstanding plotlines and giving each couple a fitting end. Read the rest of the series first, and you’ll know what to expect from the overall tone and pacing of this story. Truly great work. Very much recommended.
Righteous Rage, Really? I thought Cashman was like me – after all, dude is an acerbic computer geek! – but this book actually introduced a character even more like me in Lucas, even as we don’t actually share a profession. And the problems Lucas and Shelly have are very similar to some of the fights I’ve had with my own wife, particularly when I get lost in some new challenge. (Such as reading 200 or maybe 208 books this year. Thanks, Number 170! 🙂 )So this book hit a bit closer to home to me than even Book 3 (Mischief and a Marathon, Cashman and Julie’s story). But overall this is a solid continuation of the overall series, though it does feel like some early characters are as much wallflowers as some central characters here were in their books. Still, a truly remarkable series and one that I am eagerly awaiting the next book in. Very much recommended.
Mischief And Mirth. In this continuation of Evans’ Brighthead Running Club series, we get the story we have been waiting on for a couple of books now – Julie and Cashman. And we learn some very startling things about Cashman throughout, but some of the biggest surprises are right up front… Excellent book, and one that can serve as an introduction to the series with only minimal spoilers at all. Very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
