Clara Saint-James is completing a journey started by an old friend. She'll return a Cadillac to California, a place she's avoided for more than a decade. But it's time for closure and to put old ghosts to rest. And it's time to find out if the feelings she's cherished for the boy from her past are just fanciful memories--or if there's a chance they are real.
Timing was never on her side, especially when it came to Karson Avery. The two of them lived in a junkyard as runaway teens, and though she wanted more than his friendship, he always belonged to another--until that one night when he was hers.
When Clara finds Karson living in a small, coastal town, she's not surprised the beautiful boy from her past grew into a stunning man. His smile is as captivating as ever. His eyes have the same roguish glint. But timing is still working against her.
Clara must decide how far she's willing to go to battle for Karson's heart. Or if it's time to let him go and surrender to the dotted lines that have always kept them apart.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
One last ride in the Cadillac... I have been invested in this series since it started and Devney Perry didn't let me down with the finale one bit.
I adored Clara. Her survival instinct. Her protectiveness where August was concerned. Her nerves to see Karson again. I loved getting her backstory. I felt it. The emotions that were too big to name for a teenager. The hope when there had been none for so long. The promise of a brighter future.
And could there be a swoonier guy than Karson? I loved how when he saw Clara he was stunned silent. He didn't know what to do with the surprise of seeing her. How to move forward as he was trying to let her go. The way he embraced and indulged Gus melted my heart. And when they took a literal trip to memory lane, it brought all those feelings from long ago back to the forefront. Too bad there was life waiting for them...
Clara and Karon's emotionally charged second chance at love and family was tender, full of longing and so much love. And while it is always bittersweet to come to the end of a series you love, the way Devney Perry wrapped up the Runaway series, with heart and lots of emotion (and the epilogue) had me wanting to jump in the car and hit the road.
