The Rockwell Legacy #4
By Jennifer Bernard
Releasing March 5th, 2019
He knew she’d be nothing but trouble…
The moment she drifted into his marina, Mark Castellani knew Gracie was different. Resisting the blond pixie’s breezy approach to life is difficult, but Mark’s had years of practice living for simple pleasures that don’t extend beyond the next sunrise. Why long for anything lasting when he knows how quickly his whole world can be flipped upside down?
A bombshell long-lost memory finally explains why Gracie Rockwell never quite fit in with her boisterous family—she isn’t a Rockwell, after all. Desperate for answers, she leaves her beloved Rocky Peak Lodge in search of the little boy who saved her so long ago. Did he grow up to be the gorgeous-but-guarded Mark Castellani? What does he know about her true origins? If only she could pry some answers from her enigmatic new boss—and get rid of her massive crush.
But while she’s eager to uncover the past, he’d rather bury it forever. Mark was right—Gracie is the kind of trouble he never wanted. But she’s exactly the trouble he needs.

In The Runaway (Rockwell Legacy #4) by Jennifer Bernard, Gracie Rockwell wants answers after she discovers that she was adopted. Tracking down Mark Castellani was easy, but opening up to him about their shared past isn't so simple. However, once Mark helps her piece together some of the past, she decides she needs to pursue it further. Will Gracie learn the truth about the past or will her determination to get to the bottom of who her birth parents are put her in danger?
This is the first book I've read of this series and it's a story I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end due to the fantastic main characters that go through a lot to be together and have interesting back stories where they share quite the harrowing past; and compelling dialogue that drew me in from the very beginning and had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether the heroine would learn what she wants to know.
With the main characters, the heroine is quirky, resilient, courageous, has a great family in her adopted father and siblings; and I liked how much of a challenge she provided the hero. Really, she made this story fun and had me smiling because of her quirkiness while at the same time having enough other emotion to have me sympathizing with the pair due to all that they've been through in their pasts and deal with throughout this story. While the hero, he's worked hard to move on from the past, but what happened to him isn't something he could ever forget. He's just lucky he had someone to help him through the hard times since his parents didn't handle what happened to him all that well. Still, the hero is resilient, kind, caring and I liked how protective he was of the heroine the closer they came to learning the truth about the heroine's past.
Overall, Ms. Bernard has delivered a fantastic read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong and convincing; the romance was nicely-detailed and full of heat and passion; and the ending had me concerned for the main characters because of all that happens, but had me loving the hero's determination to win Grace back after their relationship goes awry. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely and had me looking forward to the next book of the series. I would recommend The Runaway by Jennifer Bernard, if you enjoy contemporary romance with a dose of suspense; the mysterious strangers trope; or books by authors Kimberly Kincaid, Kate Meader, Avery Flynn and Erin Nicholas.
