Release Date: June 17th 2013
Happy to be Spotlighting See How She Runs today, I just read it recently and I have to say I cannot wait to read the next two books in the Chronicles of Izzy(the third of which just came out!). So, here’s some more about the book including a teaser excerpt full of that sarcastic edge I loved about the book, a little author bio, and a giveaway for a chance to win e-book copies of all three books! 
About the Book:
One delivery changed her whole life. 

Izzy was a normal girl living in Chicago as a bike messenger before that fateful day. She delivered one package and set into action a chain of events she never could have expected. 

Now she is running for her life from the Corporation, her best friend is not at all who he seemed, and to top it all off she keeps having visions.

Will she survive to navigate the waters as a Seer? Will her feelings for Kennan be her very downfall? Find out in See How She Runs.

Teaser:
“Oh mighty K.O., purveyor of delicious baked treats, I apologize profusely for my inability to comprehend the extent of your street cred. Please forgive me, and maybe ice that cake as a show of your forgiveness?” I smiled hugely, hoping that I didn’t look too desperate for the cake.
“Your giant eyes of sadness don’t fool me woman, you just want the cake. I’ve lived with you long enough to know better than to deny you baked goods.”
My Thoughts:
4.5 of 5 Stars
I was so ready to read this from the moment I read the synopsis, and it does not do it justice. I love some humor in  a book, no matter what it’s about I want it at times to make me laugh. For example, The Fault in Our Stars made me cry my eyes out, but it still made me laugh some too. So, I was happy to find that See How She Runs has lots of sarcasm/snark mixed right on in as I felt like it made the characters more real to me. So, for starters, that was one of my favorite parts of the book.
I love the pace that this book took on, it all seemed to flow together really well which, of course, sweeps you into the book so much more. The characters were pretty much all, for lack of a better word, awesome. I found myself so lost in Izzy’s world that sometimes I had to remind myself to come up for air… and laundry. Darn laundry. I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for something a little bit different than your run of the mill paranormal book since it’s been a long time since I’ve read something with a seer in it, so it was like a breath of fresh for me. I love the fact that Izzy was seriously an awesome heroine, love when authors make their female characters independent! Oh, and there’s one more reason for you to read this book– Kennan. Just… yeah, that’s all I have to say. You will so fall in love with that dude. So, if you’re looking for your next world to get swept into, I highly recommend you jump head first into this one.
 At the time I’m writing this post(5/5/14) See How She Runs is currently free on Amazon so what have you got to lose?
*I received this book for review from the author, but this in no way affected my thoughts as expressed in this review.*
About the Author:

Michelle Graves is a self-proclaimed nomad, moving every two to three years with her husband the Army man, her beautiful daughter, and a fat, tailless cat named Torri. When she is not writing away trying to purge her mind of yapping characters she can be found entertaining her daughter, attempting to craft (whilst trying not to injure herself with the glue gun), baking yummy treats, or reading. She admits to having a restless spirit and forces her family to go out on adventures whenever possible. They lovingly play along.
