Running Into Trouble – Elle Spellman

Running Into Trouble - Elle SpellmanSynopsis: A funny, uplifting and surprising novel about female friendship, motherhood, love and loss, and getting through a whole marathon.

With little over twelve weeks until race day, three women are trying their hardest to focus on their ultimate goal – to run 26.2 miles.

For Hannah, it seems near impossible, her first attempt leaving her pained, sweaty and full of regret. But intent on winning back her husband, Hannah is determined to at least try.

Malika signed up to the race after finding a running medal of her friend Abbie’s, who died only a few weeks before. She once promised Abbie she would run a race with her, and she plans to keep that promise.

When an accident with an unruly dog brings Hannah and Malika together, they soon realise they’re training for the same race, and experienced runner Cassie offers to help them out. But running becomes the last thing on their minds when life gets in the way…

Running into Trouble is full of realism, humour and warmth. Centred on three main characters, Elle cleverly weaves the three storylines together, so that the reader gains insight into the challenges each one faces. There is a sense of reality in the way they prepare for the race and the book itself has real pace.

A charming and uplifting debut novel.
