Girl on the Run by Jane Costello
  

Lovereading view...

The sparkling new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author: a story of one woman's life-changing (but never straightforward) attempt to get fit. Funny, well observed, heartwarming but never sickly we always look forward to the latest Jane Costello in the Lovereading office. Single Abby, Managing Director of her own web design company meets a handsome Dr on a blind date set up by a friend. Smitten, as she is, she joins his running club and that is where the troubles start, well they started with the junk food and one too many Chardonnays….will the course of true love RUN smoothly?

If you like Jane Costello you might also like to read books by Sophie Kinsella, Maria Beaumont and Carole Matthews.

Synopsis

Girl on the Run by Jane Costello

He's a real catch ...if only she could catch him up Abby Rogers has been on health kicks before - they involve eating one blueberry muffin for breakfast instead of two. But since starting her own business, after watching one too many episodes of The Apprentice, the 28-year-old's waistline has taken even more of a back seat than her long-neglected love life. When Abby is encouraged to join her sporty best friend's running club - by none other than its gorgeous new captain - she finds a mysterious compulsion to exercise. Sadly, her first session doesn't go to plan. Between the obscenely unflattering pink leggings, and the fact that her lungs feel as though they've been set on fire, she vows never to return. Then her colleague Heidi turns up at work and makes a devastating announcement, one that will change her life - and Abby's - forever.
