    One thought on “Running on Empty”

    1. I love this series. I have read every book, starting with Thicker Than Blood. This one has new characters that I cared about. And, of course, a dog. The idea of finding a sister on your doorstep was intriguing. Especially when you didn't know you even had a sister. That is the part of the story I liked the most, the relationship between the sisters.

    2. 4.5 stars. Was a little disappointed the characters from the previous books weren't in it much but I still really liked it!

    3. Title: Running on EmptyAuthor: C. J. DarlingtonPages: 348Year: 2015Publisher: Mountainview BooksMy rating is 5+ stars.C. J. Darlington just keeps getting better! I have read her other books Jupiter Winds, Thicker than Blood, Bound by Guilt, Ties that Bind and her newest Running on Empty. Each novel contains a story that will stir your blood, set your imagination running, and leave you wanting more of her stories. Running on Empty seems like a great candidate for a sequel because I would love to [...]

    4. Running on Empty is the fourth book in the Thicker than Blood series by CJ Darlington. While this book really can be read as a standalone I did take the time to read the first three books before I read it and was glad I did because they were all really good too!I think one of my favorite parts about this book were the examples of childlike faith. Little Callie in this book is so young but she finds a Bible for free and starts reading it and has a vague memory of a preacher and she begins to pray [...]

    5. Running on Empty kept me turning pages from the very beginning! Throughout the book, CJ weaves together the storylines of several characters from seemingly different walks of life. The book opens with the main character, Del, struggling to make ends meet after losing her job through no fault of her own. With unsympathetic landlords hounding her for late rent, a growling stomach, and a gas gauge on empty, Del needs to figure out something fast. But that night, young Callie shows up on her doorste [...]

    6. I enjoyed the story and read through it quickly because I was anxious to see how it ended. I love that Darlington keeps this series in the State of Colorado: I have only been there twice, but it is a beautiful state. And that the author includes horses in the story, even for just a bit, and a young woman who loves them made me happy as that was me when I was growing up. The reason for four instead of five stars, however, hinged upon the fact that, if I were not a Christian, I would be a bit conf [...]

    7. Excellent way to start the year - thoroughly enjoyed this story, and like so many in this series, I felt like it left a big open space at the end to continue Del and Callie's stories. Glad to see my favorite character Christy reappear. 4 out of 5 for a few plot holes at the end, but overall a great story that I would recommend to others. This story certainly can stand alone, but I think it is so much richer if you have read the first three books first so you know who Christy and Abby are, and ho [...]

    8. C.J. Darlington is one of my favorite authors. I've read all of her Thicker Than Blood books as soon as I find them, so when I saw there was a #4 in the series, I bought it right away and read it over the next couple of days. Once again Miss C.J. has created realistic characters who drew me into the story and made me want to find out what was going on with them. It amused me how well a young character was portrayed - even though I liked her, I found myself getting frustrated right along with the [...]

    9. Another great book in this seiesI have absolutely enjoyed the Thicker than Blood series and am disappointed I can't just jump into book 5. I read all of them back to back and enjoyed the development of so many characters. New characters were introduced in this one that could be expanded upon in another book so I really hope there will be Book #5.

    10. I hope this one gets a sequel, because it desperately needs one. Things were left hanging and (Spoiler alert!!!) the villains get away with everything. I found it rather disappointing compared to the others in the series.

    11. My least favorite of the series, especially as there was very little tie-in to the previous characters (frankly, this could have even been #2 or 3, there was that little detail). Premise with Natalie did not seem believable, and the ending didn't really tie things up.

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Right from the start it held my attention and never left to the end. I felt badly for the young woman's circumstances, all the trials while trying to survive. It was actually educational! And when she suddenly found out she had a sister with whom was now her responsibility, oh my goodness! I liked the personalities of the sisters, they seemed very realistic, not too perfect by a long shot. The non-stop adventures were excellently (is that even a word) written and [...]

    13. A life that is all roses is not what the Lord promises to those who believe in Him. The opposite is actually true. I guess this is what makes the stories in this series really good. It shows by example and very seldom quote verses from the bible.In this fourth book, sisters Del and Callie were brought together and have to face homelessness, hunger, and the threat of death. I wish it were longer!There will probably be a fifth bookI hope so, as I'd like to see how these sisters will turn out, and [...]

    14. Very exciting book. Characters were very easy to relate to. I felt that I was right there living the story with them. It was a hard book to put down. This book was as good as all her others in this series. My favorite character was Callie. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

    15. I enjoyed Running on Empty. The characters and their situation drew me in from the first. I appreciated the real difficulties portrayed. Some bad choices were made for good reasons, but the outcome was well done.

    16. Very good This one was as good as the first 3 were." I have enjoyed them all can hardly lay the book down.
