As a San Francisco homicide detective, Mari Lucas was used to calling in favors to get her sister, Kerry, out of trouble, but this was the last straw. Instead of her usual minor brush with the law, Kerry landed herself in a locked psychiatric ward rambling about vampires who were out to get her. Working in San Francisco, Mari had seen a lot of crazy things, but vampires? Maybe Kerry had finally lost her mind. But when her sister goes missing from the secure psychiatric facility, Mari is forced to investigate her disappearance along with a disturbing increase in missing persons cases among the homeless population. Forced to work the case with an outside detective, Mari will stop at nothing to find her sister. But what she finds will change her life forever.

Sep 3, 2011I am an avid reader of paranormal romances. It takes a great author for me to attach to the characters, become involved in the plot, to get lost in their world. M.E. Franco did just that and more! Where Will You Run? was an awesome combination of action, comedy, and romance. I cheered Mari, the leading lady, on to find her man. My heart raced when times got tough as well as when things worked out. Mari is your every girl. You know her; you want her to succeed. When she does, elation. Where Will You Run? isn't your everyday girl meets vampire story. It's a story of loss, strength, and triumph.
Sep 2, 2011M.E. Franco's "Where Will You Run" boldly goes where a great deal of writer's and readers have already gone. The idea to wander into the same dark woods, created by such heavy hitters as, Bram Stoker, Anne Rice, Stephanie Meyer, M.E. Franco, steps up to the plate and handles the challenge with the all the finesse required to take on the subject of vampires. As I mentioned the names that precede this amazing first time author, one would probably whisper the advice, "This could be a mistake." Especially whenever you change rules, create new parameters in which the traditionally nocturnal killers can or cannot exist. But hey that's the magic of fiction and imagination. I'm sure, Anne Rice got her initial verbal spankings from the Stoker purists, and then Stephanie Meyer from the Anne Rice purists, and so on, you get it. The whole point is are you telling a good story, an exciting story, are you putting a cool spin someone else hasn't done yet? Then damn the torpedo's... More > and run with it. And that's exactly what "Where Will You Run" takes it. To another level. Franco's characters are well fleshed out, (No pun intended). She has a writing style that is easy to identify with, at times your given the feeling that Mari her main character is someone you know, perhaps even your own best friend. I very much enjoyed how we get to be inside the head of a woman who lets us know perhaps even for the first time ever..."man thoughts." How she reacts to someone she finds attractive yet feels the need to always compartmentalize his existence and how he fits into her world. The backdrop of San Francisco provides a rich tapestry for the reader to immerse themselves into. The story moves at a great pace, the dialogue is realistic and at times very witty, but never over the top or out of place. The action is also spot on. "Where Will You Run" may be considered, paranormal chick lit, but I highly recommend the book to the guys too. Who knows you might learn a thing or two while you getting to know an author who is destined to become a household name. 5 out of 5 stars! Paranormal/romance/adult themes.< Less
