She Can Run

Ballet dancer Tommie Purnell has finally left her troubles behind her. After a devastating scandal derails her dancing career in New York, she flees to Houston for a fresh start. Once her new dance studio takes off, the rest of Tommie's life follows suit. But when a local woman connected to Tommie turns up dead, Tommie is petrified...and doesn't know where to turn.

When veteran homicide detective Paulo Sanchez walks through her door, Tommie wonders if her troubles have just doubled. She and Paulo had a torrid attraction years ago...but she's sworn off men because of too many broken dreams. Yet their sizzling attraction can't be denied, and as their passion intensifies, the killer's body count also rises. That's when all clues point toward the one person Tommie thought she could finally believe in...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers who like a pinch of plot to a pound of seduction will love Smith’s sizzling suspense novel, which reads like the screenplay for an erotic film. There’s not a lot of romance but plenty of sex as dance teacher Tomasina “Tommie” Purnell and homicide cop Paulo Sanchez strut their unbelievably hot bodies through a couple of murders. Smith (No One but You) takes a refreshingly casual, low-key approach to interracial dating. Paulo and his partner, Julius Donovan, are well drawn and the minor characters are memorable, but Smith goes over the top with Tommie, a former stripper with sexy curves who improbably became a prima ballerina at age 29. The investigation is written in a smooth, flowing style, but the prose turns purple whenever Tommie and Paulo get together, and sex often overrides suspense. (Dec.)

    Very good

    Ms. Smith is becoming one of my favorite authors. I really enjoyed this well written suspense novel. It was nice to read about a heroine who was not miss perfect. This is more of a suspense story than romance but you will not be disappointed. It was nice to get an update on Rafe and Norrine from her previous book, Weapons of Seduction. Once again a job well done Ms. Smith.

    I love this book. It was a true page turner all the way to the end. The only thing that got me was that the ending seemed to be rushed. I love all Maureen Smith books so i knew i wasn't going to find anything wrong with this one.

    Great Story!

    Kudos to Ms. Smith! This story had just the right amount of suspense and romance. Tommie and Paulo's story was well-developed and believable. I could imagine them as real people not just made up characters like most in this genre! Neither is perfect and they don't try to hide it. The supporting characters were great too!
