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.

M.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 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.

I 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.

This is the first book that I have ever downloaded and when I started to read it, I couldn't stop. I had to read it to the very end.

Where Will You Run? was a delightfully surprising thrill of a ride! To say that the cover doesn’t do it justice is an understatement. ME Franco is a fantastic storyteller, drawing the reader in from the first page and never letting go. It was one of those books that you don’t want to put down until you get to the end. The story starts with Mari, a homicide detective who just found out that her sister, Kerry, was admitted to a mental facility for going on about vampires. At first, Mari thinks that her sister might have lost it, but then after Kerry disappears mysteriously, she questions how much of her sister’s story might actually be true. As Mari goes in search of answers, she’s partnered with the very handsome Raith Macrae who seems to be holding her back in her investigations. Though they drive each other crazy, there’s plenty of chemistry that has you hoping they’ll get together. This book is full of  mystery, suspense, romance, intrigue and humor. It’s a great story that will be enjoyed by paranormal lovers as well as those who aren’t into the genre. The only thing that I can say negative about the book is the editing, there were quite a few punctuation errors. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

Where Will You Run is a fast-paced paranormal read with just the right amount of romance. It is an action-packed story filled with adventure, suspense, and a touch of humor. The characters are well-developed and draw you into this awesome story from the first page. The paranormal twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end.  M.E.Franco demonstrates her talent for words as she draws new parameters for the vampire world and transports them to a new dimension. The story will have you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages as fast as you can read. This is one paranormal read you don’t want to miss. Janna Shay Author of Fair Play

The book Where Will You Run? by M.E. Franco is fantastic! I couldn't put it down once I started reading. The character development was so well done, I felt like I knew them all personally. Mari is my favorite and I could relate to her. The relationship between Mari and Raith is the best! Where Will You Run? is full of suspense and surprises and I loved that I couldn't predict the ending. I also loved that the story had humor throughout and had me laughing out loud often. I am excited about the fact that it is a series because the book kept me wanting more and I can't wait to hear what happens in the next one. I love butt kicking vampire books with the right amount of romance mixed in and this one didn't disappoint. I am excited to have a new series to follow, the worst is having to wait for book 2 to come out. Read it and I am positive you will love it too!
