Sunday, November 27, 2011 SHE CAN RUN by Melinda Leigh
Beth Baker thought she was getting a fresh start at life when she
married Congressman Richard Baker. Handsome and wealthy, with a
sparkling public image, Richard seemed like the perfect man to provide
the security Beth, a widowed mother of two, was craving. But shortly
after tying the knot, Beth realizes she's made a huge mistake. Richard
is not the upstanding gentleman she thought he was-rather he is an
abusive manipulator. And when Beth uncovers a dark secret about her
new husband, she knows Richard will go to great lengths to defend his
image and keep the secret closeted. To protect herself and her
children, Beth must flee, and fast.
Riveting and full of passion, SHE CAN RUN, is a fast-paced,
multi-layered novel that will grip your heart and leave you on the
edge of your seat in suspense. Melinda Leigh has won numerous writing
awards for her paranormal romance and romantic-suspense fiction. She
lives in New Jersey with her husband and two teenage sons.
Publishers Weekly just gave the book high praise saying: "In her
debut romantic suspense, Leigh carefully weaves the subplot of a
serial killer with the main plot of an abused wife on the run and
successfully ties the threads in a thrilling conclusion...Leigh's
tight, consistent plotting marks her as an author to watch."
This book by far was hard to put down chapter by chapter in a different view point of killer, victim, and innocent bystander leave you on edge never knowing where the storyline was headed. I highly recommend this read for someone whom enjoys television shows such as CSI and/or Criminal Minds as this storyline was previously something only Hollywood could capture. Leigh has once again blew my mind on how far and distorted a serial killers mind works and how underneath it all a love story looms.
