Where Will You Run, by M.E. Franco, is a fast-paced novel that had me turning pages, hungry to get to the end (pardon the pun). The characters were relatable and consistent, and the plot well thought-out–there were a couple of things I did not see coming (I won’t go into details for fear of spoiling things). I particularly enjoyed the banter between characters and the main character’s sense of humour. I enjoyed it so much that as soon as I finished it, I bought the next book in the Dion series. I’m looking forward to more good reads from ME Franco. The only thing that stopped me from giving it 5 stars was the lack of commas at certain points. Because I’m an editor, I find it hard to overlook that stuff and I have to admit, I’m tough when it comes to star ratings, but the book was good enough that I still raced through it, reading it in a day. I highly recommend it.Reviewed by: Dionne Lister Reviewer`s blog:

I love Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse series, but this book was a big “F you” to all Sookie fans. 13 books and YEARS of my life are gone for the biggest letdown in recent memory. Charlaine Harris is supremely talented and she had the power in her hands to make us fall in love with the baddest of bad boys then said, “Oh, I’m tired of this so never mind” GRRR!! Here’s my review:
2 stars: What just happened?
First off, I’m not usually one to complain about price in a book review, but this IS still a product review, so I have to say this book is overpriced for a Kindle version. With that out of the way, I’m so upset with the way this book was written. I absolutely love Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse series. I have invested YEARS reading this series and we got the shaft. I wasn’t disappointed in who she ended up with, on the contrary, I think Sookie had to end up there. It’s how Sookie got there that really screwed the fans.
This book starts out in 3rd person, then goes to 1st person, and then suddenly you’re back to 3rd person again. It was really annoying and throws you out of the story. The big issue we’ve all been waiting to see resolved was the relationship between Eric & Sookie. That’s all I cared about any longer. I didn’t care to read another somebody-is-trying-to-kill-Sookie book. Somebody is always trying to kill Sookie! Who cares? If you’re waiting to enjoy the final drama between Eric and Sookie, then get ready for disappointment! It was swept aside in 2 pages as if years were not invested in the whole story of them. From there, the whole book felt forced as if the author was trying to tie a bow on our years of investment so she could move on to the next thing. I feel so cheated.
