Great suspense novel that has dual story lines that end up interconnecting. Beth and her two children have been on the run from her abusive husband, a Congressman who has a secret he wants to kill Beth for knowing, for ten months. Beth's Uncle, unknowingly to her, sets her up with a job with an old Nam buddy of his. But before Beth gets there he dies. His nephew (a cop who is on medical leave) has inherited the place and decides to keep Beth on for the job his Uncle had hired her for as he can tell there is something bad Beth and the kids are running from that has traumatized them.

The other story line is Riverside Killer who abducts, rapes and murders women who all bear similar appearances. And the Killer now how his sites set on Beth.

This was the first book I had read by this author and being a lover of romantic suspense I was very pleased at how well written this book was. ( )

"She Can Run", by Melinda Leigh, is an entertaining, involving romantic suspense read. I enjoyed the "noir-ish" flavor and the humor "with bite". I loved the hero, Jack O'Malley, a policeman forced into early retirement when a drunk driver causes him a serious injury. Jack is somewhat adrift, not sure of which direction to take, when his beloved uncle dies and leaves him his home and horse farm. Jack had spent many happy summers on the farm in his youth, but he had planned to spend his life in the big city, retiring from the police force at a ripe old age. When all that changes, Jack must change as well. He discovers that his uncle had hired a caretaker, a young woman with two children and a lot of secrets. Jack is drawn to the lovely Beth and her children, and he his grateful for her expertise in caring for the horses. However, his inbred cop's instinct tells him that Beth is on the run, and he determines to find out what has sent her and the children into hiding. Beth is attracted to Jack, but the last thing she needs is to become involved with someone with law enforcement connections who could trace her real identity. Beth is terrified that the powerful politician husband whom she fears will find her and her kids, and since she knows his scandalous secrets, he sees her as a threat to be eliminated. At the same time that Beth and Jack are getting used to each other and settling into a friendly working routine, one of Jack's unfinished investigations comes home to haunt him. A serial killer whose victims were among the unsolved cases on which Jack worked is now claiming victims in the area of the horse farm. Jack is only too eager to help local law enforcement find the killer--a killer whose victims are petite and dark-haired, just like Beth. I read this book all in one sitting, reading on through the night. It's perfect for late-night, page-turning, involved reading.
