4.0 out of 5 stars ...BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE... Jan. 3 2011
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is another absorbing, suspense filled novel by the author. Well-written, with a well constructed plot that has its fair share of twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing and turning the pages, the book is one that fans of the author will love, as will all those who enjoy suspense with a tinge of romance.

Penny Conley lives with her young daughter, Willow, in a West Virginia suburb. She works for an eminent archaeologist, whose niece, Diana, has become a very close friend of Penny. Diana goes to visit Penny one evening, when Penny's house explodes just as she arrives. Although Penny is critically injured, Willow manages to escape harm.

When it appears that the explosion occurred due to a bomb that was rigged to go off in Penny's basement, Diana is determined to take care of Willow and to find out why anyone would want to do such a thing to Penny. As she begins to discover the secrets of Penny's past, one thing becomes crystal clear. Someone is determined to make sure that the secrets of the past do not surface and will do whatever it takes to ensure that.

This author, the heir apparent to Mary Higgins Clark, is a wonderful storyteller. She engages the reader from beginning to end with an intriguing storyline. Her suspenseful mysteries are always a pleasure to read, and she emerges with new fans every time another of her books is published.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great suspense novel from Carlene Thompson March 14 2009
By Mystery/suspense lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In a slight departure from her usual style, Carlene Thompson presents us with an intriguing and deadly puzzle. The protagonist, photographer Diana Sheridan, has taken over the care of 5-year old Willow after her close friend Penny, Willow's mother, is severely injured in a house explosion. She is aided by the kind but enigmatic Tyler Raines, who seems to appear whenever Diana needs him most. Diana receives support from others as well, including her great-uncle Simon, a retired archeologist (with whom she lives), and his new lady friend, Clarice. But as bits and pieces of Penny's secretive past begin to emerge, both Diana and Willow are becoming more and more endangered. Lurking behind a clever façade, a cunning killer is gaining ground, growing closer every minute. The final revelations are stunning, and the ending wildly satisfying. Once again, Thompson has written a novel I can sink my mind into and relish until the final page. Another great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! March 22 2009
By Pauli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love, love, LOVE her books!! I own all of them and have a VERY hard time putting them down to do other things. You Can Run is another EXCELLENT story. She draws you in to the characters, they seem like real people, I cheer or cry along with the story line. She never fails to keep you guessing as to who the killer is all the way to the end!! Just when you think you have it figured out...surprise...it's someone else!! Can't wait for the next book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Carlene Thompson to date. March 26 2009
By WV Book Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all of Carlene's books and I have to say that this one is my favorite so far. The storyline is fast paced and keeps the reader guessing untill the end. I love the way that she uses her pets as characters in her books. Christabel and Romeo are stars!
I really enjoyed the way the book ended and how surprised I was to find out who the "bad guy" was.
The setting for this book is my hometown of Huntington,WV. Carlene does an amazing job of describing the beauty and history of our city.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Page-Turner April 25 2009
By Edie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As Diana Sheridan heads over to Penny Conley's house after receiving a frantic call from her best friend, a traffic accident on the highway slows her down.

Finally reaching her destination, Diana is stunned to see her friend's house explode, severely burning Penny, and leaving onlookers to wonder at the whereabouts of Penny's daughter. Diana is well aware that if she had arrived on time, she too would have been in the house when it exploded.

After finding five-year-old Willow hiding in the woods, Diana takes her and Penny's elderly neighbor Clarice into her home. Diana lives with her great-uncle Simon Van Etton, the esteemed archeologist, and together they start unraveling the reason someone would want to harm Penny and Willow. Because Penny was Simon's research assistant, she had a special place in his heart, and the tragedy touched the newly knit family to the core.

As Diana and Simon dig into the possible reasons behind the tragedy, they find that Penny was not who they thought she was and that others are also seeking answers. When Diana realizes someone is following her, she is grateful for the unexpected help from a mysterious stranger. However, is he trustworthy or is he also out to destroy her as was her friend?

This is the first Carlene Thompson book I have read, but it will not be the last. She takes time to properly set the story and there is depth to her characters that gives the reader a sense that what they are reading really happened. Thompson is a compelling writer who keeps the pace moving, the clues coming, and the outcome hidden until the unexpected conclusion.

You Can Run...
