You Can Run
“Be prepared to stay up all night . . .”*
Suspense, danger, romance, and family drama converge as a rising star profiler strives to stay one step ahead of the criminal mind—and discovers that her own demons may be the hardest to outrun…
Laurel Snow wouldn’t call hunting a serial killer a vacation, but with a pile of dead bodies unearthed near her Genesis Valley, WA, hometown, she’ll take what she can get. Yet something about this case stirs her in unexpected ways. Like the startling connection she feels to Dr. Abigail Caine, a fiercely intelligent witness with a disturbing knack for making Laurel feel like she has something on her. Then there’s Laurel’s attraction to Huck Rivers, the fish and wildlife officer guiding her to the crime scene—and into the wilderness…
A former soldier and a trained sniper, Huck’s thirst for blood is rivaled only by his fierce pursuit of Laurel. He’s been burned by love, wounded by the government, and betrayed before, and to say he has trust issues is the ultimate understatement. Plus, he might be closer to this killer than anybody knows…
Once in the heart of darkness with Huck, Laurel must negotiate her distracting desire for him, her complex rapport with Abigail—and her mission to find a serial killer among a growing list of suspects and a danger that’s far too close to home. So close in fact, Laurel fears she will never find her way back to the woman she once was…

KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW:
Zanetti is a master of romantic suspense, creating tightly plotted mysteries with delicious twists and turns. Laurel’s interactions with the locals create a large pool of suspects that will keep the reader guessing. As is often a hallmark in the romantic suspense genre, Laurel uncovers long-hidden personal secrets of her own as she works the serial killer case. This first book in a new series follows more of an urban fantasy model, with the main mystery being solved by the end of the novel but several subplots left dangling for future books. Romance fans should be warned that this includes the budding romance between Laurel and Huck, which does not have a happily-ever-after in this installment.
A strong start to a new series promises more mystery and romance for an up-and-coming FBI profiler.
PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY STARRED REVIEW:
Zanetti (Driven) launches a romantic suspense series with this pitch-perfect blend of slow-burn romance and adrenaline-fueled thrills. FBI Special Agent Laurel Snow is an expert in serial killers, but she’s the first to say she’s no expert in ordinary people. She doesn’t quite get them, many of them don’t get her, and she’s fine with that. A panicked call from her mother draws her back to her Genesis Valley, Wash., hometown, where her uncle Carl has been accused of murder after a number of bodies were uncovered on a local mountain. What begins as a consultation quickly turns into a joint investigation with both local law enforcement and the Fish and Wildlife office, particularly Capt. Huck Rivers, as more victims are found. Complicating matters is Laurel’s introduction to an enigmatic witness, Abigail Caine, a woman who terrifies and intrigues in equal measure. Both awkward Laurel and dogged Huck are refreshing departures from typical leads while still remaining fiercely independent and easy to root for. Their romance only bolsters the deliciously intricate mystery. Readers will delight in this smart take on classic tropes.
