Editorial Reviews

About the Author

With the phrase "Best Seller" in the title, author Lee Silber knew this book had better be good. It may be his first novel, but he has written 18 other works of non-fiction and won ten awards for literary excellence, including the Theodore S. Geisel Award. Like his main character, Lee escaped life on the mainland and moved to Hawaii where he worked a number of odd jobs (including a stint as a suntan consultant) before his brothers lured him back to California to open a chain of surf shops. Since that time, Silber has had a successful run as an author, corporate trainer, and consultant—helping creative people master the business side of the arts and teaching business people how to become more creative.

I've read and have most of Lee's non-fiction books so I was very curious as to his ability to immerse himself in a novel. I must say he did an outstanding job. Runaway Best Seller captures the reader and takes him/her on a rollercoaster ride of excitement and empathy for Kate (the protagonist) It is well written, light, humorous and yet heart rendering. It is evident Lee has a familiarity with Hawaii as he paints such vivid pictures of the lush beauty of the islands. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for Lee to gift us with another Novel. This book in my opinion mirrors its title... it is a Runaway "Best Seller."

"This novel was a pleasure to read because it took me to paradise and provided the kind of escape a good summer book should. I felt like I was on vacation while reading it even though I was office bound."

I got this book for $3.99. I thought way not it's only $3.99. After reading this book I would have paid $17 to $20 for it. Really good book. Such a suprise, I could not put it down, read it in one day, did not want to stop. You will love the main character and you will not see her as a victum but a fighter. She has so many jurks that come into her life and she sees right through them and doesn't let them play her. It is truely a good story from first page to the last. People are trying to kill her right and left and she keeps one step ahead of them till the end. You really must read this book. This will be the best money you have spent all summer.
Go for it, you will be glad you did.

Thoroughly enjoyed Runaway Best Seller. Having visited the island of Kauai for over fifty years I found the author's description of the island to be spot on.
This book definitely kept my attention and just hated to put it down. Definitely a winner for this first time author.

I am not a reader but wanted a book to take on my cruise. I started the book on my roadtrip to Miami and finished it by the 2nd day before ever getting on the ship. My husband then read it in two days because he could not put it down either. He is a reader and said it was a very simple, predictable storyline, however he enjoyed it.

It kept me interested until the end. I only wish there was more detail about what Angel's reaction was at the end.
