Book Description

NOTE: This novel has been revised as of August 1, 2012

Sometimes escaping can be the most dangerous thing to do.

All Kate Ramirez wanted to do was leave her lying, cheating, abusive husband behind and start a new life in a tropical paradise. But that's not so easy to do when he's a well-known pro baseball player being prosecuted for your murder and you unexpectedly become a best-selling author. Suddenly your new, quiet life in the tropics gets very complicated—and extremely dangerous.

Does Kate return to California to bask in the glory of her newfound fame—and free her husband who beat her to within an inch of her life? Or, does she remain in hiding on a remote island living simply and happily and let justice take its course? That decision may not be Kate's to make when a series of events forces the issue as this story races to a surprising conclusion.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Runaway Best Seller...For sure! March 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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."

5.0 out of 5 stars a real supprise July 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved This Novel! July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

Pretty quick & easy read. I didn't like the loose bits along the way nor at the ending. It really had the makings of a runaway best seller! Overall it was still an enjoyable read.
