The Great Escape
Where do you run to when your life has fallen apart?
Lucy Jorik is a champ at never embarrassing the family she adores—not surprising since her mother is one of the most famous women in the world. But now Lucy has done just that. And on her wedding day, no less, to the most perfect man she's ever known.
Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy flees the church in an ill-fitting blue choir robe and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle plastered with offensive bumper stickers. She's flying into the unknown with a rough-looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence.
While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up—and fast.
Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction . . . and unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her but reveals nothing about himself. As the hot summer days unfold amid scented breezes and sudden storms, she'll also encounter a beautiful, troubled beekeeper; a frightened young boy; a modern-day evil queen; and a passion that could change her life forever.
In this dazzling follow-up to her New York Times bestseller Call Me Irresistible, Susan Elizabeth Phillips tells the funny, touching, enchanting story of a young woman searching for her destiny . . . and of a damaged man who doesn't believe in second chances.
Good, entertaining story. Only criticism is that it might be a tad too long. Story could easily end 20 pages earlier than it does.Published 8 days ago by C. Royall
My favorite book from SEP to date!!! Great follow up. I enjoyed it so much it took me many filler books to get ready for another one. Ha! Lucy is a handful. And I love her. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michelle Crumbly
Very Disappointing...I'm glad Lucy didn't marry Ted. (Call me Irresistible). She certainly didn't deserve him, and she didn't deserve Panda. (Awful name by the way). Read morePublished 1 month ago by Cassandra
