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.

The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Normally I really enjoy Ms Phillips novels. Usually they are fairly light and fluffy, with something that will eventually pull on your emotional strings, perhaps make you weep a tiny bit just before the feel good “happily ever after” ending. This book t...
Salvo por algun que otro momento que me crispo los nervios (algo que me suele pasar con la autora) ninguno fue demasidado terrible (spoilers de otros libros!) como la violacion en [b:This Heart of Mine|73100|This Heart of Mine (Chicago Stars, #5)|Susan Elizabeth Phillips|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloud...
I did not really like the beginning, Lucy was kind of annoying and needy. Main male character had long hair, which is gross for men.I liked the middle and the ending. I liked seeing Lucy break out of her shell, and also seeing the male guy break lose in the emotions department. I did not see that pl...
This was also great, but I still love Meg more :)))
