Just three weeks before her wedding, Anna finds out a secret her soon to be husband has been hiding.
Needing to escape her old life, Anna embarks on a road trip of discovery to find herself again.
Only when her road trip is unexpectedly cut short does she find sanctuary at her Aunts in the North East of England. Where she meets the mysterious and alluring Jake Turnbull.
But Jake as a secret of his own. A hidden past which cost him everything he loved the most. A past which was about to return. And a secret that would put them both in mortal danger...
I had already read work written by Sheree Smith. When I heard that she had realized another novel, I knew that I had to read it, expecting the same caliber of writing as Darkest Obessions.
The first thing that made me decide to start reading A Way to Escape was the cover. I liked how the text empathized the road.
Smith knows how to create an enjoyable pace for a book. It was neither too fast or slow, and she kept up the pace.
I found A Way to Escape written well, but there were a couple of errors, usually revolving around dialog. With that said, it didn’t distract me, and I wholly enjoyed the story.
I pitied Anna from the first introduction, understanding the whirlwind emotions that she had experienced, ranging from anger to blaming herself. I found the feelings to be realistic to the character, and I am sure that anyone who went through what she did would feel the same way. At the same time, I liked that she had the courage to move on.
The intrigue in the plot kept my attention. I kept rooting for Anna and Jake. After I began to read it, I could not put it down.
I would recommend A Way to Escape to anyone who enjoys a good romance, as well as a decent suspense. It is the perfect way to spend time, embroiled in the main plot’s intrigue. A must read.
