  • Compelling, quick, enjoyable read!

    THE LUCKY ESCAPE by Laura Jane Williams is the luscious, ultimate escape from the moment Annie is jilted at the altar through working through the realities she was never willing to face through taking charge of her own life and making the right choices for her. Yes, it's rousing. Yes, there is love in all its forms: lovers, friends, family. Yes. there is escape and then return with treasures she never dreamed possible for herself until she faces the tough, speaks up for herself, and goes directly for what she wants. Annie's recharge had me cheering for her while tearing through the pages of this enjoyable story. I received an early reader copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • very nice

    I read this book both as an audiobook and as an ebook and I liked them both, but I must admit the narrator made a really great job, so I'm a bit partial to the audio version. The story is nice and I appreciated the fact that it was quite not about the romance, but more about self growth and finding one real self. The best part of the story is definitely the honeymoon in Australia, which I really enjoyed. It is when we get to know Annie and Patrick better, and also discover things of their past that explain why they are how they are. A lovely read! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Great Beach Read

    Thank you NetGalley and Avon Books UK for providing me a digital copy in exchange for an honest review. Gist on Readerly: "An entertaining romance about a woman left on her wedding day that goes on her honeymoon with an unpredictable companion." This book is a great “beach read”. The story was light and enjoyable, and it provided great escapism. It felt a bit slow at the beginning, then it picked up the pace in the central part of the story becoming a page-turner. I truly enjoyed the honeymoon part, which was so well-structured. Plus, some funny scenes made me giggle a lot. On the other hand, the last part of the book was less captivating, and I got a bit frustrated with the main character Annie. However, I appreciated her development from being a people pleaser to a more independent person who finally stands for what she wants. I recommend the book to anyone looking for an easy read that allows you to immerse yourself in an extremely dreamy holiday in Australia.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good summer book

    I enjoyed this audiobook, which is a good book to read in the summer time. The story is about a woman called Annie who got stood up at the altar and then went on to go on her honeymoon to Australia with her friend Patrick. Annie tries to find herself again after her heartbreak, so she is a bit up and down before she finds her happiness. I liked the narrator of this audiobook, who did a good job.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Cute light romance

    This book had a little bit of all the things I love. A jilted bride who decides to take that honeymoon anyway, a blast from the past and fate making all the things happen. Annie was left at the alter by Alexander, and if that isn't bad enough, he leaves the country. She has no explaination for why he walked out on a 10 year relationship. No way to get closure. Days after she is jilted, she runs into Patrick, an old friend from drama camp when she was just a teen. They had a connection then, but there is something pulling them together now. When Annie's ex inlaws encourage her to take the honeymoon she had planned and they paid for, Patrick invites himself along so that he can help Annie find herself again. If you think this is just an easy love story of finding love after heartache, think again. Both of the characters have trememdous issues to work through. The biggest issue I had with the book was the speed in which they were there one minute and thrown by the wayside the second. I do understand that Annie and Patrick found eachother for a reason and that fate had a hand in all of this, but it felt a little rushed for my taste, even if I adored the plot line. 3.5 stars for this light summer read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
