  • Enjoyable and informative

    ****The Runaway Bride by British author Mary Jayne Baker is a different take on this trope. Kitty literally ran on foot after the wedding with no money, no ID, no phone. She is rescued on the side of the road by Jack, a well known children’s author. The story unfolds as the two travel in the small camper Jack and his very pregnant dog call home. It basically is a journey of self discovery and emotional growth for both as little by little they open up about their lives. The author addresses serious topics such as emotional abuse and grief. The journey is interesting as well as enlightening and well worth your time. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley. Highly recommend.

  • Great romance

    Wonderful romance about grief, running away and family. **Spoilers*** Kitty Clayton, freshly married, runs off from her reception, after seeing something that makes her second guess her life. Jack Duffy, a well known children’s author/illustrator, picks up Kitty on the side of the road with his camper and brings her to her aunt, thinking they’ll never see each other again. When their paths cross again, they’re stuck together for a while and start to become friends.. Kitty and Jack take a journey in the camper through England/Scotland while helping each other through grief, problems and feelings. There are two plot twists that one does not really see coming, but fit well into the story line. I enjoyed this ride and want to thank the publisher for this ebook copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • a five-star read to run away with

    The Runaway Bride by Mary Jayne Baker a five-star read to run away with. This was such a glorious read, it was funny and brutally honest and just made me so desperate to read every page that I was sneaking pages in all the time, just to see what those sneaky marionettes were up to. There was something so enchanting about Jack Duffy, especially his reaction to a woman in a wedding dress and wellies. Overall, this was such a pleasant read, there were points that it was troubling, but the author did a great job of dealing with them that left you feeling like it was done well. This was my first read by this author, but it will not be the last I plan to go and check out the rest as what a lovely style of writing.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very enjoyable

    I wish I could read a Mary Jayne Baker book every week! I so enjoy her novels. The plots and characters are original and likable. The plots are different. Even the story of a runaway bride which has been done hundreds of times in romance novels is fresh and new in her hands. She also is tackling some difficult subjects as her characters are dealing with sad backstories. Kitty’s Ex is a real dirtbag. The only question is why she would have stuck with him so long, but that becomes clearer as we learn more about her upbringing. And poor Jack hasn’t been able to cope with a tragic loss. But they’re still interesting people with wry senses of humor. They are both kind and sweet people who are clearly meant for each other. And their interplay kept me up late to find out how it was all going to come out. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
