SEP always involves past book characters in her story, and Great Escape was no exception. The secondary romance between Bree and Mike took too long to develop, but was resolved very nicely.
I think that we all miss Anna Fields who was Phillips' go-to narrator until Fields' tragic death. While Shannon Cochran is a competent narrator, I finally decided why she was ALL WRONG for Great Escape. Her voice is too old for Lucy, and secondly, most importantly, she never conveyed the joy that SEP imbues in all her books.
No, I wish I had read it instead of listening to it.
All of SEP's books are eagerly awaited, but this story was such a disappointment. It has stellar characters who did almost nothing. The heroine whined a bit, and there was almost no motivation to explain the hero. I truly missed the secondary romance that are in most of Phillips' books. The new narrator was flat so much so that times her voice pulled me out of the story.
Far from irresistible.
