    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle 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 to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    Story

    The Great Escape follows on from the events that kicked off Call Me Irresistible. Starting from Lucy's abrupt departure from her wedding to Ted, the plot continues to explain Lucy's time on the run.

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my favourite authors and I am yet to find one of her books that I didn't enjoy. Having said that, I have noticed that her older works (Fancy Pants, Honey Moon, Dream a Little Dream) lack some of the light hearted crazy humour of her newer publications (Match Me if You Can, Natural Born Charmer and Call Me Irresistible), which at times had me laughing so hard I cried. The Great Escape, while still demonstrating S.E.P's typical wit, seemed to lean more towards her older more serious style. Never the less, the story included all the elements I have come to love in a Susan Elizabeth Phillips Novel. It has a great plot with equal amounts of drama and romance.

    I loved Anna Fields narration of these novels and I think any narrator who follows in her footsteps has some pretty big shoes to fill. It took me some time to adjust to Shannon Cochran in Call Me Irresistible but I feel she did a great job on both that book and The Great Escape.

    All in all I feel anything by S.E.P is worth my credit and The Great Escape was no exception, I loved it from start to finish.
