Publisher's Summary

Megan Thomas is running for her life. From Chicago, from the mob, from her controlling husband. She runs to the only place she ever felt at peace: a North Carolina barrier island she remembers from her childhood. Now she only wants to get lost - in someone else's life. A new identity, soothing ocean winds, and a quiet existence are all she needs.

Smyth Parker is running from life. From the business he inherited, from society, from an ex-wife scorned. His only escape is the solitude of uninhabited Portsmouth Island. He doesn't want anything else. And he sure as hell doesn't need a complication named Megan Thomas.

When Megan fears she's been found, she runs again - straight into Smyth's arms. His isolated island home might finally be her perfect escape. Or is it?

    "Escape from Reality"

    While Maddie James seems to have a talent for writing, the plot of A Perfect Escape needed a huge reality check.

    Megan Thomas, after 6 years of marriage, realizes that her husband Bradford is actually a violent criminal and plans to escape, ala Sleeping with the Enemy. However, too many things Megan did were irrational or just plain stupid.

    There were so many things any intelligent person would do, starting with buying a throw-away cell phone, contacting the FBI or US Marshalls (in another city) and doing an TV interview. Hell, make a U-tube video and post it.

    No, Megan just happened to find a lookalike double at the mall, and pays the immature young woman to impersonate her for a few days. Megan, however, did not tell the greedy woman that her husband was a cold blooded killer - not smart.

    This plot might have worked 25-50 years ago but not in 2014.
