The Lucky Escape (Laura Jane Williams) Book Reviews

The Lucky EscapeFirst time reading this author, and so glad I did ! Great writing, very real characters, and I was so invested in the outcome. Mainly because I wasn’t sure of how it would end. There was a really funny moment at a couple’s spa that cracked me up. Who doesn’t need a laugh in these troubled times ? I have been reading a lot of English writers who always manage to make me laugh. Love their romcoms ! I will definitely be reading this author again..Score: 5/5

The bride who makes a dramatic decisionWhen Annie arrives at church ready to marry Alexander she receives news that he's cancelled the wedding and has disappeared. Confused and heartbroken Annie has no idea what caused Alexander's change of heart. Deciding not to waste the honeymoon, she suggests that Patrick, an old friend, accompany her instead of her missing ex-fiancé. Leaving for a two week, luxury non-honeymoon in Australia they agree to be merely friends sharing a trip of a lifetime. After all, Annie has just been jilted and Patrick insists he doesn't want a permanent relationship. I didn't mind that the plot was foreseeable, reading about sunny Australia during another lockdown was a delight and a means to ignore the cold weather outside. An enjoyable and easy to read romance..Score: 4/5

Enjoyable book for escapismI read this book on my holiday in Corfu. It allowed me to relax while on holiday on my favourite island that I visit every year. This holiday was different because we travelled there whilst in Amber so had all the tests and quarantine to do and so The lucky Escape allowed me to float my mind to the love story that was unfolding in the book and totally relax my mind as well as my body. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a love story and travelling and adventure as this book gives anyone hope that they could too find happiness and/or love and adventure in their life maybe not only in their mind!!.Score: 5/5

DisappointingI found it frustrating that this book is supposed to be an English girl but is very clearly not as there is lots of American language and terms, ruined the read a bit for me..Score: 2/5

Not a complete story. Surely this book is more than 44 pages!!!!Incomplete book a rip off.Score: 1/5

Good readIt was good but it was missing something for me. Was funny too which is always a bonus. Would recommend.Score: 3/5

Stereotypical and unimaginativeNot every woman hits 30 and suddenly wants a child and a husband… the author implied it happens to every woman, I can assure from experience it doesn’t 😂.Score: 2/5
