Susan Elizabeth Phillips delivers another winner with The Great Escape, her follow-up contemporary romance to Call Me Irresistible. Lucy Jorik is the eldest daughter of a former President of the United States, and has lived her life trying to be absolutely perfect – up until she’s about to marry the perfect man. As she’s about to walk down the aisle, Lucy decides that she simply can’t say “I do” to her groom, and instead flees the wedding and her privileged life on the back of a motorcycle with an enigmatic, ill-mannered biker. Lucy’s great escape takes her across the country from Texas to a beach house on an island in the Great Lakes where she spends her summer with the mystery biker who turns out not to be quite the jerk he initially seemed. As she tries to find herself, Lucy finds herself becoming enmeshed in the lives of others on the island, including a lonely young orphaned boy in the cabin down the road, a smooth-talking real estate agent, a beekeeper struggling to make ends meet, and an evil queen who turns out to be rather nice.
