Review - The Lucky Escape by Laura Jane Williams


One cancelled wedding

When the day finally comes for Annie to marry Alexander, the last thing she expects is to be left standing at the altar. She was so sure he was Mr Right. Now, she has no idea how she could have got it so wrong.

One unexpected encounter

After a chance meeting with Patrick, an old friend who reminds her of who she used to be, Annie takes a vow of her own: she’ll say yes to every opportunity that comes her way from now on.

One spare ticket for the honeymoon

Could a spontaneous trip with Patrick be the way to mend Annie’s heart? She’s about to find out as she embarks on her honeymoon – with a man who’s not her husband…



I love stories about second chances, and this one fits the bill nicely. Both Annie and Patrick need to move on and the wonderful non- honeymoon gives the pair of them the opportunity to do precisely that.

Filled with wonderful description of Australia and Antwerp (who knew!) and a lovely slow burn romance this book lives up to its name by providing a good few hours of escapism.
