Book Review: The Lucky Escape by Laura Jane Williams

The Lucky Escape by Laura Jane Williams book cover


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.


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.


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...

Get your summer reading sorted with this gorgeous tale of second-chance romance! 

The Lucky Escape is all about Annie, a jilted bride looking for a fresh start. After a chance encounter with an old friend from drama school, it seems like things might just be looking up for Annie. Coupled with the fact that her ex's generous parents want to send her away on what was supposed to be her honeymoon, Annie's whole life is suddenly turned upside down. 

With a brand new life and a brand new self to rediscover, this is a story of love, romance, and being true to yourself. It's also bound to give you travel envy reading about the luxury hotels, sights and attractions that Annie visits on her honeymoon!

The dynamic between the main characters is written excellently, and it's exciting to see how it develops over the course of the book. However, despite its enjoyable and easy to read nature, this is actually a different story than you might first think. I'd say it's more a journey of self-discovery with a subplot of romance, rather than a pure rom-com. 

Annie and Patrick complement one another perfectly. From the moment they meet, you find yourself willing them to get together, and there are plenty of sweetly romantic moments peppered throughout the story. Of course, there are some bumps along the road too, but you'll have to read it yourself to find out if Annie and Patrick get their happily ever after!

The Lucky Escape is the perfect feel-good read for summer!
