The Island Escape by Kerry Fisher

The Island EscapeThe Island Escape by Kerry Fisher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



We've all been there haven't we. Got married or got a long term partner, we think our lives are going to be exciting and we can see nothing but buzzing bees, honeysuckle and summer days before us. But, we never think there are going to be dark clouds, rain and darn right earthquakes!

Children come along, bills come along, drudgery follows and we find ourselves buried in mire.
Its not that we aren't happy, but is this life really all there is?!

Her husband Johnathan is safe, hes solid hes reliable, but is he also boring?

When her best friends marriage breaks us she takes stock of her own life.

Where is Octavia in all of this, where is the PERSON gone, where has she vanished to? Will she be able to find herself again.

Years ago, she was on an Island, that is where she left her long lost love. What if her choices would have been different, would her life have been different, can she think of going back.


Hmmm

This was a very good well written book, I thoroughly got into the pages of this today and enjoyed it

Highly recommended to anyone who loves reading chic lit, light enjoyable reads.

Thank you to HarperCollins UK, Avon for my copy

Can one woman’s marriage survive her best friend’s divorce? Fans of Veronica Henry and Erica James, this is the next book to add to your reading list.

It’s time to get back to where it all began…

Octavia Sheldon thought she’d have a different life. One where she travelled the world with an exotic husband and free-spirited children in tow. But things didn’t turn out quite like that.

Married to safe, reliable Jonathan, her life now consists of packed lunches, school runs and more loads of dirty washing than she ever thought possible. She’s not unhappy. It’s just that she can barely recognise herself any longer.

So as Octavia watches her best friend’s marriage break up, it starts her thinking. What if life could be different? What if she could escape and get back to the person she used to be? Escape back to the island where she spent her summers? And what if the man she used to love was there waiting for her…?
