To Escape And Surviveescape and survive danger that is closing in The characters of Hadley and Grace are tremendous They re both at a fork in the road chance brings them together and they learn they are stronger as one unit Their differing personalities blend so well that they compliment each other so they resemble halves of a whole The stand out character for me is Skipper Hadley s nephew who lives with them He is absolutely enchanting I love the way he looks at the world and the bond between him and Mattie Hadley s daughter is heartwarming The story is inspired by Thelma and Louise and it s every bit as exciting as the movie but has been given its own spin They use their ingenuity wit and common sense in order to survive the test of several lifetimes The action takes place in some terrific settings such as Coors Field in Denver This is a really well written thriller the plot unfolds effortlessly and the pace is fast There are some very tense moments of suspense too where you don t know what s going to happen next This has all the other essential ingredients too such as some humour moments of oy and some sadness Overall this is another winner from the author It s exciting very entertaining a heroes versus villains tale which makes you root for the women There are one of two unexpected heroes too Highly recommended Thank you NetGalley and especially Lake Union for the ARC 375 rounded up The newspaper headline read Real Life Thelma and Louise Blaze through Salt Lake CityThe two women and their kids fled in a Chevy Truck with California plates These women might not be Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis and there might not be a 66 Thunderbird or an Oscar nomination but there is no doubt of the similarity in these women s story with the fictional Thelma and Louise Frank was a terrible boss And and even worse husband But he had money and that is what causes these two women to meet by chance and become accidental outlaws on the run alluding the FBI and capturing the nation s fancy How they expected to escape is mind boggling Their plansnot well thought outAnd trying to travel with a 4 month old colicky baby a special boy of eight who will only dress in baseball uniforms and speak in the language of that sport and a fourteen year old girl with a very distinctive earring makes hiding out challenging Add in some uestionable choices from EACH of the women because hey that is what is going to make this road trip ent.
