What I’m Reading: The Escape Artist

Ever since listening to the audio books Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain and her book  The Midwife’s Confession (You can read my review on that book here) I’ve been on the hunt for more of her books.  That’s what lead to The Escape Artist also by Diane Chamberlain.


I picked it by default as it was the only other audio book by her that my online library had.  I have to say it was an okay book.  It wasn’t as good as the other two.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on why I didn’t like this one as well until I started writing this review.  This book was written earlier in her career and I don’t think the character development was quite as book….also this one isn’t written in first person.  I prefer books written in first person..the catch me every time!

Here’s what Amazon had to say about the book, “Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler, but rather than turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife, she goes on the run. She dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she’s beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people . . . if she’s willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt, and worst of all, losing her son. “

The book wasn’t bad..I just like the previous books by her better.  Amazon readers say 4.3 stars…I just say 3.9.  I’ll still be looking for more of her books.  Sadly the on line library has no more audio books by her…just Kindle books and I already have on of those I’m reading.

    I just finished reading the Necessary Lies, after not being able to put down the Midwife’s Confession. Both were amazing books. I guess I won’t read this one, as you didn’t think it was that great.

    I’m reading this book at the moment also after discovering Diane Chamberlain when you did a review of The Midwife’s Confession…have read a few others so far and love them all. Love it when I discover a new author I really like!
