Book Review/Giveaway: Escape by Barbara Delinsky

Summary: One day, 32-year-old Emily Aulenbach leaves her New York law office early, drives home, packs her things, and drives nonstop to a seaport town in New Hampshire. On the surface, her spontaneous exit seems to have no single cause. She loves Manhattan, adores her husband James, and knows that most lawyers would beg for her job at the prestigious firm. None of those lures, however, suffice for the almost indefinable something that pulls Emily back to the place where she once broke her heart and ruined her friendship with her closest friend. A soul-tugging romance by a proven master of the craft.


Review: I don't know what it was, I just couldn't really get into this book. It was interesting enough about a lawyer who drops everything and leaves because she hates her job so much, but it was boring at times. Some parts were all just what Emily was thinking and I kind of got tired of her thinking so much. Maybe I'm just too young for this book because I didn't really connect with Emily all that well. James was probably my favorite character because he was a good guy and the kind of husband everyone wants. My favorite part though was the animal shelter part because I used to volunteer at a cat shelter, so I know how she felt there, but other than that I wasn't all that interested. The beginning was boring once Emily left New York and I feel like this book didn't need to be as long as it was. Sometimes I felt like the author was going on and on about the case Emily and James were working on and I was just bored with it.I liked Emily's story and how she hated the life she worked so hard to get, but the details of it weren't all that interesting. Escape was a pretty good book, I just don't think that it was for me.
