The Lucky Escape

Author: Laura Jane Williams

THE BRAND NEW NOVEL FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR STOP, TAKING OFF JUNE 2021…

ONE CANCELLED WEDDING

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.

ONE UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTER

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.

ONE SPARE TICKET FOR THE HONEYMOON

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…


"A romantic adventure that takes you across the world and into Annie and Patrick's hearts. It reminded me how much I love both Australia, and Laura Jane Williams' writing. Perceptive, funny and ultimately hopeful – the perfect tonic for 2021." Sophie Cousens
“What an absolute delight! Laura Jane Williams’ The Lucky Escape is a fun, frothy, warm love story for anyone who’s ever succumbed to the pressure to shrink themselves into something more palatable, or known the joy of breaking out of a shell to become their truest self. A romantic, relaxing, inspiring not-quite-honeymoon in book form, with a surprising emotional heft behind it. I love it!” Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read
“The perfect tonic for these uncertain times – real escapism with warmth, a lightness of touch and vivid characters you really root for. I particularly loved Freddie!” Ella Dove, author of Five Steps to Happy and commissioning editor for Good Housekeeping, Prima and Red Mag
"I absolutely loved this! Have never wanted to go on holiday so badly! Also, I can’t remember the last time a book made me forget I had a phone. Pure escapist fiction!" Stacey Halls, author of The Foundling
"Oh my god I just LOVE Laura Jane Williams’ books. Her writing has such a power to make you laugh and cry like no other. And The Lucky Escape is her best book yet; a brilliantly clever, sexy, fun read you won't be able to put down. It’s made me impatient for a post-all-this holiday and for more LJW novels..." Lucy Vine, author of Are We Nearly There Yet?
"The Lucky Escape is Laura's best book yet. It whisked me away on a much-needed holiday – this is exactly the book we all need right now! It's smart, fresh, sexy and fun. A brilliant summer read." Beth O'Leary, author of The Switch
