THE ESCAPE DIARIES

Author(s): 

What do you get when you cross a wrongfully convicted heroine on the run, a deadly mother-in-law with a penchant for baking lethal goodies and half a town cheering on an escaped convict? A hit! Prepare for belly-aching, laugh-out-loud moments with Rosetti’s hilarious debut. Witty and smart, this book will win over even the most reluctant reader from the very first page. After it’s finished, you’ll be asking yourself: Was this really Rosetti’s first novel, and when does her second one come out?

For the last three years, Mazie Maguire has been serving time for killing her rich, philandering husband. The truth is, she’s innocent. When a natural disaster occurs, it presents her with the perfect opportunity to make a run for freedom. Now, she’s on the lam with a good chance to find out who the real perpetrator is. But there’s a cast of quirky characters on her tail, including one crazy mother-in-law, a determined law enforcement officer and a cute photojournalist who might just be Mazie’s only hope at finding redemption.
