As you know if you’ve been following this newsletter for a while, every now and again I like to mention a particular book you might be interested in and today is one of those days. This time, I’d like to bring Escaping the Past by Edie Baylis to your attention. You might be able to guess that I’ll let the blurb do the work…
After being released from prison, Jane Ellerton is forced to assume a new identity and relocate in an attempt to leave the painful memories of both what she has done, as well as lost, in the past.
When problems arise at her place of work, she gladly accepts an unexpected job offer, but instead of this improving the situation, she finds herself embroiled in a bitter feud between two rival firms. It is then that she realises she isn’t the only one who is not what they proclaim to be.
No matter how hard Jane tries, the net is closing in and the life she’d been trying so desperately to forget is fast threatening to catch up with her. Not everything can be left in the past and some things just can’t be changed.
** This is a Downfall Series book, but can be read as a standalone. It contains written depictions of graphic violence, sex and strong language. It also contains some themes that may be uncomfortable for certain readers.**
