Summary

The emotional story of a young woman's journey as she leaves behind all the things she thought she wanted, only to discover who she really is. Number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr explores the challenges facing women today as they are valued for what's on the outside rather than the inside.
Jennifer Chaise is proud of her life. Coming from nothing, she's used her beauty to her advantage and is swept up in a glamorous world of wealth and privilege as the mistress of a high-flying businessman. But when she walks in on a violent scene in their Las Vegas hotel room, Jennifer knows she can no longer ignore the truth about her boyfriend, and she flees. Desperate to escape the men searching for her, she invents a whole new persona - with a new look and a new name - as she hides out in a small Nevada town.
Working as a waitress in the local diner, she finds a mentor in Louise, a retired professor who takes her in. As Jennifer begins to embrace a new life, she realizes how much was missing from her old one: a sense of community and purpose. But it's not easy to simply disappear. Her neighbor, Alex, is a cop, and while he's friendly enough, he may also suspect that Jennifer is not what she seems.
Although she is under constant threat of being discovered, Jennifer is surprised to realize that for the first time, she's genuinely happy. Suddenly this real world is all she wants. But will it be enough when her past catches up with her?

LOVED THE STORY!

I pre-ordered this book and was thrilled when it arrived. I was terribly disappointed in the very first reviews that were left. I was prepared to not like it at all. HOWEVER, I truly enjoyed every minute of it and hated to see it come to a close. Therese Plummer's delivery of the story filled a longing that I've had for more Virgin River and Thunderpoint stories. This felt like going home in so many ways.

It is my understanding from the reviews through Amazon, that this book is a reprint of "Runaway Mistress" under a different title. Since neither title have been available through Audible until this one was released, I don't have an opinion on the subject. I can, however, understand why readers of "Runaway Mistress" that purchased this book as well would be upset. Regardless, Robyn Carr didn't disappoint in this novel. Therese...you're still my favorite narrator of ALL TIMES!!!!

If you haven't read "Runaway Mistress", this is a highly recommend listen! Very much worth the credit. Just don't buy both! ;)

Loved it!

I read the original book under Runaway Mistress some years ago but loved how Therese Plummer brought it to life with her narration. Love Robyn's writing!
