Lucy's Great Escape by Rosie Green

Release Date: 07.07.2020


Lucy never wanted to abandon her friends and family, and travel to the other side of the country to start a new life. And all without telling anyone where she was going. But these are desperate times. And finding herself with a nightmare of a dilemma, fleeing her home town seems like the only way she can protect herself and those she loves.

The Cornish town of Pengully Sands holds happy childhood memories for Lucy and seems the perfect place to escape to, although having little money and no friends, life at first seems grim.
But a chance meeting with Madison and the rest of the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls, plus a decidedly attractive local guy who won't take no for an answer, gives Lucy a glimmer of hope for the future. Could she really settle in Pengully Sands and make a living by selling her watercolours in the little seaside town?

But just as life is starting to look rosier, it becomes clear that someone back home - the last person she ever wanted to see - has tracked her down...


Lucy is going through a rough time, after her mum’s death she holed up in her house turning all her friends away. The only person with whom she shares her grief is her father, until he meets a beautiful woman. When he brings her at home and they decide to live together Lucy is happy for her dad, but staying under the same roof isn’t easy and Lucy’s mind begins to tricking her, it makes her believe stuff that doesn't exist. And after a bad argument with her dad’s girlfriend she decides to run away. She goes to a little village on the Cornwall’s coast, here she meets a lot of people who will help her to get back on her feet.
Has she made the right choice moving away from home? Or will troubles follow her into her happy bubble?

I’m so glad I took a chance on this book because I enjoyed Lucy’s story. Her character is relatable, especially at the beginning I could see myself in her depression.
I couldn’t stop to cheer for the heroine, I hoped that she would find her happiness again.
I really liked the supporting characters because they are all positive influences and they help Lucy to believe in herself more and to make her find a new purpose, following her dreams.

This was the first time I’ve read a book written by Rosie Green, but I’m already looking forward to get next book in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series.
