Who hasn't wanted to escape our "techno" world? I know I have, and this books helps me do that, even though I realized that I wasn't totally escaping because I was reading it on my Kindle. Emily realizes one day that she is so burned out with work and life in general that she needs to escape. She ends up spending time with an old friend and during this time reconnects with herself and parts of her life that were very good. I particularly enjoyed the parts about communicating with the coyote and her pups. I love that the author doesn't make everything easy at the beginning, that there is a struggle to get James on the same path as Emily. I loved every minute of this book and wanted to scream "NOOOOOOO" when it was ending. I wanted to continue to escape. Hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did. Thank you Barbara for taking me away for a few hours with this book.

I liked a lot of this, although it had a too-typical romance ending. I guess I forgot that's what I was reading. Thought the main characters were interesting, with the exception of the bad boy and the too-quick turnaround of his bitchy mother. The BFF was almost too good, too, but again, it's a romance. Liked the shelter part, and also liked the somewhat fantastical coyote part. That helped make it clear that she'd lost her way and was trying to find something within to get her out of the literal pit she'd dug herself into at her job and condo. Again, with a romance it's usually extremes -- the extremely awful job, the extremely handsome-sexy-badass former boyfriend, the extremely stupid criminals, and really? the police letting someone who is not on a SWAT team go into a hostage situation? well, still. Interesting story of a young protagonist trying to find her inner desires and strength. It's really a 3.5 but I'm a softie.

This was a very good story about a woman lawyer who snapped one day and started a quest to find herself. Her husband is also a lawyer and they have been too busy at work to find the time to unwind.
I would enjoy a follow up as to where they will move to and if they add to there family after their first child is in its way. I felt they were real people I would enjoy seeing again. It turned out to be a Very Good escape.

I have been a dedicated fan of Ms. Delinsky from way back. She's written some amazing books. Since her days with Harlequin to her more modern and consequential
Books, I loved her way with words. Don,t get me wrong, I love Harlequin, I'm a romantic at heart. But I'm also a realist and like to read about today's women's issues and
Ms. Delinsky certainly has a voice about these issues that should be heard.
I appreciate the rescue shelter as a side topic in the story. It brings to mind our own Pooh Bear, the first rescue dog we ever had and (don't tell anyone) also the
Best pet EVER! As long as Barbara Delinsky is writing, I will continue reading.

I am a huge fan of Barbara Delinsky, just not this time.

I liked the premise of the story: Escaping from the traps we've built around us - demanding careers; incompatible jobs; lack of personal connections; overall unhappiness with status-quo. I was hoping for a story that would be uplifting and lighthearted. Instead, I found the book tedious and boring. The protagonist kept dwelling on the pitfalls of her life and what she should do improve it. Add several other characters/relationships, some more developed than others, symbolic dreams and appearances by coyotes, a crime thrown into the mix to help the protagonist reconnect with her spouse, and you have the basic story line. I did 'a lot' of skimming hoping to find the magic 'escapism' that I usually find with this author. I should have given up after the first 5 chapters and reclaimed precious time, rather than force myself to read to the end.

I was hugely disappointed with this book.

I liked this story but, unlike most of Barbara Delinsky' books,I found this one a little difficult to read. It didn't hold my interest. I felt like it was written in haste and not much thought went into the actual story. I do like this author and have read most of her books for years, this was not one of my favorites.

What if you looked around one day at the accouterments of the "perfect life" you were leading, and literally couldn't breathe? What if the dreams you had and the people you love feel more like "gadgets" in your world, until you scarcely notice them? What if you feel invisible?

Successful New York lawyer Emily Aulenbach experiences all of these feelings one Friday, and acting on impulse, she leaves her office, goes home long enough to grab a few possessions, and takes off. Where will she go? Her path suddenly leads her to a place she left ten years before--Bell Valley, a small New Hampshire town that is a place of quiet peace. Surrounded by woods that seemingly beckon, along with a coyote's call, Emily believes she can find her center again here.

Old friends are there, as well as those she hurt when she left abruptly years before. But soon she is caught up in finding that inner core that once directed her, and deciding how to rearrange the pieces of her life.

But she just can't disappear. She still has to deal with those she left behind in New York, like the husband she loves. He, too, is immersed in that techno world and he is hurt by her actions. Will the two of them reconnect? Will they rediscover what drew them to one another? And will something that happens in Bell Valley help them do just that?

Yes, the themes feel familiar, but with the twist of texting instead of talking and computers instead of face time, we get to watch this couple as they weed through the extraneous layers of their lives to find out what they want. A new and exciting case in Bell Valley reminds them of what they once loved and helps them put the pieces together to form a new version of their lives.

I enjoyed Escape from the beginning to the end. In some ways, the character of Emily felt too predictable in the way she dealt with an old love and how quickly she found her center in this town. But the book earned four stars from me.
