Melissa's Review:

Getaway Girl is a standalone novel by Tessa Bailey. Though while writing this review I found out there seems to be another book coming out in a few weeks that involves one of the characters in this novel (Runaway Girl) telling her side of the story. Bailey is a fun author and I've tried a few books of hers in the past and really enjoyed them, this one was no different.

Addison Potts is back in town and she's crashing her cousin Naomi's wedding. Things don't go according to plan though when Naomi stands up Elijah Montgomery DuPont at the alter. Addison thinks fast and drives him to her place so he can avoid the endless pitying chats at the church from the wedding guests. The local news picks up the story of the Getaway Girl driving the future mayor off and the town is abuzz. They decide he can lay low at her place until the media calms down and during that time the lines in their new friendship gets a bit blurred as romance blossoms. I was just waiting for her to be found out as the Getaway Girl or Naomi to come back into the picture.

Getaway Girl was a nice change of pace for me in Contemporary Romance. There's quite a bit of media coverage since Elijah is running for mayor which I don't tend to see in this genre. There is also a ton of family drama from events that happened in their mothers generation which comes to light. With unique characters and plot this was a really good read that I'd recommend if you like romances that start out as we really shouldn't but I like you too much type tropes.

The Narrators:

I find I really enjoy dual narrated audiobooks and this one just reminded me of that fact. This was my first audio with Joe Hempel and Lori Price as a narrator and both did a really great job. Lori channeled Addison Potts character, she was a great pick as a narrator. I occasionally have issues with male narrated books but that was not the case this time. Joe did a great job as well and I liked his voice. There was the occasional emphasis on a syllable that stood out to me that shouldn't but other than that I didn't notice anything and had a great time with this audiobook.
