US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn are thrust into a high-profile case when they are called on to transport two prisoners across the country on a private plane. But when the plane experiences engine trouble en route from the Pacific Northwest to Colorado, the pilots crash-land the aircraft deep in the heart of the sprawling Salmon-Challis National Forest.

When Madison and Jonas regain consciousness, they find both pilots and one prisoner dead--and one fugitive on the run. They'll have to negotiate the rugged and remote backcountry through Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado while tracking a murderer who is desperate to disappear--and will do anything to stop them.

This high-octane game of cat-and-mouse from bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Harris will have your heart pumping as you try to catch a fugitive with nothing to lose.


Not sure exactly what rock I have apparently been living under to never have heard of Lisa Harris!! I mean I love suspense novels especially sprinkled with a little romance so this was spectacular and I cannot wait to read more from her! She has definitely been added to my go-to authors! The Escape is the first in the US Marshals series and boy does it have me hooked. I could not put this one down. Just when I thought I was reading the last chapter for the night something else happened and I had to find out what happened next. Needless to say some sleep was lost but that is totally okay with me. 

In this story we meet Madison James and Jonas Quinn. In their own personal lives they are both on a journey of healing. Madison is healing from the death of her husband and trying to come to terms at the lack of information on who killed him. Jonas is healing from a breakup. I love how they both are letting God take control and direct their paths with each other. This is definitely a slow burning romance and I loved it. It made it more real that it wasn't a rush to get there but you know it will be something that we see blossom in the next book. 

This book is seriously fast paced, heart thumping and and times keeps you at the edge of your seat. I mean you will definitely lose some sleep over it! It leaves you in a somewhat cliffhanger so the second book is a must!! I for one cannot wait for it! Seriously if you enjoy fast paced, suspense novels go grab this one!

My Rating: 5 Stars/Completely enjoyed it!!
