Mehreen's review: PDF copy

Escape Plan had a solid plot. However, there were too many characters involved that somewhat distracted my focus. The relationships were not clear at times and events were not sequential. The protagonist murdered her husband, when her daughter received an acceptance letter from Brown University. However, the time of the arrival of the letter and time when the murder took place wasn't clear. Apparently, a boat had reached theirs, either on the dock or on the ocean, not s

A must read after Outlook. This is the follow-up to read how Kitty's crime panned out.

Kitty and Seth appeared to have the perfect life but secrets were already known by many in the community of Outlook, much to Kitty's chagrin. Kitty killed her lying cheating husband and let her sister, Rose in on the crime to help her cover up. Oh what a tangled web we weave. Does crime pay?

Well written. Tightly woven. Loved all the characters. They are well described and the reader is drawn in as if you were

This was a good book, the plot was really interesting....and I Loved all the characters!!! =)
I liked how it kept me wondering throughout the book if Kitty was ever going to get caught and...
if Chip was ever going to find out about Bitsy....(you have to read it to know what I am talking about)
If I would have known it was a sequel I would have read the 1st book first.
Now I am going to have to go back and read the 1st book.
So if you want to read this book, make sure to read the book Outlook first

Love it! I was wondering how the author would wrap it up, and I was not disappointed.

Takes up where the first left off without skipping a beat. I enjoyed the way the main character evolved and became a badass! Kudos on the ending, and brava to the author!

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, "Overlook", but I liked "Escape Plan" even better. The sense of time and place were excellent, and I liked and cared about the characters. The story was bigger-than-reality enough to be exciting and keep me turning pages - this meant that sometimes character development or realism had to take a back seat to moving the plot forward and keeping all of the strands of the story weaving together. I don't have a problem with that. The only thing that kep ...more

Escape Plan is the sequel to Overlook. While it can be enjoyed out of sequence, I recommend reading Overlook first. The two books really make one single story if read in order.

There may be spoilers for Overlook in this review.

Kitty Haskell killed her husband (believe me, if you read book one, you'll think he deserved it and be cheering for her to get away with it). Now what? Not getting caught is only one of her problems. It's the 70s and she doesn't have a job, and Seth left them in debt. The

This is the second book in the Overlook series and you need to read Book 1 (Overlook) before this book.
Once again, Elizabeth Hein takes us to the fictional NC housing development of Overlook in the mid 70s. This book starts right where Overlook ended, but I can't tell you about that without spoiling Overlook. Kitty and her friend Stacia, work together to cover up a crime that Kitty committed in Overlook. They come up with a plan that will make it appear that the crime was committed by Seth's pre

This is the kind of book that you don't want to put down. in fact, you may end up being late to work one day for thinking you can get in just one more chapter before you have to leave!

For the first few pages I had a little trouble remembering which character was which from "Overlook" but then I quickly got up to speed. The twists and turns this book took- I never saw any of them coming! Characters surprised me, they were human, they were also mostly good.

I especially loved the relationship betwe

I loved it!!! I am hoping there's another book! Kitty grew so much more in this story. I was proud of how she held her head high and kept on going. ...more

ESCAPE PLAN is an interesting look at several women's lives. Hein does a good job describing the characters so you care about them. Although all the women are privileged, they're all facing their own challenges and are the type of people you can picture knowing in real life. A lot of the loose ends in Overlook are resolved in this book, which has its own satisfying ending.

Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.
