The Runaway Heiress
Stef Ann Holm gives fans of romantic comedy a reason to come back to the romance section of the bookstore. Set in 1911, the novel carries readers across the great state of Texas with a laugh a minute and warm fuzzies to last at least a week or two. Come on back to romance, y’all, this novel’s a treat!
Twenty-something Evelyn Thurgood-Baron makes a decision almost unknown to her station. Her father, owner of the Baron Oil empire, selects an appropriate yet completely unattractive husband for her. Forced into a corner, Evelyn runs away from home, hoping to finally experience life on her own. On the way from Beaumont to California, Evelyn runs into a New Orleans policeman, Luke Deveraux, who’s also on the run. They both get more than they bargain for.
The Runaway Heiress was so much fun to read, I can’t help but recommend it. And I’ll be on the lookout for any more from Stef Ann Holm. Enjoy!
