The Runaway Bride
The Runaway Bride: A hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy by Mary Jayne Baker

'Full of heart, humour and larger-than-life characters' Debbie Johnson

Here comes the bride... but how long can she hide?

When Kitty Clayton flees her wedding, her life seems worryingly futureless. All she knows is she'd rather sleep on the streets than go back to cheating Ethan.

After picking her up hitch-hiking, widowed children's author Jack Duffy takes Kitty under his wing until she gets back on her feet. And it's not long before the two grow close...

But with Jack struggling to recover from the guilt he feels over his wife's death and Kitty refusing to face up to the problems she's running away from, will the two ever manage to share a happily ever after?

A heart-warming novel about love and new beginnings, you won't be able to put it down!
