The Cover: I love the cover and it’s overall vibe and color scheme! Everything blends together and the entire aesthetic of it is very pleasing. I also like how their is a couple on the cover instead of just one model, it’s a nice change and I think they look very good together, perfect for Maggie and Talon. A+
Basics: Getaway Car was released on April 4th 2018 and genre wise belongs to contemporary romance.
Description: I needed to get out of town but didn’t have a car.
He had nowhere to go and offered to drive.
Forty-eight hours was all we were given.
A lifetime wouldn’t have been enough.
She had something of mine.
And I was determined to get it back.
I thought it was just my getaway car she’d stolen.
I had no idea she’d captured my heart as well.
Overall thoughts: Before I dive into my thoughts, I wanted to first discuss Leddy Harper. I am a huge fan of her and here is the great thing about her: she will break your heart then piece it back together again…all in one book! To me that’s an important aspect that every author should have in some shape or form, to make the reader feel something. With Harper it’s not just romance or attraction, she puts true emotion into her writing and characters and I just love it.
Getaway Car is a story about two people running from things but falling hard for each other. Maggie is an eighteen year old trying to escape a bad situation and Talon is also running from a bad situation, put these two together and you have one complicated, messy attraction and love story. They only had a few days together but they both made huge impacts on each other’s lives which is another trope of romance books I love so much, time skips and jumps. I do find that when people are apart yet they can only think about is one person very romantic.
The romance and the relationship between Maggie and Talon was great but my absolute favorite part of Getaway Car was the constant suspense and guessing game of the twists and turns throughout the plot! I couldn’t put it down! With the magnetic chemistry of the couple and my curiousness I devoured Getaway Car very quickly! No spoilers but once you pick up this book and start reading you won’t be able to stop because you won’t be able to put the book down! Getaway Car was a fantastic read and will be on my list of my favorite 2018 reads!

About the Author: Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters. She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
