But some readers might not be bothered. It's personal preference. It is a major spoiler so I'm describing the end of the book in a comment after this review.

Some readers might be bothered because a 17-year-old female has sex with a 30-year-old man. They cross state lines together. There are laws about these things. I just pretended she was 21, because I enjoyed the first half. Dee does some smart things as she is fleeing.

One weakness: I wanted to know how Mike found Dee after nine months of looking. I wanted to see his thought processes and actions to find her at the restaurant, her home, and after hitchhiking. That would have added some depth. As it was, Mike just magically shows up.

As they start to like each other, the author "tells" about their evening instead of showing. Page 133: "She enjoyed herself that evening, more than she had for a long time. He could make her laugh hysterically with his keen, dry wit and humorous, biting comments, and he could force her to concentrate more than anyone else could, driving her mind to quicker and keener decisions." My immediate thought was "can you show me some examples?"

I like Jacqueline's comment (on Goodreads): "I kept wanting him to call her `babe' instead of `dear girl.' Doesn't that last one just make you cringe?" Yes Jacqueline I feel it oddly dated. I don't think that was from the 1980s, maybe something from the 1940s? I don't know.

The book is short, half the length of a typical novel.

The Great Escape by Amanda Carpenter ~ Harlequin Presents #735 ~ November 1984

4 1/2 Stars! ~ Feeling trapped and afraid in a loveless home after the deaths of her parents, Dee runs away. Mike's been hired by her aunt to track her down. But when he finally catches up with her, all the things he's been told don't seem to add up. Not only is Dee very attractive, but she's smarter and more inventive than any woman he's ever met, and she's two months shy of turning eighteen. Suddenly Mike realizes that her aunt really doesn't want her back; she only needed a location to send the henchman.

Wow! This story takes you on a roller coaster ride right from the first pages. If not for the very young heroine, I'd say this one reads more like a Harlequin Intrigue. I understand that Dee has to be very young in order for the murder plot to work as she inherits on her eighteenth birthday, however, some readers may be bothered by her age. Great credit to Ms. Carpenter for showing us how intelligent Dee is, and allowing her to grow up into a woman as part of her story. To me this was critical in how I perceived her relationship with Mike. This is an emotional and action filled love story. The HEA was perfect.

A seventeen year old heiress ran away from the care of her aunt and uncle. Dee had been on the run for nine months now when Mike Carridine had finally caught up to her. He was hired to track her and return her to her relatives who were staying in her childhood home waiting for her safe return. Dee had managed to outsmart him for months can she continue or will she be returning to what she sees as a fate worse than death! Once Mike catches her though, there are a couple of near misses on her life.

Dee was fabulous! Even though she felt some things for Mike she enjoyed her freedom, to make her own decisions and to work for her own money instead of being burdened with the money left to her by her parents who had passed away years before. The mystery was a nice touch to this story as well. You wondered if the attempts on Dee's life were just a coincidence of if they were maliciously planned out; and if so by whom. A nice story to read if for no other reason than the fact that the heroine was just as smart as the hero, if not more so!
