The Escape Diaries, Life and Love on the Lamb by Juliet Rosetti

The Escape Diaries by Juliet RosettiMystery
Mazie Maguire is in prison for killing her cheating no good husband.  The only problem is ….she did not kill him.  Someone set her up with a fake tape taken with a nanny cam.  Sentenced to a life term she has been in prison for four year when a tornado gives her the chance to escape.
 I loved how Mazie channeled movie and TV programs to help her during her escape.   Even so Mazie really is not the best escape artist ever.  She stays out more by luck than skill.  It is like watching a train wreck.  You know that she should not do what she is doing but you can’t stop watching.  She goes from one bad situation to another but somehow comes out on top.
Read the Escape Diaries for a quick fun read.  There are some great characters that help Mazie.  I loved Ben Labeck (read the book for his real first name).  He is good looking, very smart and a real gentleman.  Muffin, the dog, is a real scene-stealer.  Eddie and Rico are two wonderful teenager characters.  They add a lot to the humor in the book.  But the very best side character is Magenta who wears a variety of costumes but is a true friend when you need one.
It takes awhile to find out who the bad guy really is.  The program that Mazie and friends set up to out him is great.  Mazie is free at the end of the book but not all is resolved.  According to the note at the end of the book Juliet Rosetti "is plotting new escapades for Mazie Maguire.”  Sound like there is more fun in store.
I received a free copy of The Escape Diaries from Netgalley.   You can click here to read a free sample of The Escape Diaries.
Loveswept published The Escape Diaries by Juliet Rosetti in 2012. 
Goodread Summary:
Introducing the hilarious new heroine, Mazie Maguire, in Juliet Rosetti’s irresistible debut novel that follows the outrageous adventure of a woman on the run.

Wrongly convicted of killing her philandering husband, Mazie Maguire is three years into her life sentence when fate intervenes—in the form of a tornado. Just like that, she’s on the other side of the fence, running through swamps and cornfields, big box stores and suburban subdivisions. Hoping to find out who really murdered her husband, Mazie must stay a few steps ahead of both the law and her mother-in-law, who would like nothing better than to personally administer Mazie the death penalty via lethal snickerdoodle. With the Feds in hot pursuit and the national media hyping her story, Mazie stumbles upon a vast political conspiracy and a man who might just be worth a conjugal visit—if she survives.
