My thoughts-
“Escape To Redemption” by Peter M. Parr
Josie finds herself in A LOT of trouble. She feels what she did was what she had to do but the guilt really starts to get to her. With the help of an unlikely person to help her will she admit what she has done? Will she free herself of her past?

The book starts right off with a murder and the killers running away. It’s very fast paced and heart-racing. The author knows how to get the story moving. I also loved how the author develops each character. I hated Josie, she’s a spoiled “kid” and tries to blame others for her actions. I also didn’t like Snaz, Josie’s friend, he seems as much as a lowlife as Josie was, but at the same time I felt he was just trying to fit in to a higher class of people by doing what ever Josie asked of him. Then there is Rook, the guy caught in the middle of it all. Both try throwing each other under the bus for the murder.

I really loved this book. It kept me engaged and on my toes. There were twists I wasn’t expecting. I also loved how this book emotionally had me. I feel a great book is one that makes you forget it’s a book and feels like you’re actually part of it all. Peter M Parr did a wonderful job capturing me as a reader.

If you like a fast paced, suspenseful book full of twists and turn, then I would highly recommend this book.

Escape to Redemption

“She can hide from the police, but not from her guilt.”

Josie only had the gun to frighten Curtis Rook, but his son disturbed her. One startled reflex and now he’s dead. Josie flees to Poland leaving her boyfriend Snaz to take the rap. A reformed criminal offers her refuge from the police and the chance to begin a new life, but she cannot hide from her guilt. As the stakes rise, Josie begins to realize that only her own forgiveness can set her free.

Fast-paced and original, Peter M. Parr’s contemporary take on Crime and Punishment challenges traditional ideas about guilt and redemption, and the meaning of forgiveness.

Praise for Escape To Redemption by Peter M. Parr

“…Parr’s superb understanding of the way human beings justify their sins (especially to themselves) make Josie and Snaz utterly convincing and compelling. An engrossing, realistic morality tale.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Gripped from the start, I found Escape To Redemption a real page turner. Peter Parr knows how to create believable modern day characters and conflicts, and never lets up on the tension. This is a book that will appeal to young and old, male and female.” –Mel Menzies, bestselling author, Time to Shine

“What happens when flawed but essentially decent people do something that will haunt them for the rest of their lives? Escape to Redemption is a powerful and insightful story of guilt and forgiveness. Peter Parr has a talent for suspense.- Mike Brooks, author of The Machine Society

“Let me state, very simply, that I loved this book… It is a highly addictive, unique story which raises questions of morality, loyalty and the power of forgiveness. From the outset, you’re thrown into a nail-biting scene.  With twists in the most unexpected of places, I had to remind myself to breathe. … “- Sarah Ryan, Cultured Vultures
