Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It isn't that Jacqueline Barnett, Ph.D., is compulsive or anything, it's just that she needs her Day Timer and her master lists to keep track of her busy, fulfilling schedule. But suddenly being organized and efficient lose a lot of their appeal. Only 36 hours before their romantic Caribbean holiday, Jackie's boyfriend breaks up with her by voice mail because she's "a stick-in-the-mud." Then her boss insists she take her vacation anyway, to put her "organizational talents" to work impressing the head of the Phelps Foundation (who is staying at the same resort) and secure megabucks in grant money for their pharmacology lab. And when Jackie learns that Reade Hunter, a fellow researcher who has been beating her to awards since graduate school, is on the same grant-grabbing mission, something in Jackie comes unhinged. No more Dr. Stick-in-the-Mud for her. Jackie's new strategy includes flirty sundresses, sparkling spontaneity, and skimpy swimsuits that cling to all her voluptuous curves -- the perfect formula for a brilliant scientist who's out to win a grant, heal her broken heart, and get a decent tan in her two sun-drenched weeks in paradise. Runaway Bay is a fun-filled frolic of a contemporary romance.

    Jackie Barnett is devastated over the sudden unexpected breakup with her boyfriend. He carelessly leaves a message on her answering machine stating he doesn't wish to see her again or go on their planned trip to St. Sebastian. Jackie has two choices - to ask for a refund or to go on the trip alone. Her decision is quickly made for her when she discovers Farley Phelps and Reade Hunter are both scheduled to be at the same resort that she has pre-made reservations. Farley is the one who will make the final decision as to who is awarded the one million dollar Phelps Grant. Reade is her number one competition; he will stop at nothing to ensure he is given a winning slot. Throwing caution to the wind, she embarks on a journey that will lead her on an unexpected adventure. Reade Hunter plans to go to St. Sebastian on the pretense of finding a suitable mate for his mother. As an added bonus, he plans to seek out Farley Phelps and convince him why he is the best candidate for the Phelps Grant. He was unprepared for the arrival of his quick-witted, razor-tongued, sexy competitor, Jackie Barnett. Jackie is not what he had anticipated. He imaged her to be an uptight, straight-laced, by-the-book researcher. The goddess's body standing before him was crying out to explore her uncharted territory. Lisa Hendrix's RUNAWAY BAY is a light, fun read that will have you laughing out loud. Her delightful fresh approach is laced with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and tons of humor. I predict that with all these highly entertaining elements contained in this book, it will be the best romantic comedy that I will read in 2002.
