Sometimes it takes losing everything to find the person you need . . .

Most people travel to Croatia for its endless sunshine, pebbly beaches and crystal clear sea.

Kate goes there to disappear.

She needs to escape from a life that has fallen apart in spectacular and public fashion, and no one on the beautiful island of Hvar knows who she is or what she’s running away from.

Until she meets another lonely soul.

Alex is different to any man Kate has ever known, yet the connection between them is undeniable. She soon begins to open up in ways she never has before – not even to herself. But Kate is not the only person in Hvar hiding secrets. And, as she is about to discover, it is always only a matter of time before the truth catches up with you . . .

Q: What do you get if you cross a born travel writer with an incurable romantic? A: The novels of Isabelle Broom. With its shimmering setting and heart-swelling, offbeat romance plot, The Getaway is exactly that - a much-needed, totally immersive escape from real life. I loved it
Louise Candlish
A one-way ticket to sunshine and romance, the story of two people finding each other and - in doing so - learning how to live. Uplifting, funny and full of heart, Kate and Alex's story is as addictive as sunset cocktails, full of characters you want to meet and settings that make you want to jump on the next plane to Croatia. It is compelling, beautiful and wholeheartedly romantic. An absolute delight.
Katie Marsh
