From official release/information:
Getaway is another thriller by Lisa Brackman featuring a plucky heroine in a foreign location. Michelle Mason, a recent widow, decides to take the planned Puerto Vallarta vacation anyway, but finds it stressful and threatening. Like Brockmannís first novel, Rock Paper Tiger, this heroine Michelle is in over her head with the police, a sexy man, and drug lords. Every decision she makes takes her deeper into a morass of murder, drugs, and danger.
Product Description: Michelle Mason tells herself she's on vacation. A brief stay in the Mexican resort town of Puerto Vallarta. It's a chance to figure out her next move after the unexpected death of her banker husband, whoís left behind a scandal and a pile of debt. The trip was already paid for, and it beats crashing in her sisterís spare room. When a good-looking man named Daniel approaches her on the beach, the margaritas have kicked in and she decides: why not?
But the date doesnít go as either of them planned. An assault on Daniel in her hotel room, switched cell phones and an encounter with a "friend" of Daniel's named Gary gets Michelle enmeshed in a covert operation involving drug runners, goons, and venture capitalists. Michelle already knows she's caught in a dangerous trap. But she quickly finds that running is not an option. If she's not careful, she'll end up buried in the town dump, with the rest of the trash. Now she needs to fight smart if she wants to survive her vacation.
