Daddy's Great Escape by John Martin

It is Father’s day today!

The Blurb:


What starts as a relaxing day for a father-to-be ends badly when he is chased into the bay by an angry mob.

The good news is he is rescued by a trawler — but the bad news is the captain refuses to turn around because he is headed for open sea on a fishing trip

The problem is Ralph has to get home for the birth of his daughter in this dark comedy.

His rising anxiety doesn’t improve when he ends up on an island ruled by a gun-toting old man.

This book was previously published as Escape from Mad Bill’s Island but it has had a facelift. It is now is the third in the Funny Capers DownUnder series but you can pick the story up right here.

My review Five Stars

You’ll Never Guess What Happened to Me Today!

Brilliant! Football referee Ralph’s wife Maria is pregnant with a due date of Christmas day… however, Ralph finds himself on a boat. He thinks he has been rescued from an angry footy crowd but no! He is the captain’s prisoner. (That’s how they used to employ pirates you know). Set on a boat, but mainly a little island I found this location hilariously framed the plot. Ralph swims to ‘safety’ after his entertaining escape from the disgusting boat. But he isn’t safe. The land is not the mainland and the only person there is Senator Mad Bill. A great character, he doesn’t mind being called ‘Mad’ but do not call him ‘Senator’ whatever you do! You will be surprised and entertained by how many characters show up on this island. All different and all brilliant. I thought the length of this book was just right for the dark comedy genre and I am pleased there is more. A three-part series, the rest is on my list. A farcical and funny dip into excuses men give for absent behaviour.

I thought this book was awesome, we are all feeling woe because we can’t go on holiday this year. This story is about an unwanted trip and is really funny. Click HERE to get it!
