The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Lucy Jorik is the adopted daughter of the president of the United States, who happens to be a woman. Lucy was a runaway bride from a perfect man. She left him, her family and friends at the church as she jumps on the back of a motorcycle and leaves town. Her journey is to try to find the real person underneath the perfect daughter, fiance' and sister that everyone believed she was.  It took a summer of running away and finding who she really was before she found happiness. Secondary stories had interesting characters including divorced, down on her luck Bree who recently became guardian to 12-year-old Toby, and fitness guru Temple hiding out for a while.  I really enjoyed the first ten chapters.  Until Temple the gay over weight TV star was introduced, the timing of the story and plot slowed down and became a drag ... The momentum of the book changed and so did my interest. Without the presence of Bree, Toby and Mike I would have stopped reading the book. The three of them gave the plot some life and kept in interesting.
