Praise for Theresa Sneed’s Escape
Book one in the Escape series
Theresa Sneed’s Escape opened my eyes to the challenges of living with abuse and alcoholism. Escape leaves the reader with hope and the knowledge that there is always a choice. Theresa’s sense of humor shines through her writing as well. She is brilliant.

Eleanor Elizabeth Heard and Elizabeth Shepherd, One and the Same; Sheriff Merrick Snyder—Impostor, and then, from the newest addition of the Tennessean; Heard to Wed, while Merrick Snyder Faces Death Penalty. In a frenzied fit, he drove the blade of his knife into her picture. “Not if I can help it. Two more weeks, Ms. Heard—two.”

Shortly after the ordeal, prank calls started up. One or two a month at first, and then the calls escalated to the point that Grandpa Joe had their phone number changed to unlisted.
Sheriff Higgins said that they were copy-cat calls—from sick minds wanting to be
