Last month I won an e-version of A Very Merry Chase, a fun regency romance written by Teresa Thomas Bohannon. I have to admit I admire Ms. Bohannon--in the intro of the book she tells that this was 30+ years in the making. Personally, I am not sure I would ever have that much patience with the process; however, I think the end result was worth the effort because A Very Merry Chase has memorable characters and fast moving plot. I particularly liked Sabrina St. Clair, the lead character in the novel. She is a spunky woman who more than meets her match in Lord Branderly. A fun read I highly recommend!

This was a very fun, quick read. There are some very witty and humorous parts that I really enjoyed. I expected the outcome, but things didn't come about the way I thought they would in the end and it's always nice to have some twists in the plot. It was also very clean except for some brief mild language. 4.5 stars.

A Very Merry Chase is a classic Regency Romance. If you love Georgette Heyer you'll love this book. It was nearly bed time when I started reading. I told myself I'd just read the first chapter. Ha! By four in the morning I had to force myself to stop and go to bed. After about two hours sleep I got up to see my husband off to work and then after waving him away with bloodshot eyes, I finished the book. There's a large group of minor characters in the background and several times I had to stop and remember who was who, but I loved all the main characters including the bad guy (who isn't very lovable, but there's something about him that makes me hope he has a happy end somewhere). For some reason I assumed the ending would be very similar to the first chapter (but different) and it wasn't so I was slightly disappointed, but with hindsight the real ending works very well. The characters are strong and stable and Bohannon has a gift for timing. She builds tension and releases it at the perfect moment. I look forward to buying her future stories (whatever the genre).

Ah storytelling with wit, my favorite! I do not hold to the notion that imperfect grammer or slight inaccuracies diminish a truly good story. This story was so charming and interesting, I only noted the author's name so I might look into her other books. 5* was just. Also, the writing didn't take 35 years, it was the publishing. Sorry it took her so long to get the confidence, for a first novel WOW!

I read that it took this author 30 years to complete the book. I wish she had spent some of that time checking for historical accuracy and editing, for the excessive, and misplaced commas, that permeate, this book. It reads as if an enthusiastic but ill-informed Georgette Heyer fan had decided to mash together her favorite parts of Heyer's books without understanding any of the concepts or historical details. Silly characters, atypical period dialogue, incorrect use of historical references ("mort" is a woman, not a man; daughters of earls and dukes were referred to by first, not last, name; and on it goes) and blatantly unrealistic situations are just a few of the reasons why I would rate this effort well below Black Moth, the first and most juvenile of Heyer's books which nonetheless charms with its sincerity and innocence. Spare yourself the waste of money this book is and buy another Heyer instead. You will not regret it.
