3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing novel from Brenda Joyce 27 July 2002
By Rista - Published on
Even as a diehard fan of Brenda Joyce, one thing has become clear to me. Her forte is clearly historical romance/fiction. Her last few books, The Third Heiress, and House of Dreams have not displayed her talent for writing. Instead, Ms. Joyce's Deadly series offer a much more interesting suspense and character development.
The beginning of the Chase starts out in a promising manner. However, as the reader continues this murder mystery, with Claire as the protagonist and Ian Marshall as a stranger with whom she connects with, one starts to wonder, why would he team up with her in this chase to find her husband's killer? Their chemistry is lacking. Instead, the heartier portion of the book which is devoted to the 1940's storyline (about the connection between Ian Marshall, Claire, and her husband's murder) is much more intriguing and definitely more well written. There is definitely suspense, but The Chase is not a book which you read every page of. Skip the beginning, and you'll have a pretty good book. I would recommend Linda Howard, Shades of Twilight, or After the Night if you're interested in contemporary romantic thrillers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read 5 July 2002
By Susan - Published on
I really enjoyed this book! The characters were perfectly matched and the device that BJ uses by taking us back in time is simply wonderful! Though I must say I did get more caught up in the love story that happened between Rachel and Eddy then Claire and Ian! Though Claire and Ian had more potential, but they didnt have enough time to dicover or explore there true depth! The only reason I gave this book 4 stars is because my 5 stars is reserved for the Deadly series!
Thanks Brenda for another Great book!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Grief!! 15 Nov 2004
By djk - Published on
Is Claire supposed to be likeable,clever and witty? I found her to be petulant, manipulative and intrusive. Why would a man who works for the FBI agree to engage her as a 'partner'; one attached with not just white glue, but Krazy Glue!

I especially winced at the part where Ian and Claire were being pursued by a man in a black BMW,when he caught up with them and got out of the car, it turned into a Mercedes! OOPS! Where was the editor on that one?? Or was there a ferry-god-mother on the loose?? o-well, what the heck, they are both German made vehicles.

The story line gains a smidgen of strength when BJ introduces Rachel and tells the story within the story. However; the depiction of 'true love' occuring within the amount of contact that Eddy and Rachel had was less believable than a Hollywood movie romance. I think they had one 'official' date before they married; and that was spent rolling in the hay and Rachel offering up her virginity to a virtual stranger!

The morning after they married and broke into Elgin's slum apartment,Rachel was appalled at a 'look' she had never before seen on Eddy's face. If the marriage had lasted, I am afraid Rachel would have been in for a lot of little surprises. But thank goodness it is all fiction; which leaves me wondering why BJ couldn't have done a more believable job since the only limitation to the story was her imagination.

This was my first Brenda Joyce book and my last....

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay 5 Oct 2012
By mommyof3 - Published on
This book could have been great but I could not stand Claire!!! She was so annoying and the dialogue between her and Ian so juvenile. If I were Ian, I would be so turned off by her. I liked her until her husband died and she became this "new", pushy, horny and desperate woman. The reason I am giving the book three stars and not one is because I enjoyed the storyline between Eddy and Rachel - even with flaws. I too believe it was too far fetched for them to fall in love after seeing each other once and marrying after one date. **Spoiler Alert** I did not think the person they believed to be Elgin at the end was believable. An old lady killing a man with a small knife. All in all it was okay and I will definitely try another book by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars NO DISAPPOINTMENT HERE 12 July 2011
By Deborah L. Correll - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Only the treasured few "favorites" have their permanent place on my bookshelves. Since reading The Chase for the third time, I've realized I have a genuine liking to mysteries surrounding WWII. BJ's contemporary novels are favored, but several others grace my keeper shelves. You won't regret the read. I highly recommend The Chase.
