Product Description

Review

It's somtimes humorous, sometimes suspenseful and sometimes romantic. It's a book for many readers. -- Denise Keller, Book Reviewer, Writers Club Romance Group, 11/1/01

Ms. French's novel is a mix of dark truths and humor, romnce and thriller, with a dash of pathos. -- Laurel Johnson, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

The characters are fun with the perfect blend of spunk and spice, a mix that I found quite unique. -- John Savoy, Producer, Savoy International Motion Picture Co., 3/23/02

The story is well-told. The issues that WAR addresses are treated in-depth and with understanding. -- Barbara Buhrer, Book Reviewer, Myshelf.com, 12/14/01

From the Author

This is my first book, and if you like the writing style of Janet Evanovich, I think you will like this one as well, as several readers have likened my style to hers.

"Chasing Horses" has received four Book of the Month Awards to date: SisterNews Book Club (December, 2001); United Authors Association (March, 2002); United Writers Association (March, 2002); Authors Choice (April, 2002). It has also been placed with the McClung Historical Collection of the East Tennessee Historical Center as part of the local and genealogical history of East TN.

Format: Paperback
Be prepared to laugh when you read "Chasing Horses". The premise for the book is exceptional - a group of women who call themselves WAR and the vigilante group that evolves therefrom. Parallel to this is the background story with Ricki, a woman in her late 30's who is dealing with a divorce - although she still loves her ex, teenage son, and hot relationship with a sexy homicide detective while trying to stay in the background with WAR, which just doesn't happen.
Fantastic characters, snappy dialogue, great pace, hilarious situations, sensual romance. What more can you ask for?

Format: Paperback
"Chasing Horses" by Christy Tillery French is, without a doubt, one of the funniest books I've ever read. This first novel by Ms. French has become one of my favorite books.
"Chasing Horses" deals with a woman, Ricki England, who has been married for 20 years and feels as if she has lost sense of who she is along the way. After divorcing, she makes a vow to live life to its fullest and boy does she ever. Ricki is brassy and full of spunk and keeps getting herself into trouble. The scenes with WAR are hilarious, as are the ones between Ricki and her best friend, Charlie. The love scenes go from sizzling to downright naughty, with laughter thrown in.
Ms. French deals with issues facing women approaching middle-age in a sensitive yet funny manner. We see how Ricki deals with an abusive boyfriend, her soon-to-be married husband with whom she is still in love, her friend Charlie's aggressive attitude, her feelings about aging, plus a whole multitude of issues facing women.
But this book is not just for women, it is definitely not a chick book. I read where one producer (a man) liked it so well and wrote a great review about it at Amazon US.
If you want a fast-paced read that will bring laughter and tears, read this book. Excellent!

"Chasing Horses" is totally different from French's "Wayne's Dead" and "Chasing Demons", which deal with dark subjects. This one's a light-hearted look at not-so-funny issues and situations. Ricki England is hilarious, a woman willing to take on the world, and her relationship with her best friend, Charlie, is fun to read. I like their little spats over language.
Want something fun, something that will make you laugh and maybe feel better? This is the book for you.

"Chasing Horses" by Christy Tillery French is, without a doubt, one of the funniest books I've ever read. But that's not all. French leads the reader through a variety of emotions with this book - it's sometimes very sad, sometimes very humorous, and sometimes sizzles with romance, not to mention the suspenseful twist thrown in. Ricki England, the protagonist, is brassy, full of spunk, and a woman on a mission to find herself who along the way manages to keep getting herself into very funny situations. She also deals with the aftermath of a divorce, an abusive boyfriend, as well as issues facing women in their late 30's. This book is not just a "chick book" - I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good laugh, good cry, or maybe just get in the mood!

I began reading French when our book club chose "Wayne's Dead" to read anddiscuss, then "Chasing Demons". I've read her books out of order, but themore I read, the more impressed I am. She's the first author I've seen whocan switch genres each time out and still maintain her own unique writingstyle. I have enjoyed each of her books for different reasons. Both "TheBodyguard" and "Chasing Horses" have a lot of comedy, with zany charactersand situations. They're both hilarious.
I'm recommending to my club that we read more from Ms. French. It's greatto read a book that makes you laugh and leaves you with a good feeling -and this is one of those books.

"Chasing Horses" by Christy Tillery French offers readers romance, suspense, and humor. But that's not all. The dialogue is fresh, the characters are full of spunk, and the story is fast-paced. There are places you'll laugh, others where you'll cry, and still others where you'll get mad as the story takes you on a phase in the protagonist's life as she tries to deal with a divorce, issues facing women in their late 30's, and simply trying to find her place in the world. The romance goes from downright sizzling to hilarious. The interplay between the characters is so real. The humor is the best! This one's a must-read!
