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

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.

Fantastic characters, snappy dialogue, great pace, hilarious situations, sensual romance. What more can you ask for?
"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!
Want something fun, something that will make you laugh and maybe feel better? This is the book for you.
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" would make a fantastic movie. French's protagonist is zany and surrounds herself with people wackier than she is. Read morePublished on 4 Feb. 2003
