About the Author

Karen Hawkins was raised in Tennessee, a member of a huge extended family that included her brother and sister, an adopted sister, numerous foster siblings and various exchange students. In order to escape the chaos (and whilst hiding when it was her turn to do the dishes), she would huddle under the comforter on her bed with a flashlight and a book, a habit she still embraces to this day.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just OK April 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is an interesting plotline and likeable characters brought down a notch by poor dialogue. I like when authors use the correct vernacular of the time period, but this book beats the reader about the head with it - if I never read another "B'God" or "piffle" again it will be just fine by me. "An Affair to Remember" is a better story all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Feb. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much, and thought it a good companion to the other Talisman Ring books. I disagree with the reviewer "Disappointed"...Chase is being blackmailed by someone, and has been trying to cope with it for a year by drinking and avoiding those closest to him. The reader finds out that although he tried to make amends for his actions, he is ashamed of his behavior that caused an accident and that led to the blackmail. I thought his actions (drinking heavily, running away) in light of his history were highly plausible, and the author built up his story from previous books into this one well. His failure is in trusting the wrong person and not those truly closest to him. I enjoyed the author's depiction of the Ward family and Chase's interaction with them, and would recommend this book if you enjoyed Hawkins other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and heartwarming! Feb. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Hawkins book I have read, but won't be the last. Chase St. John is running from his past when he lands (almost literally) in Harriet Ward's lap. Harriet's has problems of her own as the bank is trying hard to take back her family home and only her mother's bravado keeping them at bay. Harriet's mother invented a fake fiance for the lovely Harriet -- a sea captain with a ship full of treasure and laughing blue eyes, a face stolen from a portrait the mother once saw.
At first the deception kept the bank from demanding payment right away, but when the mysterious sea captain fails to appear, they begin to demand an introduction. Thus when Chase lands in the Ward household and pretends he has amnesia so as not to reveal his own identity and bring his famous brothers post haste to fetch him back home, the Wards decide to pass him off as the made-up Captain.
This was a very funny and warm-hearted tale. I loved both Chase and Harriet and cannot wait to find the other books that went before this one. I hope Ms. Hawkins writes fast!

What does that title mean? Anyway, this is my first Karen Hawkins book, which I purchased based on the plot and the endorsement by Julia Quinn. I have to think, however, that the endorsement is a general one, not necessarily for this book. That's not to say that it's a bad book--not at all--but it's not in league with JQ either.
The story is pleasant, has a bit of intrigue (especially with 2 villains, one for each lead), a hefty dose of laugh-out-loud humor, and nice couple. Chase is a bit selfish and spoiled, but also haunted (wrongly as it turns out). The reader can feel his despair and longing. Enter the ever-so-competent Harriet, who inspires him to get out of himself and look at life and family differently. Their relationship doesn't sizzle, but you can certainly see their growing respect and friendship. Chase is the one who really changes in the novel, with Harriet's changes being more of an awakening.
There are fun moments based on wrong identities, occasional farce, and warm, familial asides. The quotes at the beginning of each chapter do have a pattern, though it's not always obvious what they have to do with the chapter, and some are quite amusing. I don't know if this is a pattern with this series, but the gimmick could, if better executed, make these books distinctive similar to JQ's Lady Whistledown (though not as integrated into the plot).
All in all, a nice book, but not up there with the best of them. If I could, I'd give it 3 & 1/2 stars. I was leaning toward 4 before I wrote this review, if only because of the laughter. But as I wrote it and remember how slow it was in the beginning, I think I'll wind up with 3 stars -- though 3 & 1/2 is truly more accurate. It's good enough that I'll read Hawkins' other books in this series; JQ hasn't led me astray before.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Dec 27 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really looking forward to Chase's story. In all the previous St. John novels, Hawkins hinted that something was wrong with this beloved brother and I was mightily intrigued. But the story just didn't deliver. Chase is being blackmailed by a man he once considered a friend and is forced to flee England so as not to tarnish the St. John name. Along the way he has an accident and is taken in by the Ward family where he pretends to have amnesia so word will not get round that he is there. He supposedly carries an incredible guilt with him over something that happened awhile ago when he was drunk, but you would not know it by his demeanor. He professes that it plagues him, but his actions do not show it. The whole thing seems rather contrived. Still, the Ward family is likeable and Hary Annesly is a dastardly villain indeed. An enjoyable read if a bit of a letdown.
