In this quirky follow-up novel, a chance encounter in a remote forest campground plunges plucky retiree Claudie O'Brien into a vortex of crime, kidnapping, and a marijuana hijacking. A pleasant dinner with Nathan, the gentleman at the next campsite, is disrupted by ...more

Keywords: Humor, humor and suspense. The first two keywords only adds to the fun of the third. Jeanette Hubbard’s novel is unique in that the characters are both in their “senior” years. Yes, adventure still awaits those seeking rest and relaxation. The second book for Hubbard, Chasing Nathan is delightfully fun as well as an entertaining read.

I never read back cover blurbs before I read a book, so I had no idea what the premise of Chasing Nathan was. I read the book since I loved Hubbard's first novel, Secrets, Lies and Champagne Highs.

This book is a fun and quick read since it's one of those "just one more chapter" stories... the pacing is great, the characters are both quirky yet believable, and the Border Collie's role in the plot creates some fun twists.

If you're a fan of humor, crime and/or mystery stories, this is definitely

Claudie O’Brien is my new best literary friend. Spunky, smart, and courageous. I first met her in Secrets, Lies, and Champagne Highs, where she accidentally shot herself in the head with a champagne cork while trying to kill herself with drugs and alcohol. Really got to know her much better in the clever Chasing Nathan. Compelling descriptions of the rugged coastal range mountains in Southern Oregon, were delightful. If you like Carl Hiaasen, you're going to love Chasing Nathan.

This book is a fun one to read. Claudie and Nathan are older folks camping at the same campsite, and they get caught up in a drug deal going bad. The dumb and dumber bad guys kidnap Nathan and his RV, so they have a place to stash all their marijuana that they are supposed to be selling. They have to meet up with the buyer, but stuff keeps happening to delay them. It's almost a slapstick comedy with all the goofy bad guys. Claudie takes in the bad guy's dog that they were treating bad, and quick ...more

"We're not old, we're well seasoned." Is the perfect description of Nathan and Claudie and many of us in our 60s. I loved this book.

Nathan owns a bookstore in Sisters. When he parks is RV at a local camping grounds he meets independent Claudie who is fighting to set up her new tent. Both are in their 60s, healthy and not looking for a mate.

In the morning, when Nathan and his RV are gone after a the late night arrival of noisy obnoxious neighbours who disrupted their lovely dinner together, Claud

Chasing Nathan by Jeanette Hubbard was a very enjoyable book featuring Claudie O'Brien, an independent women in her 60's. Claudie runs in to Nathan, who she knows by going into his book store, when they are camping separately. While having dinner together at Claudie's camp site trouble comes into the campground. The book never slows down until the end.

Chasing Nathan was a fast paced story that had more twists and turns, which kept me reading page after page. Characters and plot were well though

What an outstanding book! I laughed until I had to take a break before I could carry on. I still can not decide what was the funniest part. The plots within the plot, the strong characters as opposed to the inbred ones or the revolving door of people.I will be reading more from this terrific author.
If you intend buying 1 book, make it this one.

Started off slow for me, but once the pace picked up I felt like I couldn't put it down. The suspense and drama in this story were set off perfectly by the author with just the right amount of humor in the right places! This story left me wanting more and I will be looking for more books by this author.

I loved reading this book! It was a mystery, there was suspense and a lot of action. Nathan was the coolest. I laughed out several times. The bad guys are so stupid, they are hilarious. SMH as I write this and remember them. The book even mentioned something about "dumb and dumber" and that they were. Their logic blew me away several times.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and hope to see more of Nathan in the future. He leads a very interesting and mysterious life.

Huge thanks to Romontory

A funny, sassy romp through rural Oregon, with bumbling thieves, lots of bikers and, in the centre of it all, one sexy sixty-year-old. Great fun!

In this book we're introduced to Nathan and Claudia, two ordinary-seeming characters who are slightly acquainted and run into each other at a campground. In the middle of the night a drug heist leads to the kidnapping of Nathan. The rest of the book follows Claudia as she tries to locate Nathan, and Nathan as he tries to escape from the criminals.

Although the plot sounds serious in this description, it was actually pretty lighthearted, and funny in a slapstick kind of way - just when things seem

Well, I wrote it so of course I think it's good. I had a lot of fun putting Claudie O'Brien in the middle of trouble and I threw in a little love interest. Some of the bad guys are funny and not so irredeemable, and some are really bad. Claudie takes them on, and they will never underestimate older women ever again. Claudie Rules!
