Fans of Regency romances and Jane Austen alike will appreciate the author's effort, if not the actual execution. Like the traditional Regency romance, "Curricle & Chaise" features a warm, but certainly not burning hot romance that's a pull and tug for most of the book. Like a Jane Austen book, the story features a large ensemble cast and continuous play on the manners of the Regency period. However, the book is neither fish nor fowl as far as Regency or Jane Austen clone goes; it goes on too long and has too little action to be a Regency, but is too light and frothy to mimic the insight of Austen. And I still have no idea what the title means. A pleasant, but unmemorable read.
