One final cry-"God almighty, help us!"-and suddenly Hannah's world shifted violently and a blinding collision scattered her mind and shook her bones. Then came the pain, the freezing water, and a hand reached for hers before all faded into darkness. When Hannah awakes in a warm and welcoming room she has never seen before-tended to by kind, unfamiliar faces-most of her memory has been swept away, but not all. She recalls fragments of the accident. She remembers a baby. And a ring on her finger reminds her of a lie. But most of all, there is a secret. And in this house of strangers she can trust no one but herself to keep it.… (més)

Starts off with a somewhat ludicrous plotline, if you're looking at it from the outside, but there's some fine bits of sleight of hand writing, some great character development, some unexpected reveals that work really well for this story. I enjoyed it hugely, for all that it's not as humorous as most of my favorite regency-ish romances -- the details are excellent, the suspense is well played, and the characters make you want to cheer them on.

I like Klassen's books because they are clean romances that are usually more complex than just boy meets girl and love at first sight. This one wasn't clean enough for me and one scene was too descriptive for me. The "happy" ending had a feeling of "the ends justify the means" which I heartily disagree with, in this case that infidelity is ok if everyone ends up with the "right" person. ( )

Julie Klassen is an expert in historical fiction and usually I enjoy reading her books. I liked it enough to finish it, but it wasn't my favorite. ( )

After awakening from a carriage accident, a young woman is confused when she is called Lady Mayfield. When her memory returns, she makes a decision and then must endure the consequences.

From the start, I guessed the identity of the young woman. The reader is not left in suspense for long. The majority of the novel focuses on her past, which she is anxious to keep quiet for obvious reasons. Her conflicting feelings are understandable, and the consequences that she bravely faces.

The book is clean, although there is a scene where two characters get into bed together. This is written in a discreet manner and is not graphic. Though I did not like it, I don't think it very offensive.

Every few chapters -it varies-, we have the viewpoint of Lord Mayfield's solicitor, which adds an interesting layer to the story.

This Regency tale is entertaining and one I could recommend to fans of the era. ( )

Title: Lady Maybe
Author: Julie Klassen
Pages: 400
Year: 2015
Publisher: Berkley Books
Hannah Rogers is desperate to get her son back. She was forced to live in a home for unwed mothers and after giving birth, her son was basically held hostage until she could afford to pay for his care. The landlord, however, keeps raising the rates. Hannah is forced to go back to the Mayfield home and ask for her job back to earn the necessary money to retrieve her son. While on a journey to the country with the Mayfields, they are in a carriage accident. While recovering from injuries, mistakes are made entrapping Hannah. She knows she is doing wrong, but how else can she get her son back? While contemplating that situation, she is also trying to sort out her feelings for two men. She might set one free only to discover the other man holds no love for her.
Negatives: Please be aware that the publisher for this book is not Bethany House, who has previously published some of this author’s books. This is not a Christian publisher and that is evident in some of the content of the story. The intimate scenes are more descriptive than in her other novels and add nothing to the storyline. The infidelity of characters in the book is just too much. There are a few brief references to God by Hannah, but not like in the author’s other stories where faith is more evident in the main characters.
Positives: The description of this time period seemed spot on to me, and it is a period I enjoy reading about. I liked the writing style of the author. I also liked the one character who did speak of God the most, the housekeeper, Mrs. Turrill. She speaks of God’s ability to forgive any sin; there is no sin that is so great that He cannot forgive. She also shows the love of God to Hannah and Becky. She tells them that God loves them and that they are valuable in His sight. The author’s next book will be published by Bethany House, so I am hoping there will be more of a faith focus.
My rating is 3 stars.
