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.

Sometimes you want a light, frothy snack of a book. Something that won't bog you down with intricate plots, detailed descriptions of food, furnishing and dress. Sometimes you want to read an epic ... and sometimes you don't.

This book is perfect for those days you want a quick little read. Lady Maybe's author made no secret of her love for and admiration of Jane Eyre. And that's what this book is: A diet cola fan-fic of Jane Eyre.

I mean no offense to the author, and I'm not trying to bash the book in any way. It's competently-written and easy-to-read, but it's a surface-deep book. The villains are properly two-dimensional, the good characters are properly saintly, and the heroine has little enough personality that she becomes a serviceable blank slate for the reader to immerse themselves into.

However, even with those recommendations, this book left me unsatisfied. Rather than serving as historical fiction this felt more like historical fantasy. I never felt like we were in Regency England. The language was bland, and felt very modern for all that it avoided any modern slang. And while the author described clothing and rooms and manners, no one behaved in a realistic fashion.

** Spoilers **

The fact that Lady Maybe had an illegitimate child caused as much scandal as if she'd worn the wrong shoes. The fact that she impersonated a member of the peerage was shrugged off after a token trial that carried no emotional weight and took up less than half a chapter. And we were told that our heroine and Sir John were in love in such a perfunctory manner that I had to read the paragraph twice to make sure I'd read it correctly.

** /Spoiler **

All in all this book failed for me. Blandly inoffensive, it missed the Regency England sense of language and manners so completely that it became a fantasy novel rather than fiction. There was no romance in this book, just the author telling us two people were in love because she was unable to write them as two people who were.

I do not recommend it.
