Today, I'm reviewing Special Delivery by Elaine Raco Chase, award-winning romance author and writing teacher. Ms. Chase has a considerable backlist of romance and mystery novels as well as nonfiction books.
She's now making her backlist available to ebook readers so I think we can look forward to some "good reads."
Last November, I interviewed Ms. Chase on this blog about the writing classes she teaches.

Roxanne Murdoch, CEO of Greetings and Salutations, is forced, due to a shortage of employees during the holidays, to deliver a "belly-gram" herself. Since her company guarantee is akin to the post office's famous motto, she can't not deliver the theatrical message to the newest executive VP Bram Tyler.
A howling blizzard forces Roxanne and Bram to ride out the winter storm in his deserted bank building. Staying warm and entertained? Not a problem for the two who are well-matched intellectually. Staying out of each other's arms? Big problem.
The biggest question of all? What happens when the storm blows itself out? Will they stay together or go their separate ways?
If you like to read the humorous banter between a man and woman that's reminiscent of the best of filmdom's romantic comedies, you'll like Special Delivery. Ms. Chase has a real gift for presenting heroines who are intelligent women and who can hold their own with any man. Roxanne can out-think and outsmart just about any guy, but the handsome and personable Bram is just as clever.
Throw in Roxanne's stories about her dear departed Aunt Mathilda, queen of the burlesque world in her youth, and you'll wish Ms. Chase had written a book devoted to Aunt Mathilda too.
Special Delivery was originally published years ago by Dell's Candlelight Ecstasy Romance, but don't let that make you think this story is old hat. Roxanne and Bram's story is one that never gets old. If it did, there wouldn't be any more romance novels published. Ever.
The book will amuse and entertain you and make you want Ms. Chase's next book as soon as it's available.

A good book is a little vacation from the cares of life.
