Kurzbeschreibung

Chloe and Gil are lifelong friends, but when a notice of their engagement mysteriously appears in the London papers they are outraged - and determined to escape the trap. Unfortunately, breaking their trumped-up betrothal proves trickier than either of them had bargained for.

"... as charming and sweet as a snowflake made of cotton candy ... I heartily recommend FALLING FOR CHLOE." -- All About Romance

Synopsis

Gil and Cloe are lifelong friends, but Gil's mom sees more to the relationship than companionship and nudges the two toward romance.

A sudden rainstorm forces Gil and Chloe to spend the night in a nearby cottage. Then someone places a notice of their engagement in the newspaper, and the pair must seek a way to end their engagement that will not damage their reputations. Since Chloe wishes never to marry, she plans to release Gil from his obligations. Gil, however, doesn't want to saddle Chloe with the reputation of being a jilt. Besides, when Chloe comes to London with a new wardrobe and finds herself surrounded by admirers, Gil is struck by the thought that she would be the perfect wife for him. How frustrating that she seems to be attracted to the same rakehell ladies' man that is destroying his sister's marriage!
On her part, Chloe is beginning to look at Gil as more than an old pal as well, but doesn't believe he reciprocates, so she sets about trying to help her friend--Gil's somewhat addlepated sister--save her marriage. Tish has taken up with one of the smoothest rakes around in an attempt to make her husband jealous, but only succeeds in driving the two of them further apart. In an attempt to prove the rake's true character to her friend, Chloe flirts with him herself, but finds herself way out of her league with this practiced seducer.
In the end, it is up to Gil and Tish's very wise mother to set things to rights with these two troubled pairs. A delightful Regency romp for anyone with a romantic soul.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Traditional Regency 7. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
One of my favourite modern authors, I normally have a book shelf of books I haven't quite read yet that get put aside when Diane Farr brings out a new title. Interesting characters, and good dialog, the plot revolves around a couple of quite reasonable misunderstandings. The absolute purist might find the odd word from more modern times in the dialog but overall reasonably accurate.
From the cover of the signet paperback edition....
Dashing Sylvester "Gil" Gilliland would no more think of ravishing-much less marrying-his comely childhood friend Chloe than he would his own sister. But Gil's mother happily sees more to their bond than either yet realizes. And when the two innocents are caught in a deceptively compromising situation, she wastes no time in using it to her advantage-and theirs....
Soon enough, the pair find themselves no less than engaged-and no less than panicked at the very idea. But in a case of mother knows best, what seems a tender trap may free two stubborn hearts....

4.0 von 5 Sternen A light and gentle story but rather derivative 21. Juni 2006
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Falling for Chloe" is a Regency romance in a traditional mould. Very traditional - if you've read Georgette Heyer's "Cotillion" you have really already read this story.

Chloe is a young and lively girl who has known Gilly, her neighbour, most of her life and they are the best of friends. However, after an unfortunate experience where they get caught out in the rain and end up spending the night in a local hut their engagement is announced - much to the horror of both. However, they go along with it in order for Chloe to experience a season in London and to hopefully find a way out of the engagement which doesn't embarrass either of them too much.

In London Chloe finds herself drawn to Lord Rival who is flirting outrageously with Gilly's pregnant wife. Chloe finds herself trying to deflect the attention of Lord Rival away from Tish, Gilly's sister, by focusing it on herself; after all, she's what he's looking for - a rich heiress. This is a multi point of view story so we learn a little about the background of Lord Rival, that he's almost broke and does need to marry an heiress but can't quite muster up the enthusiasm to change his dissolute way of life. I was surprised how much we learned about him as in some ways he wasn't such an important character as some of the others - I discover that she's written a subsequent book, "The Fortune Hunter", with Lord Rival as the hero so I expect she was setting him up in this book.

Gilly is the ideal man about town who, apart from telling his friends that the engagement is a sham, behaves very well towards Chloe and eventually becomes very possessive. When it looks like Chloe's heart has been stolen by Lord Rival he comes to understand his own feelings for Chloe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A comedic romance in the style of Georgette Heyer 4. Dezember 2000
Von Dr W. Richards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Diane Farr is excellent at writing couples who have no idea that they're in love with each other, even when everyone around can see that they're in love. In this book, Gil and Chloe have known each other for years. They're the best of friends, but have never seen each other in any other light. Until one night they're stranded together in a cottage. Although both protest that nothing happened, suddenly a notice of their engagement appears in the newspapers.
Gil can't jilt Chloe. Chloe doesn't want to humiliate Gil. So they agree to carry on for a while, and when they realise that Gil's (married) sister is being pursued by a rake, Chloe decides to pretend that the engagement is real in order to encourage the rake to flirt with her too.
Farr makes excellent use of jealousy in this book; there are some wonderful scenes in which Gil sees Chloe with Lord Rival and realises just what his feelings for his childhood friend are. But he still has the major problem that Chloe, for very good reasons, has no wish to marry...
There is a very well-written secondary plot - which is one reason why I found this book reminiscent of a Heyer (another is the extremely well-drawn cast of cameo and secondary characters). Gil's sister and her husband are well-drawn and Farr makes us sympathise with them in their difficulties. Gil's mother, who appears near the end, is also a wonderful character!
And, just to make the Heyer comparison even clearer, Farr has actually set this story in one of Heyer's books! Who else recognised Alverstoke and his sister, from 'Frederica', and recognised the ball Chloe attended as being the one Alverstoke threw for his cousin Chloe and Frederica's younger sister?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and amusing 8. Juni 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I definitely liked this book. The characters were amusing - at times (especially the ending), I found myself laughing at their interactions. And I must admit it was a great change not to have to deal with the usual sexual intonations (girl meets boy, boy and girl feel incredible sex appeal at first sight, etc), at least not between the primary protagonists. In fact, I very much liked the basis of the story of love on a steady and strong friendship, overall.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Wishing I could rate it higher 23. Januar 2004
Von S. Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Farr definitely writes with the flavor of Heyer, and the story starts out with great promise. Unfortunately, the more I read, the more I was disenchanted by it.
Chloe is supposed to be vibrant, independent, and innocent; more often, she comes across as ridiculously naive and reckless, lacking in common sense. I want to like to her, and at times succeed, but she can be so hare-brained! She often longs for a man to take the burden off her shoulders; rightly so, since she usually makes a mess of it. However, her failure to recognize Gil's growing romantic feelings, her conflicting responses to Lord Rival, and her concern for her sister-in-law are well done.
Gil, her best friend, is a lovely young man who is almost too perfect. His greatest fault is a tendency to let Chloe run wild (and roughshod over him). Some of his finest moments come when he puts his foot down. Although Chloe obviously needs him, I almost felt that he was too good for her.
The sister-in-law is irresponsible and annoying, while her husband receives most of the sympathy in their troubled marriage. Thankfully, Tish & Gil's mother saves the day; she's an interesting character, but she did something totally wrong in society's eyes while being presented as the paragon of social mores. Also odd is the "fact" that she and her husband have a wonderful marriage (and he's a wonderful man), but the reader never sees Sir Walter.
The most interesting character, however, is the "villain," Lord Rival. The dashing rogue is the most complex character in the book: jaded, bored, not particularly praiseworthy, but he has begun to lament his life and his choices. There's a depth to his character that is missing from the others. He vacillates too readily between these two aspects of his character, though, and eventually just walks out of the book. I'd love to read a story about him and an equally complex heroine.
Sometimes the wording is stilted (too many uses of "one" for example -- one can do what one......) Sometimes the historical social context is faulty in order to further the plot. And I cannot for the life of me figure out why Gil's friends are his friends; they seem to have nothing in common with him.
It's a nice story that I wanted to like more than I actually did. As I read, I just became more disappointed. I'm not sure I'll be happy with the rating I'm choosing simply because I'm so conflicted about the book. I suppose if you like simplicity and flagrant historical/social errors don't make you want to hurl the book across the room, you'll like it better than I did.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful light read 31. August 2010
Von Book lover -Philadelphia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A delightful book, with humor and believable situations. I agree with another reviewer that Gil's casual language is odd, even irritating, but he is such a positive person in other ways that it is minor.

I did love the deus ex machina nature of Lady Gilliland. She reminded me of the father who appears in several Loretta Chase books and serves as a secret matchmaker for each of his sons. A really delightful bit of humor and showing that the older generation knows better.
