Thalia had completed a very prestigious school for ladies. Her father was a third son and a professor who taught young nobles. However he was get tips old and forgetful so Tall a was going to take a position as governess. Unfortunately the home in which he had been teaching only were giving them room and board rather than lay. The family were nit really quality and they could no longer stay there. They were headed to London as Thalia hoped to find a position to provide for herself and her father. There was nothing along the way and then her father was injured. She also picked up two children whom a couple, not their parents, were trying to sell. Her father stayed with a pardon with a library as her father loved to read. A Lord met Thalia and began to pursue her. He was a rake and she had to flee him. It seemed that she had to set down a number of men with an eye on her who wished to take advantage of her.

She tutored a company of actors, made costumes and props. The show was a buying the Lord bought the theatre. She faces each problem with wit, courage and grace. Read the story to find out how she managed and how it ends. Happy reading.

Mixed bag. The heroine was fairly well described and fleshed out, but the hero was shallowly depicted and not well developed at all. Could have been alot better if he had a little more history. No real reason to like him. Hmm.

Very nice...wish it were much longer...very abrupt ending, like pulling a string bag closed, with a sharp jerk...too rattles along splendidly until the last pages...maybe the author tired of it? Or her publisher asked for it? Until then, a fun read!

Ms Chater's books are good as far as character, plot and development, and I enjoy them as well becasue there are not a lot of sex pages I have to skip in order to read the story

I really enjoy these books by Elizabeth Chater. I especially appreciate the lack of explicit sexual scenes. The only problem was that there were quite a few typos throughout the ebook. I wonder who is responsible for such sloppy editing?

Love all of Chater's books. Story line has twists and turns plus a good love story set in the time of 1800s
"A Delicate Situation" by Elizabeth Chater (1982, Ivy Books) is a clean Georgian fiction, and is also available in the third "Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection." I immensely enjoyed all eight books within the first two collections, and now consider Elizabeth Chater to be one of my favorite authors. "A Delicate Situation" was an excellent story, apart from the romance, which I felt was lacking. I think it’s relevant to know that Chater wrote a sequel, "The Reformed Rake" a couple of years later, which shows this story’s heroine as a married woman through times of bliss as well as times of troubles.

4 stars

"A Delicate Situation" is an enjoyable novel about the very admirable Miss Thalia Temple, daughter of a professor. Tally has finished her schooling at an institution for prestigious young ladies, even though she is not wealthy. She is on her way to a country home where Tally’s father resides as a tutor because she has been granted the governess position in that same household.

What I liked:

*I just loved Tally. She is intelligent, kind, and resourceful. She’s just awesome! Things frequently don’t go as planned for her, and yet she is a plucky character with creative ways to get through tough situations. I was rooting for her all the way.

I admit that I may be biased because this novel is a governess story, at least to begin with. My love of governesses (in literature) probably stems from enjoying "The Sound of Music" and "Jane Eyre" so frequently while growing up.

What I didn’t like:

*I was rather dissatisfied with the “romance” portion of this book. The reader can expect to see VERY little of the hero in this story. Granted, this is not unheard of in historical romance novels. Some storylines call for a long separation of the hero and heroine, and when the story is written mainly from the heroine’s point of view, it is natural not to see much of the hero!

It isn’t just this aspect, however. This seems like a case of instalove, unfortunately, and it seemed inconsistent with the characters of Thalia Temple and that of the hero. (I’m deliberately neglecting to introduce the hero!) However, I feel compelled to mention that these issues are appropriately perpetuated in the sequel, "The Reformed Rake."


I’d recommend this book to those who like Regency/Georgian fiction/light romance. I’ve already read the second and third books in collection #3 and have started reading the fourth. I don’t intend to stop reading Elizabeth Chater any time soon!
