Praise for Results May Vary
“Chase has written an incredibly charming novel about shifting from being completed by a man to becoming a whole woman. Witnessing Caro’s growth is a pleasure.”—Library Journal
“Bethany Chase writes with a realism of expression that allows readers to empathize and appreciate the characters’ personalities and frustrations. The push and pull written into interpersonal dynamics between characters feels true to life, and is best seen in Caroline’s relationship with her sister. The surprises keep readers alert and the tempo of the novel holds their attention until the very last page.”—RT Book Reviews
“This latest novel from Chase will appeal to anyone who has ever looked up to realize they define themselves by those surrounding them. Caroline’s exploration of self-discovery is a familiar one, yet Chase has a way with phrasing and a thoughtful approach that pushes this one notch above the others. . . . A good fit for fans of Emily Giffin and Kristin Hannah.”—Booklist
“An altogether addictive read . . . [Bethany] Chase creates characters a reader can truly care about [in] a novel that doles out both laughter and tears.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Relatable, engaging, and ultimately uplifting, as it explores the secrets hidden beneath the surface of a marriage that seems enviable . . . You'll root for Caroline as she struggles through heartbreak toward an unexpected new future.”—Sarah Pekkanen, author of The Perfect Neighbors
“Results May Vary is an openhearted and sweetly rendered story of lost love and found strength.”—Melissa DeCarlo, author of The Art of Crash Landing
Praise for Bethany Chase’s The One That Got Away
“An authentic and warm voice infuses this story of humor, heartbreak, and home.”—Patti Callahan Henry, author of And Then I Found You
“This perfectly paced story is full of fresh, engaging characters.”—Marisa de los Santos, author of Falling Together
About the Author
A native of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Bethany Chase headed to Williams College for an English degree and somehow came out the other side an interior designer. When she’s not writing or designing, you can usually find her in a karaoke bar. She lives with her lovely husband and occasionally psychotic cat in Brooklyn, three flights up.

Caroline has been with her high school sweetheart Adam for half her life. They are so in love with one another and know many little details about their personality quirks. But when Caroline discovers that her husband has had an affair with a man, she questions her entire marriage and relationship with Adam. In spending time apart from other another, Caroline has to redefine herself and her life as a single entity instead of a couple. In her newly found liberation, she attains a new perspective on those close to her and what they mean to her.
A quick, well written narrative that entertains its reader for a rather relaxing read. Based on just the right circumstances and a lack of communication (which always frustrates me to no end!), the plot is rather weak, but is buoyed by the complexities of relationships and internal struggles that Chase weaves in the narrative. I wasn’t too drawn in to the characters or the story, despite the intrigue that could surround a woman whose husband had an affair with a man and how she can remake herself, because I didn’t find the characters too compelling or the outcome of the new relationships all that surprising.
Overall, I’d give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Results May Vary is nicely written and deals with an issue that many women and experience every day. I found Results May Vary a slow paced novel. Caroline does the usual post-betrayal things of evaluating what went wrong, what could have caused it, etc. (but it did not feel real). Caroline then takes off her wedding rings and proceeds with her “new” life (whiplash). Caroline just did not come alive for me (I found her to be a very self-absorbed person). We actually get very little information on Adam. More is revealed about him near the end of the novel (mostly he comes across as a jerk). I am not quite sure how these two stayed married (they did not seem to have much in common and even lived apart during the week). The more interesting character was Ruby, Caroline’s sister. She embraced life and lived it (even started her own business when she got fired). The action does not pick up until the latter portion of the story (the last 20% or so). I’m afraid that I found Results May Vary predictable. I was hoping for something different or unique in this book that would make it stand out from the crowd. I give Results May Vary 3 out of 5 stars (it was okay, but not for me). I really wanted to like this book, but instead I had a hard time finishing it. While this book was not for me, other readers have enjoyed it and you may as well.
I received a complimentary copy of Results May Vary in exchange for an honest evaluation. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
