Why I liked this title:

Have you ever had to choose between two bad options? Goose Girl, known as such for her twelve feathered friends, is locked in a tower until she makes her own wedding gown and decides if she will marry King Claudio the Cruel or Prince Edmund of Dorloo. Not that she wants to marry either one. Alexandria Aurora Fortunato was given an unexpected gift by an old woman that has made her the object of each man’s affection. Although Goose Girl manages to escape –- with the help of her geese –- she falls into threatening circumstances time and time again; all the while, realizing there is magic within her geese and love within her own heart. Goose Chase is an adventurous, suspenseful, fun, romantic read.
