Freeze on search/replace regex

Trying to remove Author's Notes from the end of chapters using this regex:

\<p class\=\"calibre3\"\>*\<\/p\> \<hr class\=\"calibre1\"\/\>[\s\S]*(?=\<\/body\>)

I'm leaving the replace field blank as I just want to erase this content. "Find" successfully selects the text I want. When I press "replace" the editor window freezes and must be force closed. Not sure what is happening. It seems like valid regex to me.

Nope

* or + are repetition QUANTIFIERS for the preceding pattern
* is 0 or more occurrences
+ is 1 or more occurrences

.+? is my favorite pattern
the ? makes it less greedy
