About the Book
As the daughter of a well-known senator, Summer Knight is all too familiar with the nasty side of politics. She’s always stayed out of the drama, until an incident involving her fellow Mormons drives her out of her hometown—and out of the Church. What she needs is a change of scene, and sunny California seems like just the place. Enter Benson Hardy. He’s just her type—until she finds out who he is. Not only is Benson a nephew to her father’s political rival, he’s also a devout member of the Church. The last thing Summer wants is to be mixed up in politics—or religion. But Benson challenges her like no one else, asking the tough questions about her inactivity. Though their incompatibility is clear, their connection is undeniable, and soon Summer finds the embers of her faith reigniting. Just as it seems that the pair might be on the road to romance, a series of embarrassing misunderstandings—and the appearance of a handsome charmer determined to sweep Summer off her feet—knock the couple completely off course. As Summer finds herself at a crossroads, she must decide if she’s willing to set her pride aside for a shot at true love.
About the Author
Brittany Larsen may have been raised in the most Republican state in the nation, but she’s too politically fickle to commit to one party, much to the dismay of her firmly Democratic husband, Shawn. Generally, she avoids talking politics with him because she hates to lose. When not writing or avoiding politics, Brittany loves yoga—especially the hot kind—chocolate, tacos, and her three daughters. Not necessarily in that order. She tolerates her dog and running, though at time she loves them both. She lives in Orange County, California.
I absolutely LOVE Pride and Prejudice retellings and this fun new story from author Brittany Larsen is an absolute delight. Fun characters and of course the fantastic twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this is a well-written and fun story that readers are not going to want to miss! From page one readers will fall in love with the characters and Brittany’s rendition of the story. The story is funny and cute and the perfect book get away into another world. The tie in with politics is entertaining and I also love the tie in with the LDS faith. This story shows how a woman can discover her faith and true love! I would recommend this novel to fans of Jane Austen and retellings of her stories.
