Today's First Impressions Week video is a two-fer! I'm taking a look at an upcoming contemporary that's being billed as Friday Night Lights meets Jane Austen's Emma (woot!), and a contemporary meets historical romance set in "The Last Best Place," otherwise known as Montana.
Take a listen to quick excerpts and my thoughts on both books below; at least one of them I think is going to be a real winner, and I can't wait to explore it further!

352 pages
Expected publication: September 27th 2016 by Arthur A. Levine Books
Friday Night Lights meets Jane Austen's Emma in this wonderful novel about a big election, big games, the big state of Texas, and a little romance.

As a Congressman's daughter in Washington, DC, Kate Hamilton is good at getting what she wants -- what some people might call "interfering." But when her family moves to West Texas so her dad can run in a special election, Kate encounters some difficulties that test all her political skills. None of her matchmaking efforts go according to plan. Her father's campaign gets off to a rough start. A pro tip for moving to Texas: Don't slam the star quarterback's hand in a door. And whenever Kate messes up, the irritatingly right (and handsome) Hunter Price is there to witness it. But Kate has determination and a good heart, and with all her political savvy -- and a little clever interference -- she'll figure out what it takes to make Red Dirt home.

Terrifically funny and sweetly romantic, with whip-crack dialogue and a wise perspective on growing up, Interference is the perfect next read for fans of Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Eulberg, or Sarah Dessen.

Published May 31st 2016 by The Chicken House
A sweeping tale of love, legacy, and wilderness set between the present day and 1867 in the dramatic landscape of modern-day and territorial Montana.

While on a trip to Montana with her mom, British teen Hope meets local boy Cal Crow, a ranch hand. Caught in a freak accident, Hope and Cal take shelter in a cabin, where Hope makes a strange discovery in an abandoned diary. More than a hundred years earlier, another British girl--Emily--met a similar fate. Her rescuer, a horse trader named Nate. In this rugged place, both girls learn what it means to survive and to fall in love, neither knowing that their fates are intimately entwined.

  1. I can see why you were sold on Interference. I was smiling a bit just from the portion you read and it's an Emma mash-up so yay!
    But Crow Mountain has appeal. I've really been getting into the western settings and I like the city gal coming to the frontier type of thing.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
