BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Sense & Second Chances by Brittany Larsen


ABOUT THE BOOK

Emily Carter is on the fast track to success when the unthinkable happens: a tragic accident claims the lives of her parents. Now Emily must set aside her dreams and raise her two younger siblings, Annie and Bryce. Emily and Annie are sisters, but that doesn't mean they are anything alike. Whereas Emily reacts to the tragedy with her characteristic stoic calm, passionate Annie spirals into depression. Just when things seem like they can't get any more difficult, Emily's older half-brother and his fiancee arrive, not to help but to claim the family home he's inherited from their parents. Without a place to call their own, Emily must take action—and fast.

When an exciting employment opportunity arises in Utah, the displaced Carters decide to build a new life in a new home. But it soon becomes clear that their future prospects will go far beyond professional as each sister is faced with an unexpected romance. Yet love is never simple, and in matters of the heart, one sister must proceed with caution while the other needs to take a leap of faith.

REVIEW

In this contemporary adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility,  Emily Carter is left to care for her younger sister and brother after her parents are killed in a plane crash.  When her older half-brother shows up to take the house that belongs to him, Emily is left wondering what to do with herself and her siblings.  When she meets the brother of her soon to be sister-in-law, she likes him immediately.  But Joel is Jewish and his family is against that changing, so Emily knows if he investigates her church (Mormon/LDS) and chooses to join that he will be losing a great deal.  Because of this Emily forces herself to give Joel up and move herself and her siblings to the ranch her father wanted to turn into an eco-friendly vacation spot.  But things take a turn for the worse when Emily's sister, Annie, gets involved an exciting but not trustworthy young man and goes off her meds.  Can Emily keep her family together and mend her broken heart or does God have other plans for her?  I quite enjoyed this story even though I knew the basic story line going in.  Making Annie an actress and Joel a Jew certainly added some interesting twists.
