Sense & Sensibility ~ A Latter-day Tale
As if it wasn’t bad enough to be getting food from Church welfare, I had to meet one of the Ferreros—and a good-looking Ferrero, at that.
Elly Goodwin, a brilliant programmer, is so desperate for a job that she takes one from her ex-boyfriend—the same man who put her family out of business. Then she meets Ethan Ferrero, who seems too good to be true. But Elly is far too sensible to unexpectedly fall in love—especially with her ex’s brother-in-law.
But when Elly’s sister, Maren, dates the wrong guy, Elly must intercede before Maren’s passion clouds her common sense. Together, Elly and Maren must learn that a mixture of sense and sensibility is the perfect recipe for love.
Fans of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility will love this modern retelling of the classic romance novel.
I picked up Sense & Sensibility by Rebecca H. Jamison on a whim. This is a fun read and I could not wait to see how it ended. The story flips back and forth between Maren and Elly's point of view, which I enjoyed. The happily every after is perfect and I am looking forward to picking up more of Ms. Jamison's books.
