As a Congressman’s daughter in Washington, D.C., 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.
*I received a free advanced reader’s copy of this book from Arthur A. Levine at Book Con. This did not influence my review of this book in anyway. This is an honest review of the novel as I saw it. This novel will be released on September 27, 2016.*
I’m a huge fan of Jane Austen retellings so when I heard this was a retelling of Emma I knew I had to read this book. Kay Honeyman does an amazing job of putting her own twist on this classic romance and I absolutely loved it. Interference takes place in a small town in Texas and the main character Kate is a congressman’s daughter that thinks she knows it all. Just like Emma she tries to play matchmaker for her friends, while her new friend, Hunter, tries to tell her to stay out of everyone’s business. Naturally, Kate doesn’t listen.
Add in your typical high school hijinks, football games, and political campaigns and this book was a roller coaster of drama, laughs, and romance. I absolutely loved the characters in this book and Hunter gave me full on heart eyes. For anyone that doesn’t really like Emma because they find Emma annoying you will like Kate more than Emma. I found Kate to be very relatable and even though a lot of the time I would think, “Kate, no!” it was hilarious seeing her make so many mistakes.
If you’re looking for a cute and quick romance that will give you Friday Night Lights feels, you should definitely pick up Interference. You won’t regret it.
