First Line Friday #30

Friday, July 28, 2017



We are almost to the end of July, which means school starting, and football season! Yeah! From the moment football season ends I'm ready for it to start over, especially college. This week I'm going to feature Jane of Austen: A Novel of Sweet Tea and Sensibility. I am itching to start this but have other books in line first.




About the book:

Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.
But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.
While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas.
In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn't so far away.

"So you see," Johnathon explained, "what you've been paying as a lease for your little tea shop -- it's well beneath market value."
