Amazon Summary

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 fiancĂ©e 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.

My Review

Sense and Sensibility is my favorite Jane Austin novel, so I jumped at the chance to review this book, also being a book of Brittany's, I knew it would be a great book, and I was not disappointed.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.  I loved how the book resembled Sense and Sensibility, and how it also had a beautiful story to tell of its own.  I loved the similarities  between the two books.  Brittany's characters were pretty close to perfect.  Emily took control of a tough situation with the loss of her parents.  She is her younger brother Bryce's caretaker and manager of her sister Annie's acting career, all while she is fighting feelings for Joel and deciding what is best for her family.  Whether they are to move to Utah and complete up her deceased father's dream, or stay in LA.  I loved so many things about Joel, especially when he sees Utah for the first time.  The author's descriptions made me appreciate my home state even more.  I connected with the characters and the book was very enjoyable.

5 out of 5 stars.  I can't wait for more from this author.
