an all-new emotional standalone from Staci Hart is LIVE!
Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you another installment of the Austen Series, inspired by the works of Jane Austen, with a heartfelt contemporary retelling of Sense and Sensibility.
When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.
Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.
See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.
What wasn’t on her list: Greg Brandon. And just when she thinks she’s figured out where to put him, everything changes. In the span of a few staggering heartbeats, she finds herself her caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.
List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.
Annie, our heroine may be physically weak but on the inside she is strong. It is amazing to see how she blossoms and even though you want to pinch her sometimes and ask her whether she really, really doesn't understand...well....understand, most of the time I was just smiling goofily and was humbled by her strength and her ability to deal with the rather shitty cards dealt to her by life. You totally understand the protectiveness of those around her because even though you understand her need to prove to herself and the others that she can do things, that she can live, you are afraid for her.
At first sight, Greg may not look like the perfect hero to our heroine but despite that, you feel the sparks, you feel their connection and when everything changes and things become ... difficult (remember Sense and Sensibility...) you just want to scream. I loved him even more then than before because it becomes clear that Annie's happiness and her wellbeing are the only thing that really matters to him. Even if that would mean that he can't be with her.
When things get really rough it is Greg who is there for her - will that be enough to convince Annie that he is the right one for her?
I loved A Thousand Letters and I loved A Little Too Late but this book topped them both. Annie and her strength, her resilience in the face of her open heart and her father's death, Greg, who is always there when he is needed, who is always the one to rely on, those two very quickly found their way into my heart.
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely! This book is simply amazing and I can't wait till Elle's book The Sound of Silence comes out!
