As a Congressman's daughter in Washington, DC, 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.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed reading Interference. I thought that it was such a cute read! And let’s be honest I will read anything (and I mean anything) that is paired or reminiscent of Jane Austen. I love that Interference is reminiscent of Emma and I think that even though it had Emma qualities to it, it also had it’s own qualities as well. So it was still original.

I loved that it was also somewhat political. I’m not big on politics. But I love political dramas and thrillers. And to read about a girl and her very political family it was such fun! As for Kate (the main character) I liked her. I wasn’t sure if I would because in the beginning I was little iffy about her and how it kind of seemed like the world revolved around her. But trust me, she definitely changes and it was so nice to see her grow as a person.

I loved the photography/art aspect within this novel. In high school I loved the arts classes and I took as many as I possibly could and photography class was one of them. So, to read about a character who wants to go to art school and is so in love with her art was just great!

Overall, I think that Kay Honeyman did a great job with this book and I honestly cannot wait for more from her! If you’re in the mood for a YA Contemporary with some romance and art and politics, then this book is for you! 🙂

I wanted to like this so much, but honestly it just fell flat. I stumbled upon this author when looking through books in my “recommended” page on Goodreads. Her next release, The Alchemists of Loom, instantly stopped my heart and flew to my To Read list. Upon further research, I discovered her older works from […]

My Thoughts I am heavily conflicted with my feelings towards this book. As disclaimer: I LOVE this series. SJM writes incredibly entertaining, addictive story lines and develops characters that really stick with you. However, with this installment in the series, I could not get past the inconsistencies. The most frustrating to me where a few […]
