Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge

Jane Of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge

I'm actually not a big fan of Jane Austen. I've never even read Sense and Sensibility (on which this book is apparently based). But I loved Jane of Austin.

Celia, Jane, and Margot Woodward have faced a lot of tragedy in their young lives. After their mother dies in a car accident, their father is fired from his position in finance due to some questionable choices - choices that leave him on the run and his daughters on their own. Armed with a trust fund left behind by their mother, the girls start a tea salon in their beloved San Francisco. But when new owners demand more in rent than the girls can pay, they're forced to pack up their tea plants and move. Eventually, they settle with family in Austin, Texas where new adventures await.

I greatly enjoyed this story. I loved the dynamic between the sisters, the love triangle element, and the humorous witticisms sprinkled throughout. The storyline was interesting and moved along well. The end was semi-cheesy, but I like a little cheese now and then. :-)

This was another one of those strange books that I think is probably classified as inspirational fiction, and is very clean, but makes almost no mention of God.

(I received an advance copy of this book via Bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.)
