  1. Greetings!

    My follow-up novel, "A Modern Day Sense & Sensibility" was published late December 2013, and I would be so honored if you would feature/review my book on your lovely website!

    You may have heard of my first novel, "A Modern Day Persuasion" published 2011. I understand you recently reviewed Joanna Trollope's modern take on S&S, so I'd love to get your opinion on mine and how it differs. I am a Christian author, so you can rest assured there is NO mature material in my novel.

    Please let me know either way - and I can provide you with a paperback or kindle version of my novel. Thank you!

    Looking forward to your response,
    Kaitlin Saunders

    A short description of my book can be read below:

    After their father’s untimely death, Ellie and Marianne Dashwood must suffer the loss of both their beloved parent and their fortune when, together with their mother and younger sister, they find themselves at the mercy of their half brother and his greedy wife, Francil. Ellie temporarily finds solace in a new friendship with Francil’s brother, Edward. But as their connection deepens and Edward fails to make the next move, Ellie becomes increasingly confused. Eventually Francil’s manipulations become unbearable and the Dashwood ladies are forced to relocate to a dingy apartment building in Portland, Oregon, owned by their quirky cousin and his busybody mother-in-law, Mrs. Jennings. Slowly, the women begin adapting to their newfound meager lifestyle. While cutting coupons and watching their budget, the Dashwoods welcome the chance to make new acquaintances in their new town. One such acquaintance is Mrs. Jennings’s friend Brandon, a wealthy thirty-something hotel entrepreneur who is immediately infatuated with Marianne. Turned off by their relatively large age gap, Marianne turns her attention to the suspiciously perfect Jim Willoughby. But just as things start heating up between them, she learns that the situation may not be exactly as it seems.

    As the sisters struggle through secrets, illness, and broken promises, Ellie and Marianne must find the answer: Does love really conquer all? Find out in Saunders’s romantic rendition of a beloved classic.

  2. Really love this list! I have really similar reading taste!
