Friday Night Lights meets Jane Austen's Emma in this wonderful novel about a big election, big games, the big state of Texas, and a little romance.
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.
Terrifically funny and sweetly romantic, with whip-crack dialogue and a wise perspective on growing up, Interference is the perfect next listen for fans of Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Eulberg, or Sarah Dessen.

"much better than I thought it'd be"
but it's just because I'm not used to this genre. Wonderfully narrated, written very well. I recommend it.
"Mind blowing narration"
once I heard that this book was a retelling of one of my favorite books ( Emma by Jane Austen) I knew I had to read it as soon as possible and it was a really fun ride for me .. I enjoyed the story line and the similarities and originality of the story, I liked the characters and I felt they were so natural and they had so much depth I couldn't help but to love them .. the dynamics in the dialogues was amazing and most importantly .. the narration was EXCELLENT .. she is really talented and I'm really curios to pick up more of titles she narrated because she have such a wide range of voices .. I do recommend this book if you like Emma :)
This book is a lot like Emma. It's Smart, witty, and educational. It is very entertaining the entire way through. Even though I know how Emma ends, I couldn't wait to read the next chapter. Was sad when it was over. Great book!
