In Texas, you don’t mess with football and you certainly don’t mess with the quarter back. This is but one bump in the road for Kay Honeyman’s character in her newest book Interference. On October 11th, Honeyman will be joining us at The WD for a book presentation. So, allow us to interfere in your day by introducing you to a great new book and its witty author.
As a Congressman’s daughter in Washington, D.C., 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 read for fans of Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Eulberg, or Sarah Dessen.
Kay Honeyman’s roots in football and Texas run deep: Her grandfather coached high school and college teams in the sport, while Kay was born in Fort Worth, attended Baylor University in Waco, and now lives in Dallas. Her first novel, The Fire Horse Girl, received a starred review from Booklist magazine and was nominated for three state awards.
