The California Dashwoods by Lisa Henry Release Blitz


Make a new future. Choose your true family. Know your own heart.

When Elliott Dashwood’s father dies, leaving his family virtually penniless, it’s up to Elliott to do what he’s always done: be the responsible one. Now isn’t the right time for any added complications. So what the hell is he doing hooking up with Ned Ferrars? It’s just a fling, right?

Elliott tries to put it behind him when the family makes a fresh start in California, and if he secretly hopes to hear from Ned again, nobody else needs to know. While his mom is slowly coming to terms with her grief, teenage Greta is more vulnerable than she’s letting on, and Marianne—romantic, reckless Marianne—seems determined to throw herself headfirst into a risky love affair. And when Elliott discovers the secret Ned’s been keeping, he realizes that Marianne isn’t the only one pinning her hopes on a fantasy.

All the Dashwoods can tell you that feelings are messy and heartbreak hurts. But Elliott has to figure out if he can stop being the sensible one for once, and if he’s willing to risk his heart on his own romance.

A modern retelling of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.

Ruthie☆☆☆
Anyone who has read Austen's Sense and Sensibility will recognise this modernisation of the tale, but actually anyone at all will enjoy the story. I am not always a big fan of rewrites, but there are enough twists to make this a unique reading experience.

There are elements which I am not convinced translate well to the modern day. In fact, the behaviour of the upper class in Regency England switched to the 'royalty' of New York does leave a few issues of disbelief, even if Henry and Abby were bohemian hippies. Elliott's role in the family is also a strange one, although I loved being inside his head – it felt like the transfer to a male in the role of sensible did work well in certain aspects more than others. Interestingly, Colonel Brandon was a delight.

I am looking forward to seeing what others think of this book, I am glad that I read it.




Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters.

Lisa lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn't know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she's too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.

She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.

She shares her house with too many cats, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.
