Emma: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison
I have never read Emma by Jane Austen so I can't compare the two stories together. This Emma A Latter-day Tale I liked. I liked the characters, At times I smiled, could not believe that one of the characters did that. It is a fun clean read with some good points in the story. It is a LDS Novel so their are church terms or names that some might not know. It also talks about Prayer, That we can be forgiven for our sins through Jesus Christ.
Emma wants to be a life coach. She does not plan to get married for along time. She does want to find a new best friend because hers got married. She has a crush on a guy she has yet to meet.
Emma wants to help people but she makes a lot of mistakes and hurts people, but asks to be forgiven and makes amends.
Emma tries to be a matchmaker with two people in her church but it backfires and does more damage. She keeps trying when I would just want to disappear after making some of her mistakes.
I really enjoyed reading Emma: A Latter-day Tale. This is the second book of Rebecca's that I have read and have enjoyed both of them. I look forward to reading another book by her in the future.
I was given this book and asked to give honest review of it when finished by NetGalley and Cedar Fort.

Description below taken off of NetGalley.
NOT Looking for Love: Single woman (23) seeks best friend to chat on the phone, shop the clearance racks, watch chick flicks, try out messy cooking projects, and eat Dove dark chocolates.
Emma isn’t so good at the whole life-coaching thing. Her first client ended up with a broken heart and is threatening to relapse into bad habits. Now Emma has problems of her own to deal with, and they all start with one name: Justin.
Justin is her best friend, so it’s hard for Emma not to feel betrayed when she suspects he’s falling for her childhood rival. And she knows she’s losing him despite her best efforts. How is she supposed to help other people when she’s drowning in her own failures?
Fans of Jane Austen’s Emma will love this modern retelling of the classic romance novel. Fall in love with Emma’s latter-day tale of redemption, forgiveness, and the quest for true love.
