Publisher Description

Emma Shaw is a modern woman with a classic problem. 

Eight years ago, Emma put her career and family above her own needs. She's cut out the man she loves, is exhausted from carrying the emotional load for her family, and her dream career as an editor is on the brink of disaster. Now she has to face the man she gave up eight years ago in order to keep her career.

When her ex's book launch is in crisis, her bosses coerce Emma to step in to save it even if that's no longer her job. Forced to spend a month on the road, Emma has too much time to think about her regrets but also discover new opportunities to make the life she thought she would have, including a second chance with Fredrick.

If she can run her life as well as she runs this book tour, she can save her career, be with the man she loves, and maybe tell her family where to stick it. 

Modern Persuasion is the charming first book in the 21st Century Austen romance series. If you like classics made contemporary, forced proximity, reunited lovers, workplace romance, and road trips, then you'll adore Sara Marks' lighthearted modernization of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Could have been better

The irony is that this book is mostly written in the first person by a character who is an editor; unfortunately, the book was either not edited or was edited by someone with a woeful lack of knowledge regarding English grammar.
Example: A character was “Laying in bed” when the proper phrase is “lying in bed”.
There were instances in which the incorrect pronoun was used in reference to a male or female character.
Several times, I decided the author had mistakenly used a word that did not mean what she thought it did.
The plot was interesting, but the glaring grammatical errors greatly detracted from my enjoyment of the story.
