This is a well done modernizationvariation of Persuasion There s a definite parallel to the original and the changes make the storyline fit neatly into a contemporary setting The character names are altered just enough that those familiar with Jane Austen s work will know exactly who they represent My favorite is Captain Benwick who becomes Ben Wick tee hee Their personalities are not identical to their Austen counterparts although there are definite similarities The story is set in Charleston South Carolina Elliot Lynch Anne Elliot is working desperately to keep Engagements afloat which is an events planning service that her mother started Mrs Kelly Lynch died years ago and Elliot s father Walter Sir Walter is soon to retire while her older sister Libby Elizabeth Elliot is impossible to work with The two don t seem to comprehend the seriousness of Engagement s financial condition and are interested in chasing after Mrs Dalryrmple s high profile social events than helping with the daily challenges of wedding planning that Elliot handles When Elliot s cousin Marissa Mary Musgrove and husband Chase Charles Musgrove offer her a big advance and payoff to film Engagements as part of a reality program about wedding planners called The Marrying Type Elliot reluctantly agrees recognizing there s no other way to pay off the overdue bills Filming has already started when Sadie Warner Sophie Croft contacts Elliot about planning her lavish wedding to Adam Crawford Admiral Croft Elliot is torn because this would be another financial windfall for Engagements but she s concerned about how much contact she will have with Sadie s brother Eric Warner Frederick Wentworth who she hasn t seen in years after a bitter break up She and Eric fell in love and were briefly engaged while they were in college together but he dropped out to move to California and set up a software company selling the original programming he developed He encouraged Elliot to join him but her father sister and Rosalyn Russell Lady Russell a close family friend convinced her it would be foolish to take such a chance with her future Eric is now very successful wealthy and well known nationally while Elliot is scraping to keep the family business and home intactThe plot moves on from there with several wonderful scenes of potential wedding disasters that Elliot has to manage The best is when Rhett Smyth Mrs Smith comes to town He is a good friend to Elliot apologetically gay and his snappy repartee adds a lot to the last uarter of the book The author s writing is very very good The set ups for TV scenes are interesting devices that help push the plot along All the characterizations are really well done You can feel Elliot s sense of panic as her difficulties pile up Heloise Louisa is every wedding planner s nightmare of a bridesmaid but she adds to the comic relief at times so things don t get too heavy and Smyth amps up the humor once he shows up The reignited romance between Eric and Elliot is also well done with enough misunderstanding to provide a bit of extra angst There s lots of chemistry between them I also appreciate that at the end the reader comes to understand about why Walter acts as he does though you re left free to hate Libby who s pretty nasty from beginning to endIt doesn t seem as though many Jane Austen Fan Fiction readers have discovered this book yet and I m not sure why that is I couldn t find a single misstep in the entire story Highly recommend
