Revising Romance

Revising Romance

by Melanie Dugan




An editor in the deadline-driven world of book publishing, thirty-something Elaine Salter faces more than her share of challenges. She has just inherited the job of editing best-selling author Spencer Stone's long-awaited novel. When she discovers that the book is a disaster, it's up to Elaine to salvage it. Revising Romance, a contemporary comedy of manners, offers a wry take on the double-bind of working women's lives in the twenty-first century. Elaine, a single mom, is in withdrawal from emotional attachments. However, while fact-checking Stone's novel, she meets Nathan Marks, a local antiquarian bookseller. Elaine finds herself drawn to Nathan, but has trouble interpreting his signals. As she assesses her expectations - emotional, financial and romantic - Elaine learns that romance isn't dead. It's alive and well and full of surprises.
