Spotlight and Giveaway: The One that Got Away

A modern retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion, where a young woman comes face-to-face with a lost love, proving that the one that got away is sometimes the one you get back. Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren’t.

Ten years later, Ruby’s single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There’s barely time for a trip to England for her little sister’s wedding. And there’s certainly not time to think about seeing Ethan there for the first time in years.

But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can’t help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago. Because there’s nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past…


Melissa Pimentel grew up in a small town in Massachusetts in a house without cable and therefore much of her childhood was spent watching 1970s British comedy on public television. These days, she spends much of her time reading in the various pubs of Stoke Newington and engaging in a long-standing emotional feud with their disgruntled cat, Welles. She works in publishing. Visit Melissa at her website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Thanks to St. Martin's Press, we have one copy of The One That Got Away to share with a lucky reader!

That's a tough one for me. I never read any of the classic books. I read kids books (which I don't even remember the titles) when I was a kid and then just stopped reading for a very long time. When I started reading again, it was Harlequin romances and then I moved to other kinds of books, but they were always newer books. I know, I shouldn't call myself a real reader when I didn't read the classics.

The first book that came to mind was Little Women. I see Melanie had the same idea.

I'd like to see a modern Cinderella type story.

So many of Jane Austen's have been done already - perhaps some of Shakespeare's comedy romances like 'Much Ado About Nothing'
