LIES JANE AUSTEN TOLD ME by Julie Wright. I love Julie not only as a person but as an author. She has such a fun way of writing that wraps you up in the story. This book is no exception. And I loved how she pulled in Jane Austen and Emma had to "break up" with her. I think we so often look for things to be exactly a certain way because of something we've seen or read, that it was good to see how someone moved past it. I loved Emma and Lucas journey and then when another player entered the field . . . it left me struggling for who I wanted Emma to end up with. Both guys were fantastic for her. It is a great read from cover to cover. I would highly recommend it.

Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she's been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So when it turns out that what her boyfriend Blake wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, only to find her job threatened when her boss brings in a consultant to help her expand the business to the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake's younger brother, Lucas.
Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate. But as perfect as Lucas seems, he clearly has his secrets. After all, there's an angry woman demanding money from him and a little girl who Lucas feels responsible for. 
Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must figure out the truth—and soon—if she wants any hope of writing her own "happily ever after" ending.
