YOUNG ADULT FICTION / Romance / Contemporary
Signature humor and heart-pounding romance meet Pride and Prejudice in Lisa Brown Roberts’s latest romantic comedy.No one knows why Julian Adair left his fancy boarding school to complete his senior year at Longbourn High School, and he’s not about to tell anyone - especially not the bossy Abby Bennet who runs the school service hours project with an iron fist.

Abby is determined to humble the arrogant newcomer via his service project, and he’s just as determined to dodge the requirement. Julian came home for an important reason, and the last thing he needs is a pesky do-gooder interfering in his life.

Tempers flare and misunderstandings escalate between Julian and Abby, and when a wave of robberies rattles the town of Meryton- casting suspicion on Julian- Abby isn’t sure what to believe about the enigmatic newcomer.

Julian loves to fly solo in his beloved Cessna, but for the first time in his life he considers the benefits of a co-pilot...especially one as irritating-and appealing- as Abby.

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life's painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way. She lives in Colorado in a house full of books, boys, four-legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.

4 stars: "Lisa Brown Roberts has a done an excellent job of making Laurel's voice that of a young lady with little work experience.
