Recently, I’ve had my eye on a book that is set to come out later this year. Pride and Prejudice is a story we all know. We all want our own Mr. Darcy. Don’t we? Well, now everyone can!


Pride and Prejudice and Pittsburgh is by Rachael Lippincott, and this is the summary you can find on the Simon and Schuster website: “Audrey Cameron has lost her spark. But after getting dumped by her first love and waitlisted at her dream art school all in one week, she has no intention of putting her heart on the line again to get it back. So when local curmudgeon Mr. Montgomery walks into her family’s Pittsburgh convenience store saying he can help her, Audrey doesn’t know what she’s expecting…but it’s definitely not that she’ll be transported back to 1812 to become a Regency romance heroine.


“Lucy Sinclair isn’t expecting to find an oddly dressed girl claiming to be from two hundred years in the future on her family’s estate. But she has to admit it’s a welcome distraction from being courted by a man her father expects her to marry—who offers a future she couldn’t be less interested in. Not that anyone has cared about what or who she’s interested in since her mother died, taking Lucy’s spark with her.


“While the two girls try to understand what’s happening and how to send Audrey home, their sparks make a comeback in a most unexpected way. Because as they both try over and over to fall for their suitors and the happily-ever-afters everyone expects of them, they find instead they don’t have to try at all to fall for each other.


But can a most unexpected love story survive even more impossible circumstances?.” 


This book is coming out on Aug. 29, 2023.


I’m definitely excited about this book considering that I love Lippincott’s other books. I like Pride and Prejudice in general, so with Lippincott coming out with a book not only about Pride and Prejudice but it taking place in Pittsburgh and involving a lesbian couple, really takes the cake for this one.


Rachael Lippincott’s books are phenomenal in my opinion. You should definitely check out some of her other books, especially her most recent one that she wrote with her wife She Gets The Girl.
