Rachel reintroduces Fleur to Guy years later, the attraction is strong
and they start dating. However, Fleur has a hard time believing that
the handsome and charming Guy will stay faithful to her and only her.
She's had some bad luck with her ex-boyfriend, who cheated on her. Now
Fleur wants Abby to keep an eye on Guy as they attend the same party,
one in which Fleur is unable to attend. Abby is reluctant to play spy.
Not only is it rude, but she can't help thinking that Guy has given
Fleur no reason to distrust him. He's been very solicitous and caring
when he's with Fleur, so Abby can't see what the problem is. Added to
that is Abby's growing attraction to Guy. He's funny, intelligent and a
genuinely decent man.
Abby's spy gig doesn't end with the party. With Rachel's engagement
party upon them, Abby is called in again to keep Guy under
surveillance. She's not at all happy about the position she's been put
in, but at the same time, a small, lonely part relishes spending time
with Guy. Not only is he turning into a friend, but he seems more than
happy to help Abby baby-sit her young brother Robbie. Unfortunately,
all good things come to an end, and when Guy finds out the truth, he is
justifiably upset, not only with Fleur, now his ex, but with Abby. It
seems like Abby has not only lost a new friend, but all chance for a
more intimate relationship. Opportunity isn't done knocking for Abby
and Guy though, and they get another chance to get it right. MAKING
MISCHIEF isn't the only thing Abby wants to make with Guy if she gets a
second chance at his heart.
Morland seems to be her own worst enemy and readers will identify with
her need to make her friends happy, while putting her own needs on
hold. She's a soft touch and it shows in her caring personality, the
way she constantly minds her younger brother or plays peacemaker in her
family. She's also a witty woman who wants to find happiness with the
right man. Elizabeth Young does a great job with Abby and Guy's growing
relationship, subtly building the attraction as the story continues.
Ms. Young also creates some snappy dialogue that will have you laughing
out loud. Abby's younger brother Robbie proves to be a great character
for comic relief and his antics will have you smiling. MAKING MISCHIEF
is the humorous story of what can happen when you keep secrets from
adolescence, and how those secrets may just come back to bite you in
