Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland (NY: Egmont, 2010).
Entranced by the romantic world of Pride & Prejudice, 12-year-old Polly Madassa sets out to find happy endings for many of the people in her life. She uses her summer job of delivering pastries for the family bakery to spy out potentials matches which she then nurtures with romantic suggestions--and chocolate danishes! Polly soon learns certain enduring truths about the bumps along the road to true love and has to force a dose of realism into her romantic daydreams.
