'Shipped' by Angie Hockman is a romcom that I recently enjoyed. I haven't read many books in this genre, but this book was recommended to me by a librarian friend. The misunderstandings and conflict between the love interests reminded me of Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. The strong characters and the modern eco-conscious message made me a fan of the author.
