Lisa Maria Takes Off by Susan Hubbard, welcomes fans back to the world of Lisa Maria Marino. Since we last saw Lisa Maria, life hasnít changed much for her. Sheís still dating writer, McAllister and still writing her advice columns for the New Sparta Other.

As the story opens, Lisa Maria is winging her way to London. There she expects to find McAllister much the same way as he was back in New Sparta. To say what she gets is not what she expects is an understatement; one that could be applied to Lisa Mariaís entire London experience.

Lisa Maria has many adventures in London and fortunately for her makes one truly good friend Grace. When her relationship with McAllister takes a southerly turn itís to Graceís flat that Lisa Maria flees. Here Lisa Maria takes refuge and hides from the different aspects of her life which are unraveling.

Every woman would be lucky to have a virtual stranger become the type of good friend that Grace becomes to Lisa Maria. Their friendship is warm and caring. By the end of Lisa Maria Takes Off you will be wishing for a friend like Grace.

As to Lisa Mariaís relationship with McAllister and her precarious job position; I wish I could tell you. However, that would take away the fun of reading Lisa Maria Takes Off.

As I read I felt that Ms. Hubbard did a superb job of pulling me into the sights, sounds, and smells of London. London is a city Iíve always wanted to visit, and after reading Lisa Maria Takes Off I want to go more than ever.
