Two bitter enemies end up anonymous pen-pals thanks to magical mail, and they find they have more in common than they thought. I never expected to cheer this hard for a main character who was an undertaker, and yet, it was a delight!
An orc gives up adventuring to open a coffee shop in a town that’s never heard of coffee. Soft, lovely, and filled with found family goodness.
Good Neighbors: The Full Collection: A Cozy-Spooky Fantasy Rom-Com in Four Parts by Stephanie Burgis
A soft, cosy collection of stories about a pragmatic inventor and the outlandish necromancer who lives next door.
So I was super late to this party, but I adored this book and the next one (A Court of Mist and Fury), and I’m working my way through the rest of the series. Magic, fae, a strong main character, an interesting world, and plenty of twists and turns!
When a woman inherits her great-uncle’s fortune, she didn’t expect his extended family to attempt to marry her off to a revolting cousin. When she draws an ancient, enchanted sword in an attempt to defend herself, she’s as surprised as anyone when a handsome man emerges from thin air to act as her champion. A delight!
