This book is part of a collection that has a mysterious magic shop in common. Each book is written as a separate world and can be read individually and in any order. And y’all this one is so very yummy!!! It is a fantasy set in a world where the supernatural are part of our everyday world, but maybe all is not as equal as it should be. The struggle of facing the past and not letting it color how we see our present is a constant theme in this book.
The slow build of this story is perfectly paced. As the romance grows between Cillian and Finnick, the mystery of Finnick’s past slowly reveals itself as well. There is such a beautiful balance between the sense of tension as the danger intensifies and the genuine sweetness of the interactions between our two awkward and shy main characters. My only disappointment was that I need a recipe for the Honey Bunnies that were almost their own character and definitely were a key in the romance plot! As if that wasn’t enough, the reveal of the villain in this story was a true surprise. Definitely a great book to dig into for fans of fantasy and romance.
